If it's very well written, it can work. If not, it turns into something of a DarthWiki/WallBanger for GenreSavvy fans. It's a cheap attempt to build tension for a season finale, two-part episode or a sequel. Bonus points if the character whose death they're teasing is the '''titular character''' of the show or film franchise.

Almost subverted in the [[TheMovie cinematic]] [[GrandFinale series finale]], where Miss Brooks resolves to leave in a moment of despair. Fortunately, WithThisRing intervenes and Miss Brooks gets her HappilyEverAfter.

* The third season of ''CSIMiami'' had a season-long tagline; something along the lines of "Horatio Caine is a dead man" and every commercial for the show that season ended with a graphic of his iconic sunglasses with what looked like a bullet hole in the left lens. When the season finale came there was an attempt on his life, but it didn't even come close. Horatio Caine wasn't going out that way... '''''[[MemeticMutation YEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH]]'''''

Not applicable on (most) shows or films where AnyoneCanDie, the exception being one of the show's central characters, like Jack Bauer on ''24''. Not applicable if the show is broadcasting its series finale. Not applicable in a medium where DeathIsCheap (like comic books). Not applicable if the work is a biography of a person who famously died in some significant manner (''MalcomX, ThePrideOfTheYankees''). Not applicable when it's done for CharacterDevelopment or to collect a PlotCoupon.
