THIS IS US: Randall Gears Up For a Thanksgiving Disaster in “Pilgrim Rick”
Did you know Thanksgiving is Randall Pearson’s favorite holiday? But it wasn’t always so.
The traditional Pearson Thanksgiving (complete with some really unusual customs) came into being one stressful holiday morning when fate took over and prevented Jack, Rebecca and the kids from making it to Rebecca’s parents’ house for dinner.
What replaced that stuffy meal (and the events leading up to it) became woven into the Pearson tradition over the years, giving us the unique celebration we’ll all see on Tuesday night.
For a glimpse of Randall in his element check out the following two sneak peek clips from “Pilgrim Rick” sent our way recently by NBC.
Both clips see a buoyant Randall all over the Thanksgiving dinner preparations, organizing everything from the traditional hotdogs and saltines(!) to the traditional picnic blankets(!!).
Is there anything that could bring this man down today? Well, as it happens there is. Randall’s thanksgiving is about to be shattered in a way he never dreamed possible. (Timely warning: Stock up on Kleenex now!)
The “Pilgrim Rick” episode of This is Us airs Tuesday November 22 (09:00PM – 10:00PM) on NBC.
