Turns Out

Turns out is a bit that Merlin uses quite often when things are a lot different than they first seem on the surface. Like you think it is this, but it turns out that it is something else. There is also the possibility for a double-turns-out, triple-turns-out or quadruple-turns out. Episode 302 discusses this topic quite a bit and also introduces the concept of "And then what happens?" when you make a decision based on a surface-appearance of a thing, but as soon as you carried on with that decision, what will happen next? As it turns out, this thing will happen which you probably didn't take into account when you made the decision.

It is very difficult to link every occurrence of this bit, but they can be surfaced by doing a Google search.
