*fantastic rare inversion in Holly Golightly stealth subversion in that she's a prostitute?

**traditionally, this trope applies to a surprise twist near the end, or else the plot has mostly been resolved, before the characters are hit with a cliffhanger *coughOUATSeasonOnefinalecough* but I thought that The Dark Knight also qualifies, not just for its ending, but also for the scene that the cap is from. It's mostly at the halfway point of the movie: the Joker is arrested, Gordon is alive, Gotham seems to be safe, Bruce is mourning Rachel, and Harvey is hospitalised. Several critics have pointed out just how easily the movie could have ended here, no harm done, enjoyable experience had, but Nolan goes one step forward and brings out the big guns of Two-Face and the Joker. Hello, Sir Knight, come to rescue the damsel? Sorry, wrong castle.
