Parenthood‘s series finale is airing tonight on NBC and everyone is wondering if some of the major questions left in the show will be answered.
Warning: don’t keep reading if you aren’t caught up on Parenthood!
One major question is: what will happen with Zeek? This entire season he’s been stricken with health problems, which involved him having major heart surgery earlier in the season. In the last episode, Zeek told his wife Camille that he had decided not to have major heart surgery that could potentially help his issues. “I think Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) is at a moment in his life where he’s considering all those things,” showrunner Jason Katims said (via The Wrap). “He’s thinking about his own mortality. He’s starting to take stock of his life. I think the great thing about this character is that he continues to make it not about himself but about wanting to be there for his family.”
Another huge question is: what will happen with Amber (Mae Whitman) now that she is a mom? Will she contact Ryan? Amber gave birth to her son, Zeek Jr., in the last episode. Earlier that same episode, Amber expressed to her mom that she was nervous about taking on motherhood alone.
“In the finale, she’s dealing with a lot more than whether Ryan is going to be in her life,” Jason said. “Right now she’s very much on her own and dealing with having a newborn baby and lots of sleepless nights. Her apartment is not a perfect place to live, and she’s losing her job. In the final episode she’ll be leaning on her mom (Lauren Graham) and her family to help her.”
We’re also curious to know what is next for Adam and Crosby, as well as what is in store for Julia and Joel. And lets not forget – Sarah is getting married to Hank in tonight’s ep!
