A story arc, episode, or work that ends almost as soon as it begins.
Do We Have This One?? Needs a Better Description. Up for Grabs since I'm afraid of spoilers. An Absurdly Short Episode is pretty much Exactly What It Says on the Tin: it ends in about a tenth of the time the audience is accustomed to. The difficulty of pulling this off can vary depending on the medium. It'd be hard to do in a book because the book's thickness gives a pretty good estimate of its length, and all those pages have to contain something; likewise, a television episode wouldn't work because those tend to fill strict half-hour blocks. In digital media, on the other hand, it's more common. A common trick of the Trolling Creator. Not to be confused with Short Runners. Ending Trope! Beware of spoilers!
