'This Is Us': 7 Things to Know About the Season 2 Finale

This Is Us season 2 finale

Like any soap with this many moving parts, "This Is Us" is engaged in a delicate balancing act, one where each moment of triumph or happiness by necessity brings with it, or is quickly followed by, a new setback or hurdle. Kate is second-guessing her relationship after Toby forgets her dad's old shirt. That's partly because Kevin spent most of the non-exhaling portion of it talking about his recovery from addiction, but also because the moment seemed created to serve a larger goal: to signal to the This Is Us audience that this period of the series, which has been so focused on continuing to grapple with the impact of Jack Pearson's death, is about to embark on a new chapter.

Hannah Zeile said Tuesday's Season Two finale will leave viewers crying happy tears. The season finale of "This Is Us" airs tonight.

"I can't tell you who the 'her" is, but we'll be definitely following up on it in season three, ' Berger said. Even though bad things happened to the Pearsons, the show was gentle enough in spirit to make it seem like everything eventually would be okay. Of course, Toby defends Kate and tells them they can stay or go, but either way he's marrying Kate.

We never even fully realized it, but Kate has been living in Rebecca's shadow in even more ways that we realized. She tells him she's not ready, and he says he's not ready either. I admire it for acknowledging that.

There was no sophomore jinx for "This Is Us", which capped a second season punctuated by its post-Super Bowl episode with a strong, emotional finale that simultaneously managed to look back while cleverly planting the seeds for what lies ahead.

Season finales are where shows wrap up storylines and introduce new ones. It would make sense for it to be Deja that they were referencing, as her aforementioned violent turn could certainly serve as Exhibit A. "It was such a showcase for Mandy, because of the high-level degree of difficulty stuff she was having to do in those episodes as the whole country was watching". During Randall's toast, "The Wedding" teases next season with a time jump focusing on a year later. Images then suggested where some of our characters actually would be in roughly 365 days.

"It's pretty hilarious honestly because every time I would be interviewed, the first question always would be, 'How did Jack die?' And I would just be so silent because I felt like if I made a joke like, 'A polar bear attack!' it was going to be taken somewhere", Zeile said.

The episode ended with the glimpse into the future, which we're recapping below.

"In true [creator] Dan Fogelman [fashion], as well as the rest of our writers - we have the most fantastic writers on our crew - they have built this lovely idea of giving the audience an aged version of Jack", Ventimiglia said before the This Is Us Season 2 finale. "I'm not ready", Tess replies, shaking her head. Maybe she committed a terrible crime that they haven't been able to come to grips with.

Deja was seen smashing the windshield of Randall's auto during the wedding. Or is Annie the one dealing with some sort of dire circumstance? And now, just a month after fans finally got the full lowdown on Jack's death, the series has shoved someone else into the mystery box. All we know is that it seems like another worst-case scenario will come true.

Okay, we were half-right. It's not comfort food TV anymore. If someone Randall and Tess care for end up behind bars, they could feel somewhat responsible and that could be weighing on them.
