In the end, we assume the parents were killed. We have a good guess that the psychologist will probably be killed too.
Explanation of #1: I think the strongest hint the author gave about the parents being killed at the end of the story was when George and Lydia (the parents) found objects that belonged to them—a wallet and a scarf—covered in blood, lying in the nursery. This was the moment in the story where, as they were afraid of in #3, the nursery was coming to life. This set us up as readers to assume if the nursery could produce physical objects, then it was possible that anyone who went in there might be in danger.
