I noticed that when they showed up at the first adoption hearing, Rebecca was holding Randall & Jack was holding Kate, ignoring Kevin until he started whining - the story of his life.  Bizarrely, the babies looked like they were younger at the last hearing than they were at the first one, making me wonder if the original plan was for a quick, sweet & smiley adoption overseen by the lady judge, but TPTB decided to add more drama with the male judge who kept putting it off.  In a series full of flashbacks, having the babies get younger as time passed was confusing.

I liked the episode.  It was nice that they showed the 2 judges at the end pondering if they made the right decision.  They changed the course of Randall’s life.  Younger William actor plays pitiful so well.  I teared up when he got the second chance by the judge then again when Randall showed up stopping him from doing the drugs.


I knew she would and liked that Rebecca acted like a mama bear about Randall to the judge.


It was cute how young Kevin gave his candy to the boy to hold hands with Kate.  (Never saw that irl)


Coincidences are a staple of this show but I like how stories tie together.

The Inquisitr:  This Is Us Spoilers TV

November 10, 2017

Mandy Moore Says ‘This Is Us’ Is About To Get Really Dark, Warns Fans Of Heavy
Episode Trilogy

Mandy Moore has a warning for This Is Us fans. The actress, who plays matriarch
Rebecca Pearson on NBC’s hit drama series, says the next three episodes of the
show will get darker as the focus shifts to each of the Pearson siblings and their
pasts.

The next three episodes of This Is Us will each revolve around one of The Big
Three—Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Randall (Sterling K, Brown).
The episodes, titled “Number One,” “Number Two,” and “Number Three” will heavily
feature the characters’ teen counterparts, played by Logan Shroyer, Hannah Zeile
and Niles Fitch, respectively. But because the Big Three’s teen years was also the era
that their dad, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), passed away, viewers will experience the
family’s dark times in the flashback sequences.

“There’s darkness coming,” Moore told E! News of the upcoming This Is Us
episodes.  “The next three episodes are sort of a trilogy of sorts and they go to
some deeply darkly places.”  Mandy Moore revealed that viewers will likely have
"lot of opinions about” the three episodes, and asked that fans just be patient,
hinting there will be “bigger payoffs later” this season.  "I would just suggest that
people be patient,” Mandy said. “It will all unfold in a spectacular way, and I don’t
think people will be disappointed.”

In an interview with People, Mandy Moore admitted she had to prepare herself for
some of the “heavy” episodes that are coming up.  “I’m scared about the rest of the
season because I know we have some real heavy moments coming up this season
that need to be addressed in regard to [Jack’s] passing, so I’m trying to prepare my-
self for that,” the This Is Us star said.

This Is Us fans have been clamoring for more clues on how Jack died ever since it
was revealed mid-last season that the character is not alive in the present day. Jack
is only seen in flashbacks through the late 1990s, and his wife has married his best
friend, Miguel (Jon Huertas). The Season 2 premiere ended with Rebecca pulling up
to a burnt-out Pearson family home with her husband’s personal belongings on the
seat beside her as she let out an agonizing wail.

Moore revealed that shooting the scene that depicted the aftermath of the house fire
was a surreal experience. This Is Us producers built a facade of the Pearson’s house
and then burned it, but Mandy didn’t see the set before filming the scene. When the
actress pulled up to the burnt-out house for the scene, it was actually the first time
she had ever seen the burnt remains of the Pearson’s family home.

“My reaction of seeing the house for the first time was my genuine reaction to seeing
it for the first time,” Moore told People. “I really didn’t take a peek before the camera
was rolling. So it wasn’t super difficult to get into that frame of mind and tap into that
raw emotion.”

Based on Mandy Moore’s hints about the upcoming episodes of This Is Us, it sounds like
viewers won’t have any problem tapping into raw emotions either.

Since I've only been reading instead of watching, I don't think any of this has shown
yet.

Interesting. 

I'm only reading the recaps as well.  I just can't get into it this year.

Sorry, but I don't want it to get 'dark.'  I watch for entertainment, and if it includes some 'darkness', then I'm ok.  But 3 or 4 episodes in a row?  I don't think so.

I agree, it doesn't sound entertaining. But I'll give it a shot. They've got a story to tell.

I liked this episode and thought it was better than the last one.  Even Toby, whom I don't especially care for, didn't get on my nerves.
I loved the way the 2 judges were tied together at the end and also how Randall made the decision to let his foster child (Daysha sp?) have contact with her mother based on his own recollections having to do with his birth father and bio parents.  I actually shed a tear!

I watch this program, out of habit.  Everyone seems to love it, and I can't seem to care.  Watched it for Kevin, Adam on y and r, but he is underused and not very effective.  I don't like the people in it, except for Randall.  Most days I think what's the big deal?  And still I watch.  Sometimes, I wonder why.

I think her name is Déjà, but certainly hope she does not turn out to be déjà vu, exactly like her mother. Toby was almost tolerable when talking to Jack's urn, but I thought the XXXXL T-shirts were a stupid way to tell Kevin about the baby, especially since they already announced it to a bunch of strangers in a bar.  Since she isn't even 3 mos pregnant, I suspect one of the "dark" things will be losing the baby (or twins or triplets to increase the tear-jerking arc).

I think the "dark stuff" is in flashbacks, showing how each of the 3 kids struggled after Jack died. I don't think the dark stuff means that Kate is going to lose her baby.

I figured when Kevin didn't read the text from Toby it was about the baby.

Luckily the Nov 14th episode was not really that dark, just explaining how Kevin got his bad knee and wrecked his life.

Kevin is pathetic. I hope he can get it together.
