The theories are also running wild regarding all of the other hints that we've been given throughout the series, like how Kate told Toby it was her fault.

We've now seen that that dog has been brought home, and Kevin has broken his leg. So the next time we see this redheaded girl, get your tissues ready, because it's coming up.

One Redditor came up with a theory of when we, the viewers, will learn about Jack's death, and it makes all kinds of sense.
