In the season finale, Dan Fogelman & Co. explored the theme of letting go. It was Kate (Chrissy Metz)’s wedding day, and while she and brothers Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) prepared for the nuptials, Kate couldn’t help but think back to a dream she’d been having for weeks — one that showed the audience what an alternate timeline would look like had Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) never died. In the bride-to-be’s slumber, she saw her parents celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony. And in her dreams, everyone was there — everyone except fianc├â┬⌐ Toby (Chris Sullivan). This realization comes up during conversation with Pearson matriarch Rebecca (Mandy Moore), and Kate finally comes to term with something that’s been in between her and Tobias for a while. She has to let go of her guilt over her father’s death if she’s ever going to make room for a husband. So she goes to a special spot near the wedding venue (the family cabin) and releases the remainder of Jack’s ashes. Now she’s ready.

But it wasn’t all about the wedding. Fans also watched as Deja (Lyric Ross) suffered a psychological breakdown during the reception, lashing out at her life’s traumas by taking a bat to beat what appears to be Randall’s car. This was a hard blow to take as the previous episode gave hope into Deja’s situation. Still, there was more to wonder about. In a flash-forward, we see that Kevin will get cozy with Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson)’s cousin as they head to Vietnam with a photo of Army Jack in hand, Toby will suffer from an illness as he lies sadly in bed while Kate discusses new medication (depression?), and Sterling and Tess will be anxious about going to see a mysterious “her.” Whoever this “her” is, it seems she’s in trouble — or worse. It would be easy to assume this woman is Deja, but some fear it’s actually Beth.

A lot to think about and wait for!!
