Since this is technically not the end of a two-part episode arc, someone will provide a [[AsYouKnow monologue]] of the first episode's [[ReCap important bits]] for the [[ViewersAreGoldfish especially absent-minded audience]]. It's also useful for the character, since they might not have even had time to digest the situation before the last episode ended. This can be so effective the viewer can ''skip the first episode entirely'' if they want to see how a 'real' episode is handled.

* Through dub editing, ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' originally opened with Bloom waking up in the morning, before eventually finding Stella (who's fighting an ogre and various creatures). In the 4Kids "dub", [[{{Macekre}} Bloom finds Stella and her fight first, and then the 2nd segment of the show opens with Bloom waking up in the morning, and finding that she didn't just dream all that up]].[[note]]It must be noted that this series, which was produced in Italian originally, [[TheyJustDidntCare already had an existing English version]].[[/note]]

* The first episode of ''[[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork Rockman.EXE Axess]]'', the third season, has Netto performing Cross Fusion, defeating the [[TheDragon Dragon to the Dragon]] Beastman, and then passing out from the exertion. The episode ends with Rockman frantically calling for him after he's out on the ground. He wakes up in the second episode, spaces out for a bit, then goes into a panic when he remembers the events of the previous day and can't find his partner. (In ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'', Lan wakes up immediately and banters with Mega Man at the end of the first episode.)
* A particularly strange example of this trope occurred with the American broadcast of ''Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne'', in which Fox network executives made good on that whole "the viewer can skip the first episode entirely" thing by actually skipping most of the first episode, which details how Hitomi got from Earth to Gaia. Instead, the show starts off with her "new life" already underway. The subsequent episodes were chopped up in a similar way, [[ExecutiveMeddling combining halves of episodes together and moving things around]], until they just dropped it altogether.

** As well, ''Back to the Future Part II'' ends on a cliffhanger, with Marty announcing to Doc that he came back from the future, just after Doc sends him back ''to'' the future in a sequence first shown in the first movie. This causes Doc to faint, and after waking up at home in the beginning of ''Part III'', he dismisses the encounter as a hallucination... until he bumps into Marty, who's right there with him in the room and who continues to claim that he came back from the future.

** And eventually that sequence in the final episode went on to become its own AU series, providing us with a slightly happier version of Eva.
** Due to the nature of the ending, its not even necessarily imagination, it might for all intents and purposes be real, considering the state of things at that point.

Two average humans see a super-hero and super-villain fighting right in front of them, but they go about their business as if nothing has happend the second they vanish. Their conversation, however, turns to discussing the comic depicting the two supers and remebering it to include a fight much like the one they just witnessed. The second episode has the protagonist waking up after dreaming of the real fight, than quickly getting a visit from the super-villain.
