Blank Stare
The Blank Stare is usually performed by one character in response to another's actions or verbal tirade, either in mind-numbing disbelief or disappointing awe, and especially when said character happens to go off the rails or otherwise show an aspect of themselves wildly different from what was expected.

It is usually performed primarily in a visual medium such as film, television or graphic novels and is done for both humourous and dramatic effect; the dramatic type tends to display the moment when you can no longer depend on that particular character anymore, while the comedic one usually reveals a WTF-type scenario similar to a Double Take or a Spit Take.
