Emma continues to lash out at Greenlee but pretends to be nice when Bianca’s around. Greenlee confides in Bianca about the situation with Emma and admits that it’s taking a toll. Emma slips out of the house and goes to Scott and Madison’s; Madison calls Ryan and he comes to pick up his daughter. Emma wants to know why he couldn’t marry Madison. Ryan insists she must go home and apologize to Greenlee. In front of Ryan, a sweet Emma apologizes but she whispers something nasty to Greenlee. Greenlee says she knows every trick in the book and won’t let Emma push her away because she loves her. Madison questions Scott about his movie plans with Marissa and he gets annoyed JR told her about his history with Marissa. When Madison presses for more information, the two admit they care about each other. JR continues to try and win back Marissa. He brings up something from their past which almost leads to a kiss but Marissa pulls back. JR’s unhappy to learn that Marissa has plans for the movies with Scott. Bianca thanks JR for the contract he set for Reese and believes him when he says he still has feelings for Marissa.

Jake and Amanda get into an argument over Cara. They don’t have a chance to resolve anything as Jake gets a call from the hospital. Cara confides in Tad that all the talk about Trevor hurt because she was close to getting pregnant once and will likely never have a baby now. Cara admits to Tad that he might be the best friend she ever had. Kendall invites Griffin to Erica’s wedding, claiming she might need medical attention nearby but he’s given her a clean bill of health and she’s okay to go. Kendall informs Griffin that she is working with the probate lawyer and the sale of the casino should happen soon. Griffin expresses his worry to Tad that pushing the sale of the casino might leave Kendall as a target and he’d like Tad’s help in getting a meeting with the casino partners. When Cara comments that it’s obvious Griffin is connected to Kendall he gets defensive, saying he just wants to get the money so he can open more clinics. Ricky accepts Kendall’s invite to the wedding and she informs Bianca that she’s asked him since Griffin turned her down. Ricky tells Griffin that Kendall invited him to the wedding and Griffin claims he’s fine with that. Diana shows up after having followed Kendall and Ricky reams her out. He thought he made it clear they were done and insists he will make Kendall love him. Kendall lets Diana in after she claims her car’s broken down.

Scott videotapes Madison and she tells her baby that they’re lucky to have Scott in their lives. Later, when they show up for a checkup, Ryan’s there and asks if he and Greenlee can join. Madison agrees but Greenlee and Scott decide to wait outside. Scott tells Greenlee he isn’t worried about Ryan and Madison but its obvious Greenlee isn’t as confident. In the exam room Madison and Ryan share a moment as they hear their child’s heartbeat. Ryan tells Emma that it was him, not Greenlee, who set up the appointment with the psychologist and she decides to go and get it over with. Afterwards, Emma reveals that she told the doctor she doesn’t want Greenlee as a stepmom. Unaware of this, Greenlee feels relieved when she gets Emma to laugh while telling her about her baby sister’s exam. Griffin and Tad discuss the potential threats to Kendall and the need to look into the casino partners. Griffin downplays Tad’s comment that he’s her secret protector and promises to stay back until Tad gets the meeting with Diana. Griffin covers then abruptly leaves when Tad asks if he’s seen anything pertaining to the stolen drugs. Using a different name, Diana gains entrance into Kendall’s, claiming her car’s broken down. Luckily for Kendall, Ricky shows up and covers his surprise. On her way out, Diana warns Ricky that if he doesn’t take care of Kendall she will. Kendall’s shocked when she sees Diana’s credit card with her real name as opposed to the fake one she gave. Griffin covers his surprise when Kendall tells him what happened; he calls Brot to inform him the threat against Kendall is real. Unfortunately, Brot can’t offer much help since there is no substantial evidence. Griffin shows up at Kendall’s to watch over her but says he’s there to give her medical advice. In Diana’s hotel room Ricky kisses her passionately but he’s still upset she didn’t listen to his instructions. After he finds her knife and she says she would have used it on Kendall he starts to choke her. Marissa confides in Bianca that she feels a pull towards JR but is unsure why. Bianca says it’s because she’s helped him through a lot of tough times. JR asks Marissa to attend his two year anniversary of being sober at his AA meeting but she holds strong and says they are in the past and he must accept that. Later, JR witnesses from afar Scott putting his arm around Marissa. When Marissa notices Bianca and the bartender sharing looks she closes out her tab and hints that she should go and talk to Bianca. The bartender does but Bianca says she’s not ready for a relationship just yet.  Amanda’s come to see if Jake can get off work so they can head home and start on baby #2 but Jake doesn’t think now is the best time despite her protest that it will help them get past their tension. Ricky winds up killing Diana and now must deal with her body. Griffin watches over Kendall as she sleeps. She wants to know why he’s really there but before he can admit the real reason Ricky shows up and he says what he was going to tell her can wait. Griffin asks Ricky to look out for Kendall and quickly leaves. When Griffin walks back into his hotel room he finds a dead Diana in his bed. Kendall tells Ricky that the woman who showed up at her home was using a fake name. She googles Diana’s name and discovers she was one of the VPs of Zach’s casinos. Liza and David have sex and she asks him not to tell anyone but encourages him to prove to PVH that he can continue to save lives despite the fact they hate him. David passionately tells Angie he thinks he can help cure her blindness.

As Tad informs him of the drug investigation, Jesse gets a call about the dead body in Griffin’s room. Jesse goes to the station while Tad leaves to finds Cara; after informing her of what’s going on and they head down to the station together. Ryan shows up at Kendall’s and she fills him in on everything that’s been going on.  Ryan wonders why Ricky would tell her not to overreact about an intruder. Ricky goes to Griffin’s hotel room and questions cops about the crime scene. Initially they deflect until Ricky asks to perform the last rites. While doing so he whispers to Diana that he will never forget this. Griffin is unsuccessful in trying to revive Diana and when the cops/Brot show up he tries to explain to no avail. Down at the station Griffin tells them what he knows about Diana. Ryan and Kendall show up and when Kendall says that Diana worked for the casinos Griffin’s shocked. He explains what he’s been doing with his investigation and who Diana is. Kendall’s upset because she had no idea about this investigation and Griffin thinks someone might be setting him up. Kendall thinks if Zach was murdered that changes everything. Both Griffin and Kendall are even more surprised when Jesse says they found two tickets to Tahiti under Griffin and Diana’s name along with drugs and cash stashed in his hotel room. Clearly uncomfortable upon hearing that, Kendall admits that Griffin told her he was taking drugs from the hospital.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

THIS IS US Fall Finale Delivers Shocking Twists

In the final moments of the season 3 fall finale of This Is Us, viewers were given several jaw-dropping moments befitting of this top-rated drama.  Along the Pearson family journey, back in time, present-day and flash-forward, fans of the series discovered: that Jack’s ‘believed to be dead’, brother, Nicky is actually very much alive.

In a key moment flashing back to the Vietnam war,  Jack finds his brother (who is stoned yet again) sitting on the pier and pretending to shoot Vietnamese villagers with his hand.  Nicky sadly informs Jack that he is not going to leave drugs behind again and clean up this act.  He announces, “I see it all when I’m clean,” and adds, “I’m not gonna complete the mission.”

At the end of that day, Jack can’t find Nicky.  Suddenly, there’s blast from the water, where it appears a boat has exploded, and one of the soldiers says there was a guy in it. Jack rushes into the river and swims toward the wreckage.  We don’t see what happens next, but the belief is that Nicky died in the explosion.

Kevin, who has been in Vietnam trying to learn what happened to Jack and Nicky in the war and about the mysterious woman in the photograph, feels he has zero answers to what happened during the war.   As he and Zoe prepare to leave, Kevin’s tour guide mentions that he’d searched an online database of the Vietnam War Memorial for Nicholas Pearson, but came up short.  The guide says Nicky didn’t die in the war.

Next, the show cuts to a bespectacled man (Griffin Dunne, who now takes over the role) living in an a trailer home. There is a piece of mail on his table addressed to Nicholas Pearson, 2125 Songbird Rd., Bradford, PA 16701.  This would mean that NIcky has lived there for a long time – and a three-hour drive from  Pittsburgh, where Jack and his family lived and were raised!

In other plot developments, the all-important  …Who is “Her?” flash-forward mystery was answered and we learn it is Rebecca.  She is still alive, and we see Beth in present day without her wedding ring to Randall, and seemingly running a ballet studio, getting set to meet up with Randall and adult Tess.  In a key moment Beth tells her employee: “We’re all going to see Randall’s mother .., oh, did you bring the Pin the Tail on the Donkey from the office? I promised I bring it.”  The Pearson Pin the Tail on the Donkey game has been a through-line for the years with the Big Three.

The fall finale gave a look into the future that Randall and Beth’s marriage may not have survived and it could have started with the fact that Randall would not drop out of the political race he was in, even after promising Beth he would, if things were not looking good for him as a candidate.  We also learn that Tess like girls and sorta came out to Randall and Beth, but did to her grandmother, Rebecca.

And, Toby and Kate learned that they are having a boy after cutting the cake to reveal its gender.

This Is Us EP, Dan Fogelman told EW.com about what to look for in the second half of the season when the show returns with all-new episodes starting on January 13th: “Now, it’s time — for a little while, and we will catch little glimpses — to focus on the present-day storylines that help you get there. There are many questions. Where are Kate and Toby in that period? Where is their relationship? Do they have children? Has Kevin figured out his love life? If so, with whom? Have Randall and Beth made it through as we hope Randall and Beth make it through? What has come of their respective careers? And what kind of shape or state is Rebecca in when we’re meeting her and they’re all going to visit her? In order to get to the future and to get more answers there, you need a little bit more present story in the back half of the season. So, I would say that should be the focus right now.”

Griffin (Matt Cohen) and Kiki (Hayley Erin) are late to Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) wedding, after they decide to undress (after they get dressed to the nines for the nuptials) and have sex.  After they make love, Griffin gets a call from Monica (Leslie Charleson) saying that the boards results are in as to if he has been reinstated at the hospital.

Curtis and Jordan are now getting ready to say their “I do’s” when the minister asks if there is anyone that has just cause that the duo should not be wed in holy matrimony.  Cue, Stella (Vernee Watson) who walks in looking very unhappy.  Will she unravel the wedding … or sit down and be a part of the celebration after getting some words of wisdom from Mike (Max Gail)?
