Need a Refresher? Here's What Went Down on the This Is Us Season 4 Midseason Finale
This Is Us is returning for the second half of season four, and we're ready for some answers. During the season four midseason finale, the series hit us with another timeline as it jumped forward to the Big Three's 40th birthday. Though only nine months have passed since the Pearson family had Thanksgiving dinner together, clearly a lot has changed. The biggest shocker is that Rebecca's health has gotten even worse since we last saw her.
During the episode, we see Rebecca get lost, lose her phone, and eventually get escorted home by the police when she can't remember her son's phone number. While the audience is led to believe that the story is happening in present day, we later learn it is actually a flash-forward to the Big Three's 40th birthday when she arrives at the family's cabin home. As we emotionally prepare ourselves for the show's return, brush up on all the shocking twists from the midseason finale.
