We had a lot of things happening tonight on This Is Us Season 1, but it seemed to end with Kate maybe cheating on Toby! Yeah, don’t get me started on this one, as we are starting to see some tension between Jack and Rebecca also on This Is Us on NBC 2017! Check out all the details from “I Call Marriage” below in our This Is Us Season 1 Recap!
Last time on This Is Us on NBC 2017, we saw The Big Three celebrating birthdays over the years and Jack & Rebecca try to throw them each their own party for their tenth birthday. Jack talked to Rebecca about having another baby, but she was hesitant about it. We saw William feeling better than ever, as he is not doing chemo and on a high right now. He is trying to enjoy life, but Randall was so busy at work and struggling to spend time with him. Kate headed to fat camp and was struggling with being there, but had a breakthrough, as she flashed back to time with her dad and his funeral! We also saw one of the workers there hitting on her big time. Then we ended with a big shocker, as Kevin struggled choosing between Olivia and Sloan. However, he chose his ex-wif Sophie? Yeah, where did she come from???

We go back to Jack & Rebecca and it is their wedding day! Miguel gives a speech and is best man. We flash forward and Jack & Rebecca are getting ready to meet Miguel and his wife. We see Kate, who is looking a little older than normal, more of a teenager in the flashbacks. I guess the dinner is for Miguel and his wife to announce they are getting a divorce. Back at home, Jack can’t believe it and he said you find your soulmate and you make it work. Rebecca said sometimes people drift apart and she is not talking about them, even though Jack looks worried as they head to bed.
Now to the present, as Randall gets home and no one is around. He sees William at the piano and he is sleeping, but he goes up and he falls over! However, it is a dream and his daughter wakes him, as she peed the bed. They go downstairs and find their older daughter playing chess with William at 3am! She said she doesn’t have all the time in the world to play with him, so she is doing it now. William said she is right!
We see Kevin, as he shows up at a diner and talks to a couple about needing their booth. He explains all the reasons why and how much the booth means to him and Sophie, who is meeting him there. All the stories and touching moments, but the lady knows he was The Manny and wants an autograph! The couple leaves, as Sophie arrives! She yells at Kevin and said that is the only reason she is there, but then some fries come!
Back to the fat camp, as Kate is working out and then walking with a girl, as the horse guy walks by and said she is looking fine! Kate then gets some texts from Toby, as he tries on some tuxedos for the wedding. All of a sudden, Toby is there to surprise Kate and he wants to steal her away, but she said she can’t and they keep them on a tight schedule. He agrees and he doesn’t want to ruin this again for her.
Randall and Beth meet with a guy to discuss things with William and his death, which Randall is very testy about. He up and leaves, as he has work to do! At work, Randall is trying to close that deal and his boss tells him to do it with the new guy and they decide dinner tonight would be best, which Randall agrees to despite the chess tournament for his daughter.
Kevin and Sophie talk and she wants to know why now on This Is Us Season 1 and he said he has never stopped thinking about her. He said he wants to pick up where they left off, but she asked if he forgot where they did leave off? She leaves and he chases her down and it looks like he cheated on her and she said she doesn’t want to talk about this.
Now to the fat camp, as the horse guy, Duke, sees Toby and introduces himself and talks about the ladies being easy there and needing some loving. Toby said he is there to see Kate and the horse guy said this got awkward!
Back in the day, Jack is at work and sees Miguel flirting with a female employee. Jack comes in and asks her to leave and asks if Miguel had an affair with her. He doesn’t think people drift apart and there has to be a reason. Miguel goes on to explain it and they did drift apart and they stopped noticing each other and stopped trying to make each other happy. He said every couple has these moments and they are make or break moments for the couple.
Now Kate is at the club and singing. Afterwards, one of the band members asks if she is ok. He then tells her they got a gig out of town and Rebecca said she’ll check with Jack. The guy said if Jack loved her, he would understand. This sets Rebecca off, as she defends Jack and everything he has done to allow her to sing in the club. Yeah, don’t mess with Rebecca and the love between her and Jack!
Beth is talking with her daughters and she has a memory box from her father’s death. She is trying to prepare them, but Randall comes in and tells her to stop. He does not want to talk about death, but Beth said she is trying to prepare the girls, as no one prepared them for their dads’ deaths. She then notices Randall’s clothes and he said he has a work thing. She said no way and he has the chess tournament and she calls marriage tonight, so go change!
Toby shows up at one of Kate’s classes and he got a day pass and some new clothes and shiny shoes! Then he starts beating those drum sticks and being funny and the others laughing, but Kate is annoyed on This Is Us Season 1!
On the subway, it got stopped and it is not moving. Kevin goes to Sophie and knows she is claustrophobic. They start chatting and she asks about Kate and Randall and Miguel, which Kevin is not keen on talking about. Sophie apparently likes Miguel. He then admits to making a fake profile on Facebook to become friends with Sophie! She said she was not happy after they got divorced and and she was not in a good place for a long time. She is happy now and has a good job and is dating a good guy. Kevin said he doesn’t want to ruin that for her if she is happy, but he loves her. He will be sitting in their booth the next morning, if she wants to come.
At the chess tournament, Tess has made the finals and Beth and Randall are bored. However, Tess gets check mate and wins! William is looking tired, as Randall questions bringing a dead man into their lives on This Is Us Season 1.
Back to Jack & Rebecca, as she gets home and Jack has a bag packed. He said the kids are at their friends for a sleepover and he is taking her somewhere!
After the class, Kate is pissed and yelling at Toby. She said she takes this seriously and he came in and made it a joke. He said he is all alone in New York and he had surgeries and his chest is tight and he feels like it is all happening again and he needs her. He knows she need this, but he needs her also. He had one more surprise, as he gives her an engagement ring, which was his grandma’s ring. He then leaves!
Randall goes into work and the other guy got the people to sign. His boss pulls him aside and said that he is going to take half his accounts and give to this other guy. Randall is still his most valuable employee, but he needs some help.
We see Jack & Rebecca arrive at their destination, which happens to be their first apartment! He put up candles and lights. He said they are not Miguel and his wife, so they needed to take some time and remember the newlyweds that lived here.
Now Kate is working out and Duke comes in. He asked if lover’s quarrel and she said she is not eating and that is the old her. He said he used to be her and try to lose weight and dated a nice girl. He finally figured out it is a lot easier to accept who you are in all your glory then try to be someone else to make others happy. He then said his offer still stands and it is his final offer, as he is in Cabin 13! Kate, you do not go there on This Is Us Season 1!
We see Jack & Rebecca going over their vows and see if they still stand now. We see Beth and the girls working on a memory box together. Sophie arrives at the diner the next morning to see Kevin on This Is Us Season 1! Randall gets home and sees Beth sleeping and grabs a glass and Randall’s hands are shaking! Um, what?
We then see Kate walking to Cabin 13 and it ends with Rebecca telling Jack about the five state tour for the band and she wants to go!
