* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' pilot episode "[[Recap/StarTrekS1E0TheCage The Cage]]". While talking with Doctor Boyce, Captain Pike talks about the battle on Rigel Seven and two activities he might partake in after retiring: going on a picnic on Earth or becoming an Orion trader. Each of these is used as the basis for one of the telepathic illusions the Talosians use on him later.

* The new ''Series/DoctorWho'' series always foreshadows its season finale as early as the second episode of the season. It uses, however, very (very, oh so very) cryptic foreshadows like "Bad Wolf" or "Doctor-Donna". Whenever psychics are in, expect to hear a lot of complete nonsense that will finally be put together in the final episode.
** In the Series 3 episode "Utopia", the whole episode is pretty much foreshadowing of [[spoiler: the return of the Master]]
*** Which started a lot sooner than that: when [[spoiler: the Face of Boe tells the Doctor YouAreNotAlone, many fans' thoughts instantly jumped to the Master.]]
*** Even better, the ''[[AllThereInTheManual 2006]]'' [[AllThereInTheManual annual]] has this:
-->[[spoiler:And far away, across the universe, on the planet Crafe Tec Hydra, one side of a mountain carries carvings and hieroglyphs, crude representations of an invisible War. The artwork shows two races clashing, one flesh, one metal; a fearsome explosion; and a solitary survivor walking from the wreckage. Solitary? Perhaps not. Under this figure, a phrase has been scratched in stone, which translates as: ''YouAreNotAlone...'']]
** The Series 3 story "Daleks In Manhattan"[=/=]"Evolution of the Daleks" has a musical routine featuring the specially-written song "My Angel Put the Devil In Me". The lyrics very clearly describe the relationship between Lucy and the Master in the season's finale "Utopia"[=/=]"The Sound of Drums"[=/=]"Last of the Time Lords".
** A very subtle bit of foreshadowing happens in the Christmas episode of Season 4. When the tourists of the Titanic teleport down to Earth for a brief visit, the temporary companion for the episode, Astrid, exclaims that there are ''no stars in the sky!'' [[spoiler: The season long story arc of Season 4 centres around the stars disappearing in the sky. Russell T. Davies, I never knew you had it in you.]]
** The taxi which tries to pick up Stacey Campbell in "Partners in Crime" has an ATMOS sticker, a blink-and-you'll-miss-it piece of foreshadowing to "The Sontaran Stratagem".
** "Silence in the Library" foreshadows "The Time of Angels" (and presumably a few more) through a throwaway line from River.
** Series 5's "The Vampires of Venice" ends with [[spoiler: the villain of the week telling the Doctor to dream of her and her race, a subtle foreshadow of what the next episode is about.]]
** And in the next episode, watch what Rory replies after the Doctor says "I've crushed your flowers". [[spoiler: He replies "Oh, Amy will kill you". Later on Amy and the Doctor commit suicide to get out of the dream, with Amy driving the car into the house at high speed.]]
** In "The Hungry Earth", Rory goes to put Amy's engagement ring back in the TARDIS for safekeeping, saying "Go on, I'll catch you both up". [[spoiler: At the end of the double episode, Rory is killed. By "The Pandorica Opens", however, he's been resurrected as a Nestene duplicate, thus "catching up" to the Doctor and Amy later in their time-stream, also, in "The Big Bang" he then waits for nearly two thousand years beside Amy's stasis-locked corpse for the Doctor and Amy's younger self to show up and re-animate her. He caught up with them twice!]]
** Although the Classic series wasn't done in the same cinematic style as the new ''Series/DoctorWho'', there is subtle foreshadowing to be found (some of it may be unintentional though).
*** The Third Doctor's regeneration may have been foreshadowed by Sarah Jane in ''The Monster of Peladon''. In one scene she says, "The Doctor always says that while there's life, there's..." She trails off, letting the sentence hang in midair, the word 'hope' left unspoken. In the very next episode ''Planet of the Spiders'', the Doctor's final words to her are, "While there's life, there's..." He loses conciousness just then and never finishes the sentence. He regenerates a moment later, making those his last words before his 'death'.
** In the series 7 episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E5TheAngelsTakeManhattan "The Angels Take Manhattan"]], Rory [[spoiler:leaves himself vulnerable to attack by a Weeping Angel when he's momentarily distracted by a tombstone with his name on it]]. This foreshadows the finale, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor "The Name of the Doctor"]], in which the Doctor says that [[spoiler:the one place a time traveller must ''never'' visit is his own grave, which the Doctor is forced to do that episode]].
** Clara also violated that one rule, before she was even a permanent companion: [[spoiler:the first time we see present-day Clara, she is standing by a tombstone for her Victorian version]].
** The Eleventh Doctor's regeneration episode reveals that ''his entire tenure as the Doctor'' had been rife with foreshadowing, literally from day one: [[spoiler:the crack in Amy's wall turned out to be caused by The Time Lords trying to get back to our universe. Or, more accurately, caused by the Silence blowing up the Tardis to try and stop the Doctor from bringing the Time Lords back to our universe, inadvertently giving them the very passage they needed.]]
** In the Series 8 episode "Kill the Moon", the Doctor remarks that even everyday activities such as crossing the road can be dangerous. [[spoiler:A few episodes later, Danny neglects to LookBothWays and gets run over by a car.]]

* ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent''. In "The Healer", a voodoo priestess warns Det. Logan: "You think before was bad, Detective? Just you wait." In Logan's next episode, "To the Bone", Logan [[spoiler: shoots an undercover cop, which leads to Captain Deakins being accused of recommending a promotion for a cop in exchange for backing Logan's account of the incident (in fact, Deakins was set up by Frank Adair, a former friend & ex-cop, whom Goren and Eames arrested for murder in "My Good Name".) As a result, Deakins resigns.]]

*In ''Series/KamenRiderDecade,'' Eijiro is ironing something, red on one side and black on the other, and makes the comment about another character that we all have a side of ourselves we keep hidden. [[spoiler: The scene ends with him tapping Kivala with the hot iron (something that won't be ''really'' painful, and something she probably had coming, but a bit harsh for the warm, fatherly figure he's been until now and will be for the rest of the series.) But come TheMovie ''All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker,'' Eijiro is revealed as the old-school BigBad who wore a cape that was black on the outside and red on the inside: Dr. Shinigami]].

* ''Foreshadowing/GameOfThrones''
[[/index]]
----



* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The discovery of stag-direwolf MutualKill in "Winter Is Coming" is obviously a bad omen even in-universe.
** Theon is all too eager to kill a direwolf, the sigil of House Stark, in "Winter Is Coming".
** Cersei's mention of her black-haired firstborn in "The Kingsroad" draws some attention to her three blond children.
** In "The Kingsroad", Jaime tells Tyrion, "But even if the boy lives he would be a cripple, a grotesque. Give me a good, clean death any day." In "Walk of Punishment", Jaime loses his sword hand and briefly his will to live.
** When Doreah talks of what she's seen, she mentions a dragonglass dagger (like those Sam finds) and a man who can change his face (like Jaqen H'ghar).
** Arya must shoo her direwolf Nymeria to save her from the Lannisters in "The Kingsroad". In "The Pointy End", Arya herself must also flee to escape the Lannisters.
** In "The Wolf and the Lion", Ned comments that if the king did as he liked all the time, he'd still be fighting a rebellion. He was speaking specifically of Robert's delight for battle, but in a different context accurately presages the outbreak of civil war in part due to Joffrey's capricious actions as king.
** Cersei justifies her incest in "You Win Or You Die" by invoking the precedent of the Targaryens, several of whom went mad, which, when paired with Joffrey's RoyalBrat behaviour, foreshadows the kind of uncontrollable lunatic Joffrey becomes.
** In "The Pointy End", Bran assures Rickon, "They'll be back soon. Robb will free Father, and come back with Mother," but Rickon eerily replies, "No, they won't.
** Daenerys taking scalding hot baths and picking her dragon eggs out of a lit brazier foreshadow what she does in "Fire and Blood".
** Loras' suggestion that Renly could claim the throne with the support of the Tyrell armies and wealth becomes a reality by "Fire and Blood".
** In "The North Remembers," Tyrion whistles "The Rains of Castamere," an in-universe song that appears more fully in "Blackwater" and becomes the series' leitmotif for whenever a Lannister does something particularly awesome, evil, or both.
** In "The North Remembers", Melisandre makes a chilling prophecy that after the long summer darkness shall fall heavy on the land, the cold breath of winter will freeze the seas, and the Dead shall rise in the North. Switching forward to the season finale...
** In "Garden of Bones," Melisandre says, "Look to your sins, Lord Renly. The night is dark and full of terrors." By the end of the episode, she gives birth to a terrifying shadow that assassinates Renly.
** In "The Old Gods and the New", Xaro speaks of doing some unpleasant things to become what he is, then opens the doors to his estate to find the guards killed and Dany's dragons stolen. In "A Man Without Honor", it is revealed that Xaro was an accessory to this crime.
** In "Walk of Punishment", Theon's torturer uses his last words to call Theon's rescuer a "little bastard." It is later revealed in "Mhysa" that the rescuer is Roose Bolton's bastard son Ramsay Snow. That the rescuer is not who he says is also foreshadowed by his use of the phrase "my lord." Tywin Lannister points out to Arya Stark during the previous season that the smallfolk use the wording "milord."
** In "The Rains of Castamere", Walder Frey promises that "wine will flow red," the hall doors close ominously, and the band starts playing the pro-Lannister song "The Rains of Castamere", all as a prelude to a bloody slaughter.
** In "The Lion and the Rose", Lord Mace Tyrell presents the groom with a goblet and the words "May you and my daughter Margaery drink deep, and live long." Later that day Joffrey drinks from a cup and drops dead.
** In that same episode Olenna sympathetically tells Sansa how sorry she is to hear about her brother and mother's deaths at the Red Wedding and tells her how horrid it was to do it at a wedding. Twenty minutes later Joffrey is poisoned at his own wedding and a few episodes later we learn it was Olenna who helped plot his murder.
** When he first becomes Master of Coin in Season 3, Tyrion mentions that the Iron Bank of Braavos will fund the enemies of anyone who doesn't pay them back. In Season 4, even though the Lannisters have not yet ceased repayment, the Iron Bank agrees to provide one such enemy Stannis with enough coin to keep his claim alive just in case.
** Olenna Tyrell's line to Cersei in "And Now His Watch Is Ended" takes on new meaning in light of her conspiracy with Littlefinger to murder Joffrey in "The Lion and the Rose".
--> '''Olenna:''' We mothers do what we can to keep our sons from the grave, but they do seem to yearn for it.
** Bronn refuses to be Tyrion's champion against The Mountain, noting that while he could outmaneuver the big guy and wear him down, just one slip-up on Bronn's part and he'd be a dead duck. This is a pretty accurate description of what eventually happens when Oberyn takes Gregor Clegane on.
** Tyrion tells Shae he would kill for her and suspects he will before everything's said and done. The final straw that causes Tyrion to murder his own father is Tywin repeatedly insulting Shae by calling her a whore. Ironically, Tyrion had already killed Shae herself at this point.
** Petyr tells Robyn Arryn: "People die at their dinner tables. They die in their beds. They die squatting over their chamber pots." The first example applies to Joffrey (who had already died), but the other two examples seem to foreshadow the deaths of Shae and Tywin two episodes later.
** In "Blood of my Blood," Bran has visions of Aerys II Targaryen, a.k.a. The Mad King, shouting, "Burn them all!" and of wildfire raging through a tunnel. The latter seems to have been a premonition of Cersei destroying the Sept of Baelor in "The Winds of Winter".
