This is Us Season 5 Episode 4 Recap
In the fourth episode of season 5, titled ‘Honestly,’ we see Jack and Rebecca struggling to sleep-train baby Kevin. Jack believes that Kevin needs to learn certain things on his own and physically stops Rebecca from soothing Kevin when he cries too much. Their endeavors are ultimately successful. Another flashback to when the Big Three are in middle school reveals Kevin struggling to keep up with football. Rebecca thinks that they should tell Kevin it’s okay to quit football if he wants to, while Jack feels that Rebecca’s coddling has made their son “soft”. Kevin, who hears the conversation between his parents, asks Randall to help him learn the plays.
In the present day, Kevin can’t quite wow the director of his new film, Jordan Martin Foster. However, when Kevin uses Randall’s old method to learn the movie’s script in a single night, Foster is downright impressed. Elsewhere, Kate goes with Ellie to her ultrasound, where she calls the baby Chloe. Ellie reveals how she once even considered getting an abortion and how the pregnancy has been overwhelming so far, but she has no doubts about Kate and Toby. A flashback shows us that teenaged Kate, just after she and Marc had broken up, had discovered that she is pregnant.
Meanwhile, Malik shadows Randall at work but neglects to turn off Randall’s live stream of his online bulletin. Unaware that he is still streaming, Randall starts to change his clothes to go for a run as the entire city watches! Déja manages to reach Malik, who stops the stream and apologizes profusely. The viral video also catches the attention of the mystery fisherman who was introduced in the season premiere. And the old man clearly knows Randall’s birth father’s name, which might be a clue to his birth mother’s whereabouts.
