Justin Hartley (who plays Kevin Pearson) recently sat down for an interview with Entertainment Weekly, where he discussed the show’s sixth (and final) season. While the latest episodes will highlight each member of the Big Three—Kevin (Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown)—Hartley warned that the characters are nearing their breaking points.
“Each character is making a decision that is going to change the course of their life from here,” he told the outlet. “You’re going to see the impact that had on the three kids and what they choose to do because of that very powerful speech.”
Hartley was referring to Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore) monologue in episode seven, where she appointed Kate as the person who will make decisions for her once her dementia has progressed. Hartley explained that the Big Three will struggle to honor Rebecca’s wishes.
