*** [[PlotParallel It's also a contrast]] to the Doctor's subsequent unwillingness to forgive Ashildr/Me and the Time Lords in the Series 9 SeasonFinale (see above) in favor of getting {{Revenge}} upon the latter and trying to save Clara's life against all odds, which only causes sorrow for everyone until the Doctor, like Bonnie, gives up his quest and loses both Clara and his memories of her in the process. While neither the Doctor, Ashildr/Me, or the Time Lords explicitly seeks forgiveness from the other side(s) the cycle of cruelty is broken (for a while -- ''ComicBook/DoctorWhoSupremacyOfTheCybermen'' has Rassilon attempt {{Revenge}} but a ResetButton is pushed at the end when it gets way out of hand).

** Partly the case for the two Ferengi, who ended up in the Delta Quadrant by way of an unstable wormhole back in ''TNG''. They set themselves up as the prophesied Sages of a primitive civilization, reshaping it to Ferengi standards and profiting immensely. At the end of the episode, not only do they prevent the ''Voyager'' from returning home through that same wormhole, but they end up going through it themselves. While it's true that they want to go back to the planet and rule the people, the people are sick and tired of them and would likely try to burn them at the stake again. Yep, they're alive and get to go home, while the ''Voyager'' has to take the long way back. This ''may'' be averted, since their entry into the wormhole makes it even more unstable and it isn't entirely clear exactly where they ended up.
*** Given the fact that the Doctor indicates a season later that Starfleet had no idea what had happened to ''Voyager'', it's quite probable the Ferengi did not in fact make it back to the Alpha Quadrant. If they had, given the nature of the species, they almost certainly would have tried (and likely succeeded) to trade that information to Starfleet for profit.

** He also gets off scot-free for [[spoiler: killing the real Red John]]. At first, Abbott tried to prevent this, but he ended up giving in because he needed Jane and Jane (knowing this) held out for immunity.
*** Abbott gets one as well, with Jane's help, near the end of the series.

** It is played straight a few times, usually in cases where the killer is already dead (after living a full life, given the time gap on some of these cases) by the time the team cracks the case. Also, in "Fireflies", the one episode where [[spoiler: no one died]], the man who [[spoiler: shot a child in the head and left her for dead]] can't be punished because his crime, [[spoiler:not being a murder,]] is past the statute of limitations.

* ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'':
** Throughout the entirety of the show, Gina Linetti constantly skips out on her job, makes unwarranted sexual comments about Terry, insults Amy, and endangers herself and others through her recklessness and self-centredness (such as in Yippee Kayak, where she risks the entire police force's safety in a literal hostage situation by trying to make a flamethrower after being warned multiple times not to do so). However, she never faces any lasting consequences for the way she treats people. In fact, after explaining the (always completely justified) reason for acting the way she was (she was stressed after having a child, she was too busy studying to go to work), people often apologize to ''her''.

* An interesting case on ''Series/PairOfKings'' as Lanny is constantly trying to get rid of his cousins so he can become king of their island nation. His plans fail but he gets away with punishment because his cousins are not only [[UnknownRival oblivious to his scheming]] but consider Lanny a goofy friend trying to help. Rather than enjoy his lack of punishment, Lanny is instead infuriated that he's not even recognized as a threat.

** Barney is the biggest example. He does horrible things to woman all the time (lying to them, abandoning them, never calling them again, stealing from them, etc.) and always gets away with his actions scot free.

* ''Series/TheBlacklist'': In "The Cyprus Agency (No. 64)", the villain of the week is busted for kidnapping women and putting them in artificially induced comas while he has them impregnated with IVF and their babies placed through his adoption agency, for a hefty profit, of course. It turns out that [[spoiler: ''he'' is the father of all the babies in question, and his main motive was to leave his legacy in various homes. At the end, he's headed for prison, but he's perfectly happy, because unless his children all die without reproducing, he got what he wanted]].



* ''Series/Emmerdale'': Ross Barton has avoided a jail sentence or any kind of retribution of his nasty deeds, and yet his brothers Pete and Finn both have convictions against them despite being the better behaved brothers of the bunch.
