It beautifully presents a shared narrative that has until now been internalized: Randall on Jack, Kevin on Jack, Randall on William, and Jack on his dad. We also see how their pain has affected the women in their lives.

I'm definitely convinced that things are going to be totally fine for the growing Pearsons.
This week's This Is Us draws parallels both heartwarming and more-than-vaguely troubling between the modern Pearson family and its forebears.
