Viewers get a chance to breathe with "Vegas, Baby," a satisfying trip down the lighter side of memory lane for the Pearsons.
As if Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) could be any more perfect, the show took us back in time to see how he surprised Rebecca (Mandy Moore) with big gestures for all their anniversaries.
Wasn't it a relief to see Jack alive and well and making us all feel inadequate? Don't get me wrong, lighter fare for This Is Us is still emotionally exhausting, but, like, in a fun and hopeful way!
"Vegas, Baby" is neither the best nor the worst episode in This Is Us history. But it does at least offer the novelty of a new setting and some new character pairings.
There's an interesting thread here between the Pearson siblings as kids and as adults: In the episode, we that they're blind to the desires and needs of those around them.
As happens to be the formula on This Is Us, things worked out, at least for the most part, by the end of the hour.
Vegas, Baby slows down with a lighter episode that struggles to feel organic.
After some much needed down time for healing, thanks to the Winter Olympics, we're back with a relatively easy-going episode to ease us back into PearsonLand.
Vegas, Baby provided some interesting insight as to how the Pearsons celebrate big events. And as usual, it was filled with some big time Pearson drama.
BETH IS A VEGAS ICON!
This is Us reshuffled its core relationships and introduced us to a new Big 3 we weren't expecting. In doing so, the episode peeled back even more layers from the characters we thought we knew.
Whatever aches in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
