* ''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]] has received this fate thus far.

*** The ship from ''Enemies'' is justified twice. First, while the original builder of the ship in question is unknown, at the time they encounter it it is controlled by a known race, the Replicators. Second, the encounter occurs in a distant unknown galaxy (though the presence of replicators would possibly imply it was Ida, the home galaxy of the Asgard), and unless that race had intergalactic hyperdrives (and managed to figure out where the "invaders" had come from and had the desire to "retaliate") there would be no reason to ever encounter them again.



*** While the Furlings themselves never appear, several technologies the team encounters are attributed to them. Most notably the Touchstone from the episode of the same name, and the portal arch in ''Paradise Lost''.



*** The Conspiracy aliens became a case of an AbortedArc. The episodes that were originally planned to bring them back instead replaced them with the Borg.



** Fairhaven, a holodeck program that Voyager ran without stop for one episode. After the characters in the program became aware of their true nature and of Voyager's crew, it was promised that the program would be kept running and that they would still all be friends. It is never seen or heard from again.

** In ''Equinox'', a two-part episode, Voyager encounters the Starfleet ship Equinox, the crew of which ends up screwing Voyager over, using a sentient alien race as a power source to get home faster, and in general acts disgracefully. At the end, Janeway strips the surviving crew members of all rank, tells them their privileges will be restricted, they'll be closely supervised, and they'll have to earn trust from then on. They apparently disappear forever, and no mention is made of them or whether they eventually redeem themselves or get pushed out an airlock or what.

* 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.

It's never entirely clear if they were even responsible (although they're definitely present); the episode's human antagonist was launching a series of false flag attacks.

* ''Series/HappyDays'': During one episode, Howard Cunningham sneezes several times and states that he "feels a cold coming on". It is never revealed if he actually did catch a cold.

* In ''Series/{{MASH}}'', both Spearchucker and Ugly John disappear without any notice or mention again. Likewise, Lt. Dish, who was in the theatrical feature and in the TV series' pilot, plus one other episode a while later. After that, she was gone. Justified, in that it's the Army where people come and go a lot as they get rotated between various posts. The unstated reason for the removal of Spearchucker was that the show's creators learned that there were no black surgeons (working as such in MASH units) in the Korean War.

** In Season 2, we at least know the Greatjon is waging war in the Riverlands, but there's been no word on his fate following the Red Wedding. By Season 6, it appears he died somehow. Clive Mantle apparently had serious difficulties meeting the show's schedule, until they finally just killed him offscreen.

* 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/TheLeftovers'', like its central motif of [[TheEndIsNigh rapture]], features several examples of plot points suddenly vanishing. Story-lines were probably altered for functional purposes since it is a book adaptation that also happened to have an uncertain future after two seasons, just narrowly avoiding [[DevelopmentHell television limbo]]
**Tom Garvey, adopted son of [[ProdigalHero Kevin Garvey]], was initially tasked with protecting one of several [[MysticalPregnancy pregnant concubines]] who carried the children of a doomsday prophet. After some [[SecretRelationship unsanctioned lovemaking]] and spiritual disillusionment, Tommy and the concubine, Christine, decide to leave their faith behind, and leave Christine's baby with Kevin. The baby eventually ends up with Christine, a development that pays off thematically for the effect it has on the relationship between her once adopted parents in Kevin and Nora. However, the plot points pertaining to the doomsday prophet, his cult-like network, and his relationship with Tommy abruptly end when he is killed off and Tommy becomes [[TheAllAmericanBoy good ol' county police]].
**Meg Abbott's character begins an arc that takes her from being a troubled, naive women, to cult follower, to cult reformer. But before her character does anything of thematic import, at the very start of the third season, the writers send a [[DiabolusExMachina predator missile]] to kill her off. Perhaps this is because the writers ran out of time to finish her plot, or because Meg's actress, Liv Tyler, couldn't negotiate a full-time contract for the third season. Meg does [[BackfortheFinale reappear]] as another version of herself during Kevin's last trip to the [[MirrorUniverse alternate universe]] in the series's penultimate episode, however.
