'A Million Little Things' Season 3 Episode 2 Preview: Who is old mysterious man that hit Eddie, made 911 call?
The rather old gentleman watches from a distance as the group of friends celebrate Eddie's return and their renewed marriage
Spoilers for 'A Million Little Things' Season 3 Episode 1 'hit & run'
The premiere episode of Season 3 of 'A Million Little Things' answered the most burning question that had left fans hanging since the show concluded Season 2 - is Eddie Saville (David Giuntoli) alive? As it turns out, Eddie is alive and well but is now confined to a wheelchair after the hit and run rendered his legs paralyzed. At the beginning of the episode, shortly after Eddie's accident, a man driving a red pick-up truck makes a desperate 911 call asking for help. When asked if the driver fled the scene, he responds yes and hangs up.
And then, a month later, just as Eddie is discharged from the hospital and returns home to a series of surprises - from making the home accessible around his disability to a small, intimate ceremony where Katherine (Grace Park) and he can finally renew their vows - the red pick-up truck shows up again. The rather old gentleman watches from a distance as the group of friends celebrate Eddie's return and their renewed marriage. This begs the question - who really is this man who hit him? Should we feel sorry for him because he regretted hitting Eddie and then made the 911 call?
We are placing our bets on Reverend Stewart, Alex's father. Played by Gerard Plunkett, a flashback shows how the Reverend saw Eddie exiting a bar and then ran him over - which is definitely not just an accident. Eddie's hit-and-run was on purpose even though he made the 911 call. But why did he hit Eddie at all? Well, fans of the ABC drama have to wait for two weeks before the show returns with it the second episode that will tell us more. Clearly, there is a lot more to the Alex-Eddie storyline than we had anticipated. In a short clip the network aired after the premiere episode, we can see Eddie having a hard time adjusting to his life after the accident.
Episode 2 of 'A Million Little Things' titled 'Writings on the Wall' will air on Thursday, December 3, 2020, at 10 pm on ABC.
