A Million Little Things Opening Scene: Does Katherine Learn the Truth?!

at .

One of the biggest cliffhangers on A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 17 was whether or not Eddie would tell Katherine the truth about Delilah (and his) baby. 

The two of them reached a place in their relationship where they wanted to work on their marriage and try again, but Eddie couldn't in good conscience reunite with his wife when he was holding another secret that could tear them apart. 

He's the father of Delilah's baby, not Jon.

As a diehard Million Things Fanatic, I couidn't wait to get all the juicy details, and the clip has us on the edge of our seats!

He says that it's something he needs to tell her, and then, he throws her for an emotional spin when he says, "it's not Jon's baby." 

Eddie rips the bandaid off, but it doesn't stop the sting. Even though Eddie is being honest with Katherine and telling her as gently and maturely as possible (that's growth, you guys!), it catches Katherine off guard.

She's the one who has to tell Eddie that his baby is on the way.

She's a strong, gracious, practical woman who has grown accustomed to compartmentalizing her feelings in an effort to "be the bigger person," and that has not changed.

"I don't know what I want you to do. I know what you need to do. You need to get to that hospital and be there for that baby the way that you weren't there for Theo," she tells him. 

Oof, that hurts!

A Million Little Things Quotes

PJ: You OK?
Rome: Yeah, no, I don't know.
 PJ: I don't know if this is helpful but when we were all out there and the minister was reading that prayer, the ashes to ashes dust to dust stuff, I was reminded of something I read once, that nothing lasts forever. That people we love sometimes leave our lives, but what stays is how they forever changed us. 
Rome: You're quoting my screenplay to me? 
PJ: Maybe. 

In every relationship, there is a flower and a gardener. And it sounds to me like you've been the gardener for a long time, but you need to tell Regina that you need to be a flower for a while.
