Chloe Viewers Left Fuming Over 'Plot Hole' In Last Night's Finale

*Warning this article contains spoilers*

Viewers of BBC drama Chloe have been left unimpressed by the show's finale and have branded it a "rollercoaster for nothing".

The six-part thriller follows Becky (Erin Doherty), a young woman who compulsively compares her life to the picture-perfect lives she follows on Instagram - specifically that of one woman named Chloe Fairbourne (Poppy Gilbert).

When Chloe dies suddenly, Becky finds herself caught up in the mess, assuming a new identity named Sasha to get to the bottom of it all.

But it appears Becky did little to find out exactly what happened to her childhood pal in the end as Chloe's mum admitted she didn't know if her daughter did jump off the cliff.

In the final episode, we learnt that Chloe had grown to fear her controlling husband Elliott, who had been secretly medicating her, and planned to escape during one of his work events.

However, Chloe accidentally left behind two things crucial to her escape: the key to the static caravan and the box containing the cash she had taken out in Elliott's name.

Without the money to make it to the caravan in a taxi, Chloe was forced to flee to her parents' house and begged them not to reveal her whereabouts to Elliott.

But after a persuasive call from Elliot, her mum disclosed her whereabouts and in a state of panic Chloe escaped from her parents' house.

Going out in search of her, Elliott and her mum claimed they saw Chloe jump as they arrived to the cliff's edge.

Despite her initial claims about seeing her daughter jump, Chloe's mum admitted Becky: "I don't know what I saw."

While it isn't clear if Chloe's mum is telling the truth, one thing is for certain: Elliott played a crucial role in her death.

However, without a proper explanation of how Chloe died or who killed her, viewers were left "confused" with plot and insisted they have been left with "loads of unanswered questions".

One penned on Twitter: "Just finished watching Chloe on #bbc and safe to say I have no idea what happened in the end or mostly throughout loads of unanswered questions. Let down".

"Chloe has to be one of the worst shows I've watched this year. The plot never landed. Just taking us on a rollercoaster for nothing," another fumed.

A third added: "BBC's Chloe is confusing me so much at the moment doesn't help that it's so dark".

"I've been watching Chloe on BBC 1 .. if anyone can explain the plot to me I will make sure you are awarded a bonafide psychology degree with honours," a viewer commented.

While some were annoyed by the finale, overall viewers were impressed with how the series depicted coercive control in relationships and insisted it was "worth the watch".

A fan penned: "Chloe (on BBC iPlayer) really conveys coercive control in relationships and how it manifests differently. So worth the watch."

"Just finished #Chloe on iPlayer.A chilling mystery, bleak, and an uncomfortable insight into coercive control. Stay vigilant," another shared.

A third added: "Omg Chloe series on the BBC! Such a good depiction of covert coercive control. Well done!".

Chloe is available to watch in full on BBC iPlayer while episode 6 will air on Monday on BBC One.
