'This is Us' recap: The Ka-Toby wedding

'This is Us' recap: The Ka-Toby wedding

On the show, the character died tragically after a fire, but his daughter Kate, played by Chrissy Metz, dreams of what it would have been like if Jack and her mother, Rebecca, played by Mandy Moore, were renewing their vows on their 40th wedding anniversary. It took all of our breaths away in a way that we didn't expect.

After the toast, Zoe approaches Kevin and compliments his speech.

Toby's family will be explored more in "This Is Us" Season 3. On the plane, Kevin holds a picture of Jack during his Vietnam War days.

Who do you think Randall and Tess are going to see? Madison technically isn't family, but she and Kate have gotten really close lately-so close that she was maid of honor (according to Madison).

"Toby's parents give that very pointed speech about seeing him depressed and about how hard it was for them, and I think it's safe to assume he's going to have some of those troubles moving forward", executive producer Elizabeth Berger told Variety following the episode. Earlier in the episode Toby's parents pleaded with him not to marry Kate since she was a hot mess; that his first wife drove him to a dark depression when she left. As with the baby, the entirety of the story focused on Kate and Toby. "I had a wedding, but I didn't have to pay for it or have a husband, so it was great", she said in an interview. "And then to let a piece of Jack go, so there's truly room in her heart for Toby - so much of the pain and the shame had filled her heart for so long that she had to overcome that to come through it". God only knows what's in store for the newlyweds. Because this is probably not a one-off (nothing on this show is) and because the series devoted an entire episode to Deja (Lyric Ross), some clever fans are wondering if the table is being set for a new "Big Three" with Tess, her sister Annie (Faithe Herman) and Deja. Is Future Deja - who, at the wedding, went completely Beyonce-in-the-"Hold Up" video on Randall's vehicle - in jail or in a mental hospital? And Randall and Kevin rush to Artisanal Scoops, where they've just missed Kate, and stay on her tail.

'Die Hard 6' Script To Be Reworked By 'The Conjuring' Writers
According to reports, " The Conjuring " writers have been roped in to work on the screenplay for the next Die Hard entry. Last month, Willis revealed that the film is still going ahead and the script had been written.

In the finale, Beth and Randall play a game of "worst case scenario" and there's one conversation they share that may be a serious case of foreshadowing. The place has changed, and they no longer sell her favorite flavor - she was hoping to buy it to serve alongside cake at the reception. Zoe, for the short term, seems to make some sort of impression on Deja, as the teen actually gets dressed for the wedding (but then later goes missing at the end). "Me neither", responds Randall. And we don't need Beth to be sick or dead to know that her family would be lost without her.

Overall, tonight was a moment of catharsis for Kate.

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.

Older Kate tells the urn, "You remember when the carnival would come to town every summer with those old roller coasters?" I had to wait two years, but that's what's really special about it. That feeling of you next to me.

The "what if?" aspect, however, was driven home by the understated flashbacks, as Kate reflected on quiet moments with her father, who spoke about her eventual marriage and being there to walk her down the aisle.
