But in a tense hide-and-seek game inside an abandoned cattle shed, Elliot got the better of the killer and clobbered him on the head.

As a bloodied Billy staggered outside trying to get his bearings, he sat down on the edge of a well.

Billy… is alive?!

Not surprisingly, he lost consciousness and fell backwards and down 20 feet into the dark hole.

But, as Luci and Elliot said goodbye and went their separate ways, there was a shock for fans.

Billy was seen clambering out of the well and then slumping on its wall.

He was… alive!

How did viewers react to the twist?

However, as the twist took hold, viewers were baffled how the baddie managed to get himself out of the well.

One exclaimed: “#TheTourist and this was the point where a half decent thriller turned into a ridiculous farce.

“20 foot drop head-first into a well and climbs out.”

Another said: “#TheTourist Of COURSE the cowboy’s still alive!!!”
