Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The three members of the Night's Watch (Will, Gared, and Ser Waymar Royce) who appear in the pilot. Will was a ranger who was executed for desertion by Ned Stark. Gared and Ser Waymar were killed by a White Walker while on a ranging north of the Wall.
** Jory squeaked in, in just under the 5 episode limit. While significantly more badass than most examples, he still counts. His death is just a way of showing things are getting serious, without a major character being killed off.

Added DiffLines:

* Kaylee of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' is set up to be this, getting shot by Dobson in the very first episode, but subverted in that she actually survives, with Mal telling Simon that she was dead serving as a psychotic (and hilarious) joke on him.

** Had Lisa Faulkner, who was sacrificed in the ''second'' episode, but shocking nonetheless.

** Had Lisa Faulkner, who was sacrificed in the ''second'' episode, but shocking nonetheless. Arguably, ''more'' so. Given that she'd survived the first episode and seemed like a major character, audiences could be forgiven for thinking she'd be in the series long-term. Alas, no.

* ''The Phone'': In the pilot, the first team was introduced and competed against the second team per a normal RealityTV show until about maybe half an hour (tops) into it when they don't complete the given task and are subsequently eliminated and DROWNED.

* ''Series/PrimevalNewWorld'' introduces Evan's best friend and Dylan's partner, Drake, who has all the makings of being the TeamDad for the show. He's killed halfway into the pilot to establish that the show is going to be ''much'' darker compared to ''Series/{{Primeval}}''.

** JossWhedon actually planned to bring Jesse back as a ghost or form of the First Evil talking to Xander in the final season, but [[RealLifeWritesThePlot real-life problems prevented it]]. (This happened a few other times: He also had to have the late Cassie speak for the also-late Tara in one episode because Tara's actress thought having the First appear as Tara was too cruel, and then had to completely scrap an episode idea to bring Tara BackFromTheDead because the actress wasn't available... among others.)
