    Episode was great, a bit cheesy but fine. Justin Hartley was sensational, good enough for a nomination tbh. Alexandra Breckenridge was equally amazing. Interesting turn of events at the end… but not entirely surprising really.

    Mr Hartley will direct the Kate- centric episode that airs tomorrow. Exciting!

    I loved this episode….until the end. I HATE Toby more and more as time goes on. My grade: B+

    Kate’s episode was the weakest of the “Big Three” showcases, though both Chrissy Metz and Mandy Moore were great in all of their scenes together. It’s been telegraphed for awhile now that Marc was abusive to teen Kate, so no surprises there. I’m more curious about what this big riff is that splits up the Big Three in the flash-forwards. Is it really about Rebecca losing her memory? Now Kate knows, which means Kevin will find out very soon. Randall kept the news from them at Rebecca’s request! That can’t be overlooked. As for Toby, sigh. Not making apologies for his gym rat behaviors (Crossfit people are just the worst) or flirting with that girl on text, but I can see how it takes a “leap of faith” of sorts to learn how to parent a special needs child. You don’t just wake up one day and make 100% correct parenting decisions even with a regular needs child! Chris Sullivan does wonders with navigating a tricky role as Toby. He doesn’t get nearly enough credit for that around here and never has. I hope he can maintain his Emmy slot this year, but with a genuine Toby showcase before the season’s over.

    This season (or at the very least, this “trilogy” of episodes) kind of feels like a slog with none of the Big Three being particularly likable right now. Surprisingly, I liked the Kate episode best even though Metz didn’t really have much to do. She always seems to get outshined by Moore in her own showcase episodes. Hartley was good in his episode, but the storyline was so boring and predictable for a full episode. Did we really need to spend more time with Sophie only to reiterate that she’s not “The One”? How many more times is the show gonna bring her back only to dash away hope that she’s back for good? Everything about Randall’s storyline is turning me off right now and I’ve honestly really turned on his character. Milo Ventimiglia is hopefully getting a paycheck doing other projects because he’s been wasted this season. But one positive is that the teenage Big Three had some real moments to shine with this “trilogy,” especially Niles Fitch and Hannah Zeile. I actually have always found that the flashback storylines were stronger than most of the present day stories, so I was glad to see those young actors have some strong moments over this past month.
