If you're set up for this but it's then subverted by not revealing it, it's TheUnreveal. When made too obvious ahead of time, it's TheUntwist or a CaptainObviousReveal (depending on how it happens). If it comes out of nowhere and serves no purpose other than to be a twist, it's a ShockingSwerve and/or a case of TheDogWasTheMastermind. If the thing revealed is named in the title, then its TheNamesake. If a DrivingQuestion is involved, this is where it's finally put to rest. If it happens in the first episode of a series, it's probably a FirstEpisodeSpoiler. Can overlap with RememberedTooLate.
