Chloe BBC ending explained – what happened in Chloe Episode 6?

From the moment the trailer for the BBC and Amazon Prime show Chloe landed, it was clear that viewers had to prepare for a dark journey of deception and betrayal. While some viewers are still facing an agonizing wait until Episode 6 of Chloe airs on TV, others have probably already watched the series as a catch-up. This probably left many people hoping to see Chloe BBC’s ending explained after it ended in a typically dramatic style.

Thriller fans who loved the twists and turns of The Tourist ending and The Teacher may have quickly realized that Chloe and Elliot’s marriage was far from perfect, despite how it was portrayed on Instagram. And in the end, we know how bad things went, as it’s revealed that Elliot was controlling his wife, separating her from Livia, and leaving Chloe desperate to escape.

It turns out that Chloe was secretly taking birth control to avoid conceiving Elliot’s child and had escaped Elliot’s work drinks. But she made a tragic oversight by leaving the key to the static caravan she had acquired on the bottom along with the cash-filled box she had withdrawn on her husband’s behalf.

Not having enough money to get to the trailer, she went to her parents when Elliot extorted her location from her mother. On the last night of Chloe’s life, she had tried to escape, with her mother and Elliot claiming that she had fallen. Whether or not he was directly involved in this isn’t entirely clear, but her husband’s behavior certainly got her there.

In Chloe’s biting finale, Becky tries to leave Elliot with his stuff, only to confront him after finding out he’s locked the front door. Demanding an explanation from his former girlfriend, Becky denies she owes him anything, but Elliot won’t be swayed by bitter accusations. He suggests that Becky was back in his late wife’s life, trying to convince her to leave him (which she probably would have done).

Becky remains firm saying, “She wanted to leave you because you made her feel small. And helpless. And scared”, before telling her that when it comes to being loved by her “at least [she doesn’t] they have to be chased off a cliff”.

It’s safe to say that Elliot doesn’t react well to this and for a moment viewers might worry that Becky is about to meet a terrifying end like her old friend. In the end, she leaves in her car, with him chasing her down the driveway.

And he’s not about to get off so easily as Becky creates a new post on Chloe’s Instagram profile sharing audio of him yelling at her after she made her accusations. Livia and Becky continue to talk and it looks like Elliot is facing serious repercussions after the video as the two women watch Chloe’s cash register and her practice attempt to forge Elliot’s signature to withdraw the money.

Becky ended the show knowing that Chloe had tried to reach out to her old friend. Chloe’s letter expressing regret that they ever drifted apart after attending separate schools makes Becky realize why she called her that day.

Is Chloé inspired by a true story?

With so many thrillers, including Landscapers and The Manhunt The Night Stalker based on true cases, it’s all too easy to wonder if Chloe is based on a true story. Luckily for anyone worried after the truth about what happened to Chloe Fairbourne on the show, the BBC and Amazon Prime Video series is actually revealed. fictional.

Chloe is writer Alice Seabright’s first series for the BBC, though she’s perhaps best known for her brilliant work on Netflix’s hit Sex Education. She was joined on Chloe by co-writers Kayleigh Llewellyn, Poppy Cogan and Bolu Babalola.

While the focus on social media and the finale reveal that Chloe and Elliot’s relationship was abusive certainly reflect powerful real-life issues, they’re not directly based on specific events. Given the cast’s performances and Chloe’s believable themes, it’s no surprise some might have thought it was based on a true story.

Speaking to the BBC after the casting announcement, Alice revealed: “All of these characters have been a dream to write, and now it feels like they’ve found their kindred spirits in our incredible cast. I can’t wait to start bringing the series to life with them, and with our wonderful crew.”
