As to be expected, the Pearson family Thanksgiving in Season 4 of This Is Us was full of drama. Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Rebecca's (Mandy Moore) fight from the previous episode escalated in the fall finale before Rebecca finally admitted that she might need to see a doctor, though an ominous flash-forward revealed that things are going to get worse for the beloved matriarch.

The real jaw-dropping moment in the finale, though, came in the final sequence, when it was revealed that most of Rebecca's exploits in the episode — getting lost on a playground, getting confused at a grocery store, and at a Chinese restaurant — actually take place nine months in the future, on the Big Three's 40th birthday. The police bring her back to the family cabin where Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Kate (Chrissy Metz), along with Miguel (Jon Huertas), are waiting for her. Once Rebecca arrives, the audience finds out that at least part of the family isn't speaking to Randall and Kevin is not only engaged, but his fiancée is also pregnant.

It should also be noted that baby Jack and Toby (Chris Sullivan) are also missing from the birthday celebrations. That doesn't bode well for them considering Kate and Toby left Thanksgiving in a very precarious place after Avocadogate and Kate discovering that Toby has been venting about her to his crossfit group text.
