This Is Us fans weren’t prepared for what unfolded in season 6’s new episode, especially the wrench thrown by Kevin (Justin Hartley).
On Tuesday night, viewers were moved to tears watching Rebecca (mandy moore) perform the original song “Forever Now” at Kate (Chrissy Metz)’s wedding. While many enjoyed watching the Pearson matriarch singing along to the show’s theme song, others were hoping that Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) and Madison (Caitlin Thompson) would find out who Kevin had slept with the night before.
Thought This Is Us fans previously theorized it was Madison, she found belongings from another woman in Kevin’s hotel room and excitedly joined Beth in trying to solve the great mystery. In the end, it came down to three possibilities: 1) the wedding singer, Arielle (Katie Lowes) 2) his ex-wife, Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) and 3) his friend Cassidy (Jennifer Morrison). Unfortunately, neither Beth nor Madison figured out who the mysterious woman was. Kevin also didn’t give his identity away when Randall (Sterling K. Brown) asked at the very end of the episode. But in a preview for next week’s episode, we see Kevin exploring something more with all three.
After seeing him be coy with his answers, This Is Us fans wasted no time taking to Instagram to share their thoughts. Folks couldn’t help but think that the show has misled them this entire time into thinking he’d end up with either Cassidy or Sophie, prompting some to say how mad they’ll be if Kevin winds up falling for Arielle.
“If it’s the wedding singer, I’m not watching this show anymore,” one person wrote in the comments section of an Instagram post from the This Is Us account. “If Kevin ends up with the WEDDING SINGER I’m gonna be so angry!! I did not watch six seasons for this. who even is she!!??” another added. “I did not cry for 6 years to have him end up with the wedding singer! That would just be awful,” a different fan emotionally declared.
What’s more, others revealed that they wouldn’t be satisfied if he ended up with any other person besides Sophie. “If Kevin doesn’t end up with Sophie…six seasons wasted!! Forever love and hope!” a follower commented.
So, how long will This Is Us keep teasing Kevin’s love story? It appears the highly anticipated answer will be shown in next week’s episode called “The Night Before the Wedding.” Speaking with Deadline, This Is Us writer Jon Dorsey shared that it’ll all make sense soon.
“I’d say that the end of [Tuesday’s night episode] certainly sets up a mystery that will be answered sooner than later,” he told the outlet. “It’s safe to assume that the person revealed at the end of this mystery will be Kevin Pearson’s true love and that his romantic journey will have concluded. All three suitors presented in [the episode] are certainly viable options.”
