A happy ending for a romantic couple in a soap opera
- it refers to walking off into a sunset together.
A sunset ending usually means the couple involved leaves the show, as soaps tend to create pointless conflicts for anyone happy in a relationship for longer than five minutes. The only way to stay happy is to leave for good - preferably in a dramatic, romantic, hopelessly happy, sunset ending.
