What happened at the end of Ratched?

The suspenseful series tells the story of Mildred Ratched from 1947 until 1950, and it documents her time as an asylum nurse.

At the start of the series she shows some narcissistic traits as she battles to make her way up the ranks to become head nurse.

She manipulates Dr Richard Hanover (Jon Jon Briones) into giving her a job and she works with him on some disturbing experiments, which he believed would 'cure' people of their mental health conditions.

Killer Edmund Tolleson was brought into the psychiatric hospital and he was destined to face the death penalty as punishment for the multiple murders.

He had killed a number of priests, including one whom he claimed had raped his mother when he was younger.

Fans were curious to know why nurse Ratched was so infatuated with Edmund, and it later transpired the pair were siblings.

They had been orphans who had been placed with the same foster family, but they both suffered years of abuse as children.

Wanting to make sure they stuck together, their social worker forged paperwork to say they were biological siblings, and they referred to each other as 'brother' and 'sister'.

Nurse Ratched had wanted to pay her brother back as he had saved them from a particularly evil foster family, and she hoped to help him escape prison.

However Edmund's relationship with nurse Dolly (Alice Englert) got in the way and her plan to free him went downhill.
