This Is Us broke our hearts with the revelation that Jack is dead in the present day, but in the past, he continues to be the world’s greatest father.
The official synopsis from NBC for This Is Us Season 1 Episode 6 is, “Kate interviews for a new job that seems just about perfect, although it comes with a catch. Randall doubts his career choice and wonders if he followed the right path. Kevin and Olivia’s relationship moves in a new direction. Rebecca and Jack are conflicted on what to do when Randall tests as a gifted child.”
What happened to these kids on career day?
Randall spent his entire life being different, and not just from his skin color. He’s extraordinarily smart, which explains why he’s such a rich man in the future.
As for Kate, well, she’s still looking for her career. What does she want to do? All she knows how to do is take care of others, like her brother, but she never stops to take care of herself. With her journey into weight loss and self-confidence, hopefully she’ll start to realize she has to find herself before she can truly be happy.
Being called “the fat one” at her job interview can’t be easy, though, but it looks like that girl may have some problems of her own that Kate can help with, if not they’ll learn something from each other.
Kevin. Poor Kevin. What is he doing? He’s such a deeper man than the not-so-smart, mediocre actor that they’ve presented him as, as seen by his painting and the meaning behind it. He’s going on a date with his co-star, which is such a Kevin thing to do, and hopefully he’ll learn to stop self-sabotaging and doubting. His own doubts have created most of his issues.
This Is Us continues to pull at at our hearts, and let’s us hope it doesn’t end soon. We’re all masochistic for the way we love how this series makes us cry every week.
This Is Us airs on Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
