** Episode 2 of the fourth series ends with the series' BigBad pointing a gun at Watson's head and about to fire. By the start of Episode 3, Watson just... shows up with Sherlock, no worse for wear, and it turns out it was just a tranquilizer shot. He barely alludes to the event and doesn't seem shaken by it at all.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' {{invoke|dTrope}}s the trope at the end of a chapter from a "Radioactive Man" film serial from the 1940's being screened at a comic convention. Earth is shown in the middle of an EarthShatteringKaboom, already clearly split in two by an atomic bomb when the action freezes and a narrator asks, "Will Radioactive Man be able to save the Earth in time?"

** The cliffhanger ending of Series VIII -- in which Rimmer is trapped aboard Red Dwarf as it disintegrates from a metal-eating virus and the rest of the crew have abandoned ship or escaped into the Mirror Universe -- was emphatically ''not'' resolved by the miniseries ''Back to Earth'', which instead begins with a title card saying "Nine Years Later". Given that the ship is intact and all the main characters are present and/or accounted for, it's ambiguous whether ''Back to Earth'' even follows the cliffhanger or if it follows an AlternateEnding.[[note]]"Only the Good..." had an AlternateEnding which can be seen on the DVD's [[DeletedScene Deleted Scenes]] in which the crew manage to find an antidote to the virus and clearly survive[[/note]]

* {{Aldnoah Zero}}s's first season ends with [[spoiler:Asseylum being shot multiple times in the back, complete with a slow mo shot of her body collapsing and her trademark pendant shattering, Saezbaun getting riddled with bullets in revenge for the above, Inaho shot point blank in the head by Slain after turning on him, and almost the entire supporting cast badly wounded and about to be attacked by overwhelming enemy forces. The second season reveals that literally ''no one'' died in season 1's final battle.]] While many were relieved, others complained that it completely ruined the tension of season 1's finale.
