Added DiffLines:

* At the very beginning of ''VideoGame/Halo4'', you can find an interactive terminal which will read John-117's service record, which functions as a concise recap of the original ''Halo'' trilogy.

Added DiffLines:

* Because the twenty-seventh chapter of ''Manga/AsteroidInLove'' kind-of ends at a cliffhanger, as Misa proposes an audacious solution to tackle [[spoiler:Ao's impending departure due to her father's job transfer]], the first strip of the following chapter starts with a recap of Misa suggestion... This starts off normal, since the voiceover sounds like what Mira would say in this situation. At the [[{{yonkoma}} fourth frame of strip]], however, it turns out Moe is the one holding the voiceover microphone, and she starts talking PervertedSniffing her crush Misa...
-->'''Mira''': Suzu-chan! Can you stop with the one-sided narration already!?

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Soos:''' I'm Soos, and I'm on the edge of my seat!

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': Reruns of the double-length GrandFinale are usually divided into two parts, "Take Back the Falls" and "Somewhere in the Woods". The latter episode has the usual ColdOpen replaced by Soos summing up the events of the first half of the finale.


** The 1986 season of the show was one long story -- the fourteen-part "The Trial of a Time Lord". Realising that a fourteen-part story would be difficult to follow in an age where a home video recorder was still seen as a luxury, producer John Nathan-Turner wrote brief summaries of the story so far for the continuity announcer to read out at the start of the episode, accompanied by still images from previous episodes. This tactic was also used for several later [=80s=] stories.

Added DiffLines:

*** For the season 2 premiere episode "Brother," the exact verbiage is, "Last season on ''Star Trek: Discovery''," followed by a recap of season 1.


*** This gets an interesting twist in the last episode of season 1, "Will You Take My Hand?", with the Klingon L'Rell delivering the "Previously on ''Star Trek: Discovery''" line in Klingonese.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Anime/LoveLive'' franchise has a "Zenkai no Love Live!" segment play before the start of each episode in which the events of the previous episode are discussed by the main character (Honoka Kousaka or Chika Takami). In one instance, Honoka gave a musical recap of the previous season.


* In the late 70s, Marvel got hold of the Hanna-Barbera properties and would add, for example, a two-page teaser for a Dynomutt story to an issue of ComicBook/ScoobyDoo. The story would pick up in the ensuing issue of Dynomutt with a recap of the teaser.

Issues of ''Dynomutt'' would reciprocate with teasers for forthcoming ''Scooby'' stories.


* Some ''WesternAnimation/MightyMouse'' cartoons that featured Pearl Pureheart and Oil Can Harry spoofed this. The cartoon would start with an "in our last episode" recap when there was no previous episode with the incident shown to start with.

The ''WesternAnimation/HeckleAndJeckle'' cartoon "In Again, Out Again" used this as well.


** The first episode of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E1Castrovalva "Castrovalva"]] is the only classic series episode to have a Previously On segment to a previous serial, recapping the ending of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E7Logopolis "Logopolis"]] before seguing into the title sequence.

** Averted, quite dramatically, in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent "Heaven Sent"]], even though its events follow on from those of the previous episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E10FaceTheRaven "Face the Raven"]]. The episode starts with an ominous voiceover monologue from the Doctor as he is TrappedInAnotherWorld, whereupon he has a {{Flashback}} to THE key event of the previous episode, [[spoiler: the death of Clara Oswald]], and declares vengeance against his unseen enemy. The Series 9 finale that follows, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E12HellBent "Hell Bent"]], does open with a Previously On segment that recaps both "Face the Raven" and "Heaven Sent".

** In the old series, later parts of a serial would show the last minute or so of the previous episode, something New Who supremo Creator/StevenMoffat never understood: "It doesn't ''tell'' you anything!" The late 1970s U.S. syndication of the show initially added proper recaps for this reason; some of these bumpers have since appeared as bonus features on the DVD releases.
