** Ghost disappears and is nowhere to be seen for much in Season 6 after Jon returns to the North. This is revealed to be because of a budgeting issue: they only had enough money for either Wun Wun the giant ''or'' Ghost, not both. They chose Wun Wun, so Ghost isn't there for a while. Presumably, now that Wun Wun is dead, Ghost can come back.

* In ''Series/{{Primeval}}'' there are a couple of these, especially after its return for series 4 and 5

to:

** The last we see of Lily was in the Season 4 finale, when she said she was sticking around Storybrooke to try and figure out who her father is. Two seasons later, this has yet to be followed up on.
** Season 5's Camelot storyline was quickly wrapped up with Arthur being arrested and locked up [[spoiler: then being killed by Hades and finding redemption in the Underworld]]. The rest of the Camelot cast isn't shown reacting to this, let alone do we get resolutions on Guinevere being brainwashed or Lancelot being thrown in Arthur's dungeons.

* ''Series/TheWestWing'' is somewhat infamous for this, the most notable example being Mandy, who disappeared with not a single reference afterwards after the first season. The website TelevisionWithoutPity uses "sent to Mandyville" to mean a character's disappearance without subsequent mention.

* ''Series/ThePath'': ''Where is Alison Kemp???'' She left the Meyerist Community because she believed her husband was murdered by them, but his SecretDiary proves that his death was accidental. Once she is re-welcomed into the community at the end of Season 1, she is never seen again. Fan reviews often bring this up and point out that her character could be extremely useful as Eddie Lane struggles with whether or not he's TheChosenOne.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Arya Stark is an in-universe example. While the audience knows where she is, aside from Tyrion's brief mention that they need to keep the Starks thinking she's in their custody, how the Lannisters managed to cover up her escape isn't particularly elaborated on. However they did it, it seems to be working, since despite the overactive rumour mill present in King's Landing, no-one seems to have noticed that Arya has not been seen for about a year and a half now! By Season 4, the secret seems to be formally "out" (there's no way they could keep it from the Tyrells), but nobody ''cares'' anymore since the world at large assumes that the Starks have been completely annihilated. Even Arya is said to be "presumed dead".

** Rickon Stark, in-universe, after Bran sends Rickon and Osha to the Umbers. Roose on learning of the survival of the youngest Stark children assumes that they must have died since none of the other Northern lords has seen or heard of them. His fate is confirmed both in-universe and out when Smalljon Umber hands him over to Ramsay Bolton.

* At the end of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E4Survival Season 26]] Ace leaves with the Doctor, to have many more adventures...but isn't there when he appears for Recap/DoctorWhoTVMTheTVMovie. When or how she left, or what she is doing now, is mostly unknown, though she's briefly mentioned in an episode of the spin-off ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures''. But that same scene also leaves unanswered the questions of what became of Dodo post-"[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E10TheWarMachines The War Machines]]" and Victoria post-"[[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E6FuryFromTheDeep Fury from the Deep]]"!
* Captain Jack's missing memories... remember those? The two years of his life that the Time Agency stole? They were mentioned once and never again -- on ''Doctor Who'', anyway. They are actually mentioned a few times on ''Series/{{Torchwood}}''; most notably, Adam held the memories hostage.

** Which, frankly, they shouldn't be -- in the scene where the Doctor's seen talking to the cat, it's ''after'' the scouting mission upstairs, and the cat's telling the Doctor what it saw. Meaning the cat wasn't upstairs when the faux second floor vanished.



* In the climax of Series 9's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E6TheWomanWhoLived "The Woman Who Lived"]], Sam Swift the good-natured highwayman is given the second Mire medkit to both save his life and defeat the MonsterOfTheWeek with life energy. Afterward, Ashildr/Lady Me and the Doctor discuss what might happen to him -- he may or may not have been immortalized the way she was with the first medkit, given the different circumstances of his revival. Later in the season [[spoiler: the Doctor and Ashildr cross paths again centuries and then ''millennia'' later]], but Sam Swift is never mentioned once, much less his ultimate fate.

** Jonas Quinn and his planet Langara are hardly ever brought up after he leaves. It's name checked as falling to the Ori in season 10, and eventually shows up in a late episode of ''Series/StargateUniverse'', but Jonas himself is conspicuously absent in an episode that features two prior main characters. Given what they did to his planet in that episode, it's probably a good thing.

* Many DomCom programs featuring teenaged characters will sometimes be placed in "dating" episodes ... where the character and the boy/girlfriend seem to hit it off, and are still dating at the end of the episode. But come the next episode, the new boyfriend or girlfriend is nowhere to be seen. This is especially true in shows without a continuing story arc.

* ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' has the AmnesiaEpisode episode "Amnesia in the Addams Family", in which Gomez acquires amnesia from accidentally hitting himself on the head with a club. He is cured by [[spoiler: being chased by Fester, who ends up accidentally being hit on the head, being knocked out and in the process, knocking out Gomez and curing him. At the end, Uncle Fester can be heard saying, "Who's Fester?". He identifies as Fester in the next episode, so it's unknown how he got better, or if he was joking.]]
