Writers want to surprise the audience with a clever plot twist. But just like that time Billy Mumford trusted you with his shameful secret -- that he honestly thought Go-Bots were better than Transformers -- something inside them is itching to tell everybody. You may have ruined poor Billy's life by shouting his shame during that Yo-Yo assembly, but most creators are a bit more subtle. They like to reveal big secrets right there in their characters' names ...
6"Lois Einhorn" Gives Away The Twist In Ace Ventura
Ace Ventura is about a private detective who investigates a disappeared dolphin and discovers that Lt. Lois Einhorn, the woman whom he's been reporting to this entire time, is the culprit ... and also a man named Finkle. He then promptly throws up, because they made out a few scenes earlier.
And then the joke was never repeated in pop culture ever again. The End.
But if Ventura had taken his Ritalin long enough to finish a coherent thought, he could have seen the big twist coming. The reveal that Einhorn has a cock was likely met with shrugs and bemusement in Germany. See, in German. "Ein horn" means "one/a horn." Get it? Horn = penis.
You're gonna get it.
5"Remus Lupin" And "Sirius Black" Spoil Two Plot Twists In Harry Potter
Remus Lupin is introduced in the third Harry Potter as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. He handily wins Hogwarts Teacher of the Year by helping Harry to not die one time, and then giving him chocolate. (The uh ... the bar wasn't exactly set very high.)
Oh, and he's also a werewolf.
"I didn't tell you guys? Oops."
Hermione naturally figures it out, but there were so many clues to Lupin's true identity that even Ron should have raised his hand on that one. In Roman mythology, Romulus and Remus were the twins who founded Rome after being abandoned and raised by a female wolf. So the first "Remus" was a human who walked the earth as both man and wolf. His surname is Lupin, which is French for "wolf-like," so "Remus Lupin" essentially translates to "Wolf-like Wolf-man." Not super subtle.
Further, the entire movie revolved around the escape of one Sirius Black from Azkaban, Harry Potter's version of Alcatraz mixed with a haunted house. If Hogwarts had anything even close to traditional Muggle education, then Harry and the gang would've figured out that the black dog lurking in the shadows was in fact Sirius the whole time.
Or totally out in the open, not in the shadows at all.
Sirius, after all, is the brightest star in the night sky, part of the constellation Canis Major (Big Dog), also known as the Dog Star. So this missing man's name is basically "Black Dog," and there's a mysterious black dog around ...
Nah, it's probably nothing!
There's a reason Hogwarts isn't an accredited learning institution.
