This Is Us “Kyle” Review
In this episode, we get even more background on William and how Randall came to be adopted. Rebecca is struggling with the babies and forming a bond with Kyle. She decides to track down William and find out about him and his life. As a result, she becomes closer to Randall. Jack is also struggling with helping Rebecca and returns to the doctor with the babies for more advice.
Rebecca, now a grandmother, comes to visit Randall and his family while William is staying there. They meet, and we realize that she has known him and kept Randall from meeting his father. William attempts to leave before his doctor’s appointment, but Randall tracks him down and forces him to go. The doctor doesn’t have good news; William’s cancer has spread, and there is not much to be done.
Meanwhile, Kate and Toby’s relationship is progressing which puts pressure on her relationship with Kevin. Toby realizes that Kate can sing and books her a gig to sing at the nursing home where his aunt lives. She agrees and loves it, but the experience is overshadowed by Kevin calling her yet again. When Kevin sees the damage he is doing to his sister’s life and relationship; he fires her as his assistant and books a red-eye to NYC.
Once again, This Is Us is the perfect show. The music in this particular episode is superb. It adds even more emotional depth to the moments. In the nursing home with Kate is singing “Time After Time,” the moments of flashbacks with Rebecca, William at the hospital with Randall and more are edited so seamlessly and highlights, even more, the expert creativity and genius behind this show.
