This week’s episode, This Is Us Season 4 Episode 13, entitled “A Hell of a Week: Part 3,” follows the pattern set last episode and rewinds the clock to show us what was happening in Kate’s world during Randall’s break-in. Last episode, during the 3-way phone call with Kevin and Randall, Kate told us her marriage was imploding and this week we got a deeper look into what made her say that. Can Toby and Kate pull it together?
As usual, we cover all timelines presented in the episode, injecting our own personal experiences as parents of a blind child (deafblind, actually) into our analysis. Questions we tackle include:
- Marc had always been a little creepy, and many fans have predicted a forthcoming sexual assault on his part, but did anyone guess that he was actually psychotic? (Re-watch the driving to the cabin portion for clarification.)
- Paul missed a similar retreat early on in our journey. Was it ok for Toby to miss the retreat?
- With so many more moving parts than one person can handle, how is Kate going to handle 1. Learning how to parent a blind child, 2. Deciding whether to try to get Toby on-board or jettison his cross-fit ass, and 3. Her probable upcoming role as caretaker to dementia-suffering Rebecca?
Tune in to hear what we have to say!
