Warning: There are spoilers ahead for the season two finale of “This Is Us.”
Now that the mystery of Jack Pearson’s death is long behind us, what else can “This Is Us” do to pull at fan’s heartstrings heading into season three?
Instead of flashbacks, Tuesday’s “This Is Us” finale teased a series of small, perplexing flash-forwards. Several appeared to be about a year in the future and another with Randall may be as far as a decade down the line.
From a somber looking Toby to a traveling Kevin, we have a lot of questions and we’re sure you do too. While we’re waiting for the show to return in fall 2018, let’s break down every question we have from the flash-forward scenes teased on the season two finale.
What is going on with Toby?
Toby is looking quite unlike his chipper self.
Kate walks in on Toby curled up in bed and tells him that the doctor wants to see him to discuss adjusting his medication. Our best guess is that he may have slipped into a depression.

Who are they talking about? The women in their life can refer to Tess’ sister, Annie, her foster sister, Deja, or her mother Beth. The scene could also be talking about Randall’s sister Kate or his mother, Rebecca.
However, a lot of fans think that something may happen to Beth in the future. After future Tess and Randall speak the scene cuts to Beth.
And the way Randall says “It’s time to go see her” makes it sound like someone is either in a hospital bed gravely ill or injured or has died.
Who is the woman Kevin is with?
As Randall says that we don’t know where we’ll be in a year from now, we see Kevin on a plane to Vietnam with a woman who may or may not be his girlfriend. She’s resting her head on him and he gives her a gentle kiss on the head.
But who is she?
All we know is that Kevin meets her at the end of Kate’s wedding. The mystery lady gives Kevin some kudos on …read more
