Prepare the tissues. The final episode of season 2 of NBC’s beloved drama This Is Us will end with a wedding between two main characters, Kate and Toby, with a special homage to one missing figure: Jack Pearson.

Leading up to the nuptials, actress Chrissy Metz—who plays Kate—has been teasing the ceremony and various wedding details, including a new adorable update on Tuesday ahead of the episode.

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” the Golden Globe-nominated actress, 37, wrote, alongside a photo of her nails and the script on Instagram. “When we were planning Kate’s wedding look, I knew I wanted to do something special. Honoring the beautiful relationship Jack and Kate always had, I decided to have his initials close to my heart.”

Metz paid tribute to the late family patriarch (played by Milo Ventimiglia) by painting “J” and “P” on her fingers. “The nail color was my something blue,” she wrote. “Just wait till you see what the something old might be! #katiegirl #thisisus #katoby2018. (We mixed @opi_products ‘It’s A Boy’ and ‘Funny Bunny’ to make this special light blue).”

For those expressing skepticism that the actual wedding will take place, Metz somewhat hinted that the vows will happen. “Stick around for the reception, it’ll be worth it,” she wrote in one Instagram update. “#katoby #icanhearthebells.”

How much do we love Toby?! Let us count the ways.💓 #katoby #thisisus
