Can love and loss coexist? NBCs This is us has told us over and over that the coexistence of these two seemingly contradictory feelings is, in fact, life’s greatest testimony. Over the years we have cried with the Pearsons and laughed with them too. The show is heartwarming at its core, whether it’s Jack & Rebecca Pearson in flashbacks, or their kids Kevin, Kate and Randall growing up to become adults themselves.
The show has produced exceptional stories of what it means to be a family, by blood or by choice. We’d argue that all of the good moments on the show are largely due to the loving nature of Jack Pearson – portrayed just as swooningly by Milo Ventimiglia – but this thought is a tear-jerk as we know Jack is no longer with us.
Now in its fifth season, This is us returns with the last three episodes of the season in May. The final is scheduled for the 25th, but there are already many theories in the rounds about what the final could involve. This season has been short, but extremely tough, as the show navigated social issues while discussing their own dynamics that emerged from the previous season.
This is us season finale: are we ready yet?
As we travel through time on the show, we know that the penultimate season finale is going to be something epic. When it comes to This is us, we are always ready to be surprised with shocking twists, uncomfortable drama and overwhelming emotions.
There are high hopes for a shock element from this finale, as next season will be the last, as creator Dan Fogelman shares, “the Pearson story will basically come to an end.”
Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin, reportedly denied this as much as we did when he said, “As long as we’re still telling this story and as long as it’s compelling. If it takes 70 years to tell this story, I’ll be there for the next 30, probably 40. But I love how the story unfolds and I love being a part of it. So I’ll do it as long as they let me. “
What is the latest theory about the block?
Even the cast of the show has reportedly been kept in the dark about what the season finale has in store for us. The most viral theory out there since season 5 began is this one: Something terrible is happening to Kate. We know Kate and Toby will be adopting Hailey, but all flashes so far have one thing in common: Kate is conspicuously missing.
Here’s how the fans crack the numbers: Kate wasn’t shown in the cabin house scene, Toby seemed pretty gloomy in the future, he didn’t have a wedding ring on, and most importantly, Kate wasn’t shown by Rebecca’s side on her deathbed. Other fans have claimed that we first got to see Randall with Rebecca in her final moments, and Kevin didn’t come in until after an entire season.
We probably still see Kate. But we may see a tragedy in the season finale. The odds are evenly distributed.
Tease the series that ends before This is us
In the meantime, we are also thinking about the finale of the whole show. Ventimiglia has used words like “awesome”, “magical”, “hopeful” to describe the ending of the series. In the same breath, he has also pointed out that the show is “ turning into something we couldn’t dream of or imagined would become. ”
Hartley agrees with the seemingly unpredictable conclusion: “You will have a full heart just because by then you have watched these people and all their travels for so long.” For example, we cannot wait.
