* In the AgentsOfSHIELD episode [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E3MakingFriendsAndInfluencingPeople "Making Friends and Influencing People"]], Whitehall has former SHIELD agent Agent 33 imprisoned in a machine, [[{{Brainwashed}} brainwashing]] her into serving HYDRA. While Whitehall is giving a [[BreakThemByTalking speech]], Agent 33 manages to get a hand loose... only for Whitehall to spot it, and causually resecure her, without even breaking his speech. Given that the brainwashing is meant to break the prisoner so they can be reprogrammed, it's likely this Hope Spot was a deliberate part of the process.

** "Hell Bent". The Doctor has become a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds thanks to this TraumaCongaLine and via BatmanGambit manages to [[spoiler: pull Clara out of time at the moment of her death, violating a fixed moment in time]]. He's overjoyed at the prospect of new adventures, brainstorming wacky new ideas like "cocktails with Moses" and inventing a flying submarine -- but then he learns that [[spoiler: she isn't fully returning to life]]...and the universe may well start falling apart soon, and it will be all his fault. He doesn't give up his quest just yet, but several conversations later he has a HeelRealization and accepts that his desire to [[spoiler: staying with her forever]] is just a TragicDream that he must give up.

Ultimately, [[spoiler: Clara is able to continue "living" in her not-quite-dead state for as long as she likes, but this is technically not a hope spot as she is well aware that some day she will have to voluntarily return to the point of her death.]]

** "Face the Raven"'s climax has several of these when it's revealed that Clara [[spoiler: MUST die by quantum shade in the next few minutes]] thanks to her too-confident efforts to save Rigsy from his death sentence. She's still confident that the Doctor can fix this situation by finding another way to [[spoiler: remove the chronolock]]...but he can't. He angrily threatens the mayor responsible for Rigsy's situation with a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against them ''and'' all the trap street residents if this isn't fixed immediately...but Clara talks him out of it (because he would cross the MoralEventHorizon if he did) '''and'' asks if there's ''anything'' that can be done in the first place -- there isn't. Thus, [[spoiler: Clara dies a painful death]] while the Doctor is delivered to what turns out to be a torture chamber and begins a ProtagonistJourneyToVillain that unfolds over the next two episodes, culminating in the events of...

* ''Series/Degrassi'': Rick comes to school with a gun after being pranked by Jay, Spinner, and Alex, and the first person he meets is Paige. He slowly starts pulling out the gun...but stops when Paige says that the prank pulled on him was childish and unnecessary. He apologizes for hurting Terri, and then goes to his locker and puts the gun away, seemingly having calmed down. But while he's in the bathroom trying to clean up, Jay and Spinner stage a conversation framing Jimmy for the prank, and Rick snaps again, which ends with Jimmy getting shot and Rick getting killed by Sean in a struggle for the gun.

* ''{{Series/CSI}}'': During the multi-part episode of "Grave Danger", there's a really cruel and clever one of these. At one point, the CSI's think they've found where Nick has been BuriedAlive. They start digging, and at exactly the same time, Nick can hear a scraping sound from outside the box. The team get really excited when they realise that the thing they're digging up a plexiglass box, and Nick starts banging on the box and calling out to them, clearly ecstatic that he's about to be rescued. [[spoiler:The box the CSI's dig up contains a dead dog, and the scraping sound Nick was hearing was actually the box cracking, as he'd weakened it by shooting out the light.]]

*** To be fair, [[spoiler:he still comes back to keep his promise.]]



*** Not to mention [[spoiler: Locke's apparent resurrection by the Island after the Ajira crash. Instead of rematerializing as Ben's personal [[TheChewToy chew toy]], he shows some backbone and bosses ''Ben'' around, seemingly living up to the "special" status he'd hoped for. Unfortunately, NewAndImproved Locke is just the Man in Black in disguise, meaning the real, unspecial John Locke really ''did'' die tragically a half-season earlier.]]
