    Yes, and if Jack isn't with Toby but he's on his way with 'they', that is probably Kate, but could be someone else. They're being cagey. Randall or someone not mentioning Kate's name at all is odd if she is still alive, but not really suggestive of anything in particular. Writers want us to wonder and speculate.

    I think there's a lot of story to tell there. When last we saw Nicky, he wanted to be left alone in his trailer. Over the next years we might see him reconnect with Kevin step by step, then the rest of the family. It would make sense, and I would love to see that progression.

    I don't think Rebecca and Miguel live in Pittsburgh anymore, they seem to be much closer to Alpine, New Jersey, from various times such as Christmas when they were within a pretty short drive.

    I meant the People's Choice awards, as indicated in the background of the faked pic in the link, and in the pic of Melissa McCarthy. The last one was held in November 2018. She performed live last night at the ACM awards, you can check out youtube to judge for yourself any change from season 1, but I don't see much. She's beautiful and talented quite apart from her size. The only way I can see them having kept her out of the flash forward in this episode because they think she'll be substantially different in the future is if they have specific knowledge that she plans to undergo gastric bypass or something. Otherwise they're just hoping. Her weight doesn't seem to be holding her back much in her career, she's got a movie out and is singing on national TV.

    I think the second photo in that link is bogus. The 2019 Critics Choice hasn't been held yet, and previous Critics Choice pictures show her at a heavier weight than that picture, in different clothes. I think that's Melissa McCarthy's body. Take a look at this year's Golden Globes photo and she looks the way she looks on TIU. I don't think she's made much headway. She still could in the next couple years, but I don't think the show can keep her out of flash forwards all the time if they are going to use that device much.

    I do think they would let the kids finish the school year. Yet, they could be packing up the house for a move to a place they closed on fast in Philadelphia. They don't have to have sold their house before moving, they may have no mortgage on it and can take their time selling if need be. As for the baby's age, no real idea, but he still looked super small to me when he was home. Maybe they just wanted to save money on not making two animatronic ones of differing ages.

    They never really try on this show with the geography or climate. However, I did notice Toby had on a jacket and scarf when he came into Kevin's, so that should be a clue that they're probably not going to be celebrating the actual birthday of Jack and the big three. Maybe a re-enactment.

    I don't know who lil Kev's mother is, but I think Kevin is a single father. Randall asked him where his dad was, not his mom and dad. I am spitballing that Annie has taken after Beth and is a dancer in some company in another city or on the road, and is coming in to see grandma soon. Deja has followed Randall into activism/politics, and is a lawyer in D.C. or somewhere, also coming home soon. Kate became a respected teacher and vocal coach, she may be based in NYC. I think Miguel passed on awhile ago and Nicky has become a dear part of the family, family he never had once Jack tossed him aside.

    I think it's quite possible. When Randall was going in, he asked if "he" was in there, without having to say Nicky's name (partially to not spoil the surprise for us), but that suggests that he was more than a one-time visitor. Otherwise Randall might have asked if anyone else was there, or on their way.

    I re-watched the end of the episode and noticed that when Jack begins to unleash his persuasive skills on the desk person, Kevin says "but we could have made it one night." So it really was Jack who was the child there. But we had to have the echo of that walk down the hospital corridor for when adult Randall goes in to see future Rebecca.

    If she's blind, she would know his voice without him introducing himself. If hearing impaired, she would know him by sight. If both, he wouldn't have needed to speak, or at least he would have spoken more loudly. Adding "your son" really makes it seem like she doesn't know him. I feel like that's what was making it hard for him and Tess to go there, that they are strangers to her.

    I go along with this but not to the point of maybe not continuing -- I want to see what they do with the possible return of Nicky, and I also think a focus on the next generation, especially Tess and Deja, could be interesting. Those two young actresses are gold, and there's a lot they could do with them in their new environment, very different from Alpine, NJ. If they continue with the hokey, speechifying, and lack of realism, then I reconsider. Which seems to be a formula that works for them ratings-wise.

    They will have big changes ahead and that is often difficult at first, but yes, they could enjoy a lot of it and they will definitely have the benefit of more time with their father. He won't be commuting 4 hours a day or sleeping on a cot sometimes, which was a major waste of time and loss of opportunities for contact. That isn't all of what motivated Randall to object to Beth's dance plans -- he set off on that after Deja told him how she had never had a regular routine with family and how much she liked it. He was off to the races after that. Probably an overreaction (which he then laid at Beth's feet), but it isn't just about the kids having a babysitter at all times.

    I still can't rule it out because some damage doesn't show on an MRI. For example, all of these football players who have CTE can't have it diagnosed while they're alive, the MRI technology is not there yet. Concussions also often don't show, and small strokes don't always show damage to the brain. I think head injury is in the mix of possibilities, but they could well be misdirecting. I think they deliberately played with the Randall-Beth are they or are they not divorced thing. They could be doing the same here. Whatever it is, she's in a bad way, the family is gathering as if to say goodbye, we've seen some of them but some are on the way and we can wonder what's up with them.

    Yes, that was a real eye-roller. He's been portrayed as super dad, pitching in with anything, making fun and games, putting sequins on Madonna gloves for Kate's birthday, and he can't figure out something for dinner, and the kids sit there waiting to be served. No. In the middle of the night worrying and unable to sleep, I thought they would go the route of all sleeping in Jack's room. Going to the hospital and descending on their mother who needed a minute of rest, so annoying to me. I wish the desk person had booted them. I guess it was supposed to remind us how Rebecca said "we're family" in Kate's waiting room, but it was too much. We get that Rebecca meant the world to them, we don't need anvils.
