It’s a wedding. Kevin and Randall and Kate are all sitting there as Rebecca walks down the aisle to Jack. They are renewing their vows on their 40th anniversary. Actually it’s the day before Toby and Kate’s wedding at the family cabin. He just wants to make sure she isn’t going to pull a runaway bride.
Actually she has a gift for him. He’s been so accommodating that she got him a used Leslie Nielsen bow tie. He’s happy. She’s happy. Kevin is harassing Randall about gift bags on the phone. It’s a good time. Randall is a little frazzled. Things have been hectic and Beth tries to calm him down.
Deja walks by and he tells her to make sure she’s ready to head out soon. She snarks back. She’s been like this since her mother gave up parental rights in court. They don’t know what to do. Rebecca and Miguel talk about who is more of an awful reminder of Jack.
Hours later Randall shows up at the cabin. He dropped everyone else off because it’s been a long ride. Kevin meets Randall outside and they hear Kate yelling. She can’t find Jack’s t-shirt and it was meant to be her something old. They call Toby, who is driving with his parents. He forgot to pack the shirt. They tell Kate but it’s no problem. They will find something else.
Jack is reciting his renewal vows to Rebecca. He talks about getting notes in his lunch when he was at the old company and then spending his days with Rebecca once they started the company. It’s wedding day. Randall rolls up with the family. He sends the girls inside as Beth greets her sister. Deja keeps to herself.
Randall and Kevin have rounded up a few something old options. They are not good but Kate is unconcerned. She just has an errand to run. She’ll be back. As she heads out Rebecca walks in. She thinks this is her fault. It’s not. Kate gets into town and goes to what used to be an ice cream shop she went to with Jack. It’s hipster now. The tradition is gone. She’s sad.
Rebecca sings for Jack at their renewal reception. It moves him to tears. Still no sign of Kate so Randall and Kevin head into town too. Madison offers to go with them but Randall shuts it down. She’s crazy and Kevin tells Randall to make sure he doesn’t sleep with her. They get into town and eat hipster nutella ice cream and then drive around looking for Kate.
They talk about how self-absorbed and shitty they’ve been over the years. They lost site of Kate and weren’t good brothers. At the renewal reception, everyone is all smiles and dancing. Deja is still being an angsty teen so Zoe takes a few minutes to talk to her. She knows what it’s like to be the kid left behind and life is easier when you let go of the anger. Deja listens.
Toby is getting ready when his parents come in. They have concerns about Kate. He bends over backwards for her and think that she’s unstable. They bit their tongues during his first marriage but they won’t do it again. He shuts them down. He is marrying the love of his life and they can be there if they want.
Miguel walks in to compliment Rebecca. Still no sign of Kate but that’s when she calls. She tells Rebecca about her dreams of the renewal ceremony and Rebecca seems happy to hear about them. She asks what Toby is doing in the dreams and Kate says that he’s not there. There’s an awkward pause and then Kate ends the call.
Kate ends up in the woods with Jack’s urn. She’s talking to him about having to let go and make room for Toby. She’s ready. She turns around and Kevin and Randall are there. They goof around and then head out. It’s time for Kate to get married. Everyone is making their way outside. Zoe is guarding a door though. It’s for Deja. She’s dressed up and ready.
Beth and Zoe hug it out. Kate and Rebecca have a moment about how Kate has always looked up to her mom because that’s who she wants to be. The wedding goes off without a hitch as Jack tells a young Kate that someday she will find someone even better than him and he will be a lucky guy because he will get to marry her.
It’s the actual reception this time. Everyone is having a good time. Toby’s mom tells Deja she looks just like her father, Randall, and it’s too much. She leaves the tent. Kevin gives a toast. He talks about how hard they tried to make this good for her like Jack would have and that it’s time they all learn to let go and have each other.
Randall takes over the toast. No one knows the future. No one knows where they will be in a year. Kevin and Zoe are on a plane to Vietnam. Toby is depressed and bedridden. What matters is who you choose to be with. Deja smashs Randall’s windshield. An older Randall talks to his now adult daughter Tess about going to visit someone.
He wraps it up by telling Kate and Toby that he’s glad they chose each other. Then it’s back to dancing. Everyone is smiling. Kate dances with Miguel. Beth and Randall are with their kids. Kevin is by the punch when Zoe walks over and starts to chat. She’s a sucker for a good toast after all.
THAT ENDING! THE FUTURE! IS IT BETH? It better not be. She’s the best one I’m so concerned about her already. I hope it’s a fake out. I love Zoe. She was great and I think she’ll be good for Kevin. I liked the Kevin and Randall scenes. Pairing them goes from funny to tears to funny in like two seconds flat which is really impressive. The whole cast just pulled this season off really well. I felt bad for Kate with the ice cream thing but it was just a good episode.
