Spoiler Alert: ‘This Is Us’ Season 5 Episode 12 ‘Both Things Can Be True’
“It takes someone very special to help you forget someone very special...” Erich Segal once said. Kevin Pearson's (Justin Hartley) life on ‘This Is Us’ has been a roller coaster of sorts when it comes to his relationships. For a long time, fans had huge debates over who should be his future fiancée.
From his ex-wife Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) to Beth's cousin Zoe (Melanie Liburd) and Kate's friend Madison (Caitlin Thompson), the possibilities were many. The Manny finally put a ring on it with Madison who also gave birth to his twin children, Nicholas and Frances. Now, the couple is all set to exchange vows and take things to a new level.
Titled ‘Both Things Can Be True’, the summary and sneak peek of the episode paint a beautiful picture of Kevin Pearson's wedding preparations. The synopsis reads: “Jack and Miguel bond; Kevin and Madison navigate challenges; Randall seeks out a new kind of support network.”
Meghan Markle is on the magazine as Kevin and Madison make it official. The slug reads: “The Manny puts a ring to it!” The lavish wedding preparations overwhelm Madison and she feels they could have never booked a place as huge as that for the nuptials. Kevin declares: “The best man will obviously be my brother...” But he is hesitant to reach out to Randall Pearson (Sterling K Brown) and tries to draft an email. “I just want to make sure I say it the right way,” Kevin nervously says. Amid all the excitement, Uncle Nicky (Griffin Dunne) and Miguel (Jon Huertas) have a bit of a tiff over the rehearsal dinner menu.
As the episode ends with the delightful news, the magazine reaches the homes of Kevin's former partners — Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge), Zoe Baker (Melanie Liburd) and Cassidy (Jennifer Morrison). The three smile and seem to be happy Kevin has finally settled down. Sophie looks at the announcement with tears of joy... Now, the question remains: Will the three be invited to his wedding?
How do you think will the three women from his past react if and when they see him? Written by Daniel Bauman and directed by Chris Koch, the beautiful episode leaves things on a major cliffhanger and it is yet to be seen what happens next. Dan Fogelman, Isaac Aptaker, Elizabeth Berger, John Requa, Glenn Ficarra, Ken Olin, Charlie Gogolak, Jess Rosenthal and Steve Beers executive produce.
