What are you referring to - when the room moderator re-quoted Hillary in case the panel didn't hear it?
That explanation would make perfect sense were it not for the fact that the question being asked was completely unrelated to the clip being shown and the audience member regurgitated exactly what she whispered prior to asking it.

Are you watching the same clip as I am?

I'm not sure what to make of this. If she were simply whispering to that woman what Hillary had just said in the clip then I find it strange that they would ask the first question to a person who didn't even hear what she's supposed to comment on.

She's telling the people about the question she's about to ask to give them a moment of prep before having them interviewed in front of millions of people.

It's a common practice to give people—especially people who are not often on camera—the question ahead of time so they can think about their answer.
