Break out your Kleenex because This is Us is finally back on our screens tonight with an emotionally charged episode that may just change how you view the Pearsons forever.

Despite kicking off a full month following Kevin’s DUI arrest, the atmosphere remains sour for Randall and Beth, who are struggling with learning how to forgive and forget.

“When I was at my lowest, Kevin was there for me,” observes Randall in a clip from tonight’s episode “The Fifth Wheel.”

“So we gotta be there for him too. as for me? When I think about how angry I am with him I’m just gonna take a deep breath and force myself to say ‘We’re here for you, Kevin.'”

Wise words, Randall, but let’s see how that works out for you later!

Meanwhile, Kate feels guilt for “allowing” her brother to end up in rehab by not being present when he needed her most. However, a distracted Kate is hiding a secret from fiancé Toby that draws uncomfortable parallels to Kevin’s own situation.

Will Kate see the similarities, or will she echo Rebecca’s belief that the Pearsons are far from a family in crisis?
