TV Review: This is Us (Season 2, Episode 9)
Share This Article:
The second part in the trio of episodes devoted to each member of the ‘Big Three’, Number Two brought home the trials and tribulations facing Jack and Bec’s only daughter. Having miscarried her baby early in the episode, Kate is faced with the grief and tragedy of having lost a child. The excitement which had been such a challenge to hide was suddenly lost as both mother and father-to-be were forced to come to terms with their loss. The difference in their reactions to the tragedy begs the question of how compatible Kate and Toby really are. While Toby feels that coming to terms with their loss privately, together and in their own time is the best way to heal, Kate goes about her day as if nothing had happened, to the dismay of her fiancée. This difference over an issue so large reflects the differing attitudes to self-care and healing of the pair. Perhaps Toby’s emphasis on self-care will be an antidote to Kate’s dismissal of her true feelings, or perhaps, as was the case with her brother, old habits die hard.
