* If an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' has its cold open on the holodeck (and it's not a HolodeckMalfunction), the program will indicate the theme for that episode. In "Devil's Due," for example, Data is playing the scene with Scrooge and Marley's ghost--the power of fear and sensory illusion are a big part of the episode's plot. In "Clues," Picard plays one of his Dixon Hill stories with Guinan, and (if the title wasn't a, [[CaptainObvious you know]]) the rest of the episode is about a shipwide mystery that human nature compels them to solve.

* When the TV special ''[[Theatre/TheWiz The Wiz Live!]]'' opens by showing Aunt Em's farmhands at work, the dialogue foreshadows which characters from ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'' their respective actors will play when Dorothy goes to Oz: Robert (David Alan Grier, the Cowardly Lion) cowers in fear at Toto, prompting John (Music/NeYo, the Tin Man) to call him a "big, ol' scaredy-cat", to which Robert retorts, "You go ahead and laugh, he can't bite through that brace on your leg." Sticks' (Elijah Kelley, the Scarecrow) lines make him sound like the brains among the farmhands, as he suggests tearing down and rebuilding a fence that constantly needs fixing, and also becomes the first to question Dorothy's plans to run away back to her birthplace.

** There are other occassions seperate from these that foreshadow their relationship like Chandler calling Monica the most beautiful woman he's ever known [in real life] in a flashback when they almost sleep together. (When they actually sleep together he say's she's the most beautiful woman in most rooms). He also shows a preference to take off her bra over the other girls in Season 3, she gives him sex advice in Season 4 (when they get together he's 'the best she's ever had') and their NoSenseOfPersonalSpace habits throughout the first half of the series. As the writers claim they had no plans for Chandler/Monica its tricky to tell if it's HeartwarmingInHindsight or actual foreshadowing.

* ''DawsonsCreek'', especially in the third season and regarding the Pacey/Joey/Dawson love triangle. It's mainly foreshadowed in dialogue between Pacey and Jen, with lines such as "the sidekick never gets the girl" or "what does (Joey) have that all men seek her?" (or something to that effect).
* ''BeverlyHills90210'', third season as well: Dylan seems oddly concerned about Kelly dating a guy he thinks is not good enough for her. Then, when Brenda leaves to Paris, Dylan is seen walking with Kelly. Then guess what happens...

* In ''[[Series/{{Forbrydelsen}}]]'', when Theis comes to work after everyone's learned that his daughter has been killed, his right-hand man and best mate Vagn enters his office and the only thing he says is "Theis, I don't know what to say." After an awkward moment, Theis starts talking about business and Vagn goes back to work. [[spoiler: What's significant about this is that Vagn, who is practically a member of Theis's family, doesn't offer Theis a single sympathetic word or gesture. The reason he doesn't, and why he can't think of anything to say, is that he's the killer.]]
** In the same show, before anyone has discovered that Theis's daughter is dead, Theis and Vagn are standing outside the house Theis is renovating for his family and Theis jokes "There's a room for you, too, in the basement." [[spoiler: The basement of the house is where Vagn raped Theis's daughter before taking her away to kill her.]]

** Going out for the day, Thomas Cromwell sees his wife at the top of the stairs and turns to speak to her, but she's gone. The night before, his youngest daughter wears her costume angel wings to bed, and he seems both amused and troubled by the sight. It's the last time he sees them alive--they die of the Sweating Sickness while he's gone.
** Catherine of Aragon is aghast that Henry believes their daughter Mary would rebel against him, especially when Cromwell says she's been conversing with the ambassador for the Holy Roman ambassador--"What does Henry imagine? Mary, returning with an army, turning him out of his Kingdom?" After Henry VIII and then his son Edward VI die, Mary would return and depose Edward's successor.
** At the end of Episode 5, while Cromwell is considering how to get rid of Anne, Wolsey appears as an hallucination and states that it was his failure to give Henry a new wife that killed him. Four years later, Cromwell would be executed for arranging the failed marriage between Henry and Anne of Cleves.[[note]]Or rather, his enemies took advantage of Henry's anger to convince him that Cromwell had done it for treasonous motives.[[/note]]
