"Sometimes it arrives when you least expect it."

Translation:Talvolta arriva quando meno te l'aspetti.

why is the indirect object pronoun version of tu used here? why not "ti"?


Because lo is the direct object, contracted to l', and te becomes an indirect object. This is apparently a form of the verb aspettarsi. You can see some examples here: http://www.wordreference.com/iten/aspettars
