* Series/{{Dexter}} and his brother watch their mother and her drug-dealing buddies chopped to pieces with a chainsaw. Then they're left there for days. Neither of them grow up to be well-balanced individuals.
** The first time Dexter gets a flash of the repressed memory of his mother's murder at a similarly gruesome crime scene, it causes him to lose his cool and fall right into a pool of blood, leaving him covered in it. While adult Dexter is certainly not an innocent, the image works as a visual reference to the event that left him psychologically damaged.
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'': When [[spoiler: [[BoomHeadshot Kate]]]] is shot, Tony is sprayed with her blood. One of the saddest shots of the series.
* B.J. goes through this before even arriving at the 4077th ''Series/{{Mash}}'' in "Welcome to Korea", when he, Hawkeye, and Radar stop to help a group of soldiers on the side of the road.
* In ''Series/StateOfPlay'', Della moves from the "protect the story" angle to the "we need to help the police" side of the argument when the detective she'd gotten to know as a source was shot by a sniper in front of her.
* How about Sookie in like every. single. episode of ''TrueBlood''? To her credit, she usually gets over it pretty quickly. Or maybe that's just because it usually happens right at the end of the episode.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': "Your shirt..." To explain: [[spoiler:When Tara]] is fatally shot, [[spoiler:her]] [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth final concern]] is for [[spoiler:Willow]]'s ruined, blood-splattered shirt.
* An early episode of ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}'' had a flashback of Alpha's first rampage, during which we see Echo in the house showers drenched in the blood of the slaughtered people around her. Of course, being a doll, she is fairly oblivious to the fact that she should be traumatised (and barely even aware that there is anything wrong with the dead).
** The same episode opens with Topher, usually a self-contained smart-ass, covered in blood and stammering like a little kid about the killings he's just witnessed. [[spoiler: Topher gets this again in 2.11 when, not two minutes after kissing Bennett for the first time, he ends up with her brains all over his face.]]

* In the opening of the ''Series/CriminalMinds'' episode "Coda", an autistic boy is seen in profile, walking to the bus stop to catch his ride, just as he does at exactly the same time every day.

** J.J. got splattered with someone else's blood in a season five episode.
* A very angsty and emotional ''Series/{{CSI}}'' ep had Grissom covered in [[spoiler: Warrick's blood]] for a couple of scenes after [[spoiler: Warrick died]]. Grissom had held him to his chest and it got all over.
* There's an episode of ''Series/MadMen'' where Smitty the copywriter is riding a lawnmower around the office. Later Lois the secretary, one of the ne'er-do-wells of the office, takes a turn and accidentally runs over the foot of one of the British executives who have bought the company.

* In ''Series/{{Borgia}}'', Pope Alexander VI is covered in blood when [[spoiler:Cesare stabs a man right in front of him with TheLanceOfLonginus]]. While the Borgia pope can [[CorruptChurch hardly be called "innocent"]], it does seem to badly unsettle him and affect how he sees his family.

* Happens to Reba in the film and book versions of ''Literature/RedDragon''. Blood splatters across her face when Dolarhyde shoots himself with a shotgun in front of her. [[spoiler:Or so she thinks. He ultimately couldn't bring himself to kill her, but he needed a way to spare her life and still fake his own death and escape, so he blew the face off someone he murdered earlier that night, which she couldn't see due to being fully blind.]]
