* ''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.]]

* ''Series/WolfHall''
** 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]]

* In a late season eight episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', Amy makes a snarky comment about how Sheldon gets flowers for his mother, but all she gets is a mushroom plant. Given the events of the next episode, [[spoiler: which is the finale, where she gets fed up and dumps him just when he was going to propose to her,]] that scene takes on a whole new light.

** In "Murdoch at the Opera", the opera company's manager observes that while the dead singer was the understudy to the star, the younger woman was unlikely to go on in the lead role of ''Theatre/LaBoheme'' because the diva would sing on her deathbed. At the end of the episode, [[spoiler: the diva, who was also the culprit, took poison and sang her final scene in the opera on a bed as she was actually dying]].
** In "Murdoch on the Corner", a seemingly crazy beggar talks to himself incessantly, and one of his early phrases is "She's the one!" It turns out the culprit is a woman, [[spoiler: an apparently kindly pastor's widow]].

* 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.
