1. Time Traveling - This is Us

Time Traveling - This is Us
When we found out that the little boy, Jordan, was not going to be Randall and Beth's new foster child, but was actually a kid in the future and Tess was his social worker, it was an amazing twist. Viewers never saw that coming! It didn't even occur to many that This Is Us would flash forward to the future since it usually flashes back to the past.

2. A Surprise Affair - A Million Little Things

A Surprise Affair - A Million Little Things
Eddie and Delilah's affair was a punch to the gut to their friends and family, especially considering Jon's death and the role the affair may have played in it! But it was a great twist that keeps the drama coming with new fallout every week, from Eddie's friends turning on him to Delilah discovering she's pregnant.

3. An Unlikely Addict - Chicago PD

An Unlikely Addict - Chicago PD
Antonio Dawson has always been the level headed one who keeps Voight from going too far, so his addiction to painkillers was a surprise. Even better was the final scene of the 2018 fall finale, which left Eva's kidnapper dead thanks to a drugged-up Antonio and Voight and Ruzek left holding the bag. We can't wait to see what happens next thanks to this plot twist!

4. Blast From the Past - Riverdale

Blast From the Past - Riverdale
Riverdale is always one giant, juicy plot twist! But one of the best twists in 2018 involved a story set in the past to explain the origins of the Gargoyle King. Who would have thought that mild-mannered Fred helped cover up a murder, Alice had once been the most rebellious girl in Riverdale High, or that Penelope Blossom was ever part of the parents' social group?

5. A Fake Death - You

A Fake Death - You
The always-creepy You did it again by having Candace turn out to be alive. While this was always a possibility, her walking into the bookstore in the final seconds of the final episode of 2018 left viewers excited and hungry for more.

6. Predetermination - God Friended Me

Predetermination - God Friended Me
Viewers were surprised by the Fibonacci spiral showing them that all of the God Account's friend suggestions were predicted before they happened! As a bonus, this plot twist occurred the week before the mid-season finale, making fans eager to see whether the reveal would lead to finding Falken.
