EXCLUSIVE: Chrissy Metz Gets Real About Next Week’s Episode of ‘This Is Us’

The promo for next week’s This Is Us left us nothing short of shook. Kevin (Justin Hartley) is drinking again, Kate (Chrissy Metz) is on her way to the ER, and we can’t deal not knowing what’s ahead for the Pearson clan.

So, when we had the chance to sit down with Chrissy Metz to discuss her new initiative with Turbo #RealMoneyTalk, we had to ask about Kate’s future. 

According to the 38-year-old star, we’re in for one heck of a roller coaster. “I felt excited, but also felt really challenged as an actress,” Metz exclusively reveals to PureWow about reading the script for the next two episodes.

As for Kate’s story line, she says, “It’s going to be a really cool, interesting journey. It’s going to be difficult.” Metz is optimistic, though, sharing, “I’m hoping we continue to see her grow and I’m hoping to see her be a mom.” Please be gentle, Dan Fogelman, our hearts are still fragile from losing Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and William (Ron Cephas Jones).

So, what’s going on with Kate being rolled into the emergency room? Are she and the baby OK? We’ll have to wait for This Is Us to return to NBC on March 5 at 9 p.m., but until then stock up on the tissue boxes, friends, because if we know one thing, it’s going to be an emotional night.

Welp, Justin Hartley Knows How ‘This Is Us’ Ends
