'A Million Little Things' Fans Should Be VERY Worried About Eddie Right Now
If there's one thing the writers of A Million Little Things know how to do, it's create a good mystery, and it seems like they're working overtime when it comes to Eddie Saville. By the end of the last season, he was busy untangling some foggy (and possibly incriminating) memories from his past when he found himself in an accident that may threaten his life. A lot happened to Eddie in A Million Little Things Season 2, so here's everything you need to know as you dive headfirst into Season 3.
Warning: Spoilers for Season 2 of A Million Little Things follow. Eddie (David Giuntoli) was actually doing pretty well for a lot of Season 2. All the secrets surrounding his affair with Delilah (Stephanie Szostak) were out in the open, and he and his wife Katherine (Grace Park) were ready to move forward into a new, healthy stage for their family with their son Theo (Tristan Byon). But, new mysteries emerged when Eddie's estranged sister Lindsey (Sprague Grayden) reappeared in his life.
Both Lindsey and Eddie have an alcohol use disorder, but both are sober now. As part of her sobriety, Lindsey was spending time reflecting on the past, including thinking about why their family stopped visiting their lake house. Eddie remembered they stopped going after someone named Alex Stewart died, and Lindsey hinted that there was more to the story...
Here's what fans (and Eddie) were able to piece together: Eddie had been drinking the night Alex died, so his memories are foggy. He learned he was the last person to see Alex alive, and that he may have played a part in her drowning.
In the Season 2 finale, Eddie and Katherine had decided to renew their vows, but Eddie realized he needed to clear his conscience about Alex before he could move forward. So, he went back to the lake house to try to get some more answers. When his trip there led him to believe the worst about his involvement in that night, he went out to a bar to get a drink. But at the last minute, he decided not to break his sobriety, and he instead left the bar, calling Katherine on his way out to tell him he loved her and was ready to renew their vows.
But basically as soon as Eddie stepped outside, he was struck by a car, leaving audiences with the biggest of cliffhangers as Season 2 came to a close.
Heading into Season 3, not only do fans still have to discover what really happened the night Alex died, but now there's also the mystery of Eddie's car accident. Series creator DJ Nash told Deadline, "The person driving the truck [that hit Eddie] is someone we saw before." Could that mean whoever hit Eddie did it on purpose?
The even bigger question for Eddie, though, is whether he will survive this accident. Nash hinted to TVLine that "Katherine and Theo’s life will never be the same" after it. So, no matter what Eddie's fate is, there are some big changes ahead for him and his family.
Season 3 of A Million Little Things premieres Thursday, Nov. 19, at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
