This Is Us Season 5 Episode 11 Recap
In the episode called ‘One Small Step,’ we are taken through various phases of Nick or Uncle Nicky’s life before he arrives at Kevin and Madison’s home to meet the twins. In a flashback sequence before the Vietnam War, Jack and Nick are very close. Jack encourages his brother to leave home and focus on himself. However, Nick decides to stay back when he realizes that their father treats their mother better when he is around.
His reluctance to leave home also costs him his relationship with Sally. Another flashback sequence after the Vietnam War suggests that the two brothers are dealing with the repercussions of the war and have not been in touch. While Jack decides to take the next step in his relationship with Rebecca and decides to propose to her, Nick fails to overcome his fear and meet his brother. Back in the present, Kevin is overjoyed to see his Uncle Nicky, who has come to meet the twins.
Kevin is not aware of what it took for Nick to travel from Pennsylvania to California after spending almost 50 years alone. We learn how much Nick had to prepare to actually make the trip, even though he was on the verge of canceling it multiple times. In a touching moment, Nick spends time with the twins and lets them know that traveling to meet them was a big achievement for him. He compares it to the time when humans first stepped on the moon. More than courage, Nick had to learn how to accept love again. The next morning, Kevin finds an old photo of Jack and Nick that Sally had taken many years ago.
