    Yep you called it on the visit to a Dr!

    Toby totally stepped up like I hoped he would. I loved when he figured out that he could introduce Jack to the sounds of Star Wars. And Jack drooling on the (collector's edition?) figures was so cute!

    I suspect the preview of next week's ep might be a clue.

    When Randall was talking to the therapist, he said it was him that held the whole family together. I suspect Kevin thinks the same thing and they blow-up over that.

    I stumbled on to this show last fall and zoomed thru the seasons to catch up. Very glad it's on the air.

    I love that little Jack’s music career came from Toby.

    Looks like we're starting to see why Randall wasn't as the 40th bday party. He's not going to respect Rebecca's decision to not spend 9 months in St Louis.

    How far into the future is the 40th birthday party from this episode? Have we been given enough clues?

    It's just a few months now. They've mentioned multiple times being 39 during the same timeline as when learning about Rebecca's dementia.

    Does Randall have a psychotic break from reality based on his alternate past where he “saved” his dad?

    It was obvious she wasn’t going to try the treatment. It would only prolong the inevitable without any assurance of even that. Let her spend her time with her family as much as possible.

    Randall won’t get treatment for himself but pushes dear mom to a clinical trial

    Randall being plagued by visions of a world where he prevents his dad from going back in the house was a bit heartbreaking.

    I was partly hoping that it was going to be an alternate timeline. I like Jack.

    3/24/2020 The Strangers part 2
    This is the season finale. And like Strangers part 1 we get introduced to new characters.

    Kevin and Madison have twins! Both are with Kevin and Randall at Rebecca's bedside. No Kate or Madison sightings yet though, so wonder if they will show up later?

    Kate and Toby decide to adopt a child. We see Jack's sister at the birth of Jack's daughter. Though no Kate and Toby which seems strange. I thought the woman in the art gallery was going to be Kevin's new girlfriend. Kind of creepy that they set it up that way with the banter about her dating a movie star, and then she ended up being Jack's sister!

    As expected, Kevin figures out that Randall bullied Rebecca into going to StL for the trial and it didn't go over well. Looks like that big fight is why Randall isn't at the 40th b-day party. I wonder if Rebecca will really go and participate?

    Interesting to see in the flash forward Kevin has a ring and in a flash forward from last season Toby did not.

    And we STILL don't know who Kevin's wife is going to be. Apparently it's still one of 3 possible women, since they showed both Sophie (laughing at Kevin's billboard), and the girl whose name I don't recall right now (visiting Uncle Nick). And of course Madison.

    The woman visiting Nicky is named Cassidy.

    Yikes, the Kevin/Randall fight was nasty! The epitome of not being able to take words back. To tell your brother that he caused your dad's death (when you know he already feels that way) and to say the worst day of your life is when your adopted brother was adopted? :eek: Doesn't seem like you can recover from that.

    I read the Deadline article postmortem on the show and it does not give anything major away but what is nice is that they have a guarantee renewal it appears to finish the story arc they have planned. So they know what and when will get revealed.

    The one interesting thing in the article is
    that there would be more flash forwards and less flashbacks going forward. I presume that means we will see less of Jack and Rebecca as time marches on and more of Randall/Kevin/Kate(If she is still in the future) becoming parents and eventually grandparents

    Siblings fight dirty. I think they will make up but it will take a while. We know they are still estranged for the 40th b-day party. But I think we will see them forgive and move on.

    Didn’t we see a flash forward last season of Toby in bed depressed?
    Was that resolved and I just forgot about it?
