Who knew therapy could be so dang entertaining?
The midseason finale foreshadowed a kind of family reckoning, and "The Fifth Wheel" provides just that.
What fresh, incredibly well-acted hell is this, This Is Us? Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I wish the entire episode had stayed right in that cozy-looking group-therapy room at Kevin's swanky, court-ordered rehab facility.
Writer Vera Herbert pens a great sequence that both challenges what we know about the Pearsons and opens up a whole bunch of new storytelling avenues for the show. Unfortunately, the rest of the episode around it isn't quite as strong.
A big part of The Fifth Wheel is about the complexity of memory and shared memory.
Well, at least now we have confirmation on which son is Rebecca's favorite.
This was an intensely "real" episode - probably the most internal conflict we've seen among the Pearsons ever - so I don't want my eye-rolling at Kevin's perceived victimhood to be misinterpreted.
This episode really wrapped up a lot, but opened a lot of new cans of worms for the Pearsons as well.
They didn't have an perfect relationship, but as she admits to Kevin, they had their moments.
