* ''Series/StargateSG1'' has what amounts to a ''{{prequel}}'' episode: "2010" is set entirely in a BadFuture, with the [[FutureLoser future versions]] of SG-1 working to send back a warning. The episode ends when they succeed, then a season later in "2001" the events referenced as history in 2010 start happening and they have to decypher the NoteToSelf to avert it.

** During the episode "[[{{Recap/FuturamaS3E2ParasitesLost}} Parasites Lost]]", among the many changes to himself via a beneficial worm infestation in his body, Fry gains the ability to play a holophonor (it is said that not many people in the whole universe can play it, and the few that ''could'' can't play it well), cementing his relationship with Leela. However, to find out whether or not she loves the real him, Fry induces a PygmalionSnapBack by driving the worms out of his body. He tries playing the holophonor again, and as expected, he lost both his talent and his seduction over Leela. The episode ends with Fry practicing on the holophonor, but this is not revisited until "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings", a SeriesFauxnale centering on Fry's ability to play the holophonor.

** In the episode "The Wish" the vengeance demon Anyanka creates an AlternateUniverse where vampires rule Sunnydale. By the end of the episode TheVerse is returned to normal and Anyanka is left powerless.

** A first season episode "Tooms" was a sequel to an episode earlier in the season, "Squeeze", one of the few they did like that. In the first ep they caught the MonsterOfTheWeek and in the later ep he was released from psychiatric ward. It's pretty damn hard to prosecute a supernatural crime...
** The episode "Irresistible" had the sequel "Orison". They featured a creepy serial killer obssed with dead women and Agent Scully. In "Orison", he escapes from prison and tries to find Scully.
** "Pusher" had the sequel "Kitsunegari". "Pusher" is considered a brilliant episode with a great antagonist for Mulder. "Kitsunegari" is disappointing as he inexplicably became helpful and his previously-not-mentioned twin sister has the same paranormal abilities (which he gained because of his untreated brain tumour).
