Probably Needs a Better Title
, Needs More Examples
The episode ends with The Hero
in deep trouble, most likely in a pitfall or trap. The narrator even says that he dies! Cue Cliff Hanger
, as even the title for the next episode says "Hero Dies!" Obviously, that doesn't happen, as it gets resolved in the next episode.
You can replace The Hero
with Five-Man Band
or similar, or even Love Interest
. This can also occur before a commercial break.
