The day before the wedding, after Kate gives Toby the bowtie that Leslie Nielsen wore in Naked Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult as a wedding present, their kiss is interrupted by Kevin (Justin Hartley) who's playing wedding planner.
"It was layered with young Kate and current Kate and their relationship or what the relationship could have been", Metz says, "down to what he would look like at this age and all of those things that everyone who has lost a loved one thinks about - the memories that could have been and things that could have been shared". It wasn't without a few tears, and to be honest, I think I am still digesting last night's episode - there was a lot going on!
Fans have wondered for a while now if Beth might be marked for death, via Crock-Pot or other means.
Cut to a series of flash-forwards featuring Kevin and his new girlfriend, Zoe (!), traveling to where Jack was stationed in Vietnam, Kate suggesting bedridden Toby make a doctor's appointment and an older Randall telling grown-up Tess it's time to "go see her".
Beth dying would certainly qualify as that. The writers focus far less on Kate and how the problems in her life affect her, and most of Kate's development happens through Toby and his development.More news: Dolphins fail to find trade, will release Ndamukong Suh
OK, I think it is time for us to all release a deep breath, seeing as we have to wait for the fall to find out what the heck is happening with the Pearsons.
Series creator Dan Fogelman has played with time on the show from the get-go, but the foreshadowing regarding the future has almost felt like a "Lost"-like wrinkle, bringing additional dimension to the characters and what's happening in the present".
Kevin has gone through his fair share of ups and downs in his career and personal life over the past two seasons, and in brief glimpses of the near future, the former Man-ny star seems to have it all together. But depending on this maneuver also comes with a cost: hinging on endless cliffhangers and mini-mysteries can undercut the heart of the series, which can and should ultimately be what keeps viewers coming back. But as we saw tonight, he was very much a part of Kate's wedding, and he's a part of every step these characters take for as long as the show is on. I've been holding onto that feeling for a really long time now.
Just as expected, we were left crying our eyes out at the powerful This Is Us Season 2 finale.

There's plenty of emotional resonance and suspense in This Is Us.
That being said, Sullivan still has high hopes for Toby and Kate's future - as parents. By the time both parties were clearly on board to proceed with the wedding, the heartbreaking possibility of their nuptials falling apart made it all the more meaningful.
"We have big cliffhanger moments", Aptaker continued.
The poor girl has been through so much in her life, and all we know is that at some point Toby is going to have to adjust his meds. Deja has understandably been acting out after her mother abandoned her at the Pearson household. It's time This Is Us let it speak for itself. This series has done a attractive job of laying that foundation already-and unlike Randall's foray into construction, this work is reliable.More news: More Countries May Be Exempted From Steel And Aluminum Tariffs
