The ending to Grease is one of those puzzling endings that could only fly in a musical rom-com from the seventies so it's no surprise one observant fan wanted to find a logical explanation for the high-flying ending.
Redditor atomicbolt came up with a heartbreaking but intriguing theory that Sandy died on the beach the day she met Danny and the whole movie is her dying thoughts.
While many jumped on board the theory, some fans poked a few holes in it.

If their arguments weren't enough, there's this straight from the director, apparently:
So "Grease fan theory" is trending, implying Sandy or Danny may be dead. I spoke to the director & he assured me this is absolute rubbish.— Anna Klassen (@AnnaJKlassen) September 8, 2016
