'A Million Little Things' Episode 9: PJ's suffering pushes Delilah to come clean with her kids about the affair

Spoiler alert for Season 2 fall finale of 'A Million Little Things' titled 'Time Stands Still'

We must say the fall finale of season 2 of 'A Million Little Things' is perhaps the best one so far. Everything that looked and felt in disarray throughout the season now seems to have somehow and somewhat fallen in place.

Season 2 concentrated on PJ's (Chandler Riggs) parentage, his link with Jon (Ron Livingston), and Delilah (Stephanie Szostak) and Eddie's (David Giuntoli) child born out of their affair. In the last few episodes, Eddie and Katherine (Grace Park) had been pursuing Delilah to make the official changes and declare Charlie his daughter. This meant that she would have to come clean with her kids about the affair; exactly why she was refusing it in the first place. 

But — and we think perhaps that was the intention throughout — PJ's quest to find his real father showed Delilah what Charlie's future could possibly be like if she doesn't tell the truth. 

After Rome's (Romany Malco) mother's funeral, PJ accidentally finds the results of the DNA tests under Rome's bed. Upon discovering that he is a ~99 percent to the sample, PJ is livid. He always felt like Mitch (Rhys Coiro) is not his father, but he couldn't fathom the fact that his parents lied to him all his life. Depressed, frustrated, angry and feeling betrayed, PJ goes on the rooftop with Rome following in quick succession. In no time, their conversation escalates and PJ steps up o jump off the terrace. 

A very nervous Rome refuses to leave PJ's side on top of that terrace. Having lived through and survived the most difficult part of his life, Rome knows how delicate the situation is — one wrong thing said and PJ would have jumped. Rome tells PJ that he's now family and mustn't feel alone. This is a very heartwarming scene yet strong enough to keep you at the edge of the seat. 


When Delilah witness PJ's pain and suffering, she knows at once what the right thing to do is — to tell her kids the truth about Charlie's real father and come out with the affair. She sees what Charlie could go through if she lives all her life with the lie that her father is dead when in reality, he is very much alive and well. 

'A Million Little Things' will return in 2020.
