After a break from This Is Us on NBC, we were back and the first ten minutes gave us so many details, it was messing with my mind! We were all wondering if Toby died or not from his heart attack on This Is Us Season 1? We got those answers and saw The Big Three all become hot messes, as their lives are not in a normal place right now. Check out all the details from “The Right Thing To Do” below in our This Is Us on NBC Recap!
Last time on This Is Us Season 1, we had the Fall Finale and it was Christmas time! We saw some interesting new twists added to the mix, as William appears to have had a boyfriend in his life that reappeared at an NA meeting. Jesse came back to the house to spend the holiday with William and the family! Then Kevin seemed to make things official with Sloane and they will be trying to the play again, but with Sloane as the lead. The big shocker was Toby coming to surprise Kate and telling her he can’t be without her, but then having a heart attack to end the episode!
Warning: This post contains spoilers from This Is Us tonight on NBC, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happened!!!
We go way back to start, as we see Jack’s parents arguing and he interrupts them as a teenager. His dad was yelling at his mom and holding her against the wall. The dad leaves and his mom tells him to never be like his dad. Now we go back to Jack and Rebecca and she is pregnant and they are looking at an apartment, which he got for them! They are then in the doctor’s office and find out they are having triplets! The doctor goes into the break room and talks about having to tell parents they are having triplets and Dr. K is there and said glad they aren’t his patients!
We are then in the present and doctors and nurses running everywhere. Kate is looking for a room, so they show her and there is Toby! He had a heart attack, but he said it was just erythema and it sounds like a person dancing bad! He wants her to mount him on the bed, but she said no! He said he is tired, but he is fine.
Now we see Kevin and Sloane kissing and Beth and William are there. Kevin sends Sloane on her way and then he tries to explain things to Beth and William, but they don’t seem interested. We find out that William has always loved both men and women. Randall comes down and Kevin said his bio dad is only half-gay! Randall definitely seems weird about it all.
Back in the day, we see Jack & Rebecca at their new place. Rebecca is now figuring out they can’t live on the sixth floor of a two bedroom apartment with triplets. She is freaking, but he calms her down.
Now we see Beth & Randall talking and he doesn’t understand why hearing about Jesse makes him so uncomfortable and thinks he is homophobic. They have a good talk and Beth talks him down and gets him in that bathtub with her on This Is Us Season 1!
We now see Toby & Kate playing cards and he wants to play strip poker! The doctor comes in and there is a hole between two chambers of his heart and he wants to perform surgery, which Toby seems very scared of.
Back in the day, Jack gets to a house they are working on. He talks with his boss, who complains about things being bad with money. Jack then asks for a raise and he gets some, but it is not enough for triplets and what Jack wanted.
Kevin & Sloane are rehearsing the play. The director said he was very worried about directing an old sitcom star’s vanity project. However, they were great and it was raw. Kevin & Sloane are beyond excited about the news! Afterwards, Sloane is wondering what is going on with them and if they are just sleeping together. He said he doesn’t know what’s going on with them, but he is glad there is a “them” and to go with that. Then we hear Olivia come in and she says she is back!
Olivia has a new haircut. She said that what Kevin said really affected her and how she was inauthentic. She said she has done all of this stuff and found herself and she wants to be in the play and wants to be with him. Sloane said it is too late and her and Kevin are together. Then the director comes up and said he is so glad Olivia is back and they were dead in the water without her! Um, what happened to the raw play he just saw?
Back to Toby, as the doctor said he can get surgery done right away. Toby said he doesn’t want to do it and he can do the medication, but Kate said he needs to do it. This turns into an argument, but Kate leaves so she doesn’t upset a man with a heart condition.
Rebecca is out to lunch with her mother, who thinks smoking in front of her pregnant daughter is fine. She is snooty and doesn’t think Jack is good enough for Rebecca and now he got her pregnant with triplets. She said she has a fix for this problem.
Now we see Jesse come to pick up William, as Randall answers the door. He said Randall is still getting ready, so he has Jesse come in and get to know each other better. He offers him whiskey, which he soon figures out is a bad thing. Jesse jokes about meeting William on Tinder! Randall is nervous, but William comes down and they leave and William is spending the night with Jesse and might be back the next day, which Randall seems weird about.
Kate comes back to the room and Toby is going to do the surgery! He is freaking out, as he hates surgery and only has an hour until this happens. He said he is worried about Kate and she said he doesn’t have to be. He said he does because he loves her! They take him away.
Out in the waiting room, Kate is with Randall and Kevin and she is freaking out that Toby said he loved her and she didn’t say it back! She is freaking out now and wants her brothers to distract her. Randall tries a story from work, but Kate said no! Then Kevin tells the story about Olivia being back and now between Sloane and Olivia! Yeah, the Big Three are a hot mess right now, as they are all freaking out.
Rebecca is home from lunch with her mother, which said that it was judgmental! Rebecca said her mother suggested they move in with them for a year or two to save money. Jack thinks it is a joke at first, but asks if she wants her mother hanging over her all the time. Rebecca said she means well and it could be good for them, so want to keep an open mind about it all. Jack wants to know what she did with his wife, but then she asks for some ice cream and he said his wife is back! He leaves and she starts crying, but then he forgot his wallet and comes back and hears her crying! She covers it up and he acts like he didn’t hear her. Jack is out driving now and he goes up to a house, which happens to be his dad’s! His dad asks what he wants and Jack said he needs some money!
We now see Kevin talking to Olivia and he said he is keeping Sloane in the play, as she is good and she worked hard. Olivia then asked about them and Kevin said he is going to keep Sloane, as she is sweet and likes him and sometimes you need to do what is the right thing to do, even if it isn’t what you want! Um, what Kevin? Sloane overheard. Then Olivia leaves and Sloane comes out and Kevin asks her out for a drink, but Sloane said she is going to lay low that night because it is the right thing to do!
We see Toby out of surgery and sleeping in bed. Kate tells him that she loves him and would spend the rest of her life with him, if he wanted that. Toby then talks and said he has been up for an hour! He asked if she meant everything she said and she said yes. He said he would marry the hell out of her!
William comes back to Randall’s house and Randall questions how William can throw him and his family to the side. William said the cancer is taking over his body and he feels it. Jesse has been through this and has been helping him take care of things. William doesn’t want to put this on Randall or his family. Randall said this is his home now and he will be there. William said the meds are not helping and make him sick, so they agree to go off the chemo. Randall is very strong with this all, as I would be a huge mess!
Back to Jack, as his dad said he must be in a real jam if he came to him. Jack said he is in a tight spot and his dad asked if it is women or gambling or something else and Jack said gambling. His father said his mother was bad at everything also. Jack said his dad was right and he is never going to be good or amount to anything, but needs his help. His dad does give him some money. We then see Jack sell his car and get some money for it.
We then see Jack & Rebecca arrive at the money pit that he has been working on. As it turns out, he got enough money saved up to buy the house from his boss! He talks up the house to Rebecca and she thinks it is perfect!
