@Nastya,
I think it does need the comma. It separates the two parts of the sentence.
Also, it has a slight effect on the "timing" of the sentence. It would not sound right if spoken "all in one breath".

@Nastya,
You don't need 'a' before surprise.

The comma is not needed. Neither is the “in a surprise.”
