Kate has been on a real rollercoaster in Season 3 of This Is Us. First she went into labor much too early, then spent hours at the hospital while the doctors and nurses did what they could to save her and her baby. Eventually Kate had to have an emergency c-section, meaning her newborn son Jack is months premature. And while he's okay for now, these 7 theories about Kate's baby on This Is Usmake it seem like Jack isn't out of the woods yet.
There are a lot of complications that can come from having a baby weeks ahead of schedule. Little Jack, Jr. will likely have to stay at the hospital until he's strong enough to survive without round-the-clock care. But he's not the only one in danger. All this stress could put a strain on Kate and Toby, too. In the preview for tonight's episode, "Don't Take My Sunshine Away," Toby seemed especially overwhelmed by all of his anxieties about Jack.
These fan theories try to figure out what the next step in the story will be. There are many ways This Is Us could explore the tension and fear Kate and Toby are dealing with, as well as the impact their situation will have on the rest of the family. Some of these theories are decidedly tragic, but that doesn't mean they're entirely implausible.
