This Is Us: 13 Questions We Need Answered In Season Three
It seems like in the blink of an eye the second season of This Is Us has already come to an end. The season finale brought us images of an old Jack, a dream wedding for “Ka-Toby” and some gut-wrenching scenes for what is to come in the future for the Pearsons and their families. While fans will have to wait until the season three premiere in September to catch up with the Pearsons, we are already looking ahead to next season with all the things fans need to see and all the questions we need answered in season three. Warning season two spoilers ahead!
13. Who Was Old Randall Talking About?
The end of season two raised a lot of questions, specifically when we saw Old Randall again. Since creator Dan Fogelman had confirmed the series was going to explore even more timelines, it was already known that we would be seeing Randall in the future again, but this time he scared us. In the flash-forward Randall is still visiting a grown-up Tess at work and tells her, “It’s time to go see her,” and Tess responds, “I’m not ready.” Now the question remains: who are they talking about? Her can be anyone from Beth to Annie to Deja, and whoever it is, it is clear the relationship is strained, which leaves us with even more questions! We need to know who Randall was talking about and why he and Tess weren’t ready to go see that person.
12. Mixing Up the Characters
For most of seasons one and two the focus was very much on the central characters while the peripheral yet important characters like Toby, Beth and Miguel were only seen as support to the Pearsons. Season two’s “The Fifth Wheel” however opened fans up to Toby, Miguel, and Beth when the three spent some time in a bar sharing their perspective on the Pearsons that they loved so much. Their point of view was different and offered a new dynamic to the complicated stories being told through Randall, Rebecca, Kate, Kevin and Jack so it is something we would like to see continued in season three. Susan Kelechi Watson, who portrays Beth Pearson, also confirmed that she is very interested in sharing more screen time with different characters like those scenes she had with Jon Huertas’ Miguel and Chris Sullivan’s Toby.
