(The) Plot Thickens
The phrase was first recorded in use during the 17th century and specifically in The Rehearsal (1671), a satirical play written by the statesman and poet George Villiers, the second Duke of Buckingham. Read about the interesting history by clicking here.
We use the phrase today to mean something just got a lot more interesting due to a twist, a conflict, a secret, etc.
