The This Is Us Season 4 finale answered several questions, but opened the door for new mysteries and fan theories. Here are five burning questions we have for Season 5.

Spoiler alert: This article contains major spoilers from the Season 4 finale of This Is Us.

This Is Us is notorious for their shocking premieres and finales, not to mention every other episode in between. The Season 4 finale is officially in the books, and it was certainly one to remember. I, for one, found myself yelling at the screen and covering my eyes, especially during the the last twenty minutes.

With so many timelines coming into play, many This Is Us fans were puzzled by some of the developments. In an effort to help resolve the confusion, here’s a breakdown of the burning questions coming out of the finale.

Who was the doctor with the red-haired daughter?

The Season 4 finale introduced us to a horse-loving doctor and his red-haired daughter. At first glance, I wondered if the doc was an older Jack Damon. There wasn’t enough evidence to support the theory that he was blind, and that’s when the twist came into play.

The doc, who remained nameless, was revealed to be Madison’s OB. (That’s right, Madison is pregnant, but more on that later.) The identities of the father-daughter duo remain unknown, but fans are dying to know who they are.

New fan theories call for a pretty wild storyline involving Dr. K. Some believe that the doc was Kyle, Jack and Rebecca’s son who died at birth. In this theory, Dr. K “stole” Kyle and raised him on his own because Dr. K’s own son died at birth. So, is Madison being treated by Kevin’s brother?

We have a lot of doubt about that theory considering Dr. K and his wife went on to have children and even more grandchildren. It sure would make for a wild storyline, however I don’t think it’s plausible. I do believe, though, that we will eventually learn who they are. This Is Us doesn’t just introduce us to new characters for nothing.
