This week’s episode, This Is Us – Season 4 Episode 16, entitled, “New York, New York, New York” featured three parallel New York City-centered storylines. Well, really three and a half, but who’s counting? Anyway, We’ve been talking about the Big 3 and the impending rift since mid-season. This episode brings what the rift probably involves into sharper focus. Nothing is set in stone yet, but it looks the future of Rebecca’s care and the Pearson boys’ differing opinion of it will be at the rift’s core. What will cause the break?
Although we consider this one of our best TIU podcasts in a while, we were still left with a few lingering questions, like:
- Kate barely made an appearance in this episode. Where will she stand? With Kevin or Randall? We know she ends up with Kevin in the cabin later on (from the mid-season flash-forward), but will she start out on Kevin’s side?
- Rebecca has a husband. Why wasn’t Miguel even invited to the clinical trial discussion?
- We’re all going to grow old and possibly go through this same kind of thing. What would we choose? The trial? Or finishing up all the “next times” that never got done?
Listen in to hear what they have to say about theses and MANY more questions!
