During the flashback to Teenage Kate, when she opens the nightstand drawer after her mom leaves the room, the box is an ovulation test, not a pregnancy test kit.

Sloppy filming

I caught that too. How hard is it to get the right thing?

I wonder what Marc thought of Kate when she confronted him in the present. I thought he would have said something about how big she got, because you know he was thinking it.

Like “Damn I broke you”


Pretty clear that it did. She’s enormous.


Kevin is too awesome to stop acting in order to shack up with a quasi-crazy OT 5. Right?

re: This is Us Season 5 thread
Madison is being an unreasonable count. I was annoyed the entire episode at her. Didn’t like her trying to force Kevin to choose between acting /raising a good all American family .

Occasionally traveling around with a nanny to filming locations isn’t the worst life to lead. And it would be much much better than her struggling at poverty level to provide for 2 twins with No support like she thought she would

Kate- glad she told that dead beat off . Good for her . I rarely like anything her character does

The could have had the ex boyfriend say something like, "Damn! you got big!" or at the very least when she was waddling away yell "You big cow!" That would've increased his D-baggery, but they can't do that, because that would imply there is something wrong with weighing a metric ton.

IRL: The actress dropped 100 lbs and has to wear a fat suit, but before you get too excited she is still pushing 3 bills.

FWIW, the This Is Us producers have said on FB that due to distance working of the editing team, production staff, etc, the ovulation test box wasn't supposed to be in the drawer shot. They copped to that being a continuity mistake, because it was the only test they could find.

This is cut from an interview she gave.

On Her Childhood:
Metz spent her childhood Gainesville, Florida, with her mother, stepfather, and four siblings. "There were nights my mom wouldn’t eat dinner," she told Glamour last year. "I knew she was giving up food to make sure we could eat, but when you’re 9 or 10 years old, you can’t help. It was devastating. In retrospect I think that’s why food equals love in my family. It’s the way we showed love — my grandmother would make me a grilled cheese sandwich every time she'd pick me up from school. I really valued that attention. As I got older, that turned into, 'Oh, I’m happy — let’s celebrate and eat. I’m sad? Let me eat my feelings.'"

I'm always annoyed at Madison. She's way to whiny for me. It's not like she didn't know Kevin was an actor. Geez. I'm thrilled with this development because I am still Team Sophie and don't want Kev with Madison.

Agreed. I'm sure this will be the beginning of her "healing" and she will become happier and maybe thinner.

So her mom clearly died of starvation...

re: This is Us Season 5 thread
Decent episodes giving Randall some closure about his birth mom

But what I’m more interested in Kevin apparently getting into a wreck driving like a bat out of hell from Vancouver trying to get to L.A. for the birth of their kids .

Is Hai (sp?) Vietnamese? Would be interesting to see if they’re gonna connect him to Jack being out there with the army somehow

Who knew Randall is half NOLA

It was okay. I feel like they’re reaching. I continue to lose interest.

Me too. The wife and I still watch it, but man, it's becoming a chore. None of the characters can be happy for more than an episode before writer drama throws them another turd to deal with.

And the end of last night's episode, when Randall swam out and had the vision of his mother in the water, was fricking creepy. That actress looked like some creature from the black lagoon about to drown and eat his ass.

It was supposed to be touching and poignant, but it was equal parts creepy and contrived. I kinda wanted her to grow massive teeth like Penny Wise, dunk him, and take a big bite out of his head.

We also watch A Million Little Things. This is Us used to be our favorite of the two. That's changed for both of us. I think it's time to wrap up TiU with Kate dying of a massive heart attack and diabeetus, Randall and Kevin resolving their differences and having happy home lives, and Miguel and Toby finally telling the lot of them that They're sick of being treated like a supporting characters.

Hopefully he was driving to the airport. It would be stupid to drive all the way to LA.

I loved the scream. I hated the appearance of Laurel. It was weird him totally having a conservation and touching her. It should have more been him thinking and then the scream. Just weird.

I want it to end with them all happy other than the fact that they are at Rebecca's deathbed. Miguel and Toby are supporting characters. The show is about the Big 3 and not anyone else.

All I care about it Kevin not ending up with Madison. I'm hoping she dies in childbirth!
