SPOILER ALERT – This post contains spoilers from This Is Us so beware of reading further…
A major moment happened on the Super Bowl episode of the hit series This Is Us – we saw the show’s first flash forward!
The series just gave us our first look at the future of The Big Three after giving us flashbacks every episode for the past 31 episodes.
Near the beginning of the episode, we saw a woman who works with the foster care system talk to a little boy living in a group home to tell him that she found him a foster family. While most of us probably assumed this boy was going to the Pearson family, that wasn’t the case.
Later on in the episode, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) shared an emotional moment with his daughter Tess (Eris Baker). She asked him if he was trying to find a new life as he had searched for his father in the past and also welcomed a foster child to the family. Randall told Tess that she would always be his number one and that he is going to make her live in his house until she is 25. And after that point, he said he will be eating dinner with her once a week and visiting her in her office.
The scene then cut to the foster care worker, who we found out is actually adult Tess! An older Randall came into the office to visit her and watch the young boy meet his foster family.
We’ll have to wait and see how many more flash forwards we get in the future!
