    In the end = finally [ adverb phrase of time]

    e.g. In the end [ =Finally] they agreed on the plan...

    At the end -adverb phrase of location/place

    e.g. at the end of the book , at the end of the street

    So you can say (about a story in a book) 'In the end [Finally], it turns out that they were brother and sister, but we only find out right at the end of the book.'
