This Is Us continues to start the season off on a quieter note, which is oftentimes when the show finds its most beautiful character moments.
It is also worth mentioning the realness that is felt throughout Kate and Rebecca's moment during the IVF scene. It's a scene you rarely see on television and honestly, it's only something that couples going through it know and understand.
It is this kind of groundwork in these episode arcs that allows for the show to form lasting bonds with the audience -- bonds that keep people entertained even if the episode is on the bleaker side.
Fortunately, Kevin is used to being treated as an afterthought and was incredibly mature throughout the entire episode.
The shocking thing about the episode is that none of the other Pearsons even realized how or why that would be hurtful. They need to check their privilege, though, because Randall wouldn't do that to any of them.
There's no update on "her" and no info on 1970s Rebecca's mystery man in this week's This Is Us, but there is a huge reminder that Randall has spent his whole life trying to find his place.
It's one of those well-observed, low-key, character-driven episodes that This Is Us doesn't get enough credit for. You won't find any twists or intense tear-jerking scenes here. It's for the best.
We are most definitely embarking on a "be careful what you wish for" situation with This Is Us.
Can't we have just one Pearson family gathering in peace? No, of course not. If we did, it wouldn't be "This Is Us."
