Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': [[spoiler: Bismuth, one of the original Crystal Gems, behaved like this when Rose rejected her plan to [[KillEmAll shatter their Homeward oppressors]] with the Breaking Point on the grounds that it's wrong to take a life. This made Bismuth believe that Rose was a traitor to her own cause for sympathizing with the enemy, and that everything she said about being who you want to be was a cruel lie.]]

* In ''PrisonBreak'', Michael used his masculine wiles to get Dr. Sara to leave the infirmary door unlocked, a step vital to... fulfilling the series title. She doesn't ask the question, but he whisper-tells her over the phone that "It was real."
* ''Series/{{Nikita}}'': Similar to in ''PrisonBreak'', it is an inversion of the trope. In ''PrisonBreak'' Michael is the main character and a mole in the prison since the pilot, and we see it all from his point of view. In ''Series/{{Nikita}}''the main character of Alex is set up to be the mole from the very start, and we see it all from her point of view. There is a very dramatic "Was everything just a lie?!" moment coming from a more minor character, Thom, directed at the main character of Alex mid-way through the first season - it is a very intense scene that does involve a gun and is perfect fodder for a mid-season finale with a lot of drama.

* Non-romantic example in ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]]'', after being caught by [[spoiler: O'Brien]], Winston at one point asks if [[spoiler: there really is an underground movement against Big Brother, since the one O'Brien led him into was a trap laid by the thought police]]. Being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, the villain gives the reply: "[[MindScrew You will never know.]]"

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': Anything past the touching Season 1 finale can be viewed as this, and makes it apparent that Keroro will never have any form of happiness.

* On an episode of ''Series/HawaiiFiveO,'' a computer hacker thought his girlfriend was a fellow activist planning to use a stolen NSA file to get them to back off spying on civilians. However, it turns out she's a murderous Russian agent planning to sell the file on the black market, holding him prisoner to force him to decrypt it.

* Diala Rheinhart askes this question at the end of ''VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy'', [[spoiler: after Dan McNeely reveals that the Immorgamsics solution rewrote her past memories, swapping out McNeely in Diala's relationship for someone else named Mickey Lee; and the fact that Diala led the Armored Gamsees gang from the beginning.]] This example doesn't really hold the story together that well, though.
