*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]].

----



* ''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".

* 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...
