Nicky met Edie in ‘This Is Us’ Season 6 Episode 2

Rebecca and Miguel took Nicky on a road trip to see Sally, his lost love, in This Is Us Season 6 Episode 2. However, when they arrived at her house, the trio found out Sally had a husband.

An awkward dinner, heartfelt confessions, and sad revelations ensued. But, in the end, it was clear that Nicky and Sally were not meant to be. Nicky had been thinking about Sally for 50 years, and that was more than enough for him because it gave him hope. He finally got closure, and he, Rebecca, and Miguel left Sally’s house with a new perspective on life.

Nicky then decided that it was time to leave California and move back east. And while he was on the airplane at the end of This Is Us Season 6 Episode 2, Nicky met Edie, a flight attendant. The hour then jumped into the future, where the show revealed that Edie, now Nicky’s wife, is the one in the white car arriving at Kevin’s house. Nicky meets his spouse outside, where they greet one another and kiss.

They also talked about how much fans will see of Edie in the final season.

“She folds in really well,” Oyegun shared. “Every time you see Nicky, you’ll see Edie. That’s literally what we told her. We’re like, ‘You’re now his wife. So whenever he’s around, you’re around.’ She’s a part of the Pearson family now.”

The producer continued, “What we love so much is the perspectives of these people who marry into the Pearsons — the Beth perspective, the Miguel perspective, the Toby perspective, and now the Edie perspective — because they’re all such different people and they’re observing this very unique Pearson brood, with fun observations. Her banter with Griffin [Dunne] is just fun, fun, fun. Oh, I can’t wait for people to see episode 5!”
