Nora adds that a future relationship of some sort would only be possible if “the miracle of miracles” were to happen—if they both change is such a way that they could have a real marriage. She leaves. Sinking down into a chair with his hand in his face, Torvald moans her name. He then looks up and observes how empty the room has become without her. The play ends with the hope of the “miracle of miracles” crossing Torvald’s mind and with the sound of the street door slamming. At the end of the play, Nora feels emancipated from her marriage rather than trapped in her marriage.
