The Tuesday, October 17, episode of This Is Us played out like any other, but the seemingly normal outing was building up to a shocking reveal.
The show lacked some grit in telling this story.
The start of new life feels like like a very positive thing for Kate, who remarks to her doctor that she's very aware of how her age and her weight can complicate matters.
