Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'' has quite a few of these, especially early in the series, since their job is pretty much done as soon as the dangerous situation is resolved, meaning that longer-term questions, if they exist, can go unanswered. Later episodes had a tendency to avert this by providing large amounts of context and backstory in the beginning and/or writing the final scenes in such a way that loose ends were tied up.
** The most blatant example is in "The Fortress", in which a young nanny is critically injured and it's never even revealed if she survives.
** In "Never Kissed a Girl", we never find out whether the subject in the episode was exonerated of murdering his friend.
** Both averted and played straight with the case of Goran Tomasic, the subject from the series premiere. Tomasic's son continues to cause problems throughout Season One, becoming a subject (and, consequentially, a casualty) himself in "Between Heartbeats", but the context for the original incident remains completely unexplained.

* ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' plays a rather horrific version of this trope. In the show, the Horoscopes don't really die, and the people that turn into them can still fight. How do they get taken out for good? Well, one of them sends the failures to the Dark Nebula, a dark place that horrifies some of the most loyal of Horoscopes. There were only three people trapped in there in the series' run: [[spoiler: Sonada, due to her failing Gamou for the last time, Kijima, due to Libra tricking Virgo into thinking he was a nosy police officer, and Sugiura, who went against the Horoscopes]]. It's eventually revealed that [[spoiler: Virgo, the Horoscope that summons the Dark Nebula, was just putting them into suspended animation on the M-BUS satellite. When he is killed by the BigBad, the three that were sent to the 'Dark Nebula' were never seen again after that revelation, nor was there any telling that the heroes ever got around to saving them, even in the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue movie which has a ''five-year timeskip''. Rather unnerving for a fun show about friendship]].

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'':
** ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto: About two thirds into the series, the Red Shoes system is introduced, which is built into the Kabuto and Gatack Rider suits. This system will cause said Rider suits to take over the mind of the user, making them attempt to kill every [[MonsterOfTheWeek Worm]] in sight. Even the peaceful ones. After the episode which introduced it, the Red Shoes system is never referenced again, despite it being a potential danger to one of the friendly Worm side characters.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' has a strange habit of critically wounding recurring characters and then dropping them off in a hospital somewhere with no word on whether they eventually recovered or not. [[spoiler: Tomas Calderon and General Talbot]] have received this fate thus far.

* In Season 9 of ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', Mia Dearden (the second Speedy in the comics) appears in two episodes, over the course of which Green Arrow accepts her as his sidekick. She is then never mentioned ever again.
** There's also Lucas Luthor, Lionel's illegitimate son. He appeared in exactly one episode (though he had been mentioned before) at the end of which he was hidden away somewhere by Lex. After that he was never mentioned again, the characters even referred to Lex as Lionel's only son in later seasons.

* Another resolution deleted example: In ''Series/TheOffice'' (American) episode "Drug Test," you don't find out where the joint came from. The deleted scene shows that it was from two of Vance's deliverymen who commonly deliver things to the office.
** Another from TheOffice is the final fate of legendary JerkAss Todd Packer. Jim and Dwight set up Packer so that he would go to Tallahassee and get in a great deal of trouble with the Sabre CEO, and eventually Michael decides Packer is irredeemable and allows him to leave (and walk into the trap), though what became of him is never mentioned.
*** In season 8, his fate was revealed.

** Played straight with Morales himself. Several episodes after this, he and his family leave the group to head for Birmingham. They are never seen or mentioned again.

** On Live Another Day, Simone Al-Harazi works alongside her mother Margot as the villains of the first half of the season.

Whether she survived or died is unknown, she's not mentioned again afterwards.
