Critic Reviews for Number Two

The Kate-centric "Number Two" ... deepened our understanding of Kate and Rebecca's relationship via flashbacks.

[Kate's perspective] gives the episode a sense of immediacy, and it's honestly such an exquisite thing to see from an editing standpoint.

But even though "Number Two" turns out to be a far more hopeful episode of television than the Kevin-centric installment that precedes it, I can't help but long for the levity that some of those silly Pearson Thanksgiving traditions would've brought.

While the decade-spanning exploration is painful, it's also classic This Is Us.

It's an emotional installment, but at least the ending of "Number One" gave us an idea of what we'd be in for.

"Number Two" has its own moments that completely gut you, but it ends on a hopeful note. That's not a typo!

Even more so than depictions of miscarriages, Rebecca and Kate's conversation truly feels like nothing I've seen on TV before.
