Plot twists and big reveals you solved by yourself

 Pages 1 2 3 4 NEXT
 

So in any movies/games/plays/books you've read, played or seen, did any of them have any twists that you managed to solve and guess before they were actually revealed?

I mean, anyone who saw The Empire Strikes Back in cinema, did you ever guess that

I guessed the whole big plot twist at the end of The Sixth Sense.

Video games are easy to predict, especially when a character is going to die.
There is one character I keep guessing will die, but to my surprise hasn't yet.

The Halo rings weren't meant to destroy the Flood.

Also... The Flood will return in Halo 4-6 and what you have to do is reverse what the Halo rings do.

I'M CALLING ON IT.

I knew who Miranda Tate really was the instant she walked on screen in Dark Knight Rises

In several cases, in shows and movies, there will be an off-hand mention of a 'thing' which is important-but-not-relevent. That thing will be important in handling some important aspect of solving the plot and I can usually pick them out.

Really? That's some super sleuthing to guess that early on, I guessed when she was tending the fire and talking about her family.. :|

M. Night Shyamalan film "The Village but in saying so it wasn't that hard.

I dunno if I was supposed to already know (it was pretty obvious) but I knew straight away that

My friends hate me because I have a bad knack to figure out twists in almost every movie I watch and game I play. I guess I just over-analyze fiction. Here's a good example of my prowess (Old Boy Spoiler):

Sean Hollyman:

Actually, it was earlier than that. Once I heard that Liam Neeson would be reprising his role in the film, I realized what they would be doing.

Soviet Heavy:

Didn't you then know it before the film came out? Really, what kind of a clue is her walking on screen? I figured it instantly with the "I want to bring balance" line, a little too transparent.

While not exactly a plot twist, because there aren't any on my mind right now, Avengers had a stupidly predictable ending to the whole invasion thing. The moment they start showing the government people on the monitors, before they even say one thing, it became exceedingly clear what's going to happen in the next few minutes. Man, Avengers, why are you making it so hard for me to like you.

Final Fantasy 13

See above. Once Liam Neeson was confirmed to be in the film, I put it together.

As for the Avengers, I thought it was fun but so damn predictable. It had the same basic plot as the Justice League Unlimited Series finale, except replace Loki with Darkseid, and the hero vs hero tension with Hero vs Villains working together tension.

Final Fantasy 13

Yeah I saw that coming too.

That would've been an awesome scene had they not fucked that up.

OT: Silent Hill: Homecoming.

There's a name for that.

OT: Usually, no, I'm not very good at that. If its a really tired and old cliche story I can figure it out though. Also, when the villain is a traitor and the actor who plays him fails to understand the meaning of subtlety. Oh, you killed that guy before he could explain what he was doing even though he gave up? Yes, you're totally not hiding anything!

That or MacGuffun Delivery Service.

Yeah, don't be suprised; Uncharted is a fun series. It's a videogame that takes inspiration from old cinema and literature. Everything works out for the hero at the end and he gets the girl. Hell, he managed to get the same girl three different times.

I've gotten pretty good at solving murder mystery/police procedural TV shows. The person who done it is usually someone who has unnecessary dialogue. TV is on a fairly strict schedule, and they like to develop the person who did it before the big reveal. Teenage children introduced and given a personality? Suspicious. Ditto for coworkers who aren't immediately considered suspects by the protagonists.

I also called Katie Holmes' death in Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. I mean come on, she's a stepmother.

This newest season of Breaking Bad isn't as crazy to me as the previous seasons. I'm sort of guessing what will happen next and most of the time i'm right. But I guess you just get a feel for the show and the direction it goes when you watch it for 4 seasons.

There was one movie famous for it's crazy twisting plot (I think it was Virtigo, but I can't remember) that I figured out the entire plot except for some small details out in the first 15 minutes.

Knights of the Old Republic as a 15 year old.

The Cabin in the Woods most recently


Kind of left me disappointing cause all my friends were calling "Best twist eva!" Hardly I say... Good movie though

My friend called the twist in From Paris with Love in the first 5 minutes. I don't know if that made the film predictable and me dense or if it came from his heavy knowledge of spy and espionage films.

If Frank Woods from Black Ops had a smell, it would have been enough to know what would happen to him, including Black Ops 2.
Also, Limbo. You know, with the whole Limbo thing.

LostGryphon:
Knights of the Old Republic as a 15 year old.

This. I still don't understand how this is considered a good twist when it was so obvious almost from the start.

Well I was watching Fairy Tail last night and I figured out what the main villain was up to long before the heroes did. In fact the heroes never really did figure it out until it was pretty much complete. Which actually disappointed me, Erza I expected better from you. For those who also watch the show, I'm talking about the Tower of Heaven arc.

The last 30 seconds of The Dark Knight Rises?
Yeah, saw that the moment they cast Joseph Gordon-Levitt as "John Blake".

Oh man, I do this all the time, but the one that comes to mind is an old movie called Paycheck. I remember it because I was watching it with my family, TOTALLY called something, was mocked, and then was proven right. Very satisfying.

Anyway, it wasn't a huge plot twist or anything, I just managed to figure out that Ben Affleck's character had given up his multi-million-dollar paycheck in order to force his future self to pay attention to the assortment of crap he'd left behind.

Yeah, that's all I can think of.

LostGryphon:
Knights of the Old Republic as a 15 year old.

Exactly the same. Well, I was 14 at the time, though. And most people I've talked about it also got it. People around my age at the time.

Only recently did I start seeing people surprised by that plot twist. And that is since I started coming here, where more people talk about KotOR.

Other than that, the Mass Effect thing. I didn't "solve" it as much as it was so boring and unoriginal, that I couldn't even bother trying to be excited which of stories I already knew did BioWare put into the game.

Unfortunately I had the twist ruined for me before I played the game D:

Figured out Kotor's twist roughly around the time I entered the Rakatan tomb thingy on Dantooine (which is to say, early).
Figured out Kane's sled when the thing appeared on screen and I saw the rosebud on it.
Figured out Fight Club pretty early on.
That about it.

...I...I don't want to think about The Flood being in the new trilogy. If the new trilogy includes actual boss fights than I would be willing to accept The Flood in 4 if Gravemind is the final boss and killing it results in The Flood dying out or something.

I can't really think of anything that I was able to guess from the beginning...There was the one twist in Sweeny Todd that was easy enough to guess but that's about it for me.

Obvious one from Dark Knight Rises

In Black Ops I instantly suspected the whole Reznov thing when he was in that save room.

And in Unthinkable I suspected more bombs that he was admitting to pretty much from the start. Just seems something you want an ace in the hole for...

But usually I'm extremely dense about stuff like this, which I like because imo movies and such are more fun that way. Love those moments that make you go "Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat".
