'Breaking Dawn 2' Surprise Ending Confirmed & It's a 'Knife Twist' for Fans (VIDEO)

Flicks 19

Breaking Dawn 2Twilight fans, I'm sure you've been hearing some of the talk about Breaking Dawn 2's surprise ending, right? Kristen Stewart kicked the gossip into high gear back in September when she teased that "the end throws you for a loop, even if you're expecting it," but then it seemed like maybe the big shocker she was talking about was actually the rumored post-credits choreographed dance routine that involves all 150 cast members.

Well, we now have official confirmation there's at least something unexpected about the ending, thanks to Taylor Lautner and his recent chat with Jay Leno. If you're hoping to see the movie 100% unspoiled about the final moments, read no further! Otherwise, here's a roundup of some of the biggest hints the cast -- and the author herself -- have dropped about what we're going to see:

First, here's what Taylor told Jay Leno a few days ago: 

There's a very thin line, because the fans would freak on us if we changed anything too much, but I can confirm there is a twist, and I can confirm that everybody can find out what it is on November 16.

If you're good at sleuthing what's behind facial expressions, here's the video of Lautner's caaaaaaaaareful confirmation:

Stephenie Meyer offers a slightly better clue:

I wouldn't call it an alternate ending. The end was something we knew that had to be cracked. In a way, it's kind of offscreen in the novel because we only see what Bella sees. This was just a way of making visual what some of the other characters might have been seeing. It does feel very surprising ... There's definitely something new to see, but to me it doesn't seem like we're going hugely off the page at all.

Jackson Rathbone (Jasper) says you'd better take your potty breaks before the final minutes:

There are surprises, so I think we're all reticent about jumping on the spoiler alert train. The last 20 minutes are going to really be exciting for the fans.

Kristen Stewart has called the scene "crazy" and says it's an extra moment you don't get in the book :

There is an enormous shocking, sort of crazy surprise happening at the end of the movie that is not congruent with the book. Bill [Condon] closes it in a way that he really does twist a knife for anyone who may not want it to be over. I lost it!

You're like, 'Really it's over?' And we'll give you one more little—I love that thing, I think it's really great. And I love Bill for that.

As for Robert Pattinson, he says the scene works with the story, and says it's a happy ending but there's "odd drama":

When I first read the script, I got to that part and was like, ‘What?’ And then I had to go back a page. It does it a serious justice.

It's very strange, the ending, but it kind of works in a very bizarre way. You don't normally get a story where everyone has a happy ending. Which sounds kind of ridiculous but even if you tried to write a happy ending, it's kind of impossible. But Stephanie kind of figured out the through lines to make everyone have a happy ending. Which creates this very odd drama at the end. The ending is really sweet, it's probably the sweetest moment in the whole film. It's good.

Well, folks, what do you think? I'd guess that some critical person dies, except for the part about how it's actually happy. The references to "crazy," "bizarre," "strange," and so on make me think it's a moment that appears to be one thing while it's actually something else, so …. EDWARD GIVES JACOB THE KISS OF LIFE BUT SECRETLY SLIPS HIM SOME TONGUE! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

What are your best guesses for Breaking Dawn 2's twist ending?

I think the ending that's crazy, bizarre, and strange is Rosalie being pregnant ;) It's not supposed to be possible, but ya never know!

Heaven Wilkinson

i'll bet its jacob and renesmae's wedding

Glenna Hoyle

I think that Bella will introduce her Daughter to her Mother, Renee, so Renee can be involved in her Granddaughter's life

Rebec... Rebecca7708

It's a baby vampire/human/werewolf hybrid!

Well, we KNOW there's a battle scene that WAS NOT in the book...I so looked forward to Bella's line "I'm ALL OVER IT!", finally vampire strong and all. I figured the 'battle scene' was gonna be in a vision of Alice's, the reason she and Jasper left, this is from the book...but it was 'off page', in that we were just told Alice had a 'bad' vision. The sweet ending is Bella letting down her shield so Edward can read her mind, yes? I mean, if somebody dies, there'd be a witch-hunt! lol  Come on...

i think it could either be resemme and jacob or the other half vampire half human man( they bring to wittness )and resemme are coupled up in the end. who knows there has to be more to this saga it is such a box office hit how could summit just stop the story with the money they could make if they made another no matter what the plot people wil come to see it.

If you read the book, this should be easy; Bella turns her mind shielding power "inside-out" and Edward can finally read her mind and realize how much she really does love him.

Tiffany Borgerding

Im guessing that its the fight sequence in the end. We all know (who have read the books) that the Volturi and the vampires on the Cullen side never actually fight physically but in all the trailers you see them fighting. Im guessing that is what it is but i dont know!

 I don't have a clue, what it could be. Atleast,in the movie,they have the fight, that was missing in the book. For all we know, they could all be pregnant. Just kidding!!! Maybe, Jake & Ranesma, get married & they have a baby. It would be nice if, Rose, was pregnant, as bad as she wanted her own children. I guess we will find out, once we see the movie. This thing, we have been blessed in a small way, is going to be over, but what memories, we all share.group hug
