“We accept the love we think we deserve...” Stephen Chbosky wrote in his novel ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’. Will that be the case with Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) and Madison Simons (Caitlin Thompson) on ‘This Is Us’? Love stories have always been a major part of the beloved NBC show and as Dan Fogelman said the new season is themed around “births and rebirths,” Kevin and Madison's parenthood will be a major path towards strengthening their bond. 

Earlier, many fans couldn't wrap their heads around Madison as Kevin's future fiancée but now, they seem to be slowly accepting them as a couple. Last week, Kevin turned Kate Pearson's (Chrissy Metz) head when he called her his “fiancée” and even confessed his feelings to Randall Pearson (Sterling K Brown) saying she he “might’ve found someone really special.” In a half-serious way, he almost proposed and suggested they get married too. Is Kevin really serious or still confused — like he has always been? 

Moreover, it's not clear if his feelings for childhood love and ex-wife Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) are over. Will Sophie make a comeback this season and does he deserve to be with Sophie despite their complicated past? Or, maybe, Madison is the right one for him.

Teasing the relationship and welcoming more theories, the official ‘This Is Us’ Twitter handle tweeted, “Alright, Kevin and Madison stans. Where you at?” It soon invited a barrage of reactions on the micro-blogging site. “I would love to see Kevin & Madison’s storyline go a little deeper. I know we’re only 2 episodes in but it feels forced to me. There’s NO chemistry. I want to see him woo her. I want them to fall in love! #thisisus,” one said and another posted, “I'm not anti-Madison, but I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the idea of Kevin/Madison #ThisIsUs.” 



 



 



 

One fan said, “I don't really have theories I just need TO WATCH KEVIN AND MADISON FALL IN LOVE DURING QUARANTINE AND THEN GET MARRIED pls they are so beautiful and so similar and so meant to be,” and another wrote, “I've got one! I LOVE Madison & Kevin so much but it's #ThisIsUs after all, so of course, I'm scared for them! We saw Kevin in the future with the kids, but... what if Madison isn't there? What if she dies giving birth and he's actually married to someone else? I'm SCARED.”



 

 



 

Well, things aren't going to be so simple for the couple. Last week, we speculated that Madison might die after giving birth as she wasn't there in the flash-forward with the twins. “It’s not just going to be this easy love story like some of our other love stories have been,” Fogelman said in an interview with Deadline. “There’s affection and chemistry there. But they still don’t really know each other. So it’s fair to say they have an up-and-down journey ahead of them.” He later added, “There are many more chapters in Kevin’s romantic story.”

Talking about Kevin and Madison's future, Justin Hartley told Entertainment Weekly, “There’s a plan in one’s head about how to go about something. This is a big thing; this is babies coming into your life. So whatever the plan is, the reality will change [it].” He also added, “When you’re going through that with someone as well, the relationship is going to evolve in a way that you probably didn’t expect it to, because they’re both going through this for the first time. So they’re going to definitely have some moments that are very personal.”

“He’s slowed down a bit, he’s safer, he’s more methodical, and he’s more practical about things,” Hartley added. “He takes a little more care, not only of himself. But of other people. I hope that he gets what he wants, and it seems like what he wants is a woman that loves him, with kids.”
