The actress opened up and spoke candidly about the suspicious scene that hinted the fans about her character's death.


During the Season 2 finale of NBC's This Is Us, fans got a big scare because of a mysterious flash-forward scene.

The section revealed an adult-version of Tess, played by Iantha Richardson, and Randall, played by Sterling K. Brown, speaking without any sign of Beth, played by Susan Kelechi Watson.

This led fans to come up with several theories, the scariest one of all was that Beth might be killed off in the future episodes of the series.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the speculation was so much convincing that it got all the fans talking all about it on the internet.


Watson, however, was surprised when the theory reached her. "I didn't know that I was going to die," Watson told Entertainment Weekly.

She further explained, “It didn’t even cross my mind, so when I saw people tweeting about it, writing articles about it, I was like, ‘Oh, they’re kidding!’ My first thought was, ‘Oh, this is hilarious.'"

But soon people started taking it seriously, so much so that even the actress' own mother was convinced that the show was about to kill off her daughter's character.

She was so much convinced that she warned her daughter that she would stop watching the show.


“My mom was like, ‘I’m not going to watch this show next season,'” Watson told Entertainment Weekly. “I was like, ‘Why?’ She’s like, ‘Because they’re going to kill you, and I don’t like it.’"

However, Watson consoled her mother by saying that the show was not going to kill off her character. She explained that she already had a talk with the creator of the show, Dan Fogelman, and could confirm that Beth was not going to die.

Watson's consolation to her mother should also come as a big relief to her fans who are worried about their favorite character.
