This trope can be frustrating if, until this resolution, the first plot had been portrayed as being a very difficult situation to deal with, only to be quickly solved now that the plot demands it. There are several ways around this--the main one is to turn the old problem into a sort of WorfEffect for the narrative as a whole. It establishes that, as bad as the old situation was, the new one is substantially worse, and requires our full attention without distractions. If the original part of the plot's conflict was largely diplomatic, for example, it's quite understandable that everyone is willing to [[EnemyMine put it aside]] to deal with the newer threat.

* The Happened with ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' in 2006, when the headwriters Ken Penders and Karl Bollers left due to CreativeDifferences, and Ian Flynn stepped up as the new headwriter. Flynn would spend most of his first book year tying up most of Literature/WarOfTheSpiderQueen deals mostly the lingering plots left behind by Penders and Bollers (Tails being The Chosen One; the identity of "Anonymous"), writing some out contentious characters and plot elements (the Mystics Walkers, the Source of All, Tommy Turtle), and retooling many of the comic's elements to bring it more in line with a slave uprising, but it quickly turns to finding out what is happening the more in line with Lolth.
the game series' mythos (reducing the comic's hundreds of Chaos Emeralds into the seven found in the games; turning "The Zone of Silence" into "The Special Zone").
* Happened with ''ComicBook/SwampThing'' after Creator/AlanMoore took over as writer. Liz and Dennis, who'd been the major supporting characters in Pasko's run from the beginning, are abruptly PutOnABus after their escape from death, and so is the ongoing plotline about their relationship, or lack thereof. All this is so the series can focus primarily on the upcoming deconstruction and reconstruction of the Swamp Thing, and secondarily on the Cables' deteriorating marriage.

* In the midseason climax of ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'''s second season, Coulson manages to kill one of HYDRA's leaders, Daniel Whitehall. The next episode after that has him capitalizing on the resulting instability within HYDRA's leadership to wipe out an entire regional council, taking HYDRA off the board for at least the rest of the season and allowing the plot to deal with a rival S.H.I.E.L.D. faction instead.
