It seems as quickly as it began, the third season of This Is Us has come to an end, and if reports are right that means we are officially halfway through the series. The season three finale once again left viewers hanging on emotional cliffhangers and while the season answered many questions, it opened the door for so many others, especially in the finale’s closing minutes. Although fans have to wait until September to find out what is going on in the past, present, and future with the Pearsons, we already know there is a lot season four has to address! Here are all the questions we need answered in This Is Us season four:
Warning: This Is Us season three spoilers ahead!
12. What Is Happening With Rebecca?
After season two’s incredible flash-forward scene, the big question that resounded with fans was “who is the her that Randall is talking about?” The season three finale finally fully revealed that the “her” in the flash-forward is in fact the family’s matriarch Rebecca Pearson, but it is clear that she is not doing well. Now, everyone wants to know what is wrong with Rebecca. While many think she may have dementia, others are suggesting that the reason Randall has to remind her that he is her son is because of brain damage she incurred from a car accident when the Big Three were younger. Naturally, showrunners Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker aren’t giving spoilers but Berger did say, “Possibly this is someone near the end of their life experiencing a lack of awareness and confusion that comes with extreme old age.” While Aptaker added, “I think it definitely feels like she’s very near the end of her life and that her passing is imminent and that’s why everyone has decided to descend upon Kevin’s house.” What is happening with Rebecca and her health and why the whole family is gathering on that specific day are all questions that fans definitely want answered sooner than later.
