While this trope normally applies to lovers, it can also apply to family members and friends as well. Compare DramaBombFinale.

** It's a real head-scratcher, because we never find out where he went or what he did while there, or what everyone else has been up to while he's gone. It looked like they were going to ''try'' to do a sequel, but for some reason never did, so it's just a CliffHanger.

* ''Freebird'' by Lynyrd Skynyrd describes a man who wants to leave his partner [[GoingToSeeTheElephant so he can travel the world]]. It is most notable for its opening line being grammatically wrong ("If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?" should be "''will'' you still remember me", or alternately it should be "if I ''left'' here tomorrow"), and for having a sweet guitar solo at the end.

* Lily attempted this on ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': When she was offered an art fellowship in San Francisco, she took it because she regretted not having followed her dream of becoming an artist and wanted to find out who she was without Marshall, as the two had been practically inseparable since their first week of college. She doesn't really want to break up, but Marshall told her [[CareerVersusMan she had to choose]], since he refused to wait for her. When she gets back, it becomes a BreakUpToMakeUp scenario for them both, once Marshall realized a break was good for them, telling her they should continue to figure out who they are without each other, and initially rejecting her when she tried to make up.

It's obvious he [[{{AnguishedDeclarationOfLove}} never stopped loving her]], but needed to sort himself out before committing. Sure enough when he returns, he's a [[{{SelfMadeMan}} successful author and publisher]]. Its just a pity he didn't let her in on the plan before...

* In ''Theatre/NextToNormal'', Dan has coped with Diana's bipolar disorder for over a decade and, recently, while struggling with his own depression. As the play ends, Diana decides she needs to cope on her own (oddly enough, by running off to her parents' house...) and leaves Dan behind with the farewell gift of their dead son's spectre. Needless to say, he isn't too happy about this, but both sides are seen as sympathetic.
