While Randall and his family try to enjoy one last family summer fun before they all get busy. Randall goes with Deja riding the bus to her school. But he gets a bit of overprotection with her when she’s sitting next to someone. Tess goes for a new hair cut and while it’s a bit overwhelming, it’s a cool new look for her. But later as they get together; as they race up theRocky’s Steps with fun and joy. Jack whether he’s a good person. At the end of the day, they come together and enjoy being the pool. 

Meanwhile, both Kate and Kevin are having a bit of a hard time dealing with their issues. Kate worries about how she’s going to take care of baby Jack; while Kevin is worried about jumping off the wagon while dealing with Uncle Nick and doing his next role. But when baby Jack begins to cry, Kevin comes in and not only calms him down but as Kate comes in she and he both calm each other down as well. Kevin takes the next flight to his next movie role while Kate accepts the challenges and whatever comes their way they’ll deal with it for Jack.

Also, Toby has been sneaking out at night to do exercise just to take the stress off.

“The Pool: Part Two” was a very good and heartfelt episode from beginning to end.  The story was so good with character development; even some very good performances from Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley and even Chris Sullivan. Even that one scene with Sullivan and Mandy Moore was so good as they have a connection of worrying about Kate.

I enjoyed watching M. Night Shyamalan in this episode just like the rest of the unbelievable guest stars that come in playing themselves. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
