TV Review: This is Us (Season 2, Episode 3)
Share This Article:
This week’s episode of This Is Us was a refreshing perspective on many of the issues which have been introduced thus far in the series. Rather than focusing on Kate’s storyline which has been the main focus of the initial episodes, viewers were instead party to a closer look into the struggles of her twin brother, Kevin. With much of the episode taking place on Kevin’s movie set, there was more of a chance to get an insight into the workings of his life as an actor. A fabulous cameo from Sylvester Stallone as Kevin’s co-star allowed for a deeper look into the way in which the death of Jack has affected Kevin. Whilst Kate discusses her father’s love for the Rocky movies, and her relationship with him openly to Stallone, Kevin is more guarded with his feelings, becoming defensive and lashing out at his sister. His behaviour reflects the fact that he has been unable to come to terms with the death of his father, an issue which has not been touched on particularly in the series. The suppression of grief and longing by Kevin was excellently portrayed by Justin Hartley and has set up a potential storyline for episodes to come.
