'This Is Us' Season 2 Finale Spoilers - Flash Forwards Explained

What the heck happened?! And while not all of the monologues hit their mark - Deja's speech last week about how we're all fundamentally the same because we all sleep wasn't almost as profound as intended - there were many times throughout this season where my questions about why I continued to watch the show were answered by a lovely bit of oratory delivered by Sterling K. Brown, Mandy Moore, or one of their co-stars. But life is cruel and unfair sometimes. 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.

"In true [creator] Dan Fogelman [fashion], as well as the rest of our writers - we have the most wonderful writers on our crew - they have built this handsome idea of giving the audience an aged version of Jack", Ventimiglia said before the This Is Us Season 2 finale.

It's up to Randall and Kevin - the designated wedding planners - to get things back on track. Earlier in the episode, there was a beat when we thought he could potentially hook up with Kate's maid of honor Madison (Caitlin Thompson). But Toby defends his love for Kate, and eventually they back off. Randall, meanwhile, is trying to do patchwork.

Rebecca is stressing over what to wear to the wedding. "It sort of makes you wistful for what could have been", she explained. "I think she is now really emotionally prepared to be that person for him. He's the one that she lost, and I'm the one that she got stuck with", Rebecca tells Miguel. Will the couple even make it to the "I do's?" It seems so, suggesting her life turned out like the "worst-case scenario" Randall and Beth feared at the top of the episode.

We see that Toby has sunken into a depression and Kate is attending to him while he is in bed. Cousin Zoe tries to ease Deja's anger; like her, she was a teen angry at the world, no thanks to a mother who dumped her at her aunt's house when she was a child. Or does Beth fall ill and wind up on life support as a result of years of worry and stress caused by Deja? "It's a lot, but you can't help but feel like you're in your 70ish years when you're in it", he said. Could it be that Beth will someday perish of the same cancer that took her father? Deja comes around after Zoe's talk.

Beyond that, we can guess that there will probably be some last minute bumps in the road for Toby and Kate. 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.

When Kevin and Randall couldn't find and priceless belongings of their dad's, Kate still needs her something old, and she's really missing her dad.

Yes, that's the culmination of the past two seasons with Toby and knowing that he is the right man for her and that Jack would be so thrilled and so happy to see them so happy. His parents don't want to see Toby get so low again. "They stir all kinds of things up", she says, calming her daughter, who begins to second-guess why Toby isn't in her dreams to begin with. The dream is way it was supposed to be.

The tension between Kate and Rebecca has been a major component of This Is Us Season 2.

Earlier in the episode, Toby's parents mentioned that he went into a similar dark funk when his first wife left him. It's not shown, but does she dump Jack's ashes? Perhaps it was misdirection, and the flash-forward wasn't about Beth at all; perhaps Beth really will die of cancer; perhaps in the future, she's actually suffering from something more complicated, like Alzheimer's.

The episode opens on a wedding - but not Kate's. While it will be hard what comes up, she also knows that she wants to be there for her husband. She's always wanted to be a mother like Rebecca.
