What's it's called when in soap operas and such, when a "good" person who has only ever been good to the other characters, is revealed to secretly be a bad guy - and once the audience knows this, the character then starts being obviously evil to other characters with no logical justification for their change in behavior, except that the audience now know this person is bad?

What in the blue fucking hell is "Dadolf Scmitler". Unless it's a Nazi pun I'm kinda lost. And even if it is, that's not helping matters much.

Does it matter whether The Reveal is a reveal for the audience as well as the characters?

Nah, I don't think it makes a difference.
