NBC’s “This Is Us” was back at it again last night, bringing on ALL the waterworks with the ups and downs of the episode.
After Kevin finds out that Kate and Toby are expecting a baby, he spirals even MORE than he already has been up to this point. He starts to panic about his life so, naturally, he buys not one but three engagement rings for Sophie– but he ends up kind of freaking out and being a total jerk to her, which in my humble opinion was NOT COOL, Kevin.
We also got a new look at Randall’s biological father’s story and what was happening in his life from when Randall was a baby to when he first made contact with him last season. We learn that a judge changed his life forever by giving him a second chance at “changing his story,” and that Randall arrived in his life just in time to save him from making a huge mistake. This went alongside Randall’s present-day events with Deja and the struggle with her biological mother who’s in jail– who we also got the chance to see and hear from. Again, waterworks.
As a cherry on top of the ice cream sundae of emotions, we see what Rebecca and Jack had to go through in order to officially adopt Randall and make them a part of their family– and it was an incredibly raw and moving portrayal of the adoption and court system.
Basically, this episode had everything that makes us love “This Is Us.”
