^^ Well, if I had to find out something early, I'm glad it was Khan rather than Spock, which was a much better surprise, or the STII echo, which was a real heart-tugger as I realized what was going on (Spock, you'd better hurry!), and beautifully acted as well. Khan wasn't exactly an idea out of left field.
I do regret finding out about Pike beforehand. That happened on tumblr of all places - unexpected because the only bloggers I follow are into Kpop, lol.
All things considered, I think I came out pretty well.
So we're good.

But don't make me come over there. No naked spoilers outside of this thread! Warnings! Apocalypse! Dogs and cats living together! Etc.
