Spoilers for 'A Million Little Things' Season 2 Episode 19 ''Til Death Do Us Part'

Just as fans had expected, the Season 2 finale of ABC's 'A Million Little Things' was an emotional wreck. Perhaps the saddest part about the episode was Rome and Regina Howard (Romany Malco and Christina Moses) being denied their baby.

After building toward it throughout the second half of Season 2, Rome and Regina's adoption process falls through as Eve (Ebboney Wilson) decides to keep the baby.

There were some complications during the birth of the baby and Eve had to be pushed into a C-section. The couple and their friends waited anxiously for the operation to go successfully only to find out that Eve had changed her mind.

She tried apologizing to them, but Regina wasn't having any of it and just left the room. Heartbroken, she couldn't even bring herself to look at Delilah's baby, Charlie.

Speaking of Delilah Dixon (Stephanie Szostak), it looks like she has suddenly stumbled upon love. After battling doubt, Delilah decided to give Miles (Parker Young) a chance and good for her, because he seems to be into her too.

However, in the finale, despite her feelings for him, Delilah cannot help but wonder why he would be interested in her because she is 10 years older to him. He could have any girl, why her, she asks. He tells her because he would rather spend his time with someone who is selfless and loving.

This seems like a stretch especially since the first half of the season had many calling Delilah out for being selfish by keeping mum about Charlie's parentage — that seems like such a long time ago now. If this was the writers' way of showing Delilah has come through a redemptive arc, it doesn't work.

Elsewhere, Gary Mendez (James Roday) decides to stay back in Boston with Darcy (Floriana Lima) instead of going to England with Maggie Bloom (Allison Miller), who had expressed her love for him in the finale. At first, he is calm, then he tells her everything he had bottled up over the course of their breakup.

A heartbroken Maggie leaves for the airport, where Gary catches up with her to apologize for earlier. Moving on from her was the most difficult thing he had done and now that he is finally over her, he tells her he can't come with her. He wants to stay here in Boston and see where things head with Darcy. 

And finally, towards the end of the episode, Eddie Saville (David Giuntoli) meets with an accident — a car hits him (and doesn't run, it stops) just as he is exiting a bar.

Let's back up a bit. On the day of his vow renewal with his wife Katherine (Grace Park), Eddie is restless and wants to find out what happened to Alex (Olivia Steele Falconer) those many nights ago at the lakehouse.

Several questions later and a cameo by Betsy Brandt as Colleen Stewart, Eddie returns to the lakehouse and remembers what happened.

Blaming himself for her death, Eddie, a recovering alcoholic, thinks he doesn't deserve any happiness and prosperity and enters a bar for a drink. But once there, he somehow realizes everything he has worked for over the decade and puts the glass down.

Calling Katherine, who had been trying to get in touch with him for a while now, he promises to tell her everything and that they will be doing their vow renewals tonight itself.

However, just as he walks out of the bar, he is hit by the car.  With no confirmation for Season 3 yet, the wait will be a long one. However, we can be assured that it didn't look like a major accident. Hopefully, Eddie will only have broken a leg or two.
