* Even the otherwise awesome-beyond-all-belief ChuckNorris couldn't save ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger'' from falling into this trope: one episode where Cordell Walker was supposed to rescue a girl who was trapped in a Christian cult camp ended up having the last several minutes of it focused on Walker rescuing Alex Cahill from the cult camp, leaving the intended rescue target's status in question.

** Many viewers complained about the final episode never telling us what happened to Walt. There actually ''is'' a short film on the Lost DVD that covers this up. [[spoiler: He went back to the island with Ben and Hurley.]]

** There's also the matter of Season 1 supporting villain [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Ian Quinn]], last seen [[VillainExitStageLeft fleeing]] in the season finale as his benefactor [[BigBad the Clairvoyant]] faces his downfall. And furthermore, he escapes with the gravitonium generator that was shown in its first appearance to be [[spoiler: acting as a [[SealedEvilInACan can]] for Franklin Hall/Graviton]]; three seasons later, this has not been followed up on.

* ''Series/TheLeagueOfGentlemen'': In the first episode of series 3, one of the plotlines featuring a woman who had to play party games with a Doctor in order to get her medication had the final scene of her plotline cut from the final draft, so we never saw if she actually won the game or not and got her medication. In the last episode of series 3, there's a variation on this where Dean Tavalouris has his camera stole of him which is then used to make a seedy striptease video. The next time we see him, Dean has his camera back and the whole camera being stolen story has been dropped and is never resolved.

''PowerRangersTurbo''
* After leaving for Eltar with Zordon in ''PowerRangers'', Alpha 5 is never so much as alluded to ever again, even when Eltar is taken over and Zordon captured. {{Fanon}} holds he died during the attack, and granted the second gen Turbo Rangers never met him, but ''still'' ... you'd figure a character like him would get ''some'' sort of closure.

* At the end of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E6TheVampiresOfVenice "Vampires of Venice"]], all the female "vampires" are gone, but there are still 10,000 male ones left on Earth, and neither the Doctor nor anyone else seems to care.

** ''TNG'' also has Silva [=LaForge=], Geordi's mom. Her ship mysteriously vanished, and Geordi nearly loses his mind to the mysterious gadget of the week in his attempts to find out what happened to her. After the incident, he accepts her loss, in a manner that makes the episode seem like a KnowWhenToFoldEm plot. The actual fate of the ''Hera'' is not touched upon in any way - no clues, no evidence for them being dead ''or'' alive, and it's never addressed again.[[note]]Until the StarTrekNovelVerse.[[/note]]

** Sometimes the writers would introduce a random relative into an episode (usually for the sake of a HeyItsThatGuy moment) but then never mention him/her again afterwards. Two examples are Monica (and Ross's) Aunt Iris from "The One With All The Poker" and their cousin Cassie from "The One With Ross And Monica's Cousin."

* In the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode "Homefront" we learn that changeling infiltrators have managed to reach Earth when they bomb a diplomatic conference in Antwerp. The plot quickly shifts focus to Captain Sisko trying to prevent a Starfleet coup against the Federation president and the changeling infiltrators pretty much disappear from the story. It's never revealed whether they were eventually caught or not.

* One of the problems ''Series/BirdsOfPrey'' had is it didn't explain what happened to a lot of the traditional Franchise/{{Batman}} trappings like Commissioner Gordon or Wayne Enterprises after Batman left Gotham City and retired. The only answers are the Joker being held in a prison far from Gotham and [[spoiler: Bruce calling Alfred in the finale.]]
