At SXSW, Glamour discussed with This is Us creator Dan Fogelman and the cast about the finale and the question on everyone's mind: Who were Randall and Tess talking about going to see?!
Naturally, Fogelman's lips are sealed: "While Fogelman can't say where Beth is during that future timeline just yet, he does say that Susan Kelechi Watson (Beth) isn't going anywhere and "we don't have any other deaths coming in a present day storyline anytime soon."
Fogelman assures us that the cliff hanger will pay off and that it has been apart of the plan the whole time. Also mentions that they didn't purposely hide Randall's left hand (which sparked rumors about whether Beth and him were still together 10 years into the future or if Beth has died bc no one could see a wedding band lbr, they knew exactly what reaction hiding Randall's hand would bring out in fans).
Also brought up is what is Kevin's reason for traveling to Vietnam with his new gf - Tess' cousin Zoe!! Someone brings up maybe another Pearson sibling that Jack possibly fathered while in Vietnam - Milo wasn't having that though stating: "Hold on! Jack loves Rebecca! Jack loved Rebecca before he even knew Rebecca!" Also mention that Kevin appears to be sober still a year into the future!
