From finally being able to see Milo Ventimiglia and Chrissy Metz in a scene together to the wedding fans have been waiting to see, This Is Us delivered a season 2 finale chock full of surprises.
Audiences were brought to tears as the drama leading up to the big Ka-Toby wedding included pre-day jitters and special family moments, including Kate imagining her father Jack as an older man for a 40th anniversary party with Rebecca.
But that wasn’t all! Kate was finally able to let go of her father’s tragic passing hours before the wedding as she had a heart-to-heart with Jack’s urn at their meaningful tree stump spot.
