Chrissy Metz That’s right rips: The secret from Kate’s past that we learned this week this is us Difficult, and it definitely helps us understand why Jack and Rebecca’s daughter turned to food as a coping mechanism.
Plus, Kevin goes through a tough week trying to convince a new director (I have thoughts about him, but we’ll get to that in a minute), and Randall inadvertently becomes fine, fiiiiine A viral sensation thanks to Malik … it ends up getting us a little closer to solving the season’s first puzzle: Is Laurel still alive?
Read on to find out about “Honestly” highlights.
Go to the heck sleeping | Let’s start with the flashwayback, which chronicles the era when Rebecca and Jack have to train little Kevin to sleep so he will sleep through the night. As is often the case, the process is tedious and filled with crying on all sides. But Jack insists their son needs to learn how to get over it on his own, despite Rebecca protesting that he needs it. Finally, as she was about to enter his room and stop shouting, Kevin gave up. Sleep Training Success!
GRIDIRON objectives | We’re now skipping ahead when the Big Three is in middle school, and Coach Kevin thinks he could be a great thing if he just made his commitment and commitment – including learning the rules of the game. This time, Rebecca pulls Jack aside and worries that all the weightlifting, exercise, and soccer prepping is straining their son, Jack agrees … but says it’s worth it if the burnout is something Kevin loves. However, Rebecca is about to let Kevin quit – prompting Jack to tell her that she has made him a little “soft” (ugh) – when she notices how he’s working with Randall on a study system that will help him learn the plays.
Atta boy | Presently, Kevin arrives on the sound stage to meet him A glass eye He co-starred with Ava (played by Country of loveFerocious fox Jimmy Chung) And project director Jordan Martin Foster, who immediately became my enemy when he ordered Kevin to refer to their project as a “movie” rather than a “movie.” As they run the script, Foster presses Eva but he’s too cold for Kevin. After that, Kevin pulls the director aside and wonders what he can do to improve things. Jordan told him, “I didn’t realize you were the type to need an” Atta Boy, “adding very openly about Kevin as a good actor but who could be a great actor.
Rather than being like “whatever,” Kevin and his cute history takes the comment seriously. That night, he used Randall’s color-coded flashcard system to learn the film’s script. Foster sent him an Atta Boy gift basket, so … cool?
The agonizing past of Kate | Kate accompanies Elle to her ultrasound and mistakenly refers to the baby as Chloe, aka the name she would like to give the baby if the adoption continues. When Elle has hardened, this is clearly a sore spot for her. So Kate apologized outside, and Elle told her that her high school classmate who tried to keep her broken husband / eventually out of her dating her was named Chloe. After that, she admitted that she was really mired in pregnancy and almost miscarried earlier in the year. “For me, it wasn’t the right choice,” she says, adding that she had other thoughts about her entire life – with the exception of Toby and Kate.
Later that night, Ellie’s discovery prompted Kate to tell Toby something she had previously hidden: As a teenager, after she and Mark separated, she realized she was pregnant.
All Half | As part of the civics mission, Malik Shadow Randall remained in business. His Big Mission: Run the regular Randall newscast live online with voters. All went well until Malik’s mother called the end of the broadcast, and the teen was busy with her questions about Janelle’s dental problems. So Malik shrugs off turning off the livestream after Randall stops talking – though Randall is unaware of that fact. swallowing. A city councilor performs his next task, aka changing him to start running, so anyone who watches him without his shirt is dealt with goofy dancing as he removes his shirt and folds it.
At home, Deja and Tess watches, and they start to panic. In the end, Deja reached Malik, and immediately stopped the broadcast. He apologizes very much and makes Randall understand how focused he is on Janelle, and how he has big plans that will allow her to have a wonderful life of her own. Randall is so impressed that he ended up hiring Malik as City Hall’s coach.
Jaewon later calls: his foundational post goes viral. And when the living grandfather clicks on the boat we met on the season premiere, he’s less focused on Randall’s muscles and more interested in Randall’s mention of his father. William Hill’s name clearly rings a bell for him, which brings us a little closer to knowing where Laurel is.
