* In the season 2 and 3 of ''Series/The100'' we have a rather minor plot of Jaha looking for the city of light while the main protagonists focus on surviving on the eath and their issues and alliances with the grounders. But when Jaha finds d city of light at the end of season 2 and returns to the camp at the debut of season 1, he starts to recruit for his group. At the end of season 3 [[Spoiler: they are the main threat with ALLIE the Ia that brainwashes them as the big bag of the season and all the protagonists must work together to defeat her]].

** In the book season two was based on, the Maryann character shows up in one scene near the beginning, then Sookie (being the first-person narrator) takes the story with her to Dallas. When she comes back to deal with the maenad in the climax of the novel, readers might be forgiven for forgetting she was ever there in the first place. It's especially aggravating because in the book version the problem is resolved when [[spoiler:the maenad kills the people she came to kill, then moves on to menace some other town.]]



* In ''Series/BabylonFive'', mysterious alien vessels are introduced about halfway through the first season. Their first appearance is in the appropriately named episode ''Signs and Portents''. We don't even learn the name of the race that uses these strange-looking ships until after a few appearances. As the series progresses, we slowly learn more about them, until by the time Season 3 rolls around, the Shadows have become the series main antagonist, and the show's MythArc is in full swing.
** Had it not been cancelled halfway through the first season, ''{{Series/Crusade}}'' would have gone the same way. The Drakh plague that dominated the storyline of the 13 filmed episodes would have been resolved by Season 2. The real MythArc, dealing with a conspiracy within [=EarthForce=], would come to the forefront. As it was, we only got the barest hints, which weren't even obvious as hints until WordOfGod provided some perspective.

* Played for laughs in "Jack Sparrow" by Music/TheLonelyIsland. The song was supposed to be a generic club rap with a hook by Michael Bolton. Turns out said hook was Michael Bolton singing a chorus about [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow]] which more or less takes over the song. He switches it to ''Film/ForrestGump, Film/ErinBrockovich'' and finally ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'' by the song's end.

* ValiantComics' 1990s revival of ''ComicBook/MagnusRobotFighter'' initially picked up right where UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}} series left off, with a decadent upper class humanity becoming increasingly dependent on robots and vulnerable to antisocial ones; the robots chafing under humanity's rule and sometimes becoming extremely dangerous; the vast slums on the Earth's surface, beneath the gleaming towered cities, where life is terrible; and Magnus trying to find a way to set things right for all three factions. It had always been a cool premise with a lot of potential, and at first the Valiant title explored it in much more depth then the original Creator/GoldKeyComics version had. ''Then the Malev Robots from space invaded,'' conquering Earth and derailing all of the above-mentioned premise. All that mattered after that was everybody fighting space robots.

* The second season of ''TrueBlood'' is mostly about Sookie helping Eric and the Dallas vampires find the missing sheriff, Godric. Meanwhile, there's a subplot going that has Tara moving in with a social worker who is secretly a maenad. For most of the season, the maenad, Maryann, isn't really much of a threat; she mostly just prances around holding sex parties and trolling Sam, committing a couple of murders while she's at it. However, after the Dallas plot is wrapped up, Maryann becomes the BigBad and the main cast must team up to [[spoiler:save the townspeople's souls from her control and stop her from killing Sam in a ritual sacrifice.]]

* Kirsten Cohen of ''Series/TheOC'' drank on-screen enough for TelevisionWithoutPity to have started a "Kirsten Cohen drink watch '03." But at the end of season 2, she immediately switched from frequent wine drinker to inst-alkie complete with {{Wangst}}.

** Dukat. His final arc started as the E-plot, something to give comic relief while everyone else was fighting the Dominion. Then things escalated. And again. And ag- say, did he just figure out how to free the pah-wraiths? Which he considered gods in a previous episode? Oh shit...
