Specifically: Future Beth seems to be in danger, and the issue of what, exactly, will happen to her might replace "how did Jack die?" as the central question driving the series. "There are definitely a few cliffhangers, not ones you necessarily see happening or from characters you wouldn't see coming from before this episode", star Mandy Moore (Rebecca) told Deadline at SXSW.
The following contains spoilers about the "This Is Us" Season 2 finale. As adults, Jack's children are still rocked by their father's death, and it's squarely haunting Kate prior to her nuptials. "I think [she'll want] an intimate [wedding] with people she really cares about and loves. We have some big plans in how we play with time, but Mandy has such a classic face and look that strangely it allows for aging in a really interesting way because she would always remain classically handsome in a way that's not typical or normal". "It's going to be a well-told season next year", he said. Within the latter half of this season alone, This Is Us gave us a heartbreaking miscarriage; an almost devastating vehicle accident that resulted in a DUI; a fire that nearly killed Jack Pearson, then didn't, but sort of did because he died of a heart attack afterward, all on Super Bowl Sunday; an eviction; and a wedding day that should have been focused on celebrating Toby and Kate but instead was dominated by the heavy grief and guilt Kate has been carrying for two decades with regard to her father's death.
In fact, during Randall's speech at the wedding, we got three glimpses into the future, one for each of the Big 3. Because this is probably not a one-off (nothing on this show is) and because the series devoted an entire episode to Deja (Lyric Ross), some clever fans are wondering if the table is being set for a new "Big Three" with Tess, her sister Annie (Faithe Herman) and Deja.
It wasn't clear who the "her" they are referring to is, but it's obvious that whatever happens to this person is not good.
While her brothers thought she was skipping out on her wedding, Kate was doing anything but. This is a situation where Kate may have to take the lead on that front, ' Berger said.
As Randall made his own unconventional wedding toast about the inability to control the future, he noted that no one at the wedding knew where they would be a year from now. The bad news? It looks like the Pearson family's future is headed into some dark places. Deja has understandably been acting out after her mother abandoned her at the Pearson household. As we've seen in countless flashbacks, Miguel has always loved Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), Rebecca and the kids. Could it be that Beth will someday perish of the same cancer that took her father?
- On the presumed upside, Kevin (Justin Hartley) is flying to Vietnam with his new girlfriend, Beth's cousin Zoe (Melanie Liburd). "I feel like the moment she heard her mom say to the judge that she wanted to terminate all parental rights, something switched in her", Beth tells Randall earlier tonight regarding Deja's massive mood swing.
Kate and Toby successfully make it down the aisle despite all of the drama swirling around them. Do you think Toby's parents are right about Kate being unstable? Because this is TV and especially because it's "This Is Us", don't expect it to go the way you think. "In many ways, Jack might be the character we still have the most to learn about, because he's kept so many secrets in this period before we've really know him", he said.
Season 2 of This Is Us has done extremely well and maintained its title as one of the best shows on primetime television. Want more news? Like our This Is Us Facebook page.
