* ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Star Trek: DS9]]'' introduced the idea of the Dominion in a Ferengi episode (''[=DS9=]'' for 'joke episode'). The Dominion turn out to be the main villain after the next season until the end of the show. In the extras, the producers even say they did this intentionally.

** Damar was introduced in Season 4 as one of Dukat's officers who had barely more lines than an extra, which, according to the ''[=DS9=] Companion'', confused actor Casey Biggs until the producers reassured him that they had "big plans" for his character. It took an entire season and a half more before he even rose to the level of "supporting character," but he ended up being crucial to the overarching plotlines of the last two seasons.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/CatchTwentyTwo'' is one of the best examples of this. The book doesn't follow a linear progression of time. Instead, the narration jumps forward and backward constantly, which can be very confusing to the reader, especially since there is not a single date mentioned ever. The only way to tell when an event described happened is by how many missions the protagonist had flown at the time. Despite the convoluted narration format and the fact that the book features over 20 important characters, there isn't a single Main/PlotHole in the story. The writer famously kept [[https://biblioklept.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/heller.jpg a detailed graph]] to keep track of the timeline and each character's actions while writing the book, which took him 10 years.

* Another Creator/JossWhedon example: The season 4 of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', "Restless", contained much foreshadowing for the seasons to come and season 3 had Faith count down the days leading to [[spoiler: Buffy's death]] two years before it happened. Joss also arranged for every season finale of the show to provide some kind of closure just in case the show failed to get renewed.

Joss also arranged for every season finale of the show to provide some kind of closure just in case the show failed to get renewed. Willow's famous line "I think I'm kind of gay" from Season 3 is actually not an example - as Willow entering a lesbian relationship became a ThrowItIn during Season 4 and the other line was just a fun coincidence.




to:

* ''Series/OnceUponATime'':
** The second episode makes an offhand reference to Emma staying in Tallahasse for a while - a full season before it's revealed that Emma lived there with Henry's father.
** David Anders signed on after being told his character was really [[spoiler: Dr Frankenstein]], which wasn't revealed until early Season 2. Meghan Ory was likewise told that [[spoiler: Red would turn out to be the wolf]] long before it actually happened on the show.
** Maid Marian appears briefly in Robin Hood's debut episode in Season 2 only from far away. She doesn't appear again until a surprise twist [[spoiler: in the Season 3 finale]]. She's played by the same actress, meaning eagle-eyed viewers could have guessed the twist simply by re-watching the episode "Lacey".

* Creator/DerrenBrown is quite the chessmaster. ''The Experiments'' episode ''The Guilt Trip'' shows how far he'd go for this by even building a ''fake'' police station in the nearby village just in case the mark decides to hightail there alone to confess to a murder he was framed for, when the original plan was to have the mark confess on site.

* The opening credits of ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Not only are there [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome stunning]] ClockPunk castles rising up from a map, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome breathtaking music]] and the backstory told by metaphor, but the areas given detail change per episode in accordance with what areas are the main focus of the episode.

* As the main description on HBO's ''TheWire'', "all the pieces matter" accurately explains David Simon's plotting of the series well in advance. Multiple plot points are set up a season (or ''multiple'' seasons) in advance, and are foreshadowed so subtly that it requires a second viewing to catch all the instances. Barksdale soldier Bodie[[spoiler:'s death]] is telegraphed right from the third episode of the series. A key witness in Clay Davis' trial in the final season is a chauffer who was (initially thought of as) a bit character in a first-season episode. [[spoiler:Omar]]'s death is foreshadowed more than two seasons before it actually happens via the character of Kenard.

** In the first episode, there's a throwaway line that BOjack let Todd stay at his mansion because he thought he was a troubled gay teen. When [[spoiler:flashbackgs reveal that Herb left Horsin' Around because he was outed as gay and was fired]], it becomes obvious that Bojack let Todd of all people stay because of guilt.
