We got to see Christmas on This Is Us on NBC tonight, as we found out back in the day that Rebecca promised Kate that nothing bad happens on Christmas Eve! We then proceeded to go into many different storylines on This Is Us Season 1, but the fall finale on NBC’s This Is Us came to a shocking and emotional end. Check out all the details from “Last Christmas” below in our This Is Us on NBC Recap!
Last week on NBC’s This Is Us 2016, we saw The Big Three take a road trip to their parent’s cabin, as their mother is selling it. It turned out Kevin decided to bring Olivia and her crew with them and Kate was not happy. Randall ended up drinking some smoothie the playwright brought that was laced with shrooms and he went on some drug-induced hallucination, which had Jack helping him get through the issues with his mother. Kevin saw the real side of Olivia and kicked them out, but the other female playwright was left behind and Kevin ended up sleeping with her!
Warning: This post contains spoilers from This Is Us tonight on NBC, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happened!!!
We start in the past and Jack is working on the tree and Rebecca said they overdid it. Kate is counting the presents and said her tummy hurts. Kevin and Randall come in and they are fighting about money and Randall didn’t buy him anything. Randall said he’ll be rich some day and Kevin will have nothing! Rebecca wants to go to church, but Kate said her tummy hurts. Jack feels her head and she is burning up. Turns out, she has to have her appendix taken out! Kate is scared, but Rebecca gives her a branch from a tree and said this branch means nothing bad will ever happen on Christmas Eve! Kevin tries to go back in the operating room with Kate.
Rebecca goes to get snacks and hears Dr. K yelling! Yes, the doctor that delivered their babies and he is not doing well. He has internal issues and he is going to die! His family is all out of state. Jack and Rebecca come to talk to Dr. K and Jack tries to give words of wisdom, but Dr. K is not having it. In the gift shop, we see Randall buy a snow globe. Then we see Kevin come to a menorah, Sister Mary and manger. He asked the nurse, if he were to pray, which one works the best.
Earlier Jack told Randall that Dr. K is the reason why they adopted him. So, the snow globe is for Dr. K from Randall as a thank you and the tears are already coming!
In the present day, we see that Kevin’s play is cancelled because Olivia has gone missing! So, the playwright lady that Kevin slept with (her name is Sloane) is ticked off because Kevin slept with Olivia and then scared her off at the cabin. Now Sloane has to go to a family dinner and is making Kevin go with her since he owes her! At the family dinner, it seems like there is a lot of tension in the family and they don’t support Sloane. We then see Sloane tell some family tradition story and Kevin said they can make this play work and Sloane can play the role and he believes in them! Sloane agrees to do it!
We now see Kate and Rebecca at the doctor’s office regarding the surgery for Kate. There are a lot of rules and dangers for the surgery and Rebecca thought the surgery was all she had to worry about. The doctors asks Kate questions about binge eating and being on meds and Rebecca is shocked by her answers. They are on the way to Rebecca’s to change and then to Randall’s. Kate said she text him and does not feel like going. At the house, Kate goes to get out and Rebecca stops her and wonders if Rebecca did this to Kate and always wondering about th food. Kate said she doesn’t know. They reminisce about the year Kate had her appendix taken out.
Now we see William at an NA meeting and sharing a story. He talks about not expecting God’s grace and opening up to it and feeling the joy of it. We then hear another guy named Jesse share a story about having someone he loved and he left him to go to his family. It appears this guy is talking about William? After the meeting, William calls Brenda and tells her he’ll be late. William and Jesse talk and William said he came to the meeting to see him and apologize before he dies. Jesse asked when he is dying and William said not tonight or tomorrow, but sometime after that. Jesse said he was angry with William running off, but he loves William and wants to spend these last days with him on This Is Us on NBC. Um, so William is gay?
Randall and Beth are at an office Christmas party and Randall listens to William’s voicemail. It looks like everyone is cancelling on their get together. Beth heard in the bathroom that Randall bought a boat and she is not happy! He seems to be a little tipsy and decides he will go un-buy the boat now. Randall goes out to the rooftop and the guy he was going to buy the boat from is about to kill himself and jump off the roof! The guy talks about having an affair and his marriage went to hell and now he is getting a divorce and his career is done. Randall said he won’t back-out on buying the boat, as he tries to talk to the guy down from jumping. Randall shares his own pain and story, as Beth comes out and Randall tells her to go inside! Randall turns around and the guy is gone, so he jumped? No, he is walking inside the party and Randall said nothing bad happens on Christmas Eve!
Randall and Beth get home with the girls and their Christmas tree is packed! Beth asked if they overdid it and Randall said always! Kevin and Sloane walk in and Beth is wondering who Sloane is. Then Rebecca, Miguel and Kate arrive. And a shocker, Toby arrives! Kate asks what he is doing there. Toby said he can live without pizza and donuts and brownies and all that stuff, but he can’t live without Kate! Yup, tears coming down again!
William and Jesse arrive and things are definitely busy now in the house. Kate and Toby go upstairs to have some fun, alone time together! We see William playing the piano and Jesse rubbing his back. Randall questions it with Beth, as their daughter said grandpa is gay, or bi at least! We see the family having a ton of fun together. Rebecca and Randall share some storytime together with the girls.
In the past, Rebecca holds Kate’s hand after surgery and then Dr. K is brought into surgery. In the present, Randall goes to take the girls to bed and everyone is kind of down for the count or cleaning up. Toby gets up and he is sweaty and then all of a sudden he drops the plate and falls over the table! They call 911, as we then go to the past and Dr. K is out of surgery and in a room and alive! Then we see another operating room and the buzzers going, as Toby has crashed and they can’t revive him! So, they get back together for him to die? Yeah, hot mess again!
