This is Us Season 4 Episode 17 Recap:
‘This is Us’ season 4 episode 17 is titled ‘After the Fire.’
In the episode, we delve straight into Randall’s make-believe version, where Jack returns from the hospital, alive and well. Rebecca reveals the truth about the existence of Randall’s biological father, William. Jack and Randall head to Philadelphia to visit William, who is an addict. Jack warns Randall to stay away from William as he feels he is still using, but Randall doesn’t pay heed to him.
The therapist then asks him to put out a darker version. In this version, Jack and Randall rain down on Rebecca for keeping the truth about William from them. Randall goes to Howard and doesn’t visit home often. During a family dinner, Rebecca tries to talk to Randall but is snapped at by Jack who accuses her of being the reason behind everything that is going wrong in the family. Randall begins seeing someone (not Beth) and arrives with her to Kevin and Sophie’s event. By the way, Kevin is a construction worker in this version. The two brothers clash when Kevin complaints about Randall’s lack of presence in the family matters. Rebecca tries to calm them down, but Randall avoids her and leaves. The version ends with Randall hugging Rebecca after Jack reveals to him that she is losing her memory.
Dr. Leigh then prods him to confront Rebecca about hiding the truth for 36 years. He insists he has forgiven her but she presses him to a point where he says, “I’ve already lost three parents. I know that losing my mother would break me. I can’t lose her. I will do anything to keep that from happening. I’ll do whatever it takes.” He guilt-trips his mother, who agrees to Randall’s request.
