* Fans of ''Series/TheAvengers'' who love the palpable WillTheyOrWontThey tension between Steed and Peel probably are all too thrilled when they pull out their DVD of the episode "Who's Who?" for the first time and see an image of their favorite couple engaged in not just one of Emma's playful pecks, but a full on sexy makeout session. Trick is "Who's Who" is a '''body swap episode'''. Emma and Steed have their minds in the bodies of the villains and are tied up in a warehouse somewhere, while the villains are the ones in Steed's flat, in Steed and Peel's bodies, getting comfy and kissing while they live it up and continue an evil plot. Of course, since it's just the [[ActingForTwo same sets of actors switching roles]], that's STILL Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg full on frenching each other, so do with that what you will. And we'll remind you this is while they are playing villains, and EvilIsSexy.

** The tease for the Christmas episode told us that Booth and Brennan may kiss (with the camera slow motioning them closer together) which would have ruined the long-waited for moment, but it did NOT tell us the ''conditions'' of the kiss in which [[spoiler:Booth and Brennan were coerced into doing it under the mistletoe by someone else. Though after that nudge they did stay lip-locked for a fair bit longer than the mistletoe dictated]].

** The Season 4 episode "I Do" teased fans with hookups between popular broken up couples Finn and Rachel and Kurt and Blaine (the latter of which actually got a couple kisses in the episode), as well as between Santana (an out lesbian) and her best friend Quinn (who is straight, but has a very large gay following).
* The season two finale of ''Series/TheGoodWife'' featured a long-awaited hookup between [[spoiler: Alicia and Will]]. Would've been a delightful surprise- except that the trailer for the episode had already spoiled the ElevatorGoingDown.

Of course, anyone who had read the relevant chapter of the manga (chapter 10 for those interested) would know the outcome ahead of time.

* ''Series/{{House}}'' had one of these trailers during Season 5. [[http://www.hulu.com/watch/71282/house-for-huddy-fans#s-p1-st-i1 Clip here.]] [[spoiler:It was, indeed, [[AllJustADream All Just A Hallucination]].]]
* ''Series/{{iCarly}}'': Trailers teased a potential kiss between Sam and Freddie for the episode ''iTwins''. ''iSaved Your Life'' didn't bother teasing a ''potential'' Carly/Freddie, and showing them actually kissing. Also done that way with Griffin and Carly for ''iDate A Bad Boy''. Melanie and Freddie in ''iTwins'' showed their kiss, but teased the idea that Melanie was fake and didn't exist and that Freddie was actually kissing Sam.
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'': A strange sort of anti-ShipTease, as it showed Elliot kissing [[DieForOurShip someone else besides Olivia]], but the relationship never went anywhere.
* Previews for ''Series/{{Lost}}'''s fourth season finale showed Sawyer and Kate about to kiss, and the writers promised a major kiss. However, [[spoiler:the Sawyer/Kate kiss was only one of two; the major kiss turned out to be Desmond and Penny.]]
* ''Series/MakeItOrBreakIt'' had this with a couple of episodes in its Second Season, notably the episode "Rock Bottom" where [[spoiler:Payson, at the peak of her crush, kisses her coach Sasha.]]
* The GrandFinale of ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'': As if no one could see the LastMinuteHookUp coming from two seasons away.
* {{Nickelodeon}} advertised "Kisses and Misses Night" one Valentine's Day, a stream of new episodes of various shows in which ''all'' of them fit this trope.
* Promo materials (including the trailer and a still photo) for a Season 3 ''Series/OnceUponATime'' episode play this trope for all it's worth, highlighting a kiss between [[spoiler: Hook and Emma]], much to the delight of the pairing's fanbase.
* In every ''Series/{{Skins}}'' promo for Naomi's episode in series three, the scene of Cook and Naomi making out was played up as though they were going to have sex. Needless to say, they didn't--but Naomi and ''Emily'' did end up having sex.
** And then there's the aftermath of Emily's S4 episode, which left Naomi and Emily's relationship in [[YourCheatingHeart serious trouble]]; the preview for the next episode, Cook's, showed Naomi and Cook making out again. [[spoiler:It was an entirely platonic between friends thing and was immediately followed by a ShipSinking.]]
* The teaser for the ''Series/StargateSG1'' episode "Grace". The kiss turned out to be an IndulgentFantasySegue ''within'' a hallucination.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'':
** The promos for "Triangle" played up a Mulder/Scully kiss, though in reality, the kiss was between Mulder and a hallucinated past version of Scully, not Scully herself. When Mulder and Scully ''do'' kiss for the first time, in "Millenium", the kiss is never mentioned in the promos at all.
** Trailers for [[Film/TheXFilesFightTheFuture the first film]] tease the audience with a shot implying that Mulder and Scully kiss, though in the movie, they get interrupted just before lips touch.



* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', the exact same thing can be said for Danny and Sam.
* The so-called "final episode" (not) of ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'', where June kisses Henry. To the shipper's dismay, it never aired on Nicktoons.
* The SchoolPlay episode of ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold!'': At least they were honest about the circumstances.



* And the PR department strikes with no mercy for ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' by doing this with [[spoiler:Korra and Mako.]]

It would have been more poignant had Creator/DisneyChannel not been advertising the seconds leading up to the kiss for several weeks at that point.

* Trailers for the 2009 reboot of ''Star Trek'' seemed to imply a steamy and passionate sex scene between Kirk and Uhura, however, all it ended up being was an Academy hook up between Kirk and an Orion girl, which [[CasanovaWannabe Kirk didn't even get to consummate.]]

** A trailer for the hundredth episode in Australia showed [[spoiler:both kisses from the episode, one of which was a flashback, the other in which Brennan cuts it off - but of course they didn't show this. In the US, they just showed them leaning in.]]

** Surprisingly, they did ''not'' do it for the famous [[spoiler: Kurt/Blaine]] kiss in "Original Song," which undoubtedly contributed to the maniacal excitement that followed.

* Twisted horribly, like most tropes, in ''Series/{{Hannibal}}''. The trailer for "Futamono" showed [[spoiler:Alana]] in bed with [[spoiler:Hannibal Lecter, who is [[VillainWithGoodPublicity still believed innocent by almost all of the characters]]]], triggering a fandom-wide case of BileFascination.
