'This Is Us' Waits To Exhale With A Season Finale 'Wedding'

Asked if the show plans on aging her more, and if we're going to see older iterations of Rebecca, Fogelman said, "Yeah, it's possible". After Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) and Randall anxious at the start of the episode about Deja going down the wrong path, it looks like that's exactly where she's headed.

While Randall, Beth, Tess and Annie enjoy the brief respite from the uncertainty that's about to come to their family and after wondering where Deja has run off to, we see Deja taking a baseball bat and smashing Randall's vehicle. William's return to Randall's life provided enough of one to carry much of the first season, and it eventually reached out to affect Rebecca and Kevin and even Kate and Toby to a degree, so it wasn't just confined to Randall and Beth's corner of the series. Beth's cousin, Zoe, is photographing the wedding. It would also contextualize Jack's potentially telling words to Rebecca, when he says, "Where'd the time go, Bec?"

This Is Us wrapped its second season Tuesday with Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby (Chris Sullivan) exchanging "I dos" at the Pearson family cabin with the whole family present - including patriarch Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), despite the fact that he died two decades ago. But it's the fact that Zoe went through nearly exactly what Deja is dealing with that makes her instrumental in Deja's recovery from being abandoned by her mother.

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. "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..." He toasts about not knowing what the future holds or being able to control it but being able to control who you spend it with.

- On the presumed upside, Kevin (Justin Hartley) is flying to Vietnam with his new girlfriend, Beth's cousin Zoe (Melanie Liburd). In the closing moments, the episode shares a glimpse of a bleak future. In response, Deja talks back to Beth and Randall and ultimately attacks Randall's auto in a fit of resentment. Tonight was about Kate and Toby's wedding and featured a notable jump ahead from last week's Deja-centric episode. Viewers briefly saw an older Randall and grown-up Tess (Eris Baker). But rather than rail against her mother, she now sees her as inspiration, someone to hopefully become in her own way. Miguel is sweet and reminds her that at least she's not him. Perhaps after she takes the bat to the vehicle, they send her away or something - or maybe Tess and Randall are talking about someone else completely. They both talk about how they may have failed Kate as they drive looking for her.

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. These visions play out throughout the episode's first half: everyone watching the two lovebirds, as entranced with each other as they ever were, listening to their stories about things like Big Three Homes and Rebecca's encore performance of "Moonshadow".

I look forward to finding out what happens during the next year of the Pearsons' lives.

Kate calls Rebecca from the auto. "She would never hurt me!" I trust the writers and Dan completely so wherever she's headed I know that it's going to be exciting and interesting and unconventional. This Is Us co-showrunner Isaac Aptaker says, "We love all three of them, so I certainly hope [we'll see them again]". These are the five times we cried during the final episode of This Is Us Season 2! Are you surprised that Kate is able to "let go" of Jack and make room for Toby? "You are not in my way", Kate says. Who do you think Randall and Tess are talking about in the future?

Bear with us. We know we've seen Jack's body lying in the hospital - well, a blurry image from afar of Jack's body. For the most part, that change was for the better because, while This Is Us can't be accused of trafficking in realism, it was a little more real in the way it handled issues such as racism, pregnancy, and the process of fostering a child.
