This Is Us delved into the days prior to the birth of the triplets on its latest episode.
Rebecca (Mandy Moore) struggled with her pregnancy, forgetting Jack’s (Milo Ventimiglia) birthday in the process. As her temper tantrums grew worse, she asked Jack to go out but realised as soon as he left that she’d completely forgotten that it was his birthday.
Despite being heavily pregnant, Rebecca headed out to the store to get the ingredients to bake a cake but ended up icing pre-made cupcakes and apologising to Jack. The storyline looped round to the first episode where we saw a naked Jack about to get intimate with Rebecca moments before her water broke.
Jack meanwhile went out with Miguel (Jon Huertas) and aired his feelings about Rebecca’s behaviour and the impending arrival of the twins.
Elsewhere in the episode the fireman that dropped Randall off at the hospital was revealed to be experiencing trouble in his marriage and wanted to adopt the baby. Dr. K (Gerald McRaney) refused to accept the death of his wife 14 months earlier but eventually decided to deal with it by accepting a dinner invitation and parting with his wife’s belongings.
The next episode of the season is Three Sentences. Jack and Rebecca throw three separate birthdays; Toby (Chris Sullivan) helps Kevin (Justin Hartley) with his love life; Kate (Chrissy Metz) gets a new plan; Randall (Sterling K. Brown) helps William (Ron Cephas Jones) with his bucket list.
