What the heck is this description trying to say? Oh, and the description is a stub.

It is the reverse of Where Are They Now? Epilogue but for one episode, like where the characters were.

It's when the last scene of an episode or series shows when all the relevant characters were at the event that precipitated the events of the episode or series.

A special case of Anachronic Order and/or Flashback.

As an Ending Trope, Spoilers ahead may be unmarked. Beware.

Examples of Where They Were include:

Film[edit | hide | hide all]

  • There is a montage to "Mad World" in second-to-last scene of Donnie Darko, in which we see many characters as they were before the plot took off. Or... where they are now, depending on how one interprets the whole time-travel thing.

Live Action Television[edit | hide]
