The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

The Big Reveal

    The reveal (also known as the big reveal) is a plot device in narrative structure, and is the exposure to the reader or audience of a previously hidden key element of plot or of the performance. This may result in a plot twist, and could be the key plot turn or unexpected coda in the story – in the mystery genre, for example. It may also be used as a device (particularly in the climax) in stage magic by an illusionist or escape artist.[1]

In a magician's act, "the reveal" may refer to

  • the normal culmination of a trick
  • the unexpected (to the audience) culmination of the trick
  • an explanation of the trick – which itself may be immediately eclipsed by a version of the trick that the first reveal can't explain

A reveal is different from Aristotle's anagnorisis, in which something is revealed to a character rather than to the audience.
