* Zeppelin (1971). A FakeDefector is boarding a boat so he can be smuggled to Germany when a sniper gives him OnlyAFleshWound so his cover will be more convincing. Apparently [[WithFriendsLikeThese he hadn't been informed of this aspect of the plan]].

** The show's final episode starts with [[InMediaRes Ford being interrogated]] about a failed heist, in which the interrogator (and the audience) is led to believe until near the end that the rest of the cast, other than Ford, was killed. (The heist was actually successful: the team needed to pretend to be dead so they could sneak in as part of the investigation of the first, fake, heist.) One part of selling the deaths: a security camera caught Eliot being shot several times. The scene really happened, but the gunshots were of course acted.
