* The first episode of Season 2 of ''Series/Supernatural'' showed pretty much everything going wrong. [[spoiler: Sam and Dean's father dies to save Dean's life and the Colt, which can be used to avenge their mother, disappears with him.]] This prompts Sam and Dean to gather what clues they have into finish what their father had been working on for over twenty years.

Many shows have some form of structure to their seasons, rather than just being [[GenreAnthology collections of stories.]] This article mostly assumes that the series in question are US full-length series of around 20-25 episodes with some to low SeasonFluidity. Even in cases of BritishBrevity, the season opening and closing episodes will tend to be similar in style to those in the US, regardless of the season's length.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': "Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways", which ended with [[TheNthDoctor the regeneration of the Ninth Doctor]] into the Tenth Doctor and with Captain Jack Harkness being left behind on the space station for reasons the Doctor wouldn't explain until the Series ''3'' finale. (It should be mentioned that Doctor Who series only have 13-14 episodes per season, so this may not belong in this section.)

Episodes 15-16 of a season tend to fall around the time of (February) {{Sweeps}}, so networks will have big spectacular episodes to attract viewers. Plot shifts are not uncommon here, as these are the early installments of the "[[Front13Back9 Back 9]]" extension.
