The season five This Is Us finale ended with a transformative, compelling, question-creating minute of television that will leave fans theorizing until the premiere of the sixth and final season sometime next year. This season, shortened by two episodes and somewhat compromised by shooting conditions imposed by the COVID pandemic, brought the Big 3 back together after last season’s climactic Randall/Kevin blow-up. We also saw Rebecca tried her best to heal old wounds with her kids while her new medications stabilized her memory issues. Randall found a birth mother he didn’t know he’d lost. Kate adopted a baby we have no idea why she needed. And Kevin might have become the best version of himself yet in his journey to emulate his father.

In this last podcast of the season, Paul and Caroline also discuss:
  • The new, 5-years from now timeline established in the final scene and the clues we might have seen in it
  • The various ways Kate and Toby’s relationship might end up and how the characters could change as a result
  • Madison and Kevin – are they¬†really done?
