While I didn't think this season quite hit the highs of the first couple seasons, it definitely righted the ship and avoided the lows of the third season.This is Us really won me back this season.
Both Peg and I said after Randall & Kevin's blowup on the front lawn that we didn't think we'd ever speak to our sibling again after a back-and-forth like that.
This all seems very mysterious and out-of-reach considering they used those scenes to bookend this particular episode.I'm still not sure where we're headed with the mystery of Randall's biological mother. The Vietnamese grandfather in the framing scenes is connected to Randall's birth mother in some way, but it's not exactly clear how. His granddaughter didn't appear to be mixed race, and she only knew Randall's birth mother as the woman in all of her grandfather's photographs, so I don't think Randall's mother is her grandmother.
