"There will be a bit of an exploration of marriage with regards to Randall and Beth going through times that aren't all sunshine and rainbows", Sterling K. Brown told People. "It's all open right now, so you might as well take a few months off not to worry and save your worry for season three". This moment should usher in a great understanding between the women, and hopefully serves as yet another breakthrough for Kate so we can start to see her flower into the positive spirit she was always meant to be. By the time we pick up the action, she's already signed away her parental rights, and Deja is more sullen and angry than ever.

On Tuesday's sophomore finale, Kate and Toby said their "I do's" at the Pearson family cabin and we saw what life would have been like had Jack still been alive in the present day. "It's going to be a well-told season next year", he said.

Time flies when you're watching and sobbing to This Is Us, and tonight we've finally reached the second season finale of the NBC/Fox series with the episode,"The Wedding". Elsewhere, a dream sequence gave us a glimpse into what could have been for the Pearsons, as the series previewed the future struggles that will plague the family and comprise Season 3.

The series has also taken what easily could have been a exhausted subplot, involving Randall's foster child Deja (Lyric Ross), and in the last few episodes broadened that into something more resonant than clichéd, while presenting Randall with a parenting challenge that, as is so often true on the show, ties into his past while simultaneously hinting at his future. Maybe she committed a awful crime that they haven't been able to come to grips with. Along the way, they play the "worst-case scenario" game, where they say things they are afraid of out loud to get it out of their system.

Randall: She might kill us both not in our sleep. This is a situation where Kate may have to take the lead on that front, ' Berger said.

When Rebecca offers to step aside to make sure her daughter's wedding is ideal, Kate immediately asks her not to. During Randall's toast, "The Wedding" teases next season with a time jump focusing on a year later. Deja has understandably been acting out after her mother abandoned her at the Pearson household.

Beth: She'll make Tess resent us and end up on the pole.

While he tells her they can't get married, he promises that she will one day meet a man who is better still than him. However, her being absent in a scene where Randall and Tess have to reluctantly go see someone they care about? First, Kevin flies to Vietnam with Beth's cousin Zoe and a photo of Jack in war. These are the five times we cried during the final episode of This Is Us Season 2! She even took a baseball bat to Randall's Lexus to show how much she disapproved of being considered part of their ideal family. Are you surprised that Kate is able to "let go" of Jack and make room for Toby?

Older Kate tells the urn, "You remember when the carnival would come to town every summer with those old roller coasters?"

The This Is Us season 2 finale is looking like it's going to be another source of waterworks for fans.

Because you know This Is Us season 2 episode 18 isn't going to pull any punches.

Though there's no indication who the "her" is that a salt-and-peppered Randall and adult Tess are referring to in their cryptic father-daughter conversation, it could be assumed that it's Deja that they're alluding to.

"This Is Us" loaded on several new pieces of baggage Tuesday.
