1654: this capsulorhexis will radialize

Looking at this picture, the capsulorhexis appears to be proceeding well. It is round and intact and the resident is almost done completing it. So why would it split at the site shown by the yellow arrow? Is the eye in primary? Is the iris parallel to the floor? Is the capsulorhexis centered? Is this a dreaded “baby rhexis”? And if the capsulorhexis is intact at the beginning of the case, why does it radialize later? And in this surgery, I blame the attending surgeon for his/her lackadaisical attitude and failure to provide sufficient guidance throughout the case.
