Camden (Ryan Hansen) surprises Maggie with breakfast in bed for her 30th birthday, but she’s not into it. She informs him that he should cancel their dinner that evening for her birthday. Her co-workers spend the day getting her a makeover for a fake photoshoot. However, the only person that can get her to go out for a birthday drink is Gary Mendez (James Roday Rodriguez). 

Gary and Maggie finally enter the elevator for the moment that viewers watched in the A Million Little Things Season 4 midseason promo. Gary is the one who stops the elevator to tell her about the surprise party. He gives her a pep talk about “showing up for the rest of your life.” It’s that moment when she presses the elevator button to go to the party, not kiss Gary as many fans had hoped. 

Instead, Gary watches Maggie and Cam happily walk around the party together all night, laughing happily. When a montage from friends who couldn’t be there comes on, viewers see Maggie’s ex-boyfriend, Tom. He gives a touching speech about celebrating Maggie’s 30th. He’s happy the doctors were wrong. Danny Dixon (Chance Hurstfield) also makes an appearance in the montage but there’s still no sign of Delilah Dixon (Stephanie Szostak).

In the last few moments of the episode, Maggie finally does find Gary and kiss her in an elevator! Are Gary and Maggie getting back together? It’s anyone’s guess!
