Forky doesn't die, but ends up in a small town with Woody. There they encounter Bo Peep, now living in an antique shop. Bo tries to persuade Woody to let go of his life as a toy, arguing, "Who needs a kid's room when you can have all of this?"
Which kind of makes the whole thing seem like an allegory for ... well, death. Woody has to decide whether to shed his life's pursuit in favor of the easy living of this purgatorial town. Plus, this whole journey is kick-started by Forky's death wish, forcing Woody to grapple with a similar dilemma. Wouldn't it be easier to just give up being a toy? He remarks that he doesn't remember helping children being "this hard."
How does it wrap up? We'll have to wait and see. But if Pixar keeps layering on the pathos, we can probably look forward to Lightning McQueen battling whatever the car equivalent of an opioid addiction is.
