Cassidy (Jennifer Morrison) was stationed in the Middle East before returning to her family in Pennsylvania. Despite her safe arrival home, it’s clear her time as a soldier took its toll. She began drinking, struggled to find a job and hit her son, much to her surprise, after learning the price of a water heater. While Cassie was detailing all of this during a meeting with Veterans Affairs, Nicky Pearson (Griffin Dunne) threw a chair through the window and got arrested.
So either Nicky is Cassidy's dad or she's Kevin's future wife/baby mama. #ThisIsUs

Fans are already head over heels for Malik (Asante Blackk), who seemingly has a good head on his shoulders despite being a junior in high school and a father to a baby girl. The teen, who has a summer job, was invited to a friend’s BBQ — which he initially turned down — because he needed to care for his child. Luckily, his dad was nice enough to offer to babysit, and it’s there that he meets Deja.
So Cassidy is connected to Nicky and probably will be connected to Kevin at some point, Malik is gonna be dating Deja (the brain aneurism R&B are gonna have when they find out about the baby) and Baby Jack grows up to be a rockstar. Wow. #ThisIsUs

At the very end of the episode, it’s revealed that the blind man (Blake Stadnik, the actor who plays him, has Stargardt disease and is visually impaired) is Kate and Toby’s son. His life changed for the better after a broken plate led him to a cafe, where he met his future wife. He was a struggling artist when the two first met but grew up to have a thriving music career, a gorgeous partner and a baby on the way.
