Eventually, Rebecca and Miguel find their way back to each other.

Fans don’t know much about the message Miguel sent Rebecca all those years ago. But it will be further explored in This Is Us Season 6 Episode 15.

Jonny Gomez, the writer of episode 15, told Entertainment Weekly that the Facebook situation will get brought up in detail. “Over the years, we’ve seen how Miguel dealt with the grief of losing Jack by pouring his time and energy into Rebecca and the kids. Like he owed it to him,” Gomez said. “But life is funny, and maybe Miguel wouldn’t let himself admit he was starting to feel something more. We know he wasn’t alone in that. As Rebecca herself says in [season 6 episode ‘Taboo’], ‘Somewhere along the way …’ Dot dot dot. Neither of them could bring themselves to just say it. That ellipsis hung between them for a decade and we’ll finally see what happens on the other side.”

Gomez also said fans will see the Big Three “come into terms with what Miguel means to them” during the episode.

While This Is Us Season 6 Episode 15 focuses on Miguel, fans can expect an update on how Rebecca’s doing. So, what happens to Rebecca in the end? The entire season seems to foreshadow her death as her health condition worsens. Sophie actor Alexandra Breckenridge also teased a “looming death bed” toward the end of the season, which is presumably Rebecca’s.

“But as we close in on the end of the show, and we have this looming deathbed that’s been teased over the last few seasons in the future, Sophie’s going to be a great sense of support and stability for Kevin,” she told People.

What Rebecca’s worsening health means for Miguel remains to be seen.

This Is Us Season 6 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
