'This is Us' emotional finale looks back, and ahead

"I can't tell you who the "her" is, but we'll be definitely following up on it in season three", Berger said.

At the end of the season 2 finale when Randall was giving his toast at Kate and Toby's wedding, we saw a Deja take Jack's old baseball bat to Randall's auto and smash his windshield.

So says Hannah Zeile, the 20-year-old actress whose star is quickly rising thanks to her pitch-perfect performance as teen-aged Kate Pearson on the NBC family drama.

Later in the episode, This Is Us further played with viewers' emotions seeing Jack and Rebecca's crenewal ceremony, including mentions of the couple opening their dream construction company, Big Three Homes, which they planned to open before the fire. It turns out it's a dream that Kate has been having leading up to her own wedding.

Two emotional toasts and several nail-biting moments later, This Is Us fans can finally start throwing some rice in the air; Kate and Toby are officially married. Notably, the day before Kate and Toby's wedding day, Toby's parents sit him down and voice their concerns over his decision to marry Kate, who his mom calls "unstable". Do you think Toby's parents are right about Kate being unstable? She even took a baseball bat to Randall's Lexus to show how much she disapproved of being considered part of their ideal family. The only family member who seems to be affected the most by Deja's absence at the function is Tess, whose anxious expression is quite telling. Did the finale set her up for a future prison stint?

For the last time this season, we're going to single out the show's most powerful moments, scoring them by how many tissues we tore through just to watch them. Because this is TV and especially because it's "This Is Us", don't expect it to go the way you think. "I'm not ready", Tess replies, shaking her head.

BJP's 4th RS nomination causes flutter in polls
Asked if the BJP approached the Central Election Commission on the issue, Gohil said: "Let them go wherever they (BJP) want to". The nomination of Independent Paresh Moolani was rejected since it was not backed by the statutory number of proposers.

"I think we've all been holding our breath for a long time". It's quite clear from their exchange that it's someone they were once close with, but had a falling out in the past that caused them to sever ties. If I'm playing the "what if" game that Randall plays where he envisions the worst-case scenarios, then Deja walking a dark path that leads her behind bars would be just that. And we see her getting up and preparing what looks to be like she is about to dump some of his ashes out near the tree. And since then, she's been happy, and she and Beth are like sisters.

Randall: Wait, Tess will resent us and Deja will end up on the pole? If something bad had happened to her, there's no way he'd be composed enough to go sit at Tess' desk at work.

Beth: Both on the pole. Meanwhile, it is also very well possible that it could be someone else. But I also wonder where Annie is and if the youngest daughter would be going to see whoever it is that Randall and Beth are seeing. And, don't worry, the show will return for a third season in the fall.

So, here are 5 things to know going into the episode.

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. Perhaps most excitedly, we've been given the promise that the future we glimpsed of an adult Tessa spending time with Randall (Sterling K. Brown) wasn't just a one-off moment; there's a story to be told in that time.
