Warning! Spoilers ahead for A Million Little Things Season 2 finale, called “’Til Death Do Us Part.”
A Million Little Things Season 2 concluded with a major, and possibly game-changing, cliffhanger. The finale began with some happy news, but that didn’t last long as Rome and Regina coped with the fact that they wouldn’t be bringing home the baby they’d always wanted. That wasn’t the biggest shocker of all, because Eddie’s storyline took a tragic turn in the episode’s final moments. However, David Giuntoli recently explained why A Million Little Things fans shouldn’t worry after the Season 2 finale cliffhanger.
The series wasn’t about to let Eddie get his happy ending. While he and Katherine were all set to renew their vows, their nuptials were interrupted. With the wedding on pause, Eddie discovered that he was at his family’s lake house when Alex drowned and he had every intention of telling Katherine the truth. Unfortunately, he never got there and was hit by a car on his way home. Now, fans are wondering whether or not Eddie actually survived the crash. David Giuntoli had a hopeful message to assuage any fears about Eddie’s fate. Here’s what he told TVGuide:
A Million Little Things is a show about family and relationships that are so strong that throughout any tragedy the relationships will hold up. People will be there to support each other. So don't worry about either Eddie, or Katherine, or Theo, or any of these friends. They can get through almost anything, as long as they're together.
Soothing words can only go so far, though, because David Giuntoli makes it clear throughout the interview that he isn’t too sure about whether Eddie will live or die, either. That car crash looked fatal, but he could also be in a coma, so the scale could realistically tip either way at this point.
While David Giuntoli joked that he’d like to know Eddie’s fate to better prepare his finances, A Million Little Things showrunner DJ Nash had more of a concrete answer regarding the actor’s future with the show. Speaking with Hollywood Life, Nash wouldn’t confirm or deny whether Eddie was actually dead, but he had some good news. In his words:
I think there is a possibility. I’m not saying he is dead. I’m saying that the uncertainty of life has never been more present in the world than it is right now. Maybe that’s sort of what we’re capturing with our friend. One thing to say about that, though, is whatever happens to Eddie, for the sake of the David Giuntoli trust fund, Jon died in the cold open. Ron [Livingston] is still very much a part of our show. He was part of one of our best episodes of this season. David Giuntoli is very much still part of our series, regardless of what happens to Eddie. What I’m saying is he’s not available for pilots.
A Million Little Things hasn’t officially been renewed for Season 3 yet, but stay tuned to CinemaBlend for updates. In the meantime, be sure to check out our midseason schedule for more on what to watch.
