By the end, seven years have passed and Chloe has since moved on from her life. She's married, had children and reunited with her birth parents - but it dones't end there. 

Chloe, who still visits Diane in hospital every month to give her medication, sits down beside her mother's hospital bed in a tense scene.

The daughter says "I love you, mom. Now, open wide", only to feed her the exact same green pills that Diane had been feeding her throughout her life. It seems Chloe now holds the power and keeping her mother sick as an act of revenge for years of abuse.
