This Is Us Season 5 Episode 15, “Jerry 2.0,” teased a few storylines for the Big Three. Kevin and Madison (Caitlin Thompson) had their respective bachelor and bachelorette parties. But it wasn’t all fun and games.

This Is Us fans started to see Kevin doubt his relationship and future marriage with Madison, particularly after speaking with his ex-wife, Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge). Madison also seemed to notice Kevin’s hesitation. 

Meanwhile, Rebecca (Mandy Moore) told Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) that she wanted to hear about Randall’s visit to New Orleans, where he learned more about his birth mother, Laurel (Jennifer C. Holmes). Beth has also been dealing with a full plate, as she navigates her relationship with one of her daughters, Tess (Eris Baker), and the loss of her dance studio amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The new This Is Us episode on May 18 also highlighted struggles in Kate and Toby’s (Chris Sullivan) marriage. Toby revealed how stressed he was without a job. Then he expressed interest in a new position in San Francisco, seemingly without telling his wife.

In the This Is Us Season 5 Episode 16 promo trailer, NBC invites viewers to Kevin and Madison’s wedding. The preview begins with the Pearson family setting up for the big celebration, and nothing is out of the ordinary. Randall assembles a structure as Madison gets ready with Kate. Then Randall and the girls walk over to Kevin.

“Madison and I haven’t had the most romantic start,” Kevin says in a voiceover. “But today… today will be one for the ages.”

Meanwhile, the This Is Us promo drops a few clues beyond the big wedding. Beth and Tess stand in front of the mirror together, and it looks like another mother-daughter talk could be on its way. Then Randall gets to speak with Rebecca. Will they discuss Laurel and what happened in New Orleans? Only time will tell.

The This Is Us finale trailer also teases a flashback featuring Rebecca and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia). Then Kate shares a moment with Toby. Finally, the preview ends on Kevin, who simply stares off into space.

In all honesty, the This Is Us Season 5 finale promo trailer didn’t give fans much to work with. But given all the mysteries surrounding the Pearsons in episode 16, we don’t blame them. Nevertheless, Brown shared a few more teasers in an interview with People. And to no one’s surprise, fans should prepare for another emotional ride. 

“We end with the wedding,” Brown said of the This Is Us finale. “That’s something that shouldn’t be a surprise. It will lead to a wedding, it’s going to be joyous and exciting.”

He continued, “But as soon as you anticipate you know what’s going to happen, [creator Dan Fogelman] does a wonderful job of trying to keep you on your Ps and Qs. Almost wishing that you drank a V8 because you’re slightly off-kilter. All those questions you said will sort of be explored in the finale.”

This Is Us Season 5 Episode 16 airs Tuesday, May 25, at 10 p.m. ET.
