It was time for the opening of Kevin’s play on This Is Us Season 1 tonight and his nerves were working overtime. He got the help he needed to calm down from an unexpected source on This Is Us on NBC 2017 tonight! Also, Jack & Rebecca have a huge fight regarding her going on tour on This Is Us Season 1! Check out all the details from “Jack Pearson’s Son” below in our This Is Us Season 1 Recap!
Last week on NBC’s This Is Us 2017, we saw Miguel and his wife tell Jack & Rebecca they are getting a divorce, which seemed to rock Jack and thinking his marriage could be ending. He did a special gesture for Rebecca, but then she said she wants to go on a five-state tour with the band. Toby surprised Kate at fat camp and she was not liking it. They got into an argument and the show ended with her heading to Duke’s cabin, but will she cheat? Then we saw Randall struggle with work and being with his family, but surprise to us all, as the show ended with him in the shower and his hands trembling. Is it Parkinson’s? Then Kevin reconnected with his ex-wife, Sophie, and it seems like she may be interested, even though she claimed to be seeing someone!
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!!!
It is Valentine’s Day! We start with Jack & Rebecca, as she is writing a list of things for him to do when she goes on tour next month! It looks like she has a show tonight, as Jack is excited for it and then they are going to O’Shannon’s afterwards, like normal.
Now to Kate, who knocks on Duke’s door. It turns out she is there to yell at him and say he is a terrible person and she is nothing like him and he will die alone. Turns out, he can say whatever he wants because his parents own this camp and she is done! Well, good for her, but it looks like no more fat camp for Kate!
Now we see Kevin in an interview with Katie Couric and she starts asking him all these questions about the play and sleeping with everyone and it is a nightmare, as he is woken up by a call from Sophie, who knows he had that Katie Couric dream again! She said she can’t make opening night of his play, which he said is probably good since his family will all be there. He asks what they are considered and she said they are cautiously dating, which he likes.
Randall and Kevin are out for a run and Randall has everything going through his mind, like work, William and his mother. It looks like Randall overworks himself into a nervous breakdown, which may be happening again here. He takes a shower and we see his hands shaking again. Beth gets a call and her mom slipped and fell, so she has to go see her. William tries to wash a dish, but falls over into the sink. Randall is going to have a nurse come to help him and it looks like everything is adding up for Randall on This Is Us Season 1!
We see Miguel and Jack talk, as Jack is not happy with Rebecca going on the road. He doesn’t understand it and can’t tell her or he will be ruining her dreams. Jack also thinks a guy in the band likes Rebecca, but Miguel said she would never cheat on him. Jack then tells Miguel to come out with him tonight to her show.
Kate surprises Toby by knocking on his door and telling him she is home and kicked out from the camp, as Duke’s family owner the camp. Toby was worried that she may fall for him. They agree they don’t know much about each other, so agree to let it all out there. So, they will as they go out shopping for clothes for Toby.
Now Kevin is calling Kate and wants her to reassure him he won’t fail in the play. Then Sloane comes up and they talk about the play and the New York Times will be there tonight, so Kevin is freaking out even more!
Back in the day, we see The Big Three come home and talking about Valentine’s Day and it is mentioned that Kevin is sleeping with Sophie, which Rebecca overhears and calls him out and Kevin doesn’t want to chat about it.
At the store, Kate and Toby are shopping and asking all the questions. She asks about him thinking about suicide after his divorce and if he ever thought about it again, but the sale guy saves him from answering that question.
Randall comes into work and a quarterly meeting got moved up to that afternoon. Kevin comes in to chat and Randall is flustered. He then gets a call and Randall fired his hospice nurse, so now he has to go home to take care of that. He is clearly lost and forgetting everything!
We see Jack & Rebecca talking to Kevin about sex and Jack said to use condoms and have respect. Randall comes down and is freaking out over his paper and Jack calms him down and tells him to breathe. Rebecca is now freaking out and thinks this is not a good time for her to go, but Jack said they’ll make it work.
Now to Kate & Toby having some coffee. He talks about always having depression and his divorce was the closest he thought about suicide. He said he has done a lot of work since then and has single-handedly financed his therapist’s new Tesla! Toby then asks Kate about her father’s death and more details on it. Kate said she wants to tell him about it, but she is not quite there yet. She said it has been blocked for a really long time. He said whenever she is ready then.
Randall gets home and he yells at William for doing this. William said she would not let him have a coke and he is a grown man. Randall said he is sorry and just needs him to let her help. William said something new every day is giving out on him and he is not sure how much longer he can do this. Randall said he knows and they will talk later and watch a movie on This Is Us Season 1.
We are at the club now and Miguel is checking out the ladies and sends over a drink for one of the ladies there. The band starts singing, as Jack is watching how Rebecca and the guy in the band are staring and she is singing to him. Jack is not happy, but Miguel said it is just for the audience. Meanwhile, Miguel goes to chat with the lady he bought a drink for.
Kevin tries to go chat with his mother, but she is not home. Miguel is there and Kevin needs someone to calm him down. Miguel said whenever he was nervous, he would talk to Jack and Kevin reminds him so much of Jack. Miguel said that is why it hurts him so much that Kevin does not like him, as he feels like he gets a little bit of his best friend back when he sees him. Miguel said he is Jack Pearson’s son and he needs to remind himself of that when he gets on that stage. It is a very touching moment and it calms Kevin down, as he leave. He tells Miguel he does not not like him, which Miguel said is a start.
We are at Randall’s work now and it is time for the conference call. Randall is talking, but he is lost and can’t make any sense. The new guy helps him out and explains the numbers to the client on This Is Us Season 1.
Back to the club, the band guy is talking to Jack. We find out that this guy and Rebecca used to date back in the day, which Jack did not know about. Rebecca comes over and is ready for the burgers, but Jack said he is not in the mood and they head home instead.
We are at the play and Toby stops Kate before going in and said they need hold off on the wedding until they know each other and can talk about everything with each other. She agrees, but they will be engaged until they through the wedding of the century on This Is Us Season 1!
Back in the day, Jack & Rebecca are home and he said that Ben told him they used to date and she lied to him. She said it was for two months when she was 19 years old and knew he would spin out like this if she told him. It was nothing, but knew he would react like this and she needed something for herself without him getting in the way. He said he never felt like he was in her way and leaves!
Randall is at work and he is totally out of it and he grabs his phone and he is shaking. He calls Kevin and tells him he can’t make it to the play tonight and Kevin is hurt. Randall is making absolutely zero sense!
Kate, Toby, Miguel and Rebecca are in attendance now. Sloane and Kevin are backstage and getting prepped. Kevin said he is going to do what his dad would do. The play starts and Sloane is there, but no Kevin! Turns out, Kevin runs to Randall’s office and lays on the floor and holds him! Yeah, I am a mess!
We then see Jack in the restaurant that him and Rebecca were supposed to go to on This Is Us Season 1! Yeah, he is there alone and he orders a drink! Let the drinking begin and the downfall of Jack Pearson?
