Brown) and the grownup model of Tess (Iantha Richardson).

However have been previous man Randall and Tess speaking about Deja sooner or later? There are different prospects…
Deja. Deja appears the plain selection, contemplating the long run scenes have been paired with current Deja’s actions. However has This Is Us ever been apparent? OK, sure, at instances it has. Possibly the Pearsons could not assist Deja. Possibly they failed. The seems on the faces of previous man Randall and grownup Tess appear to point that and disappointment.
Beth. How devastated would Randall be if one thing occurred to Beth? Does not look like it would be a divorce…Beth has has develop into a fan-favorite character and an emotional linchpin of the sequence.

Annie. Viewers do not actually know that a lot about Randall’s youngest daughter. One thing taking place to her can be unhappy for the household, however would it not have the identical emotional pull for viewers?
