[[SturgeonsLaw It's not always done well, of course.]] Particularly poorly-done wham episodes almost invariably result in a ShockingSwerve.

Note that it's not a Wham Episode if it turns out that the shocking events were AllJustADream, or if the changes are reversed with a SnapBack or ResetButton, or if the series has NegativeContinuity. To count as a Wham Episode, the events must actually happen and become {{canon}}. When a series is already successful, and the writers decide to do this, it's very risky, for both the series, and their fans.

The point in a series where the story takes a sudden dramatic turn. Things will never be quite the same again.

Note that it's not a Wham Episode if it turns out that the shocking events were AllJustADream, or if the changes are reversed with a SnapBack or ResetButton, or if the series has NegativeContinuity. Also, just because an event is dramatic or has a reveal, that doesn't make it a Wham Episode. To count as a Wham Episode, the events must actually happen, they must shake up the status quo and/or drop a major bombshell, and become {{canon}}.

Compare GenreTurningPoint and NothingIsTheSameAnymore. Contrast with BreatherEpisode. Related to DramaBomb. Complete opposite of StatusQuoIsGod. If the WHAM aspect is concentrated in a single line, it's a WhamLine. See also AscendedFridgeHorror, wherein some aspects of the series leave some viewers with reason to expect a tone shift, before they see it applied by the writers. Often the first warning that the viewer is dealing with a {{Deconstruction}}. Frequently caused by or contains a GutPunch.
