* A recently new ad has a story of love between 2 students in a certain school. They go on and on until they start dating. Then in the same scene, an armed student enters abrubtly and starts shooting everyone. Then the ad shows how he was always in the background, exhibiting symptoms of violent tendencies (like shooting with the fingers to the teacher and other students). The ad ends with the message to always be alert and try to prevent school shootings (also the school in question is Sandy Hook)

* {{Grounded For Life}}: Almost every episode is a series of flash backs flashing further back each time. One character may have a flashback to a hit and run driver taking out their car door, followed by another character revealing they were the hit and run driver late in the episode.

** What makes it so very effective though, is that it doesn't necessarily seem that odd the first time round. It's not so very strange that the Doctor should realise he's been too distracted, and come back to comfort his dying friend before he has to leave. As a result, the scene stands on its own merits without seeming to stand out or demand explanation, and that makes the reveal so much more surprising when it comes.
** Also proving that most ViewersAreGeniuses, since many noticed that during that scene, the Doctor was not wearing his jacket and had rolled up sleeves... something incongruous with his outfit for the rest of the episode, as well as why the Doctor was so [[OutOfCharacterIsSeriousBusiness out of character]].
** A big one occurs at the end of "The Eleventh Hour" where we see young Amy waiting and the Tardis is heard in the background. The scene cuts to adult Amy waking up suggesting a dream. Two and a half series later viewers finally got an explanation in Amy and Rory's final episode.

* Series 4 of ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' (again, Steven Moffat) features a very interesting one. "The Six Thatchers" ends with Sherlock watching a video message left by Mary[[spoiler:, who had [[TakingTheBullet saved his life at the cost of her own]] at the episode's climax]], telling him to "save John Watson", followed by a short [[TheStinger stinger]] in which she tells him to "go to hell", seemingly out of spite. However, at the climax of "The Lying Detective", John watches the same video and it's revealed we didn't see the whole thing the first time: "go to hell" was actually Mary's instruction on ''how'' to save John, as she reasoned that the only way to save him was for him to have to save Sherlock, thus giving him renewed purpose.

* In ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'', you see a WhamShot (or Wham Video, rather) of [[spoiler:Lynne shooting the man in red in the junkyard at 7 PM]] in Cabanela's boss's office. Later on, that same scene is played again, only this time the player is told that [[spoiler:Lynne was being mentally manipulated by Yomiel, meaning she didn't mean to shoot]]. And ''then'', the scene gets its final, full meaning at the very end of the game when it's revealed that [[spoiler:Sissel was the cat in Yomiel's bag, and that he was accidentally shot dead by Lynne (so she ''did'' kill Sissel after all); then she shot Yomiel's corpse as he wanted]].

* Kieslowski's ''[[Film/TheDecalogue Short Film About Love]]'' combines this with BookEnds. The opening scene shows someone's bandaged wrist, a hand reaching out to touch it, and third hand stopping it, but you have to watch the entire movie to find out why.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts2'': There is a scene where [[spoiler: Xemnas]] and [[spoiler: Roxas]] are speaking to each other on a dark beach, both wearing Organization [=XIII=] coats, that is shown a few times over the course of the Kingdom Hearts series.

* Creator/CateBlanchett lampshades this while talking in the behind-the-scenes features for ''{{Film/Carol}}''. The first scene is actually [[InMediasRes near the end of the timeline of the movie]]. As seen from a minor character's view, it's a relatively benign, if chilly, dinner between two gal pals. [[spoiler: When you see it again, knowing the depth and intensity of Carol and Therese's affair, the awkwardness becomes tension charging the air like a lightning rod.]]
