Amanda Warren 'really hopes' Dorothy Hill will return to 'This is Us'
In the previously aired ‘Kamsahamnida’, we saw Randall remembering his father Jack’s valuable lessons regarding boxing that applies to his life even now
‘This is Us’ continues to be one of the most popular shows on TV with Kevin (Justin Hartley) trying to explore Jack’s (Milo Ventimiglia) past, Kate (Chrissy Metz) dealing with pregnancy and a depressed Toby, and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) joining politics. The Big Three is focusing on their individual journeys in season three and we are getting to see more of Jack’s origin story, thanks to Kevin’s curiosity.
Earlier this season, Kevin related his need to understand Jack’s past to his brother. He compares his inquisition to Randall’s own desire to find out more about his birth father William (Ron Cephas Jones). It looks like the brothers are moving in opposite directions, with Kevin looking into the past and Randall looking at the future.
For Randall, it’s not just about his own future, or even about the future of his family, he wants to make his father William’s community better. In the previously aired 'Kamsahamnida', we saw Randall remembering Jack’s valuable lessons regarding boxing. Even though they did not share physical prowess like Kevin and Jack did, he learned that his mind is as powerful as his brother’s body and that will come to his aide in life.
He is definitely going to take Jack’s pearls of wisdom to take him forward in his new life venturing into local politics. To this end, we also hope William makes his own appearances every now and them, imparting his wisdom in this journey. We saw him make an appearance in Beth’s (Susan Kelechi Watson) flashbacks, advising her.
Long back, we saw William’s backstory too, where he had a loving mother Dorothy (Amanda Warren), whose loss and the company of his drug addict girlfriend drove him to get addicted to drugs as well. However, she hasn’t really made an appearance in a long time we sure hope she does, and so does Warren.
"Oh God, I hope so, but I have no knowledge of that at the moment but I would really hope so," she tells Meaww when asked about her return to 'This is Us'. She further gushes about her experience working on the show, "I had a beautiful experience working with Ron (Cephas Jones) and Sterling (K Brown) and I worked on a procedural drama many years ago and it was just a really beautiful experience and I am so thankful that I had that and I hope to have it again."
'This is Us’ airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
