This Is Us: Nicky's Fate Revealed (SPOILERS)


Oscar Rendon | St. Louis, MO | December 3rd, 2018


This Is Us aired their mid-season finale last week and was filled with many answers, surprised and in true This Is Us fashion.. more questions. The biggest surprise came in the final moments of the episode (Episode 309 ‘The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning’) when it was revealed that Nicky, Jack’s brother did not die in Vietnam. In the shocking final minutes we hear an explosion in the camp as Jack races to find Nicky. The question raised from the episode is how Nicky got out of Vietnam and if he’s still alive in present day. We are shown a glimpse at who we presume to be Nicky in a trailer but it’s unclear what time period it is set in.

Another question answered is the “her” that is spoken of in the flash forwards. When an adult Tess and Randall are talking about visiting “her” we get all the pieces put together and the “her” is Rebecca. But the why is still unknown. This Is Us returns next year January 15th, 2019 and things we hope to get from the mid-season premiere is what Nicky is up to and if Kevin ever finds him. More of Jack’s story before Rebecca and during their dating years. This Is Us stars Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, Michael Angarano, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson, Jon Huertas and Melanie Liburd.

This Is Us airs Tuesday’s on NBC
