‘A Million Little Things’ Season 4 recap

Maggie Bloom (Allison Miller) begins her job as an interim replacement for Dr. Stacy in A Million Little Things Season 4. After numerous prank calls Nick (Mark Derwin) initiated, a young caller tells Maggie that she’s afraid because her mom drinks and drives. While Maggie attempts to help the girl, Nick returns because it’s time for traffic and weather. Instead, Maggie insists that she stay on the line with the child, canceling Nick’s broadcast altogether.

Maggie did get the little girl to give the phone to her uncle and work out how to get help for the family. However, many viewers believe that the phone call leads to the A Million Little Things spoilers below for season 4.

While he yells at her, a blonde woman (Rachel Nichols) watches the entire thing. Many viewers believe that she is the person responsible for Eddie’s accident.

However, other possible A Million Little Things Season 4 spoilers suggest that Maggie’s young caller’s mother is the one who hit Eddie.

“They don’t just introduce a character on screen like that without there being more to the story,” one fan wrote on Reddit. “Also, it is the perfect plot device that a former alcoholic would get hit by a current alcoholic or that she would turn to alcohol after hitting him due to the guilt. If I’m right, I expect by the end of the season that Eddie forgives her and assists her in getting help for her addiction issues.” 

Other viewers agreed that it is too coincidental that the caller’s mother drives under the influence of alcohol and someone happened to hit Eddie after he decided not to have a drink.
