‘A Million Little Things’ Season 4 Episode 9 preview teases something between Maggie and Gary

In the preview for A Million Little Things Season 4 Episode 9, “Any Way the Wind Blows,” the friend group celebrates Maggie Bloom’s (Allison Miller) 30th birthday. Although she stands next to her boyfriend, Camden (Ryan Hansen), viewers see later in the preview that something happens between her and Gary Mendez (James Roday Rodriguez). The ABC synopsis gives a little insight into what’s going on with Maggie and Gary.

“Gary learns some new things about Maggie on their road trip to Albany,” the ABC press release reads. 

In another trailer for A Million Little Things Season 4 Episode 9, viewers watched Maggie pick up an awkward phone call from Cam. When the show last aired on Dec. 1, 2021, fans saw Gary join Maggie on her road trip to New York to visit her semi-stalker. However, from the phone call with Cam, it’s evident that Maggie did not tell her boyfriend she had an unexpected guest with her. Then in the new preview for episode 9, Gary tells Maggie to “show up for the rest of your life.” She unexpectedly presses the emergency stop button on the elevator, and many viewers think the couple might kiss.
