THIS IS US Sows Seeds of Dissent in “The Most Disappointed Man”

Disappointment is the central theme of tonight’s episode of This is Us — but don’t worry, there’s a large dollop of feel-good in there too that will be sure to leave fans laughing through the tears.
“The Most Disappointed Man” will flash back, not only to William’s drug years, but also to the Pearson’s official bid to adopt baby Randall.
We’ll see how two court judges weighed the facts against their own personal beliefs, and in making a crucial decision, helped alter the course of Pearson family over the years to come.
Meanwhile, in the present day, Kevin begins to spiral out of control, and while Kate and Toby reassess their marriage plans, Randall goes up against Deja’s mother, Shauna.
We’ve seen the episode a little early, thanks to our friends at NBC, and have a number of teasers for you. As always, we avoid plot point and character reveals that might ruin your enjoyment of the live episode.
That said? Exercise a little caution anyway, as one man’s gentle teaser is another’s great big flaming spoiler.
Kevin Sees the Future
We’re used to flashing back and forth through the years on This is Us, but tonight the show will take an unorthodox leap into Kevin’s future. A future perceived by Kevin that is, complete with a permanent move to New York, marriage to Sophie, and a kid of their own.
Can fans expect future Pearson family bliss for Kevin? Not so much. Kevin’s future is, in a word, a nightmare. So much so, that the mere idea of it prompts him to make an impetuous decision in order to prevent it from ever happening.
