This is Us’ next episode “Pilgrim Rick” will bring a Thanksgiving showdown of epic proportions.
Fans who tuned into the last episode, “The Best Washing Machine in the Whole World,” were shocked when Randall, high on an ‘adult brownie,’ accidentally admitted that he and Rebecca had met and exchanged a book when Randall was still a baby.
What was more shocking however was Beth’s reaction. Without informing Randall of what had transpired between them, she secretly left a voice message for Rebecca demanding to know why she kept her husband’s birth father a secret from him all these years.
Will Randall discover the truth? Yes, and according to NBC, the truth will break his heart.
The upcoming episode will see the Pearsons gathering for a Thanksgiving dinner peppered with unusual traditions that date back to their first Thanksgiving meal together in less than auspicious circumstances.
Will we get a look at that moment? Absolutely! The upcoming episode will flash back to the younger Pearsons, and a memory of Thanksgiving past, when en route to Rebecca’s parents’ house for their traditional and uncomfortable Thanksgiving holiday, an unforeseen detour occurs forcing Jack and Rebecca to rethink how they approach the holiday season.
Who is Pilgrim Rick? Why won’t Kevin share the hat with Miguel, and who serves hotdogs at Thanksgiving anyway?
Meanwhile, back in the present, while Randall is pumped at the prospect of the day, Kevin invites Olivia to dinner (for the unintentional family fireworks) little knowing that Olivia has some unpleasant Thanksgiving memories of her own to deal with.
However, William shares a unique perspective with the young actress that gives her fresh insight.
Meanwhile, struggling to make it to Randall’s house for dinner, Kate reassesses her own life and makes two courageous decisions — both of which could change her life drastically.
The upcoming hour is called “Pilgrim Rick” and it airs Tuesday November 22 at 9:00 pm on NBC, but if you can’t wait that long, catch our photo gallery from the episode below.
