This Is Us (S04E17) “After The Fire”

After a powerful episode last week, This Is Us hits us with another powerful episode that could be it’s the best episode this season. Here’s a recap!


NUP 190233 1167 1014x570 - This Is Us (S04E17) "After The Fire"

After a few weeks after the events of last week’s episode, Randall goes back to see the therapist about his idea of what if he could have saved Jack from death what would that be. With two different stories, one being too perfect with both Jack and William still alive; as for the other being totally different but all have something in common; he hasn’t forgiven his mother about William.

After a long therapy session, Randall talks to Beth and tells her what he acknowledges the problem. He later calls Rebecca and tells gives her an emotional speech about starting the trial. After that, she agrees to do it for him.

“After the Fire” was such an emotional episode with a strong performance from Sterling K. Brown and Pamela Adlon. I not only believe that they will get Emmy nominations for this episode but also win as well. The episode gives such a strong character development for Randall with his “What If” scenarios about saving his family. And that moment he calls Rebecca had me in tears from then on out. Next week’s the season finale and from the promo, get ready for some heavy emotional stuff. Overall, I give this episode a 9.5/10.
