    As This Is Us finales usually do, “So Long, Marianne” left us with more questions than answers. What exactly is Rebecca’s diagnosis? Will Kevin find a new love interest, get engaged and get her pregnant in the next 9 episodes? Or is it Cassidy? Why aren’t Kevin and Randall on speaking terms? Sigh…

    Anyways, loved the episode. I felt like it should’ve been longer. The twist at the end caught me off guard… I was expecting something towards the final minutes but not that.

    Mandy Moore and Griffin Dunne were the highlights of the episode. Mandy’s scene at the Chinese restaurant was brilliant, I wished it was longer. I need her, and everyone else, to get real juicy material with the second half of the season.

    Great to see Michael Angarano always…and in such a happy mood as Nicky. I hope we get to see more of him this season. I thought Ron Cephas Jones would return in a flashback storyline for Thanksgiving… but alas.

    Justin Hartley with Eris Baker are always a wonderful pairing. More of them please!

    I think Kevin heard a little bit of the conversation at the end between Randall and Rebecca. Maybe Kevin is mad because Randall did not say anything to him or Kate.

    “In the beginning of the rest of the season, we’re going into these individualized episodes with the Big Three that are interconnected in time and everyone gets their own focused episode,” Fogelman shares.

    This first half of the season was absolutely wonderful. Can’t say I was disappointed by a single episode.

    Same here.
    Strong, consistent first half.
    This show should be nominated everywhere along with Succession, Watchman and The Crown. No kidding.
    Hope second half continues to deliver, especially with stand alone episodes (I need something like Kevin episode in season 2 or Beth episode last year).
    Drama actress will be hell next year but Mandy Moore is fighting for her spot!

    Can someone get to the team that submits the writing submissions for This Is Us and convince them to rally around 1 episode?

    If one episode were submitted for writing, then what would should be submitted?

    I think the best episode so far was the one directed by Milo Ventimiglia “Storybook Love” with “The Dinner And the Date” coming close.

    They need to learn how to submit.
    I cannot believe they never had a directing or writing nomination considering in my opinion they had whorthy episode every season:
    – Pilot, The Trip, Memphis in season 1;
    – Number One, The Fifth Wheel and Super Bowl Sunday in season 2;
    – Vietnam, Songbird Road Part One and Our Little Island Girl in season 3.

    Yeah it sucks they haven’t received any Writing or Directing (and Editing, because it’s very impressive) nominations at all. They always have bad submissions anyways, except for season 2 but both episodes were equally strong (I personally preferred “The Car” over “Superbowl Sunday”). I agree that “Storybook Love” and “The Dinner and the Date” are the strongest episodes of the first half, and right now i’m leaning towards “Dinner…” as having the strongest chance of a nomination between the two, well at least for Writing and “Storybook Love” for Directing because… the bird scene lol and Milo is the director (hello, think Jason Bateman!?).

    This show is usually better in the second half so i’m hoping we get the best of the best episodes of the show… since the first half is kinda the best since season 1.

    Support for this show is… confusing and inconsistent. I can’t believe they still can’t get back into Casting which is one of the best feats about this show (but I suppose that goes hand in hand with Directing which they still can’t get), and they got left out of Music Supervision after a nomination for season 2 and even after they won the Guild. They surprisingly (to me at least) got into Music Composition for the first time. They also lost Contemporary Costumes but gained two more acting nominations (main cast) and one more for Guest so in essence they got 7 acting nominations compared to 4 for season 2.

    They have received Drama Series nomination every year and more than The Good Wife, the last Broadcast Network show to get in… so that’s impressive at least.

    Mandy Moore is definitely the strongest performer so far and she has two good submissions (“Storybook Love” and “So Long, Marianne”) followed closely by Justin Hartley (“The Pool: Part 2” and “Sorry”) though he’s as subtle as ever. The supporting categories have lost the most nominees from last year (mainly due to GOT ending because they took 7 spots!!) but there’s still a lot of competition from returning and new shows. I hope they win SAG again so I can be 90% sure that Mandy’s keeps her spot.
