‘This Is Us’ Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) had an uncomfortable night meeting with their parents at the season premiere of “This Is Us”.
(CNN) The distribution of “This Is Us” has become even larger.
The premiere of the season, aired Tuesday night, has expanded the world of the series with the addition of a series of new characters, two of which offer viewers a glimpse of the new period fast forward
Here is his summary of the new blood:
Rebecca’s father, Dave
Tim Matheson prepared for a scene that brought Jack and Rebecca to an elegant dinner to meet the parents. Spoiler Alert: Jack Pearson was not as dear to his father Dave as he was to the Internet.
This story anchored the episode, which featured very few characters that viewers know well.
Jennifer Morrison played a veteran named Cassidy whose transition into family life proved difficult. She drank too much and abused her young son, to the chagrin of her husband, played by Nick Welsher, another newcomer.
At the end of the episode, Cassidy meets with Pearson’s uncle, Nicky (Griffin Dunne). But if you have an idea of Spidey, know that Kevin (Justin Hartley) had quickly decided to book a trip to save his uncle, which was probably a clue that Nicky would not be the only Pearson to trade with Cassidy.
Malik and his family
Asante Blackk, student of “When They See Us”, played a teenage father in a new story.
Malik’s little girl lives with him and his parents (Omar Epps and Marsha Stephanie Blake).
The family’s connection to the tradition “This Is Us” was not obvious until the end, when he met Deja (Lyric Ross) and flirted with him on a barbecue.
Randall and Beth: Welcome to the world of teen dating.
Jack … DAMON
Baby Jack is no longer a baby.
“This Is Us” kept the biggest revelation for the end.
At the beginning of the episode, the audience met a young blind musician (Blake Stadnik) and, all along, they continued their journey from “the man beating the waitress” to the musician / married father. Auden Thornton plays his wife, another new character.
At the end of the episode, Kate and Toby discover that their son Jack is born with nephropathy and will not regain his sight.
In other words, the viewers had watched Not Baby Jack throughout the episode.
Welcome, “This Is Us”, Master of Twist.
