** Series 1 - The new companion, Adam, is rather quickly ''fired'' for stealing future-tech, and Satellite 5 (the stage for the finale) is introduced. Weirdly, the episode's title doesn't even get [[TitleDrop dropped]] ''until'' the finale.

The ChristmasEpisode, "The Snowmen", that aired in between the two parts has [[spoiler:Creator/JennaLouiseColeman showing up again as Clara, who then dies, just like Oswin. Then we find out that Clara's full name is Clara Oswin Oswald, and there is another Clara in present day.]]

* ''Series/HeadOfTheClass'': the original premise had Charlie as a substitute teacher to a "gifted" class. Episode 6 featured the return of the original teacher and a permanent change in Charlie's status -- specifically, since this wasn't the last episode, he becomes permanent. The show does act as though he will leave until the literal last minute of the episode.

** The fourth season is also relatively calm for about ten episodes at the start. Then, in "Steven's Dream," [[spoiler: Blue Diamond visits Earth to mourn Pink Diamond, and while there, she meets Greg, becomes fascinated with him, and decides to take him back with her to Pink Diamond's Human Zoo, forcing the Crystal Gems to go into space to rescue him. Over the course of the next few episodes, they succeed, but Blue gains a newfound fascination with the human race, which along with her desire to preserve Pink's legacy, leads her and Yellow Diamond to come up with new plans- though their next course of action hasn't been revealed yet, it's implied that they're intending to kidnap more humans to "preserve" Pink Diamond's legacy from being destroyed by the Cluster, as they're unaware that the Cluster stopped itself from emerging.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has "Not What He Seems" (Season 2, Episode 11), which reveals that [[spoiler: the portal in basement was a gateway to other dimensions and that Grunkle Stan has been working for 30 years in order to bring his twin brother back from the other side. Said twin brother being the author of the journals, whom the other characters have been trying to figure out the identity of since the beginning of the series. The following episode then reveals that Grunkle Stan actually faked his own death and has been [[DeadPersonImpersonation using his brother's]] [[MySiblingWillLiveThroughMe identity ever since]]]]. Notably, this twist was planned as a season ''finale'' until it was decided to accelerate the show's MythArc so it could end at two seasons instead of three.

** The show began with [[KidHero Steven]] and the Crystal Gems, who seemed to be the LastOfTheirKind, fighting monsters or interacting with normal people in magical ways. In the middle of the first season, a two-parter suddenly introduced a new and powerful Gem named [[MakingASplash Lapis Lazuli]] as an AntiVillain, who implies that the Crystal Gems shouldn't be trusted before flying off into space, revealing their species' alien nature and hinting that there might be more Gems out there. Also, those monsters that they fight? [[WasOnceAMan They used to be Gems, too]].
