(Whether or not it’s in their sleep remains to be seen.). In a beautiful, quiet sequence, we watch them inhale and exhale, one by one. He shares his recent conversation with Kate, who told him, “If you don’t allow yourself to grieve Dad’s death, it will be like taking a giant breath in and just holding it there for the rest of your life.” He then asks each Pearson — his two siblings, his mother, and himself — to take that deep breath and let go, as Kate promised she’d do hours earlier. But Randall has learned what’s out of his control. Kevin is dancing with Madison, an unnerving but thankfully misleading (more on that in a minute) sign. Entertainment Weekly may receive compensation for some links to products and services on this website. 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.” The camera seems fixated on Kate through these sequences, and we learn, midway through the episode, that they’re from her dreams — dreams that she’s had every night over the past few weeks, of the moment that was destined yet never came to be. She arrives at Artisanal Scoops — the ice cream place that apparently replaced Kate’s beloved Frenchie’s, the parlor she used to frequent with her father. But what it did do — and do well — was reaffirm why we care about Jack (and Rebecca) in the first place. We knew This Is Us was going to end its second season on a wedding. One day, a long time from now, you’re going to meet someone who’s better than me.” He said he’d walk her down the aisle, and maybe cry a little, on her wedding day — a painful but beautiful memory that informs why this has been such a specifically emotional experience for Kate. We arrive at the wedding party, the jovial images mirroring those of the Jack-and-Rebecca 40th fantasy. But where the marriage ceremony typically initiates a new beginning — a celebration of a new union — in this case the focus was on the end of a long, difficult chapter. The day before the wedding, his parents had expressed worry about his marrying Kate, saying it seemed like he was walking on eggshells around her to keep her sane. (Recap continues on page 2). For his toast, Kevin puts things in perspective and guides his family out of this long, difficult chapter and toward the next one. 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. After, Kevin shares how happy he is for Kate and hands the mic over to Randall, who offers an important sentiment: You can’t control what the future will bring, but you can control who you experience it with. “You look just like your father,” she’d said to Deja, referencing Randall.

They met at the wedding and apparently hit it off; in this snippet of the future, on an airplane, we see them intimate and comfortable with one another. They try to get Kate to calm down while they do damage control, but Toby informs them, while picking up his separated (and bickering) parents (Dan Lauria and Wendie Malick) from the airport, that he has indeed forgotten Jack’s old shirt. This Is Us aired its fall finale tonight, November 19, so of course there was going to be a shocking twist during the last five minutes. Kate exits the shop, again for an unknown destination, leaving the rest of her family to wait anxiously back at the cabin. And Randall and Kevin rush to Artisanal Scoops, where they’ve just missed Kate, and stay on her tail. Randall’s darkest fear is, to put it mildly, upsetting for Kevin. 10 funny mockumentaries to remind us about the absurdity of life, Family-friendly Halloween films for boos big and small. While “The Wedding” doesn’t put an end to their grieving (it’s hardly so simple) it does guide them into a new phase of mourning, one where each family member has a chance to let go and take a breath. “That’s not really how it works,” he said to her after she asked if he’d marry her one day. We see that Kevin, in the future, is on a plane to Vietnam with Zoey — of all people — by his side. Kate and the Pearsons learn to let go in a tender and wise season finale. She’s surrounded by memories, and rather than brush them away, she’s actualizing them: Jack’s urn is set to be placed beside the guestbook, she’s going to pin his old Daytona Beach shirt to her dress for her “something old,” and she’s having the wedding at the cabin where some of her fondest family moments took place. Randall, meanwhile, is trying to do patchwork. We see that Toby, in the future, will become bed-ridden and cripplingly depressed. It’s a familiar spot, too: a place she once found comfort in as a girl, with her dad by her side. “I’ve been holding on to that feeling for a really long time now — that feeling of you next to me,” she says. This Is Us, naturally, uses the idea to jump ahead in time for the finale’s final moments, both to tease what’s in store next season but also to reflect on Randall’s point — that things will change for better or worse, new people will enter your orbit while others exit, and life goes on.

Those ice cream trips have been a particularly dominant memory all season for Kate, so it’s quietly devastating when she learns the place has changed hands, and that Jack’s favorite flavor, banana pudding, is no more. Her damage isn’t magically going away — it may even be, as Randall and Beth so feared, one of those worst-case scenarios. (We’re also reminded of Jack’s military service, sure to be built out next season.). They’re set to begin the adoption process but are scared about what the future holds. It’s an imagined version of the present where Jack and Rebecca are renewing their vows for their 40th wedding anniversary. He and Kevin have laid out some replacement options for Jack’s T-shirt, including the old family baseball bat, but Kate assures them she has a better plan, racing out on an unspecified mission right after her mother arrives. This Is Us recap: Examining the roots of 'The Dinner(s) and the Date'. Kate and Toby’s impending marriage has been shadowed all year long by Jack Pearson’s death; the show has prioritized it narratively and emotionally. She’s still in it for Toby, of course — even gifting him the bow tie Leslie Nielsen wore in Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult the day before the wedding — but when it becomes clear that Toby forgot to bring Jack’s shirt across the country, she’s thrown for a loop. And we see that Randall, in the future far more years in advance, is with Tess, who’s working as a social worker. to hate the people who love you.”) And Rebecca and Miguel are happily dancing in the room, surrounded by love. I’ve got to let go a little now.” She opens the urn, and while we don’t see her scatter the ashes, she does tell Randall and Kevin — who find her at the location — that she “did it.” “Maybe we didn’t fail her after all,” Randall says, as the Big Three head back to the cabin. Rebecca keeps calling her daughter but it’s going straight to voicemail. Of course, there’s a reason for this: Kate hasn’t been able to fully move on from it, nor has the rest of her family. Kevin offers up his own nightmare: that Kate returns, goes to live with Kevin, and they never find love, left to live as “a creepy pair of twins that grows old together.” Randall compliments his gameplay; the two then suffer through the notion that they didn’t protect their sister, before mutually agreeing that playing the game wasn’t exactly helpful for either of them.
