A Weekend at the Cabin Gets a Little Trippy in NBC’s THIS IS US
This is Us’ next episode “The Trip” will see things getting a little psychedelic for one of the Pearsons when they accidentally consume ‘magic mushrooms’ belonging to one of Kevin’s actor friends.
Sound a little unlike the show you know, and love, and need to go lie down in a quiet place and sort through your feelings about your own family after watching each week? Don’t worry, despite the trippy aspect of this week’s hour, This is Us will provide everything you love in spades this week. In fact, we’d go so far as to say “The Trip” might just be the most poignant and heartfelt episode yet.
The action kicks off when Kate, Kevin and Randall, still reeling from the events of Thanksgiving (in which Randall discovered his mother Rebecca had been keeping her knowledge of his birth father’s location and identity a secret), learn their Mom is about to sell the family cabin — a place filled with happy childhood memories.
The Big Three set off to spend one last weekend together before the sale, and the fallout from recent events, threaten to pull them apart.
However things quickly turn south when Kevin invites Olivia along, and she in turn brings some friends who rub both Kate and Kevin the wrong way.
And one of the Big Three gets more than they bargained for when they meet a very familiar face after accidentally drinking soup made from hallucinogenic mushrooms.
Truths will come out. Revelations will be made, and the Pearsons may never quite see each other in the same way again.
“The Trip” airs Tuesday, November 29 at 9:00 pm on NBC.
