This is not a recap. This is me watching This Is Us. It is late and I have to watch it because I have already heard it is the episode where we find out how Jack dies. I may point out some things along the way.
Kate thinks Toby is surfing porn but he is really on petfinder wishing for a dog. She goes to get him a dog. She falls in love with a rescue. Kate backs out of adopting the dog because he dog died with her dad. But then she went back and got it.
Randall and Beth have bought Randall’s dad’s old apartment building and Randall is going nuts trying to fix everything for everyone in the building. Kevin shows up to help. He needs something to keep him busy. They have to tent the building for roaches and send everyone to a hotel. Kevin admits he is working really hard to make amends with Randall and Beth because of the DUI. Randall and Kevin are both having a midlife crisis. Later the bitch that would not let Kevin have is father’s necklace back sent it to him.
Meanwhile in the flashbacks Jack is building an entertainment center. Young Randall has a new redhaired girlfriend. The big three are preparing for college. So far I am fine on the crying.
All three bail on Jack and Rebecca for the Superbowl game. Jack asks Rebecca to partner with him on his business. They blow off the game to have sex.
Okay in real time Kevin just got his dad’s necklace back. I’m misting already. Here comes death.
Okay. I am pausing because here it comes. AND I AM NOT READY.
I don’t get it. I thought at least Randall was home. And Rebecca. I am confused. And I will never use my crockpot again.
OMG….. I CAN’T.
