In the last episode, Kevin finds himself knee deep in a love triangle that becomes just one by the end of the show because Kevin doesn’t know how to talk to women. Kate and Toby decide to get married after his heart surgery is a success. Randall struggles with the fact that his father would rather spend time with his boyfriend then with him.

The time is finally upon us. We finally get to the ‘Big Day’. We see what happens the day that the Big Three was born. Starts off with the happy couple and includes what happened with the man who delivered the babies and Joe (the man who found Randall). The entire show is in the past but it does paint the picture of Rebecca’s and Jack’s relationship as they jumped into being parents.

Rebecca is struggling with the pregnancy and by struggle I mean she becomes a monster. She even admits it when she realizes that she spent the morning of Jack’s birthday yelling at him rather then remembering it. When she finally does remember she makes it up to Jack as she realizes that Jack is going to be a great parents and she admits to her kids that she is going to make a lot of mistakes.

Dr. Katowsky is struggling with the loss of his wife and tries to move on. It’s not an easy feat considering how long he’s been married. While his son is trying to help his dad out by helping him move on, it only makes it worse because he doesn’t want to move on. It’s only until after he delivers the babies that he sees that he should try and not hold back his life.

The man responsible for finding and saving Randall has struggles at home as his marriage is falling apart. He tries to keep Randall in hopes to save his marriage but it only causes more problems.

In the next episode, Kevin fights for the girl that he wants (of course we don’t see who) while Kate finds that she might have another love interest at a camp.
