*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Ahead of tonight’s episode of This Is Us, there’s only one question on our mind: What happens to Miguel?
There are several rumors floating around, but one of the most popular claims that Miguel (Jon Huertas) dies before Rebecca (Mandy Moore). Although this would explain why he isn’t featured in the flash-forward scenes, there’s a brand-new prediction that has emerged to debunk it. The new theory states that Miguel is still around in the future, even though he hasn’t been shown (at least not yet).
As Us Weekly points out, there may be a hidden meaning behind Miguel’s absence in the flash-forward sequences: Rebecca doesn’t remember him. Since her Alzheimer’s disease has affected her memory, perhaps Miguel limits his in-person visits to avoid confusion.
