'This Is Us' Season 6 Episode 10: Rebecca reveals why she chose Kate over Randall as executor
For the last two weeks, we have seen intriguing life stories of Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) and Kate Pearson (Chrissy Metz), telling viewers how they went through their younger years. But we know, Randall has been one of the strongest characters on the show and it doesn’t come as a shock when we got to know how much Randall went through to keep the family together and out of trouble.
The episode started with the younger versions of Kate, Kevin, and Randall getting discovered by a police officer while going out of the public swimming pool. It was Randall, who got them out of the situation. Meanwhile, in the present scenario, Deja has finally found out why Malik hasn’t been talking to him and slams his father for ruining his life. Randall (Sterling K Brown) believes that a relationship with Malik is absolutely devastating for her career and life. Deja (Lyric Ross) gets really angry after hearing that and says, “I literally hate you”.
Randall had a hard night, however, everything became worse when he finds out that Deja has left the cabin. Her sister, Tess, tells Randall that she left last night after the argument. She tried to stop her, but Deja didn’t listen to her. Randall gets ready to bring her back and Rebecca says that she is coming with him. Meanwhile, Randall asks Miguel to take Beth and the children back.
Rebecca and Randall hit the road and share a lot of sweet moments. They have breakfast together where they talk about how Randall liked reading books. Beth calls Randall, telling him that Deja is in Boston and is doing fine. He was ready to go and search, but that’s when Rebecca told him to give her some space. She said that they should give her one night to think. Randall accepts that and asks what they are going to do now. They both walk into a bar and have a good time.
A few moments later Rebecca shows her the paper in which some personal things are written about Councilman Randall Pearson. He is surprised Rebecca has that, but she tells that she always collects things about her kids. After that, they enjoyed an amazing game of darts.
They check into a hotel and that’s where Randall tells his mother that one of the senators is retiring and he has given Randall’s name to fill his position. So, “Five Fun Facts about Councilman Randall” is not just a fluff piece. Rebecca gets really happy after hearing that, but Randall is still uncertain about it because of the family situation and he doesn’t want to make a rash decision right now.
The next morning, Rebecca and Randall talk to each other and Rebecca tells him how he has always been there for her. He has sacrificed things for his family and took care of the whole family when Jack died. So, that’s the reason she chose Kate because she knows that he will stop living his life for her and she doesn’t want that. As soon as they end their discussion, Randall gets a call from Deja and they reach Boston. Deja is ready to leave and Malik tells Randall that they might get back together in the future. Randall says that if it’s meant to be, you guys will be together again and told him to take care of himself. Deja apologizes for what she said the other day about just being a child that he took her from her mother.
The episode ended with viewers getting to know how Kevin and Kate’s lives have changed as well. Kevin has reached home and his ex-wife is impressed with how he handled the kids. Meanwhile, Kate has told Toby that she won’t be moving to San Francisco. So, it seems one family has started to break.
