Brothers & Sisters Spoilers: Season Finale to Leave Multiple Major Characters in Jeopardy

by at . Comments

So you know how Rob Lowe is leaving Brothers & Sisters?

You know how his character has a history of heart problems?

You know how in last Sunday's episode, those same heart problems ultimately the retiring U.S. Senator that top secret Washington, D.C., job he was so keen on taking?

Well, much as this seemed to be setting us up for Robert McAllister's seemingly inevitable season finale heart attack, it looks like it may be just one piece of the puzzle.

In the season finale, there will be a shocker so monumental, E! Online reports, it will leave multiple major characters hanging in the balance, according to solid sources.

That's right, multiple major characters.

Kitty and Robert Pic

The McAllisters' fates aren't the only ones hanging in the balance.

Here's the deal: Saul (Ron Rifkin), Rebecca (Emily VanCamp) and Justin (Dave Annable) all will have news that may mean we'll see less of them on the show next season.

That's not even the monumental, shocking part of it all, either. The cliffhanger ending is being called an event that will leave you breathless and no one will see it coming.

That's a lot of hype, but someone we don't put it past the show, which somehow makes over-the-top, often-soapy plot lines work thanks to the Brothers & Sisters cast.

There is, of course, more to this than edge-of-your-seat storytelling. We might not see every actor in every episode next season due to budgets and contract negotiations.

The details of next season are still being sorted out.

As for Robert McAllister, Rob Lowe has asked for his character to die. Whether that wish is granted is unclear, as is how it ties into the rest of the season finale.

Thoughts, theories and criticisms are welcome!

    Sorry to burst everyones bubble but heres what happens, the whole family is in a multiple vehicle car accident, Robert and Holly are severely hurt, it looks like Robert dies, Saul has Aids, that pretty much sums it up.

    It does not make sense that Robert was in the car crash, he was not @ Ojai, he was at the event. the entire family drives up to the crash after leaving the building. Kitty is riding with Uncle Saul, and Sarah and Luke were in another car, Luke is one of the character's that is not being renwewed. I think they will write Uncle Saul and Luke off, Sarah will have a breakdown sending the kids to stay with Joe, after the accident and Sauls funeral Rebecca will decide life is too short and decide she and Justin need to go help in Haiti, meanwhile she convinces her new job to give Holly the position. Nora will still be muddling in Narrow Lake and Williams mess, she will build the home for herself. Tommy will return to Seattle. Kitty will walk away from the election, Robert will put his bid back into the election and have a heart attack and die. Next season will be focused on Kevin and Scotty and the arrival of the new baby, they will team up with Nora in turning the Ojai building into lofts it will benifit everyone, giving Kevin and Scotty a larger loft with plenty of room for the baby. the sale and or renting of the other lofts will be a greater profits to the Walkers. The season will be lame and most likely the finale for Brother's and Sister's.

    York knew that Kevin didn't know because Nora was still paying Aaron..Robert dies in the car crash!?? What's up with Narrow Lake? Justin and Rebecca just need to call it quits they fight more than anything and to me the relationship is still oogy.. Justin needs tons of therapy he's too confused... And in the preview, it sounds like someone is saying "Luc" Can't wait for next week!!

    I think the obvious will be heart attack --- I think he will be killed on his international mission [war]

    I hope he dies. It would stir things up and possibly create new and interesting plots.
    Unlike that York's plot. Seriously, to me that is by far one of the worst plots in B&S. It doesn't even make sense to the story. As far as I remember, York was out of the Walker's life much before William died (it was never really clear what was the terrible thing William did to him). So, how did York know that Kevin was unaware of the accident with Aaron? How did he know that Nora kept the secret for over 25 years? Not to mention, please is that really something that can destroy a family? Or even something you can use to blackmail someone? It is not even like they did something illegal. If they wanted York to blackmail Nora, they could've given him a better story.
    And oh, PLEASE UPDATE THE ROUND TABLE!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think that something happens at one of Kitty's speeches or fundraisers. It kind of has the feeling that the season finale of the west wing 1st season. If Robert doesn't die in the season finale then that leads me to believe that it might come to a Robert and Kitty separation or maybe he's thrown in prision for his interactions with the people who prevented him from getting the job in intelligence. I personally am hoping that Robert dies in heroic fashion.

I'm thinking that Justin re-enlists in the military I mean that would make sense. If Robert doesn't die in the season finale then that leads me to believe that it might come to a Robert and Kitty separation or maybe he's thrown in prision for his interactions with the people who prevented him from getting the job in intelligence.

    Oh, can't believe Rob is leaving the show. Sad news :( He is one of my favorite characters.

    Earthquake? Also, it's irritating if we'll see even less of Saul next season. The writers bravely gave him a late-in-life coming out plotline, but it seems like the network won't allow them to follow through and give him an actual relationship. Too bad, since Ron Rifkin would do an amazing job with that story, and his talents are generally underused on B&S.
