*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
The This Is Us season four finale is finally here. Aside from answering some big questions that have been looming throughout the season, the episode also serves up some unexpected twists that no one saw coming.
We open one day before a big milestone for the Pearsons: Baby Jack’s birthday and Kevin’s (Justin Hartley) first year of sobriety. The family gathers at Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby’s (Chris Sullivan) home in Los Angeles and Randall (Sterling K. Brown), Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) and their girls even fly out from the east coast. It’s a day of firsts, including Deja’s (Lyric Ross) first plane ride, and comes to a crescendo when Rebecca (Mandy Moore) tells her children that she and Miguel (Jon Huertas) have decided to opt in to the clinical trial in St. Louis. They’re moving in three weeks and they’ll be there for nine months.
This takes Kevin and Kate by surprise and Randall (who, as you’ll remember, guilted her into the whole ordeal in the first place) tries to act like he had no idea. Afterward, Kevin wonders what made her change her mind and he eventually realizes it was all Randall’s doing. Things get heated and right when the brothers are about to really blow up at each other, Madison (Caitlin Thompson) knocks on the door and tells Kevin she’s pregnant.
