* At the end of ''Film/ForceTenFromNavarone'', the Force Ten team has successfully destroyed the bridge that the Germans needed to assault the partisan base. Unfortunately, that leaves them on the German side of a now-uncrossable river, with all their allies on the other side of the river. They're a long way from Allied territory, and they used up all their gear during the mission. So now what?

They're a long way from also behind enemy lines in the middle of Yugoslavia, with the nearest Allied territory, front being in northern Italy, and they used up all their gear during the mission. So now what?

* In ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' series, there is literally a planet called "Now What?", named after the first words spoken by the astronauts after claiming the planet as their civilisation.

* For ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' fans, one of the most fascinating things about the series is that it contains so ''many'' of these events, but always takes up the challenge to show what comes next. Two of these come from the "three-shows-in-one" nature of the series, of course, but one of the biggest NowWhat moments happens two thirds of the way through the original ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' segment. The show is really worth watching to learn how to write without succumbing to the easy way out (that is, just declaring "The End"), and to always address the ''consequences'' of the events you have written.

* In ''VideoGame/Klonoa2LunateasVeil'', it's strongly hinted that Klonoa has divine blood and that his forced wanderings are serving some greater purpose. The game ends just as he's being drawn out of Lunatea. Namco never released another ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}'' game.

May overlap with LonelyAtTheTop. Not to be confused with the WhatNowEnding or AndThenWhat. See also, PostScriptSeason.

So the series ended with the {{Masquerade}} being lifted, or the [[LastMinuteHookUp couple getting together in the last five seconds of the show]] or otherwise the characters one single goal they ever wanted has been fulfilled. The ramifications of this are staggering, after all, how on Earth can the writers depict the consequences?

Solution: They don't. Everyone either lives HappilyEverAfter or has a DownerEnding; but it's not the writer's problem anymore.

* ''[[{{Film/MelodySWALK}} Melody]] [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067418/ (1971)]]'' ends with Daniel Latimer and Melody Perkins escaping from the adults' raid on their wedding and cranking themselves down the railroad track on a trolley. However, this "man" and his "wife" are only ten years old! No government is going to recognize their marriage legally. They barely even know anything about kissing, let alone sex. So what kind of honeymoon are they going to have? [[FigureItOutYourself Good question.]]

* ''{{Film/Serenity}}'' saw two main characters and many recurring characters being killed off, the EvilEmpire exposed, and the BigBad of the movie emasculated. With no further motivation, the characters simply head out into the Great Whatever.
