* ''Series/BlakesSeven'' killed regular character Cally out of shot in an explosion during the opening seconds of the fourth season, with only a dubbed-in scream reused from an earlier episode to indicate it. This was reportedly because the actor had left it until after the previous season had been completed to announce that she wanted to leave. (Although that was mainly because the BBC waited until after the previous season had been completed before announcing they wanted another one.)

** There's also Max Greevey, who died ''offscreen'' in the cold opening for the 2nd season premiere after George Dzundza left the show. Adding insult to injury, it wasn't even Dzundza we see fall - it was a body double.

** Total inversion with Claire Kincaid, in an episode without any investigation, but following the actions of the four leads after having witnessed an execution, Kincaid offers a ride home to a very drunk Detective Briscoe (Jerry Orbach). On the way there, her car is struck by a drunk driver and she's killed. Briscoe survives, and the shock of the event is enough to get him sober and in AA.

*** This did provide a very funny "no hard feelings" blooper when the actor who is announcing Hague's death to the other characters, a solemn moment in the script, says, "General Hague...is doing ''Deep Space Nine''. His agent double-booked him, there was nothing we could do."

** John Garrett, after ''multiple'' scenery-chewing speeches, KickTheDog moments and {{Next Tier Power Up}}s, gets yet ''another'' power boost (this time via PainfulTransformation), and rises stronger than ever, gloating at his new power with evil music rising... and then Coulson nonchalantly blasts him with a disintegrator ray. He doesn't even tell the rest of the team that Garrett nearly came back. It's implied that he'd had the blasted thing trained on Garret throughout the entire screaming process, and just ''let'' the megalomaniac mutilate himself prior to dispatching him for a touch of schadenfreude.

** Then in Season 4, [[spoiler:Laurel, the Black Canary and sister to Sara, is immobilized with magic and stabbed in the chest with one of Oliver's arrows. She then dies of an embolism in the hospital, after the doctors said she'd be fine no less. Given the importance of Black Canary in DC comics in general, and in Green Arrow in particular, and that this was a blatant case of StuffedIntoTheFridge people were once again pissed.]]

** It is rumored to be a backlash of McLeaned, as the actress who played Prue, Shannen Doherty, did not get along with the rest of the cast.

** Shaggydog, Osha and Rickon Stark. Here, we have the long, really long lost youngest member of the Stark family, his direwolf and the Badass wildling protector. The last we knew of them was that they went to to Last Hearth, House Umber's bastion. But then in Season 6 they revealed us that Smalljon Umber, betrayed them, killed the direwolf offscreen (offering it's head to Ramsay Bolton) and gave the woman and the boy to Ramsay as prisoners. Later, Ramsay was preparing to have some private time with Osha, who sneakily took a knife, hoping to use it against him, but he guessed her intentions, quickly took the knife and stabbed her. Rickon on the other hand, on the 9th episode, was brought to the battlefield between Bolton's and Jon Snow's forces. Ramsay told him to run to his brother along but then he started shooting arrows, until finally one of them pierced him through the chest. Viewers were not pleased.

** And, in the third to last episode of Season 5, [[spoiler: King Arthur]], BigBad of the season's first half, who was last seen imprisoned near the arc's end, unexpectedly reappears at the beginning of the episode only to have his neck snapped by Hades, BigBad of the current arc. Ironically this happens ''on'' a bridge. Somewhat subverted in that he is prominently seen in the underworld after this, where he does a HeelFaceTurn, helps defeat Hades, and presumably overthrows Cruella as new leader of the underworld to set things right there.
