A sort of middle-ground between being Put on a Bus and Dropped a Bridge on Him. A few regular characters leave the show, usually for Creative Differences, then later come back for the sole purpose of dying.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Contrast with Bus Crash, in which the actors do not return, and we are told of their off-screen deaths some seasons later, complete with a failure of their bodies to appear, at least in an intact state.
A number of reasons may exist for this: perhaps the actor has agreed to return, but insists on being killed to give the character closure. Or perhaps, now that such characters have been gone for a while and there's no clear sign of needing them again, the writers decided to do something nasty to the characters that they'd previously been afraid to do something irrevocable to. Or it could just be a way to kill someone off for real with the impact of killing a major character without the plot inconveniences this usually causes. Occasionally it's because they need a character they previously Killed Off for Real briefly, so they pull a Not Quite Dead or Back from the Dead followed by another death. And sometimes it just seems like they do it for no discernible reason other than to change how a character leaves the show.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Compare Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome and A Death in the Limelight.
This list of examples has been alphabetized. Please add your example in the proper place. Thanks!

In We're Alive Angel was last seen stranded on the roof of the collapsing Tower and was presumed dead at the end of Season 2. In season 3 he is revealed to be in the hands of the Mallers and in horrible shape. After some attempts at interrogation by Scratch, she promptly shoots him in the head.

Star Trek Online does it to Tasha Yar (see Star Trek: The Next Generation above) again in episode "Klingon War", mission "Temporal Ambassador". The Enterprise-C crew, including Yar, ended up getting captured by the Tholians and dragged into another Alternate Timeline along with the Player Character, and they have to fight their way free so they can go do their Heroic Sacrifice.

The fifth season of Samurai Jack has The Scotsman return as an old man, leading a vast army of tanks, rhino cavalry and his badass daughters into battle against Aku. Aku steamrolls the army and nonchalantly vaporizes him down to a skeleton in front of his mortified daughters. Literally thirty seconds later, he rises up out of the ashes as a ghost, not looking that concerned about his death, telling them to go look for Jack so they can beat Aku for good.

Forum of Thrones: An in-universe example happens with Rayden. After being out of his life for many years, he encounters Clayton again just hours before he is killed, by the very same man nonetheless.
Lyria doesn't appear at all in Chapter 7, giving her a several month-long break. She returns as a Point-of-View character in Chapter 8, which features her brutal death at the hands of Wolfius.
While he appears in the chapters, Torvin, originally one of the most major Point-of-View characters, doesn't have any parts of his own in Chapter 6 and 7 and is overall Demoted to Extra. He returns as a major Point-of-View character in full force in Chapter 8. However, at the very end of it, he is killed by Edward Anturion.

It's not uncommon for combatants in Death Battle to survive one battle and lose another or, even worse, lose another battle. Among those, Ryu lost to Scorpion, but defeated Jin Kazama, Goku was defeated by Superman twice, Captain Marvel was defeated by Android #18 and later Shazam, and Batman defeated Captain America but lost to Black Panther and Spider-Man. Sonic the Hedgehog won his first battle against Mario but lost the second, Shadow The Hedgehog lost to both Vegeta and later Mewtwo, Charizard first lost the Pokemon Battle Royale, and then, alongside Red, lost to Tai and Agumon, Mega Man lost to Astro Boy and later, in the Mega Man Battle Royale, was the second of the Mega Men to die, only beating Volnutt, Ganondorf defeated Bowser, but later lost to Dracula, and Tommy Oliver appeared twice, once piloting the Tigerzord, and the other piloting the Dragonzord. He lost both times.

Ortega, the hero's father in Dragon Quest III is missing and presumed dead for the bulk of the game. In the very last dungeon, you encounter him fighting one of the penultimate bosses and watch him get killed.
He can be wished back to life after beating the Bonus Boss, though.

Arrow:
Played with in regards to Sara — it's believed since the pilot that she's been dead since the Queen's Gambit sank, only to turn out to be alive and well in Season 2, during which she's an important secondary character. At the end of the season, she leaves town, only to return midway through the Season 3 premiere... and is killed in the closing moments. Heavy fan backlash resulted in her getting brought back to life using the Lazarus Pits a season later (with John Constantine helping to recover her soul), and she’s currently in charge of a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits gallivanting across space/time.
Played straight with Malcolm Merlyn, who is absent for most of Season 5 (he was busy with Thawne and Darhk) and comes back in the penultimate episode, only to be (apparently) killed in a Heroic Sacrifice/Taking You with Me moment. Ditto for Digger "Captain Boomerang" Harkness, who hasn't been seen since Season 3, and is apparently killed by Merlyn stepping off a landmine in his immediate vicinity.

The third film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon has Barricade make a return appearance after disappearing inexplicably during the end of the first (although with tie-in comics explaining what happened to him). He appears rounding up the Autobots as prisoners, before executing Wheeljack/Que, and then angrily berating a few Decepticon troops after Bumblebee seizes an opportunity for freedom and kills Soundwave. His eyes are then shot out by human snipers before his legs are destroyed with boomsticks and is then finished off whilst crippled. Though it's subverted as the subsequent sequel Transformers: The Last Knight reveals he has somehow cheated death yet again, and in The Last Knight he escapes unscathed.

Adam Monroe, former immortal, was buried alive at the end of season two, but he was let out briefly in the following season apparently for the sole purpose of being Killed Off for Real in a rather egregious manner. Maybe they were saving him for this. (His death basically created the new Big Bad.)
A variation happened earlier in season two for DL. The second season starts by skipping months ahead, and we're told that DL is dead, presumably from his gunshot wound in the season one finale. But no, he appears in a flashback only to get killed by some random guy who was hot for his wife. The entire exercise seems completely pointless.
Done with Emile Danko at the beginning of Season 4. As the Big Bad of Season 3, he survived that season only to be brought back for two episodes for a somewhat contrived reason during Season 4 only to be killed off immediately by the new villains.

Chloe Richards returned to Home and Away in 2005 in the lead up to the show's 4000th episode after leaving in 1999. Meanwhile, promos for the 4000th episode promised that a beloved character would die as a result of events happening in that episode. Who died as a result of that episode's car accident? It was Chloe of course.

Star Trek: Picard provides two examples of this in "Stardust City Rag." The first sees Icheb mercy-killed by Seven of Nine after having his Borg parts harvested by a black-market dealer. He was last seen in "Endgame" on Voyager, 19 years before. Bruce Maddox also reappeared only to get murdered, after appearing in one episode of The Next Generation, "Measure of a Man", from 1989, over thirty years earlier!

Neji Hyuga in Naruto. After being one of the most important genin before the time skip, he is rarely seen afterwards and has practically no effect on the plot after his fight during the Sasuke Rescue Arc. He doesn't get any real screen time until the Ten Tails Revival arc, where he gets killed off over the course of two chapters.

After running out of regeneration power, Gluttony from Fullmetal Alchemist is absorbed into Father during Volume 14. In Volume 21, he returns... only to be killed off by Pride by the end of the Volume.
Bido is the only one of Greed's chimera allies to survive Bradley's attack on their base. He's not seen again until much later when he runs into the new Greed, who killed him, causing him to regain the previous Greed's memories.
Yoki in the 2003 anime version, who shows back up after his first appearance just long enough to be skewered through the head by Lust and spark a riot.

Young Justice Titans features the return of the Riddler after a 2 season absence. The author tries to treat his fics as serious continuations of the series, so Riddler finally reappears onscreen, only to be murdered ON SCREEN by fellow Batman villain, the Scarecrow.

House of Cards (US): Rachel escapes at the end of Season 2 and runs away to start a new life for herself. She doesn't appear throughout all of Season 3 (though Doug spends most of the season searching for her) until the last episode, when she finally reappears onscreen only to be murdered by Doug.

In RWBY Starter Villain Roman Torchwick continuously returns and disappears throughout the first two volumes. After getting arrested at the conclusion of Volume 2, it seemed that he would be put aside for good. However, he returns in Volume 3, Episode 9 to cause a lot of damage before facing down Ruby one last time and ultimately get eaten by a Griffin Grimm in the middle of a Villainous Breakdown.

In Fist of the North Star, Kenshiro's thought-to-dead fiancee Yuria is revealed to be the Last General of Nanto, which was followed by a rather extensive retcon of her previous death scene which explained how she survived and why Shin lied to Ken about her death. However, we later find out that Yuria is suffering from a terminal illness and even though Kenshiro is reunited with her, we later find out in the next story arc that Yuria has passed away in the years afterward.

Charlie DiSalvo from Highlander falls into this. Charlie gets sort of Put on a Bus: he falls in love with a revolutionary and leaves everything to fight for her cause. He returns for one episode, where he describes how they were set up by an immortal arms dealer who intentionally sold them defective weapons and killed his girl. Charlie comes hunting for revenge, but as he doesn't know about immortals and his opponent is one, he winds up dying.

In Modern Warfare 3, Sgt. Kamarov (the Russian Loyalist who rescued Soap and Price during the final level of the original Modern Warfare) returns, and dies a couple missions later when Makarov's men kidnap him and use him as bait to keep Captain Price in one place so a bomb can kill them both. Price catches on when Kamarov tells him he's sorry, and manages to get out of the blast zone before Kamarov is killed. Earlier, Wallcroft and Griffin (the two main supporting characters who assisted you in "Crew Expendable" from the original MW) reappear as they respond to a terrorist bomb threat in London, and in the process of chasing the train carrying the bomb, Griffin is killed when his truck crashes.

Parodied during one of J.D.'s daydreams: Turk and Carla have a son, but due to a mix-up they misplace him and end up with a pumpkin instead. They decide to raise the pumpkin as their child, and we're treated to a lengthy growing-up montage. Then, on the day the pumpkin is graduating from college, the son reappears. "Mom? Dad?" "Son?" He starts to run towards them for an embrace... and is hit by a bus. Cue Big "NO!".
Played straight however with Ben Sullivan and Jill Tracy.

In Super Dimension Century Orguss Sley, the protagonist Kei's rival in love, is presumably lost in battle about mid way through the series, with it left unknown whether he survived or died. Some time later, Sley reunites with the crew and, within that same episode, performs a Heroic Sacrifice to allow the heroes to get away from the enemy.

In the Rocko's Modern Life movie Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling, there are two minor characters brought back only to be killed off.
Captain Compost Heap from the episode "Zanzibar" makes a brief appearance in the beginning where he gets flattened by Rocko's house. A news crawl seen later in the special confirms that he didn't survive.
Filburt's Aunt Gretchen from "Sugar Frosted Frights" appears among the characters who show up to view the premiere of the new Fatheads special. She ends up getting killed after a smart phone is hurled into her water tank.

Supernatural
An odd example with Jo and Ellen Harvelle, two characters from season 2, who were let go at the end of the season for budgetary reasons and did not appear in seasons 3 or 4. They were brought back in season 5, and survived their return episode, only for both of them to be killed off in their next appearance.
Another example is Anna from season 4, a character who was central to a two part episode. Like the above, she survives the return episode and then is killed off her next episode in season 5.
Played straight with Lenore, played by Amber Benson. She was a vampire from early on in the second season who avoided drinking blood from humans and ultimately wound up getting saved by the brothers. She then returns four and a half seasons later where all the recent demon activity has caused her thirst to become uncontrollable, so she asks Sam and Dean put her out of her misery. While they waffle about the morality of this, Cas does as she asked.
After an increase in importance in the season 7 finale, Meg is captured by Crowley and disappears for most of season 8, until she is rescued in episode 17 and killed off in the same episode.
The episode "Clip Show" does this for a couple characters from early in the show's run. A few are the victim of the Bus Crash variety, while Sarah from the first season episode "Provenance" comes back to become one of Crowley's victims.
In season 10, Amelia Novak (a character from season 4) returns and is killed off in the episode Angel Heart.
Tessa, a minor character in seasons 1, 4, and 6, reappears in the S9 episode "Stairway to Heaven" and is swiftly killed by Dean.
After infrequent appearances for 4 seasons and disappearing for most of S9 and S10, Death himself reappears in the S10 finale and is killed with his own scythe.
The Trickster/Gabriel, a minor character in S2 and S3, after disappearing for S4, survived his return episode in "Changing Channels" only to again be killed off by Lucifer in his next appearance in "Hammer of the Gods". As it turns out in season 13, he had only faked his death (again). He sticks along for a few more episodes, only to be killed off yet another time by a parallel universe version of Michael.
Missouri Mosely, a psychic from season 1 returns in season 13 and gets killed by a wraith early in the episode.

24:
David Palmer was dropped as a regular character at the end of season 3 and made only a brief appearance in season 4. He returned in the premiere of season 5, only to be assassinated after less than a minute of screen time. Dennis Haysbert was not happy about it.
Milo Pressman returns in season 6 after disappearing midway through the first season. In a variation, he survives most of the season only to die three episodes before the season finale.

Earth: Final Conflict has William Boone, the protagonist for the first season, being killed off in the season finale by the Big Bad Zo'or (to spite his rival/parent Da'an). Zo'or himself is killed at the end of the fourth season by overdosing on energy. Most of the way through season 5, the show's Dragon Ronald Sandoval revives Boone (revealing he was Only Mostly Dead) in order to bait the new protagonist Renee Palmer and also revives Zo'or (same justification) in order to kill Boone and Renee. Zo'or is promptly turned into an Atavus and gets defeated by Boone, frozen by Sandoval just in case. Boone disappears, shows up in one more episode, and is mentioned by Ra'jel to have been killed off-screen (yes, the protagonist of the first season doesn't even get the honor of a screen death). Zo'or himself is brought back from the freezer only to be killed for good by Renee. Surprisingly averted with Liam Kincaid, the protagonist for seasons 2-4, who mysteriously disappears at the end of the fourth season. He reappears in the Grand Finale and makes it through to the end.

Metal Gear:
In Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Big Boss, who was thought to be dead, is revealed to be alive and then promptly dies after providing a truly epic 45 minute Infodump.
Happens again in Ground Zeroes, to Paz Ortega, who was MIA after the events of Peace Walker and looks like she's been rescued during the ending of Ground Zeroes, only to realize that she had a bomb inside of her for the purpose of blowing up Big Boss. And when he gets that bomb out of her, she reveals there's another one inside of her, and with no time to operate and remove the second one, she's forced to pull a Heroic Suicide.

One early example would be Kathy Kane, the original Batwoman; she had been written out after Batman was revamped in 1964. She briefly came out of retirement to guest star in several several issues in the late '70s (over a decade later!) only to be killed off for dramatic effect by the League of Assassins after several appearances.

In the thirteenth season of Degrassi Adam comes back after being missing for an entire block of episodes only to die seven episodes later in surgery after getting into a car accident caused by texting and driving. The official reasoning being that the actress' contract was up. In the two-part season 2 finale, Craig's father returns— trying and failing to mend things with Craig after hitting him again —only to be killed in the same episode.

During the infamous Iron Man storyline The Crossing, D-list former Avengers Yellowjacket and Gilgamesh returned to the team just so that they could be killed off. This then started a subplot about Hawkeye being framed for their murders.

The X-Files.
A famous example is Max Fenig, a fan favorite from an episode of the first season. After being abducted at the episode's conclusion, he reappeared in the teaser at the beginning of a fourth season episode… as a dead body in the wreckage of an airplane. The rest of the two-parter dealt with reconstructing how this came to pass and dealing with its implications.
The Lone Gunmen are killed off after their standalone series is cancelled. There's a few swipes taken at the demise of their show ("What better things do we have to do?"). The episode is even named "Jump the Shark". In the Season 10 comic continuation, in which popular characters like the Cigarette-Smoking Man or Krycek are resurrected as clones and copies, Joe Harris explicitly rewrote the ending of "Jump the Shark" to reveal that TLG had actually faked their deaths, which goes to show how controversial the original episode was. It also speaks to the cynicism as the heart of X-Files by this point; the characters were killed off because the show was about to end and TLG weren't planned to be used in any of the films, then magically resurrected for the comic book line.
There's also the Cigarette Smoking Man, who was killed off at the end of the seventh season. Two years later he was revealed to still be alive in the series finale, and then proceeded to get blown up by a missile. He was revealed to be alive in the 2016 return and is revealed as the Big Bad of the Myth Arc.

Marvel Cinematic Universe:
Arnim Zola in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, who is last seen in the previous Captain America movie. After setting off the bad-guy plot and leading to the current crisis, and earning a whole scene of appearance, he calls in a missile attack on the location of his mainframe in the hope of killing Steve and Natasha.
The Other, Thanos's servant in The Avengers, who served as communication between Thanos and Loki to hide the former's identity until the mid-credits scene. In Guardians of the Galaxy, he is there to keep Ronan from looking like a wimp compared to Thanos... by being killed by him. He is absent from flashbacks and alternate timelines set at points in which he would still be alive so this is his only appearance after The Avengers, and accounts for his absence in the present day of Avengers: Infinity War, which would otherwise have been unexplained.
Baron Von Strucker, the Hydra agent in the post credits scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier leading into the introduction of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. He returns at the beginning of Avengers: Age of Ultron, is defeated by Cap, captured by NATO, and unceremoniously killed offscreen by Ultron.
After having a building collapse on top of him and being left with heavy bodily damage in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Brock Rumlow returns under his comic book moniker of "Crossbones" in the opening scene of Captain America: Civil War, where he goes up agianst the Avengers and blows himself up when backed into a corner during a skirmish in Lagos.
Ulysses Klaue, who appeared at one moment in Avengers: Age of Ultron, returns in Black Panther. He lasts a little bit longer than all the other minor villains who die in their second appearance.
A somewhat subverted and unconfirmed instance: Having appeared in the post credits scene of Thor: The Dark World and a relatively brief scene in Guardians of the Galaxy, The Collector is first seen in Avengers: Infinity War being threatened by Thanos... only to find it's an illusion, and Thanos has already taken the Aether and reduced Knowhere to a flaming wasteland, implying he killed the Collector, though we're not entirely sure.
Having been gone since Avengers: Age of Ultron, Nick Fury and Maria Hill return in Avengers: Infinity War — specifically in The Stinger — only to have them both be disintegrated out of existence after Thanos collects all of the Infinity Stones.

Big Finish Doctor Who:
One audio drama reveals that Adric, of all people, survived and created a... mental universe full of math scorpions which is even weirder than it sounds, and then dies for real at the end of the story to give the Doctor his missing TARDIS back.
Sort of happens to the Burned Master, the version Big Finish uses the most (for various reasons). After many, many, many false goes, he's apparently killed during "Ravenous" series 4. The end of "Day of the Master" has three future versions of himself reviving him, and giving him a new regeneration cycle. He's up and around just long enough to freak out before the regeneration kicks in. Which is about half a minute.

In Farscape, Jool leaves the regular cast four episodes into the fourth season. She reappears (with a rather different Jungle Princess characterisation) in the Wrap It Up miniseries "The Peacekeeper Wars", and is fairly rapidly killed along with a whole lot of other people to give the Scarrans an extreme Kick the Dog moment.
The “Liars, Guns, and Money” trilogy brought back a bunch of villains from the first season, with almost all of them biting the dust. The most notable casualty is Rygel’s Arch-Enemy Durka, who, in the first season, had been the most recurring antagonist outside of Crais and Scorpius, but is quickly killed off by Rygel here, who was savvy enough to bring a weapon to a meeting with Durka.

Smallville in general loves this trope with its guest characters. If a one-shot character returns in a future season they pretty much had a death sentence written.
Alicia is slightly different from the usual version because she was a one-shot character. In season 3 she was obsessed with Clark, but she was presented as having had a breakdown and being somewhat sympathetic, and some viewers liked her as a love interest for Clark. She was brought back in the next season just to be killed off, permanently ending the possibility of being a love interest.
Whitney also qualifies: We see him die on-screen before the shapeshifter shows up.
If Alicia counts, so do several other characters, including but not restrained to the above mentioned shapeshifter.

Similarly, in Stargate SG-1, Martouf was a frequently recurring character in season 3, representing the Tok'ra in dealings with the SGC (along with Jacob/Selmak). In season 4, there is a new representative and Martouf is not seen until the episode of his death. Martouf (to be more exact, his symbiote Lantash) did come Back for the Dead later on, this time having the symbiote die instead of the host.

Mass Effect 3
The Virmire survivor (Ashley/Kaidan) is Demoted to Extra in the second game, but returns in 3 to fight alongside Shepard in the first mission after the tutorial... only to immediately have their skull nearly crushed by a cyborg sent by the Illusive Man. However, they're still alive. Which may or may not change later on midway through the game depending on what actions Shepard has taken as well as how strong Shepard's Reputation/Paragon and Renegade meter is.
Grunt and Kasumi, assuming you won their loyalty in 2 are both apparently killed onscreen and only survive if they're loyal.
Played straight with Legion and Thane, however - the only real way for them to not die in 3 is for them to have died in 2, and while you get a few conversations with them beforehand, most of their presence is setting up for their death scenes. Mordin is also guaranteed to die outside of a very specific set of decisions.
Conrad Verner, assuming he's still alive at this point, will take a bullet for you unless an apparently unrelated sidequest was completed way back in 1. This isn't even counting people who get taken out offscreen.

In late 2010, DC came out with a Batman Beyond comic mini-series (canon to the DCAU and Darker and Edgier). A villain escapes from Cadmus, supposedly Hush. He kills some former Batman villains (Bruce-era) in the style of other villains. At one point, we cut to Armory, one of Terry's villains, who only was a villain once. This is the first time since "Armory" we've seen him. Him, his wife, and his high-school age step-son (who is a friend of Terry and Max) are promptly killed by Hush.

Bendy and the Ink Machine: Players are first introduced to Norman Polk through his audio recording in Chapter 2. In Chapter 3, we see him in-person because he's become an ink monster known as the Projectionist. He shows up again in Chapter 4, only to be killed by Bendy. If Player Character Henry killed him in Chapter 3, this overlaps with Back from the Dead. Interestingly, this might be averted if Henry goes back for the secret bacon soup gun and shoots the Projectionist with it - the body may disappear by the time Henry returns to the spot he "killed" him. It's unclear whether this is because Norman has gotten up and left on his own or if Bendy moved the body, but the lack of inky drag marks suggests the former.
There's also Sammy Lawrence, who showed up in Chapter 2 and was presumably killed by Bendy. In Chapter 5, he comes back for his own Boss Battle.

On Passions, the character Grace Bennett was written out of the show by having her move to England with her supposed first husband, David. Viewers knew that David had never really been married to the amnesiac Grace. Years later, the ruse was revealed by Grace's daughter Kay in a phone conversation; Grace appeared onscreen and was enraged at the (offscreen) David, and decided to return to her real family. She was promptly killed when her bus to the airport exploded; series antagonist "The Blackmailer" feared her psychic abilities would expose him.

Batman
James Robinson's "Face to Face" storyline, in which various supervillains who had fallen into obscurity were brought back to be murdered by a new serial killer (the Tally Man under Great White's orders). The victims, some of whom had appeared more recently than others, were The Ventriloquist I, Magpie, KGBeast and Orca.
In late 2010, DC came out with a Batman Beyond comic mini-series (canon to the DCAU and Darker and Edgier). A villain escapes from Cadmus, supposedly Hush. He kills some former Batman villains (Bruce-era) in the style of other villains. At one point, we cut to Armory, one of Terry's villains, who only was a villain once. This is the first time since "Armory" we've seen him. Him, his wife, and his high-school age step-son (who is a friend of Terry and Max) are promptly killed by Hush.
One early example would be Kathy Kane, the original Batwoman; she had been written out after Batman was revamped in 1964. She briefly came out of retirement to guest star in several several issues in the late '70s (over a decade later!) only to be killed off for dramatic effect by the League of Assassins after several appearances.
In the mid-80's a villain called Film Freak was introduced, who committed crimes based off movies. After the 3-part arc with him he did not appear again for years until the storyline Knightfall, where he's reintroduced in the very first chapter, and then is immediately beaten to death by Bane.
Jeph Loeb also seems fond of this trope, as he's dug through various characters to use as murderer fodder in his murder mystery storylines. The Long Halloween and its follow-up Batman: Dark Victory were originally made to show what happened to the mobster characters from Batman: Year One. The Long Halloween brings all of the mobsters shown or mentioned as well as two characters from Two-Face's origin story to be killed off by the Holiday killer and/or Two-Face himself (although to be fair some of them, like Falcone himself, get actual storylines before dying). Dark Victory gives the same treatment to pretty much every cop character that had been named in Year One as well as a modern counterpart of Chief O'Hara. His later storyline Hush is lighter in comparison murder-wise, although long absent Batman ally Harold (the deaf-mute who acts as a mechanic for the Batmobile) was brought back to serve as one of Hush's victims.

Daniel Dickinson in Warehouse 13 was initially part of the primary cast. After the first season ended, he disappeared until the ninth episode of the second—in which he was murdered before the opening credits rolled.

Count Dooku is a pivotal figure in Attack of the Clones and any Clone Wars-related media (such as Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as the one leading the Separatist movement. His appearance in Revenge of the Sith? Shows up on the bridge of General Grievous' ship, engages in a short battle with Obi-Wan and Anakin, loses both hands then killed off by having a cranial-ectomy in almost no screentime.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. Sephiroth, the Big Bad of the original game doesn't "physically" appear in the movie until the end, where he then delivers an ass-whipping to Cloud before being destroyed... and by destroyed, we mean slashed a grand total of 12 times with a more powerful version of the sword shown on the picture for BFS. Sephiroth does imply, however, that he cannot truly die, and can continue to return.

Final Fantasy II is a game where the Arbitrary Headcount Limit of the game's party is maintained by Plotline Death, with three exceptions: Fynn's royal aide Minwu, who goes back to his duties after crutching the party for a while, Kashuan prince Gordon, who stays around just enough to get over his self-worth issues, and Sea Scourge Leila, who escapes an ambush where your main party got captured by the skin of her teeth, but then sticks around with the rest of the rebels, which your team is part of, by the time the group returns... And then Minwu plays this trope straight, by offering his life in exchange for unsealing the tome with the ultimate spell, necessary for fighting back against The Emperor's hostile takeover of the lands.

Gauron in Full Metal Panic!! The Second Raid. Kinda a weird example, since Gauron had been "assumed dead" at least 3-or-4 times in the past (and twice in the first season) before the second season. Every time he and Main Character Sōsuke cross paths, something happens that should have killed him (for example, the first time Sōsuke shot him in the head), only for him to reappear later with some excuse as to how he survived (He had a metal plate in his skull from an earlier wound). However, Sōsuke kills him for good in the second season.

Transformers
In Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Scorponok, who disappeared early in the first film after being badly damaged, pulls a Dynamic Entry in the climactic desert battle and guts Jetfire, only to have Jetfire throw him to the ground and pound him into scrap with one blow.
The third film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon has Barricade make a return appearance after disappearing inexplicably during the end of the first (although with tie-in comics explaining what happened to him). He appears rounding up the Autobots as prisoners, before executing Wheeljack/Que, and then angrily berating a few Decepticon troops after Bumblebee seizes an opportunity for freedom and kills Soundwave. His eyes are then shot out by human snipers before his legs are destroyed with boomsticks and is then finished off whilst crippled. Though it's subverted as the subsequent sequel Transformers: The Last Knight reveals he has somehow cheated death yet again, and in The Last Knight he escapes unscathed.

An egregious example comes in the form of Nicky Parsons in Jason Bourne. The way the character was presented in the advertising and shown to not be given much to do alerted fans almost immediately that she was gonna die fairly early and without fail, that's what happened.

Danganronpa
In Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Byakuya Togami, one of the survivors of the first game, is shown to be amongst the sixteen students, albeit with major weight gain. However, he ends up being the first victim. It's revealed towards the end of the game that he was not the real Byakuya, but someone called the Ultimate Impostor.
During the course of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, the Monokubs are killed one by one during the various executions, with all of them dead by Chapter 4's end, only for Monokuma to bring them all Back from the Dead just before Chapter 5's execution, then kill them off one by one during the final trial.

The Lone Gunmen are killed off after their standalone series is cancelled. There's a few swipes taken at the demise of their show ("What better things do we have to do?"). The episode is even named "Jump the Shark". In the Season 10 comic continuation, in which popular characters like the Cigarette-Smoking Man or Krycek are resurrected as clones and copies, Joe Harris explicitly rewrote the ending of "Jump the Shark" to reveal that TLG had actually faked their deaths, which goes to show how controversial the original episode was. It also speaks to the cynicism as the heart of X-Files by this point; the characters were killed off because the show was about to end and TLG weren't planned to be used in any of the films, then magically resurrected for the comic book line.

On Sisters, second-oldest sister Teddy finally found true love with a local detective, only for him to break her heart when he left her to reconcile with his ex-wife. He returned several episodes later to beg for her forgiveness. They married, allowing Teddy about five minutes of happiness before her heart was broken again when he was killed by a Car Bomb by a drug lord he was preparing to testify against. (the backstory on this is that cop's portrayer, George Clooney, had left to film the pilot and first few episodes of ER and returned to wrap up the storyline)

Spider-Man:
The original Hobgoblin was absent from the main Spidey titles for more than a decade. The writers eventually bowed to fan demand and brought him back... just in time for him to be killed and his murderer to take his stuff and become the new Hobgoblin. Later subverted when it was revealed that it was Hobgoblin's brother who died, not the real deal.
Spider-Verse isn't holding back on this trope, killing off the Spider-Men from Marvel 1602, Spider-Man: Reign, Spider-Man Unlimited (and given Slott, like many people, holds the opinion of Unlimited being a sequel to Spider-Man: The Animated Series, this means that show's Spidey is dead, too), Bullet Pointsnote Bruce Banner and Peter Parker having swapped roles, and House of M, as well as the Mary Jane Spider-Woman from Exiles and Twinkies-advertising Spider-Man from Howard the Duck, the Prince of Arachne from Marvel Fairy Tales, the Betty Brant Spider-Girl, Arachnosaur, and the Spidey from Marvel vs. Capcom. The Amazing Friends version of Iceman and Firestar, the Unlimited versions of the Knights of Wundagore, as well as Mayday Parker's parents are also dead.

In the Gaunt's Ghosts novel Sabbat Martyr, Agun Soric is taken by the Black Ships as an untrained psyker. Four books later, in Only in Death, he returns as a sanctioned psyker. The man who turned him over to the inquisition in the first place is so horrified by what has happened to him in the intervening years that he administers a Mercy Kill.
This trope basically drives the plot of Traitor General, with the eponymous traitor being eventually revealed a mind-locked General Sturm, whom Gaunt had arrested (back in Necropolis, 5 books ago) for desertion, cowardice in the face of the enemy, and attempted murder. The Ghosts have to try and execute/assassinate Sturm before he gets his memory back and starts spilling his secrets to the Archenemy.

Additionally, it's subverted for Margo Green. She was actually the main character in the very first two books, The Relic and Reliquary, and did not appear again until the sixth novel, Dance of Death, which had her attacked and apparently killed by Diogenes Pendergast barely halfway through the novel.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure:
Stardust Crusaders:
Muhammad Avdol is seemingly killed off by the Hol Horse/J.Geil Combo. He was so popular that Araki eventually brought him back... only to participate in only two fights (neither of which have him as the focus) and then swiftly die again at the hands of Vanilla Ice.
Noriaki Kakyoin is put out of commission for a good while during the Crusaders' time in Egypt (even though we know he isn't dead... yet). When he does return to the group, he dies two arcs later, but at the very least gives out a Dying Clue that helps Jotaro win against DIO.
In Steel Ball Run, Mountain Tim is around for two and a half arcs, then retires from the race. Some time later, he returns to save Lucy Steel from Funny Valentine and his thugs, only to be shot in the head after refusing to reveal her location.

Game of Thrones:
Ser Dontos avoids execution in season 2 thanks to Sansa, then returns in season 4 and is soon killed by Baelish's mooks after he delivers Sansa to him. He had appeared in the season's previous two episodes, but had very little screen time overall.
Several characters from the Harrenhall scenes in Season 2 show up in Season 4 to be dispatched by Arya and the Hound (Polliver in the season premier has a brief appearance and subsequent Karmic Death and Rorge and Biter appear in Episode 7, with Biter getting less than 5 seconds of screentime before being killed).
Season 6 has had this happen to a couple characters - Osha, Rickon, and Hodor - who sat out Season 5 and 4, in case of the first two due to their storylines having no relevance to that particular season. Osha was last seen at the end of Season 3, where she left to take Rickon to the Umbers. These characters came back for brief appearances in Season 6 before being dispatched. Rickon, in particular, only appeared for two scenes: his reintroduction and his death at Ramsay's hands. Osha is unceremoniously murdered by Ramsay in only her second scene.
The Lord of Bones returns solely to be killed.
Myrcella returns in Season 5 after being Put on a Bus for two whole seasons.
Balon Greyjoy finally returns in Season 6 after a two season absence, only to get killed in the same episode.
Almost all of the above are a result of many scenes featuring these characters in the book, between their introduction and their death, being cut for the series.

Lost Odyssey features this early in the game. Throughout the first segment of the game, the amnesiac protagonist Kaim has flashes of a little girl throwing herself/falling off a cliff. Eventually, Kaim reunites with this child, his daughter Lirum, only for her to almost immediately die of a long illness.

In the original Ninja Gaiden the protagonist, Ryu Hayabusa, is fighting to fulfill a quest left behind by his father, Ken, who in the game's prologue fought and lost in a ninja duel. After defeating the fifth boss, Ryu learns that his father is alive, and eventually discovers Ken Hayabusa as a mind-controlled slave of the villain the Jaquio. As soon as he is freed Ken is killed by the Jaquio and dies in Ryu's arms.

In the mid-80's a villain called Film Freak was introduced, who committed crimes based off movies. After the 3-part arc with him he did not appear again for years until the storyline Knightfall, where he's reintroduced in the very first chapter, and then is immediately beaten to death by Bane.

In Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Lt. Gillette, who unlike Lt. Groves did not appear in either of the first two sequels (despite having had a somewhat bigger role than Groves in Curse of the Black Pearl) and had been assumed dead by many of the fans, returned only to be killed off rather unceremoniously in the final battle.

In Stargate Universe, everyone who was left behind on Eden suddenly showed up with bodies that had been "improved" by Sufficiently Advanced Aliens. It turns out that the improvements were only temporary. One by one, each person reverted back to the state they were in when the aliens found them, i.e., dead. Seemingly the whole plot was so the main characters could have another shuttle (after they destroyed the last one).

Robo from Chrono Trigger, or at least his program (as he is a robot), show up for approximately two minutes in Chrono Cross just to be immediately deleted. He didn't even get to keep the name we knew him by. One has to wonder if it was done in order to make you actually have a beef against FATE, who apart from that was only doing what it was programmed to.

In the series finale of Two and a Half Men, it is revealed that Charlie, who was originally thought to be killed by his love-stricken wife, was actually not hit by a train (the goat he had been having sex with took the hit for him), but instead was held captive by her in a dungeon-pit for the past four years. After teasing at him making an appearance throughout the entire episode, they finally show him from the back walking up to the house's front door and ringing the bell, only to be crushed by a helicopter-suspended piano immediately afterwards. The show's creator, Chuck Lorre, is shown sitting in front of the set where he is killed by another piano soon after.

Doctor Who:
The Seventh Doctor's debut story, "Time and the Rani", is ironically a subversion; the Sixth Doctor appears long enough to regenerate, but was played by Sylvester McCoy in a wig, as Colin Baker had already been fired from the show.
The old series nearly had a example of this, as the Brigadier — a regular during the '60s and '70s who was last seen as a guest star in 1983 — was almost killed off in 1989's "Battlefield" (behind-the-scenes lobbying resulted in his life being spared).
The made-for-TV movie did this to the Seventh Doctor, who appeared for the sole purpose of getting shot and then regenerating into the Eighth Doctor.
Similarly, the mini-episode "The Night of the Doctor" (here) features the return of the Eighth Doctor. He suffers fatal injuries in a spaceship crash trying to save a woman who refused his help. The ones who pull him from the wreckage bring him back long enough to be able to choose his next regeneration and enable him to end the Time War, which gives us the War Doctor.
Subverted in the Series 9 finale, "Hell Bent". Clara, who had been Killed Off for Real two episodes earlier, returned in a storyline that saw the character removed from time an instant before her death by the Doctor in an effort to save her life. As his Tragic Dream unravels, the episode hints that Clara will just end up dead again by the end. Ultimately, while Clara must still someday meet the fate set out in "Face the Raven", until she chooses to die she is free to roam the universe indefinitely as a functional immortal.

Call of Duty:
Call of Duty: Black Ops: Dimitri Petrenko returns from World at War and is revealed to have survived the final mission... until he dies during Kravchenko's Nova 6 test in a horribly brutal fashion.
In Modern Warfare 3, Sgt. Kamarov (the Russian Loyalist who rescued Soap and Price during the final level of the original Modern Warfare) returns, and dies a couple missions later when Makarov's men kidnap him and use him as bait to keep Captain Price in one place so a bomb can kill them both. Price catches on when Kamarov tells him he's sorry, and manages to get out of the blast zone before Kamarov is killed. Earlier, Wallcroft and Griffin (the two main supporting characters who assisted you in "Crew Expendable" from the original MW) reappear as they respond to a terrorist bomb threat in London, and in the process of chasing the train carrying the bomb, Griffin is killed when his truck crashes.

In Legend of Dragoon, Lloyd apparently gets a bridge dropped on him after the revelation that 'Emperor Diaz' is in fact Zieg and trying to destroy the world. Later, after Zieg is defeated and it turns out that he was possessed by Melbu Frahma all along, Lloyd suddenly reappears... only to launch a reckless attack on Melbu and get promptly Killed Off for Real. He does bring you the Divine Dragoon Spirit and the Dragon Buster for the final fight, though.

Blake's 7:
Blake returned in the last episode and was killed off there by Avon, because Blake was too stupid to explain his real motives, leading Avon to think Blake was a traitor. Definitely a Fanon Discontinuity moment for diehard fans. Blake's death was apparently a condition for Gareth Thomas (Blake) to appear in the episode, his death included blood to make sure that he was really dead. Seeing as it ended up being the final episode, it didn't really matter anyway, especially as just about everyone else ended up dead by the end of the episode anyway.
The deaths of the other characters was left deliberately ambiguous so that they could return if the series was extended.

William Smithback, Jr., suffers this in the Agent Pendergast series of novels. He is a recurring character in the books, and after the events of Book of the Dead he does not appear at all in the next novel, The Wheel of Darkness. He then returns in the novel after that, Cemetery Dance, only to be killed in its very first chapter.
Additionally, it's subverted for Margo Green. She was actually the main character in the very first two books, The Relic and Reliquary, and did not appear again until the sixth novel, Dance of Death, which had her attacked and apparently killed by Diogenes Pendergast barely halfway through the novel. The very end of the book reveals that Pendergast saved her life.

Both Destroyman and Letz Shake from the original No More Heroes return for the sequel despite having seemingly been killed off (and the latter not even getting a proper boss fight.) Shinobu and Travis both make sure their deaths stick this time. Bishop also gets upgraded from being an NPC at Beef Head Video to actually getting a cutscene with voice acting, just in time for his death to spark Travis' Roaring Rampage of Revenge.

Of the five characters who came back for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Duke dies. Part of the reason for the delay (advertised for a 2012 release, came out summer 2013) was that test audiences weren't happy that there wasn't much development of the relationship between Duke & Roadblock before Duke's death early in the film.

In Guardians of the Galaxy, he is there to keep Ronan from looking like a wimp compared to Thanos... by being killed by him. He is absent from flashbacks and alternate timelines set at points in which he would still be alive so this is his only appearance after The Avengers, and accounts for his absence in the present day of Avengers: Infinity War, which would otherwise have been unexplained.

EastEnders
While this is open to dispute, the return of Dennis "Dirty Den" Watts could be considered a very drawn out example of this. When actor Leslie Grantham wanted to move on, Dirty Den was hit by gunfire on screen, but deliberately not shown to be dead. Den subsequently returned 14 years later, and died again, this time for real, 18 months after that. Leslie Grantham states in his autobiography that this was how it had been planned when he agreed to return: that the character would be killed off permanently after no more than 18 months.note This may be self-justification, as until the autobiography pretty much everyone in Britain was under the impression that his second stint on the show had ended because he was sacked after getting embarrassingly caught in a tabloid cybersex sting.
Ethel Skinner - after a 3 year absence from the show, she reappeared in Albert Square as part of a storyline on euthanasia.
Peggy Mitchell - After leaving the show on a regular basis in 2010, she returned for a couple of guest stints (of one episode) in 2013, 2014, and 2015. She then returned for another episode in January 2016 where she revealed her cancer had returned, and then returned for a week in May with the sole purpose being to kill her off.

South Park sort of played an example, then had another played straight:
Isaac Hayes, Chef's voice actor and a Scientologist, quit the show forever after the episode where Stan becomes the leader of Scientology. For quite a while, the show kept going without him, but after the fans started doubting, Chef was revived using footage and voice tracks from earlier episodes in "The Return of Chef", then died horribly. He was brought back as Darth Chef a few minutes later. He hasn't appeared in any episodes after that.
In "201", Pip, who didn't have any speaking line at all since season 6, came back, only for him to deliver a Sedgwick Speech and be killed by Mecha-Streisand moments later. Although, according to southparkstudios.com, he may not be entirely gone.
Veronica Crabtree, the long-absent school bus driver, turns up in "Cartman's Incredible Gift" as the victim of a serial killer. Lampshaded by the cops:

James Robinson clearly likes this trope, as his JSA run began with several magical heroes who had fallen into obscurity, such as Kid Eternity, being killed by Mordru.

Averted in Digimon Savers. Daimon Suguru is your typical shounen Disappeared Dad, whose fate is left uncertain for most of the series. However, it's revealed that Suguru's body is possessed by Yggdrasil, and his consciousness inhabits the group's mentor, BanchouLeomon. In the end, it seems Suguru is destroyed body and soul, but after being defeated in his true form, Yggdrasil resurrects Suguru and returns him to his family.

Happens to the original Paper in the 200th Strong Bad Email from Homestar Runner. The Paper actually died in Email 173, and later replaced by the New Paper. When New Paper produced a rival's Homestar's E-Mail address, The Paper cut him off making things right. He then gets burned by an errant spark from the computer of said Rival which Strong Bad is refreshing. With heavily-caffeinated soda.

The canon Season 8 comics do this with Ethan Rayne. After last being seen in season 4, he appears in the first arc of Season 8 only to be shot through the head after two issues.

A feature of Diabolik: to avoid the creation of a large cast that could potentially steal the attention from the three main characters, new characters introduced after the first three issues rarely return, and if they do they are almost always killed off (some have survived, but given that Anyone Can Die in this series they're not safe yet). Most notable was "Revenge Has a Long Memory", where two characters who had appeared only once each many years earlier appear just to die in one panel.

Clare Devine returned only to be killed when Mercedes pushes her in front of Dr Browning's car.
Tegan Lomax's baby was delivered by an eccentric midwife named Mariam. A year and a half later, it emerged that Mariam was actually drunk on duty at the time, and had mixed up Tegan's baby with Diane O'Connor's. Mariam returned - only to fall victim to a serial killer at the hospital.

Lieutenant Ford from Stargate Atlantis was almost killed by Wraith and managed to leave hopped up on the Wraith enzyme (a nasty drug) in the season 1 finale. In the season 2 midseason two-parter Ford comes back, and ends up on a Wraith vessel as it explodes.
Subverted as the later novels reveal that he survived his 'death', but remained on the run for years until he was caught by the Wraith and surrendered to Atlantis as part of a new peace treaty.

In The Gamer's Alliance, Marya and Mori'sul return only to die relatively quickly in the Godslayer era. The former ends up setting the stage for a power-hungry prince's return to the political stage of Maar Sul before committing suicide out of guilt, the latter is crushed by a collapsing temple while saving the heroes from certain death.

Vaudeville performers Vern and Johnny made recurring appearances in Season 4 of Family Guy. They are shot to death in Season 5's "Saving Private Brian" by Stewie who tells the audience they won't be returning. Despite this, they are seen yet again in the afterlife in "Back to the Woods" from Season 6.

Frieza was apparently killed by Goku at the end of the infamous Namek fight in Dragon Ball Z. He returned to get his revenge a few episodes later. Then Trunks came in and proceeded to slice him up into little bits...
The King Piccolo arc does this for several of the characters that appeared way back in the first Tournament arc, most notably Giran who is actually murdered on panel/screen by Tambourine. Unlike most uses of this trope though, they all get revived thanks to the show's MacGuffin.

In Illusion of Gaia, Kara's pet pig, Hamlet, gets separated from her early on in the game, namely when Kara decides to leave her castle, but later manages to join up with the party. However, very soon after, the party is captured by cannibals, and are only saved when Hamlet sacrifices himself to be food for the cannibals instead of the party.

The character of Carey from Star Trek: Voyager is a weird example of Back for the Dead. After appearing in most of the first season, he stopped appearing except in time travel episodes, leading fans to believe he had died off-screen. After 6 seasons of being used as a "Hey look! We're back in the first season. See? There's Carey!" marker, he showed up alive four episodes before the end of the series and got killed off (as a Red Shirt). The writers intended to have a guy the fans know die for the shock value. But the problem was that his lack of appearances outside of time travel episodes made people already think he was dead, so the shock was more "wow, he's still alive?" then "GASP! They killed Carey!" The writer of that episode wanted to kill someone off, and was given the choice of Vorik or Carey. He thought Carey would have more impact, since fans would relate to a human more than a Vulcan. Bad choice. He was obviously unaware of how much fans liked Vorik, and of how fans already thought Carey was dead. Furthermore, rumour has it that Carey's odd treatment was because the writers were for a long time confusing him with Lt. Hogan, who had indeed been killed off in Season 2.

For the first several seasons of How I Met Your Mother, Marshall's father is a minor character who rarely appears. Come the Season 6 premiere, not only do we start seeing him more often, but his role in Marshall's life is bigger — apparently the two of them are very close and Marshall tells him everything. His death at midseason is still a surprise, but only because this show rarely kills characters off. If you start watching Season 6 knowing someone will die, it's easy to guess who.

Played straight with Malcolm Merlyn, who is absent for most of Season 5 (he was busy with Thawne and Darhk) and comes back in the penultimate episode, only to be (apparently) killed in a Heroic Sacrifice/Taking You with Me moment. Ditto for Digger "Captain Boomerang" Harkness, who hasn't been seen since Season 3, and is apparently killed by Merlyn stepping off a landmine in his immediate vicinity.

A strange example from Merlin involving Lancelot. In the two-part opener of series 4, he heroically sacrifices himself by stepping into the veil between the worlds and thus closing the rift that is causing deadly spirits to roam the earth. Later in the same series, Morgana brings him back from the spirit world in order destroy Arthur and Guinevere's impending marriage. Once he's achieved this, she orders him to kill himself. So essentially he dies, is brought back as a well-preserved zombie, and is then killed off again.

Spider-Verse isn't holding back on this trope, killing off the Spider-Men from Marvel 1602, Spider-Man: Reign, Spider-Man Unlimited (and given Slott, like many people, holds the opinion of Unlimited being a sequel to Spider-Man: The Animated Series, this means that show's Spidey is dead, too), Bullet Pointsnote Bruce Banner and Peter Parker having swapped roles, and House of M, as well as the Mary Jane Spider-Woman from Exiles and Twinkies-advertising Spider-Man from Howard the Duck, the Prince of Arachne from Marvel Fairy Tales, the Betty Brant Spider-Girl, Arachnosaur, and the Spidey from Marvel vs. Capcom. The Amazing Friends version of Iceman and Firestar, the Unlimited versions of the Knights of Wundagore, as well as Mayday Parker's parents are also dead.

The Bourne Series: Marie Kreutz dying in the beginning of The Bourne Supremacy is an interesting subversion in the fact that it happens so early in the film and while there's some warning, still happens at a point when you think the character's safe.
Albert Hirsh from The Bourne Ultimatum appears again briefly in The Bourne Legacy only for his character to be given a poison-induced heart attack offscreen.
An egregious example comes in the form of Nicky Parsons in Jason Bourne. The way the character was presented in the advertising and shown to not be given much to do alerted fans almost immediately that she was gonna die fairly early and without fail, that's what happened.

Played with in regards to Sara — it's believed since the pilot that she's been dead since the Queen's Gambit sank, only to turn out to be alive and well in Season 2, during which she's an important secondary character. At the end of the season, she leaves town, only to return midway through the Season 3 premiere... and is killed in the closing moments. Heavy fan backlash resulted in her getting brought back to life using the Lazarus Pits a season later (with John Constantine helping to recover her soul), and she’s currently in charge of a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits gallivanting across space/time.

Star Trek: The Next Generation gave Tasha Yar a pretty crummy death in Season 1's "Skin of Evil". The character returned in the alternate timeline episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" to die in a Heroic Sacrifice, which would reset the timeline to the one in which she was dead anyways. She actually survived the intended Heroic Sacrifice and had a Half-Human Hybrid daughter Sela with a Romulan before being executed for trying to escape. Sela surfaced as a villain and looked just like Mom, other than being half-Romulan.
