Season 5 Finale Moments from ‘This Is Us’ to Get You Up to Speed
There’s a lot to unpack about what’s to come in season 6 now that the season 5 finale of This Is Us has aired. In case you missed it, we’ve compiled the TLDR list of big finale moments from the finale to get you up to speed. Be forewarned: there will be tears, as is customary.
[Warning: There are spoilers below for the season 5 finale of This Is Us.]
The pivotal finale of ‘This Is Us’ provided wedding answers.
Will Kevin End Up With Madison on ‘This Is Us’? Season 5 fans are eager to find out who Kevin will marry.
If you were among those that guessed Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Madison (Caitlin Thompson) wouldn’t follow through with the wedding, you’ve won bragging rights. Though the episode began with the intention of a wedding, Madison just had to ask Kevin the big question: “are you in love with me?”
We and Madison both knew the answer, but it took Kevin saying it out loud for the wedding to be called off. Kevin re-iterated he wanted a family, but that in and of itself wasn’t enough for Madison to move forward. Season 6 will most likely focus on how they each find a happy ending, whether with or without each other.
Randall has the potential to be a ‘Rising Star’ in the future.
With Randall, something big is bound to happen (Sterling K. Brown). A quick glimpse of a magazine on a nightstand showed an article of Randall as a “Rising Star.” We know he’s a city councilman, but we don’t know what becomes of his career in the future. This is the first time we see that he will excel sooner rather than later.
This might be important because of Beth’s (Susan Kelechi Watson) recent crisis due to the pandemic and having to close the doors to her dance studio. A previous episode’s flash-forward revealed Randall and Beth do remain together, so at least there’s that.
Madison’s backstory could connect a bigger piece of the puzzle
