This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown spoke to People and teased a long-awaited and important discussion that will happen between brothers Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Randall (Brown) in Tuesday's episode of the NBC drama series.
"There was a conversation that was going to happen in episode 5 and Randall was like, 'Yo man I got to go meet my mom's people.' And at the end of episode 6, Kevin's like, 'Yo man I'm about to have these babies and I'm stuck north of the border,'" Brown told the magazine.
"It will happen. You'll witness them finding the time and the space to have the conversation they've been looking to have since the end of last year. The conversation that needed to take place," he shared.
Before this, the fictional family must navigate the birth of the clan's latest additions and how that story will "shift" because of COVID-19 restrictions. Telling this tale in a real-time manner proved to Brown how invested the writers continued to be in telling a story reflective of what is occurring in today's world, he revealed.
He claimed that, historically, Randall -- or any of the Pearsons -- would jet-set from the east coast to the west coast in a heartbeat to be there for family. However, quarantine and travel restrictions make doing so currently impossible. This means that Madison (Caitlin Thompson) will have to go through the birth of her children alone.
