A TWIST ENDING takes a sudden, unexpected turn. It might shock, surprise, or delight you. It might even enrage you! According to Vera Tobin, a cognitive scientist at Case Western Reserve University, our brains are constantly trying to predict what will happen next—both in real life and in the stories we read. When something unexpected happens, our brains perk up . We instinctively try to understand why in order to make more accurate predictions in the future. So after a twist ending, we go back through the story, looking for clues to piece together what happened.
