TV Review: This is Us (Season 2, Episode 8)
Share This Article:
With the entire narrative focusing on Kevin, Episode 8 of the second instalment of This is Us, was an honest insight into the pressures of fame, parental expectation and high achievement. The issues surrounding Kevin have been built up to a climax in recent episodes, culminating in Number One, an episode devoted entirely to Justin Hartley’s tormented character. Picking up where Episode 7 left off, we are greeted with a present-day Kevin who seems very much worse-for-wear. The tragic break-up between Kevin and his ex-wife, come girlfriend, Sophie formed an emotional part of the previous episode, reflecting just how far down the line Kevin’s problems have dragged him. Sporting a nonchalant beard and consuming copious amounts of alcohol, we find Kevin hauled up in his hotel room, avoiding the outside world.
