Yes, I think so. It’s not like This Is Us hasn’t been breaking our hearts since it began three years ago. However, it’s hard to believe that they are even coming after our favorite present day couple. Nothing and no one can ever beat the flashbacks of Jack and Rebecca, but now we are faced with a sad time for Beth and Randall.
[WARNING: SPOILERS FOR THIS IS US BELOW!]
When we last left Randall and Beth, we saw a very angry Randall shutting their bedroom door. It was 100% clear that a major fight was about to happen, and well, I’m not so sure how it’s all going to turn out. I’ve always admired the pair for their communication skills, but since their career paths have taken opposite turns, things haven’t been so clear.
Last weeks episode showed the pair working hard to sort things out, juggling schedules, etc. Then things took a wrong turn when Beth was late to meet Randall for a very important dinner party. Randall then proceeded to leave Beth an incredibly angry voicemail. That’s the thing, there’s no going back from angry voicemails.
This weeks episode is set to feature Beth and Randall’s love story. While I’m looking forward to seeing the evolution of their bond, I am crossing all of my fingers and my toes that we are seeing this for good reasons. I’m worried we might be seeing their story, because we are going to witness how it all falls apart and ends. We know for sure that Beth doesn’t give up her ballet dreams because we see her in the flash forwards watching over a dance class. Does Randall sacrifice his dreams?
Time will tell. However, I really hope this isn’t the end for B&R. This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9pm on NBC. You can catch up anytime on Hulu.
