‘This is Us’ Spoilers: Kate Pearson Lemon Ending Theory, Toby Damon’s Missing Wedding Ring

This Is Us spoilers reveal trouble ahead for Toby Damon (Chris Sullivan) and Kate Pearson (Chrissy Metz) in the third season. But some Twitter users were perplexed by the #ThisIsUs hashtag including a lemon. That is, until the words of Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) reappeared from the This Is Us writers’ room. “There is no lemon so sour that you can’t make something resembling lemonade,” Jack mused.

This is Us Spoilers: Kate Pearson, Toby Damon, and IVF

Kate Pearson and Toby Damon had their IVF dreams dashed when a fertility doctor refused to treat her because of her weight. The overweight woman cried and admitted she’d already lost 40 pounds but felt trapped in her body. Toby was relieved, seeing as though IVF treatments – with all the hormones – would have put her at risk.

Alas, just when the couple said “screw IVF,” the doctor summoned them back to her office. With horrible 90% failure odds, the doctor decided to give them a chance. Toby flushed his antidepressants in order to increase his sperm count. Yet such a haphazard decision will bring new lemons to sour their This is Us lives.


This is Us Spoilers: Toby Damon without Kate Pearson and his ring

Big clues for the lemony This is Us future include the question of the mysterious “her” being visited. An aged Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown) joins daughter Tess Pearson (Iantha Richardson) to visit a woman. Is it Kate Pearson? Is it Rebecca Pearson (Mandy Moore)?

Randall also called Toby in the flash-forward This is Us scene. He is once again in bed, solo. Randall asks, “You coming down?” Toby admits, “I don’t know if I should.” But Randall insists, “She wants you to be there.” Perhaps it is an elderly Rebecca, breathing her last breath, encouraging her former son-in-law to visit her deathbed.

Toby and Kate divorce afoot?

The second season of This Is Us closed out with Pearson Family celebrating a wedding. But Toby showing up sans wedding ring in future episodes – and snapping at Rebecca and Kate – leads viewers to talk divorce. He is laying in a big bed alone. There’s no Kate in sight which has led some watchers to wonder if she is the woman in peril.

At least This is Us viewers take comfort in the fact that Toby survived dumping those pills. Just how far into the future Rebecca and Kate survive is yet to be seen. Meanwhile, Jack Pearson and his love affair with Rebecca is explored. From the 1980s to the present day and the future, This Is Us writers have viewers guessing how the central family will turn lemons into lemonade on Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
