“Narrowly defined, a cliffhanger is a climax cracked in half: the bomb ticks, the screen goes black, a lady wriggles on train tracks—will anyone save her Italics on a black screen: “To be continued…” More broadly, it’s any strong dose of “what happens next,” the question that hovers in the black space between episodes.” —Emily Nussbaum, “The Curious Staying Power of the Cliffhanger,” The New Yorker, July 2012
