The finale of "This Is Us" airs Tuesday, March 13 at 9 p.m. EST. The promo for the episode teased Jack as an older man.

"This Is Us" wrapped its second season in uplifting fashion, with the wedding of Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby (Chris Sullivan), while offering us tantalizing teasers of things to come. Toby knows their wedding day isn't going to be a flawless day since Jack isn't around, but he pleads with her not to Runaway Bride him. But while one chapter closed, another one opened.

Like any soap with this many moving parts, "This Is Us" is engaged in a delicate balancing act, one where each moment of triumph or happiness by necessity brings with it, or is quickly followed by, a new setback or hurdle. Tonight was about Kate and Toby's wedding and featured a notable jump ahead from last week's Deja-centric episode. Jack isn't coming back from the dead for good.

The mystery of old Jack has been answered.

So curl up with a glass of wine and snuggle up under the covers as we dissect just what those season-ending cliffhangers mean for our favorite TV family. On the plane, Kevin holds a picture of Jack during his Vietnam War days. But he's not alone.

For the last time this season, we're going to single out the show's most powerful moments, scoring them by how many tissues we tore through just to watch them. Kevin and Beth's cousin travel to Vietnam to investigate Jack's military career! What new intel is he on the search for when it comes to Jack's history? It appears his depression has returned. Toby was lying in bed looking miserable as Kate told him his doctors wanted to check his medications again. The bad news? It looks like the Pearson family's future is headed into some dark places. Kevin tells Toby he's running late to pick up his parents at the airport. She disappeared for a while to search for something to replace it with that would remind her of her father, but when she told her mom about dreams she'd been having of her parents' imagined 40th anniversary vow renewal, Kate realized it was time for her to let go of Jack a little to make room in her life for Toby.

Randall (Sterling K. Brown) will attend his sister's wedding in "This Is Us" Season 2. Everyone in the Pearson family is there for the most part, save for Toby and Miguel. Meanwhile, Randall's handling the gift bags and Deja's attitude.

The answer is still hazy-but in Tuesday's finale, it became clear that while Beth might not be dead in the future, she's nearly certainly not well. "Dad would have loved it", Kevin assures Kate. A much-older Randall and grown-up Tess were talking about going to see "her", although Tess said she wasn't ready. "She would never hurt me!" It's quite clear from their exchange that it's someone they were once close with, but had a falling out in the past that caused them to sever ties.

Dion Lewis agrees to deal with Titans
He's the exact type of shifty, dual-threat back the Titans needed in the backfield alongside Henry. They agreed to a four-year deal with Patriots RB Dion Lewis according to ESPN's Adam Schefter .

The poor girl has been through so much in her life, and all we know is that at some point Toby is going to have to adjust his meds.

Kevin and Randall play the "what if" game where they throw out worse-case scenarios out.

Okay, we were half-right.

Randall: She might kill us both not in our sleep. She offers to talk to Deja for Beth.

Randall: Wait, Tess will resent us and Deja will end up on the pole?

The series has also taken what easily could have been a exhausted subplot, involving Randall's foster child Deja (Lyric Ross), and in the last few episodes broadened that into something more resonant than clichéd, while presenting Randall with a parenting challenge that, as is so often true on the show, ties into his past while simultaneously hinting at his future. Those two seem like small stretches, but we haven't exactly gotten confirmation that Beth and Annie are around in the future. Beth's parents raised her.

In season two, okay went out the window.

One thing we do know for sure, it's going to be a long hiatus.
