The weighty subject of fidelity takes center stage in Tuesday’s episode of This is Us.
Kicking off with a sepia-toned flashback to Jack and Rebecca’s simple but incredibly romantic ceremony, we also take a peep at Kevin’s attempts to reconcile with his ex-wife Sophia, and Kate’s latest temptation in the form of Duke.
With cautionary tales dangling throughout the hour (Kevin cheated; will Kate? Miguel and Shelly drifted apart. Will the same happen to Jack and Rebecca? In his desperate drive to be both the perfect son and the perfect employee will Randall neglect his marriage?), “I Call Marriage” takes an honest look at couples in all stages of their relationships and ponders what it takes to stay together for the long haul.
“I Call Marriage” may just be This is Us’ most romantic episode yet, but it’s also the show’s most sobering.
NBC teases the following tidbits:
Toby throws a wrench in Kate’s weight loss journey. Randall struggles to accept his father’s deteriorating health. Miguel and Shelly break some devastating news to Jack and Rebecca, which makes them worry about their own relationship. Rebecca receives an amazing work opportunity. Kevin examines his romantic past.
Take a peep at some scenes from the episode below.
It airs Tuesday, February 7 9:00 PM on NBC.
