"Rian Johnson" is synonymous with the literary element of "Subversion". This term is usually used when a writer writes backward in the story to force a surprise on the audience. This move is typically viewed negatively by the audience due to the writing walking back on previously establish content, which most tentative audience members feel their attention to detail is not being rewarded.

This term was born after the release of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and is in reference to the Writer/Director Rian Johnson.
"Wow... I can't believe the Game Of Thrones directors Rian Johnson'd the show so Arya could kill the Night King as a surprise"
