This Is Us finale recap: 'The Wedding'

This Is Us finale recap: 'The Wedding'

He might even imagine Kate finding inspiration to sing again, years after she abandoned her dream. She has one more chat and tells him that she knows Toby is ideal for her and that he'd probably agree.

Starring: Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and more.

Season 2 of This Is Us has done extremely well and maintained its title as one of the best shows on primetime television. Or Randall finding his biological dad.

In the finale, Beth and Randall play a game of "worst case scenario" and there's one conversation they share that may be a serious case of foreshadowing.

Some fans think that the "her" that they are going to see could be Beth in the grave, Deja in jail, or someone in the hospital. Rebecca arrives. Kate kisses her and then tells everyone she has to go run an errand. Kate comes in to say that the doctor wants to readjust Toby's meds but he doesn't even move to acknowledge that his wife is speaking to him. Back in November, Chrissy Metz told ET that she and the writers "talk about it" a lot.

Randall has other things going on: He's still reeling from the dramatic turn of events involving Deja from last week's episode; she's now irritable and closed off, an obvious result of her mother's official decision to "terminate all parental rights" and leave her in Randall and Beth's care. Beth's cousin, Zoe, is photographing the wedding. It goes without saying that spoilers are in this post, so beware of reading! "I think as much as the importance is on Jack's death, (future storylines) are also going to be about them coping as a family..."

What Does the Future Hold? Because we were shooting it at the family cabin, I was like, 'Oh dear, we can't have such a long train because it's dirty out there!' So we did have a bit of a train and they did something really attractive where they bustled the train a bit, and ended up shortening it, but the dress was actually really heavy because it's beaded and handmade and couture, literally hand made. It's a bit of a stretch, but one theory floating around is the revelation that that's actually not Jack with Rebecca, but his younger brother, Nicky, previously thought to have died in the Vietnam War. So before we toast Toby and Kate, before we clink our glasses, I think that the four of us should release that breath together. Among the awful options put on the table: Deja gets Tess to resent Randall and Beth, Deja goes to jail, Deja kills Randall and Beth. He's telling her that eventually she has to see her. This should promise a lighter and brighter future for her, as she fully commits herself to the new love of her life, the man her father said would be better than him.

So curl up with a glass of wine and snuggle up under the covers as we dissect just what those season-ending cliffhangers mean for our favorite TV family. Season two didn't have anything comparable, and the choices for the big arcs tended to be darker: Kevin hits bottom and goes to rehab, Deja's comings and goings work a number on Randall and Beth's heart, etc. Attempts to expand our understanding of some of the less-beloved characters didn't always work: I came out of the all-Kevin spotlight episode feeling less sympathy towards him, rather than more. Not only did we get to see a lot of the past and what has shaped the lives of the Big Three, but we also got to glimpse into the future of the Pearsons.

Kate calls Rebecca from the vehicle. At one point during the finale, I firmly believed they should change the name of this show from This Is Us to This Is Urn. These are the five times we cried during the final episode of This Is Us Season 2! "I think she is now really emotionally prepared to be that person for him".

Toby's parents stop by his room and reveal their concerns about Kate. Do you feel that season two showed more of Kate's inner-life? Randall's was a return to the aforementioned future with Tess as a social worker. An official premiere date for season three hasn't been set, but we already have an idea of what's to come.
