This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman made fans a promise before the fourth season started that nothing would prepare them for the twists and turns to come – and from social media reaction every week, it looks like he's been keeping that promise. Expanding the cast and the scope of the time periods covered, the writers room have made it their mission to put the "Big Three" – Randall (Sterling K. Brown), Kate (Chrissy Metz), and Kevin (Justin Hartley) – through the emotional meat-grinder every chane they get.
Which is a nice segue into the promo and preview images for this week's "A Hell of a Week: Part Three" – which not only brings "The Big Three Trilogy" to a conclusion but also promises some serious surprises. Considering what Randall, Kate, and Kevin have gone through over the past several weeks, each of them appears at a major crossroads in their respective lives – can coming together one more time be the answer?
"This Is Us" season 4, episode 13 "A Hell of a Week: Part Three": Kate finds strength in unexpected places.
Viewers can also look forward to Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill, Chicago P.D.) and Pamela Adlon (Better Things), set to guest star later this season. While little is know about either of their characters, Fogelman did have this to say regarding Adlon's role in an upcoming Randall (Sterling K. Brown) storyline: "Sterling has an unbelievable arc in the back half of the season, and she plays an important role in the story."
