So, you’re probably thinking, won’t this post make everything worse by asking everyone to share terrible spoilers they heard?!
Normally, yes you’d be right EXCEPT I thought about this is advance and have set up a few rules so no one is inadvertently spoiled by reading it. But, thanks for asking!!
Let’s Discuss: The Worst Spoiler You Ever Heard
I think having a book, movie or TV plot spoiled is something that’s almost a rite of passage. It happens to us all, and the first time typically stands out in the mind.
Because of the Internet, friends who can’t keep secrets or well meaning relatives (Mom, I’m looking at YOU), being spoiled is bound to happen at some point.
So, let’s discuss. I’d love to hear ONE of the following – the movie/TV show/book that was spoiled for you OR the nature of what was spoiled (plot twist, a death, something totally benign but you’re still upset about it)??
Like I said, to avoid spoiling others, please don’t give TOO many details.
Now, I’ll tell you the worst thing ever spoiled for me. Downton Abbey Season 3. Not one but TWO big plot twists were spoiled for me.
The worst part? I did it to myself. I was writing a blog post, which ironically I was careful to ensure contained NO SPOILERS!!, and I was googling for the best quotes when I found out all the secrets.
All of them. GAH! It was terrible. TERRIBLE.
I’m still recovering as you can tell.
Also, I accidentally spoiled a plot point in Gravity to my book club. I felt SO BAD. But it just slipped on out of my mouth without even thinking.
Plus, I’ve always wondered – how long does something have to be out – published or on air – for it not to be considered a spoiler anymore? I mean, I think everyone knows the twists in Star Wars and Fight Club at this point by now, right?
So tell me – what book or movie was spoiled for you OR the type of thing that was spoiled?!
