When the Official Couple kiss at or very near the ending of the series or film. If the kiss itself isn't the very last shot, it will probably be followed by their wedding, a dance, Riding Into the Sunset, or closing the bedroom door.

Chances are good this will precede any ending narration or title card that says "And they lived Happily Ever After."

Being an Ending Trope, it's a given the examples contain SPOILERS. Consider yourself warned.

Sometimes a sub-trope of Last-Minute Hookup. Not to be confused with Last Kiss.


Examples:

Anime/Manga

Film

 Gray: Bond! What do you think you’re doing?!

Bond: Keeping the British end up, sir.

Literature

Live Action Television

  • In the series finale of Chuck, the last image is of Chuck and Sarah kissing on the beach.

  • The Musical Episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's lampshaded just before it happens with the lyric "The curtains close on a kiss, God knows we can tell the end is near."
  • In Scrubs's Season 8 finale (which was supposed to be the Grand Finale, but wasn't), the last image J.D. sees on the "Goodbye" sign is of him and Elliot kissing.
  • The end of season four of Merlin more or less ends on the image of Arthur and Guinevere kissing as he crowns her Queen of Camelot (though there is a brief Sequel Hook afterwards involving Morgana in the forest).

  • The Playstation version of Chrono Trigger added a movie of Crono's and Marle's marriage to the standard ending. The same movie also shows Kino proposing to Ayla and Frog (in his human form) being knighted.
  • The ending of the Witch Hunt DLC for Dragon Age can be the player character and Morrigan embracing before stepping off into the unknown.
