Can the plot be upended to shock the reader or a character?

In every scene and chapter, you have a chance to add a twist to the story, and those twists — the ones that deepen the conflict or change the expectations or introduce an insurmountable new problem — are what keep the reader interested. So, without wrecking your carefully constructed plot board, you might look for ways to take the story in a slightly different direction to keep it lively and interesting.
