i was watching "the searchers" starring John Wayne and he said : " in the end we will find them". should it be "in the end" or "at the end"??
what about: "at the end of the day" is it correct? or should it be "in the end of the day"?
Just to elaborate, if you want to describe what happened in the movie, you'd say,
At the end of the movie, they found him.That's because the movie has a set length. You can identify when it starts and ends. Same thing with "at the end of the night", "at the end of your life", "at the end of the work day", etc.
When the character says, "In the end we'll find him," you can replace "In the end" with "Eventually".
That would be very similar, yes.
