** A similar occurrence happens at the end of ''Season 2, Episode 4'' - the party is lead into a MexicanStandoff with Arvo's family, and as tensions rise, Rebecca is revealed to have [[DeathByChildbirth succumbed to exhaustion after delivering her son]] and is slowly reanimating. You are then prompted to either shoot her, or warn Kenny - either way, bullets end up flying, and the screen cuts to black. Miraculously, this trope is revealed to be [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in terms of deaths at the beginning of episode 5 - well, [[AlasPoorVillain at least for Clementine's group.]]

* While ''[[VideoGame/TheWalkingDead The Walking Dead Telltale]]'' is no stranger to suspenseful cliffhangers, the finale is the most prominent example, if you decide to have Lee talk Clementine into shooting him to prevent him from turning. Unlike most examples, Lee's fate isn't ambiguous - he's KilledOffForReal.

** Claude nearly dies a dozen times, throws away a million dollars, and ends up having to shoot a helicopter out of the air to save her. Is Maria ''grateful''? Hell, no. Claude can be forgiven for realizing what a stupid move he made at that point and... "correcting" it.
