Guys, we made it! It’s the A Million Little Things first season finale and all the mysteries are about to be answered. So let’s get right into it, eh?
We kick things off with Maggie moving into Gary’s place. The plan is Eddie will move into her old apartment to make room. (I’m telling you, Eddie has the best deal; her place is sweet.) Maggie is reluctant to unpack or build any furniture until she gets the all clear from her doctor. Gary’s is optimistic and, thankfully(!!), he has good reason to be. When they get to the doctor’s office later, he tells them Maggie is in remission! Woo! Maggie laughs uncontrollably as Gary cries, but later at home, she really lets the news sink in as she unpacks her boxes at Gary’s place. She never thought she’d survive this time.
Before all this, the gang gathers at Delilah’s place. The Dixon family has been packing up Jon’s belongings and decided to give certain items out to the group. Gary gets his old Harvard shirt; Gina gets Jon’s first real estate award because she’s going to be a big name soon too. Rome gets cufflinks that Sophie bought for her dad for father’s day and Eddie gets a mini hockey stick from a 2011 trip. Later, in a flashback, we see Jon bought them for the guys at the airport when they missed their flight to see the Bruins at the playoffs. Since they couldn’t get to the game, they played their own game instead. Maggie gets a Colin Hay signed album.
Everyone gets ready to leave and Sophie shows Gary the old pic of “Emma” who showed up at their home last week. Gary recognizes her as Barbara Morgan. At last, we know for sure. Gary thinks they should head over there and demand answers, but Delilah doesn’t want any answers. She needs to move on; nothing she finds out is going to bring Jon back. Later, however, Sophie talks her into going so that her little brother or sister can know the real reason her dad killed himself.
Andddddd, because we’ve learned suspense from this show, we’ll get back to the Barb stuff a little later! Elsewhere, Rome and Gina test drive cars at the dealership. Initially, they think they should scale back and get a cheaper car until they see a zippy little number and Gina thinks Rome should treat himself. Gina negotiates a good price and they’re about to sign when Rome changes his mind and wants to get an SUV instead because they’re kid-friendly. Gina is all like, what?? Hell no, I don’t want kids. But Rome is adamant they can do it and wants to be a stay-home dad. He thinks having a child will put things into perspective for him. Gina is still not on board. She tells him so, adding that she’s still worried about his mental health. They’re saved by the bell, however, when D calls to say she’s gone into labor early. They rush to the hospital to be with her and when Rome gets excited telling Gina that could be them someday soon, she reiterates to her husband that she does not want this for them ever.
On the Eddie and Katherine front, the former couple is getting ready to tell Theo they’re divorcing, but then they realize the best version of them is when they’re together, supporting one another. They kiss and decide to give things another go instead. Yay — for now. Luckily, Katherine hadn’t filed the papers yet so they’re not actually divorced. Phew, that saved them a lot of extra paperwork. She invites Eddie over to dinner later so they can talk to Theo about it all. Later, at the office, Hunter tries to clear the air with Katherine and is kind of a patronizing d–k about it, so she tells him the only reason he made partner is because she turned it down and heads home to get dinner ready for her family. Go, girl! (Recap continues on page 2.)
