    It depends. Usually, it means "to end up" or "show up".

    Yes.
    It turned out that he was afraid of spiders. (We didn't know it earlier, but we know now)
    He went on a date with the girl he met on the Internet and it turned out that she was an old friend of mine. - He didn't know that she was an old friend of mine before the date.
    or
    Many students showed up on protest against fee rises. - Many students came to protest against fee rises.
    (But that are not the only meanings!)
