*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Not only did the latest episode of This Is Us serve up a seriously depressing look at Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore) forthcoming Alzheimer’s diagnosis and Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby’s (Chris Sullivan) marital woes, but it also featured a flash-forward that hints at a fight between Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown).
How do we know? Well, after the cops bring Rebecca home to what’s presumably Kevin’s new rustic lodge, she asks him if Randall is on his way to come to celebrate the Big Three’s 40th birthday. Frustrated, Kevin tells her that Randall will not be attending because they’re not speaking. Nine months earlier, at Thanksgiving, Randall and Kevin seemed to be on fantastic terms. So, what happened? We have two theories.
