The Untwist mentions, at the bottom of the page, that examples aren't to be included because a sufficiently paranoid reader can foresee just about anything. I assume a second reason is to prevent people from complaining about shows they don't like. With that in mind, I'm not sure I see the purpose of this trope; it seems to be, "The Untwist, except it happens only because incompetent writing, and isn't occasionally a deliberate choice by a clever writer." Now, it might be that I'm just reading the trope description incorrectly, but at the very least, that should indicate it might need re-writing, right?
