This Is Us Season 5 Episode 13 Recap
In the episode titled ‘Brotherly Love,’ Kevin and Randall take significant steps to repair their relationship. You may remember that towards the end of season 4, both said extremely hurtful things to each other. While they have come a long way from there, an important issue has remained unaddressed, and that is Randall’s experience of growing up Black in an all-White family.
As we know, Randall has joined a support group for people who are adopted by parents that are racially different from them. The experience of looking different from the rest of the Pearsons has always hit a raw nerve for Randall. The fact that Kevin particularly wants to talk about it makes Randall all the more anxious. A flashback sequence shows Randall and Kevin as five-year-olds. When Randall is assumed to be a part of another family, he feels hurt. Realizing that, Jack tries to overcompensate to make Randall feel better but instead, it makes him feel othered. Kevin starts acting out because he feels that Jack is more attentive towards Randall.
Another flashback shows Randall and Kevin in college. Randall is hurt as Jack is oblivious to how insensitive he is. This shows in the way Kevin treats him. Later, Kevin also behaves badly with a Black cab driver. Eventually, the argument between the brothers takes a physical form, and they get thrown out of the cab. It turns out that Kevin is jealous of Randall since he seems to have his life together. However, Randall feels that his brother resents the fact that he is Black.
In the present day, the Pearson brothers talk about Randall’s adoption and his struggle to come to terms with his idea of a family. A part of Randall always imagined what life would be like had he not been adopted, which made him feel very guilty. He has always loved the Pearsons, but not being able to talk about his birth parents made him feel imprisoned. Randall did not want to come across as ungrateful to Jack and Rebecca. After a roller coaster of a heartfelt conversation, Kevin finally realizes the part he has played in hurting Randall, and the two brothers seem to be on the same page.
