Netflix’s newest sequence Firefly Lane will hold you guessing till the final episode. The present, which relies on Kristin Hannah’s novel of the identical identify, follows two greatest pals by way of pivotal moments of their life. In fact, with a number of timelines, the present turns into a guessing recreation of making an attempt to determine what’s going to occur subsequent. Whereas the ultimate episode of season one solutions a number of questions – particularly, whose funeral everyone seems to be attending within the flash-forward – it additionally leaves us with a handful of cliffhangers.
Within the 2003 storyline, Kate’s estranged husband Johnny decides to take a job as a warfare correspondent in Iraq. Although the choice initially pulls Kate and Johnny additional aside, they finally spend the evening collectively earlier than he leaves. Simply when it looks as if they could get again collectively when he returns dwelling, we’re thrown for a serious loop within the closing few moments of the episode.
As we get a glimpse of Johnny in Iraq in one of many closing scenes, an explosion goes off and he is proven mendacity unresponsive on the bottom.

So, is Johnny alive or useless? That is nonetheless unclear. Within the flash-forward, Johnny isn’t any the place to be seen on the funeral for Kate’s father. We solely get glimpses of Kate, Tully, Kate’s brother Sean, and Kate and Johnny’s daughter Marah. The truth is, Marah truly drives her mother to the funeral and Kate is proven not sporting a marriage ring.
In fact, that does not precisely imply that Johnny is useless in current day. In any case, Kate did signal divorce papers in episode eight, so it is attainable that they’re nonetheless collectively, however not legally married. Plus, if it is the funeral of Kate’s father, maybe Johnny provided to drive Kate’s mom to the funeral individually or he is already on the church serving to get every thing so as. I’ve watched sufficient This Is Us episodes to know that issues are by no means what they appear, so the truth that they did not present him on the funeral looks as if a superb signal to me.
It is also price noting that actor Ben Lawson appears fairly optimistic about his character’s destiny in a possible season two. “I feel you are made to marvel if he is OK and I feel that each one issues going properly, we’ll see him extra usually and never simply in flashbacks,” he advised Leisure Tonight. “There’s quite a bit unresolved between Kate and Johnny as properly. Gotta get him again dwelling secure.” Fingers crossed Netflix renews the present for season two so we will get some solutions!
