This Is Us is the wonderful show that we look forward to each and every week! Tonight's show is sure to be good! I have a sneak peek at some photos from tonight's episode and you can vote to say which story-line or picture is your favorite. There are a couple promos and some speculation, so if you don't like to be spoiled, tread gingerly! This is Us airs on Tuesday nights on NBC at 9pm EST!
From TV Guide: Tue. Nov. 15th 9pm EST - 1x07 "The Best Washing Machine in the Whole World" - Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Kevin(Justin Hartley)'s rocky relationship is explained; William (Ron Cephas Jones) unexpectedly reveals a secret to Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson); and Kate (Chrissy Metz) feels conflicted after Toby (Chris Sullivan) strays from his diet regimen. Elsewhere, Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) acknowledge the growing distance between them.
We here at Voice Of TV are fans of the show This Is Us! We love to report on our favorite shows and we also chat a lot about them and often wonder where the plot twists of This Is Us will take us! Two of my friends that joins us in today's post are Anam and Dee. We are excited to see what episode 1x07 "The Best Washing Machine in the Whole World" will show us about the Pearson family! Here below is the promo we are talking about.
From Anam: "Looks like another blow your socks off type of episode. This show is easily becoming one that throws you off your seat every week. The writing is phenomenal, the acting is out of this world, and they're talking about real life issues. I hope they show more of Randall and Kevin's relationship and how they've grown together. I have a feeling that Kate is going to get heartbroken just a little, which breaks my heart because she's been through so much and really deserves the world. I'm looking forward to seeing what this episode will bring!" Check out Anamiii on Voice of TV!
From Dee: "Another heartbreaking promo. I'm looking forward to the Kevin and Randall situation where Kevin said "He's my brother". I'm actually looking forward to the Kevin/Randall story because, as per press release, this will be the episode that explains why their relationship is not the same as Randall/Kate or Kevin/Kate. I am also intrigued at what William told Beth. And the title....is it a metaphor or a literal washing machine? Haha!" Check out deedeedee on Voice of TV!
From Me (ALWheaties): Yeah it is a weird title! We need a washing machine to launder all our linen handkerchiefs that we have cried into! On a side note, and I am just speculating as there is no screener. From the press photos from this episode, they show Rebecca and Jack in the laundry mat and also the whole family is hugging around a washing machine at home, so I am guessing that Jack bought one for Rebecca, making that "The Best Washing Machine in the whole world! From the above clip, it looks like Kate has caught Toby perhaps cheating on her. But, from the description, it seems like it might only be cheating with food and not with another girlfriend. It would be upsetting to Kate to find out that both she and Toby are not on the same page with their diets. She desperately wants to loose weight and wants that for Toby too. He is avoiding her phone calls and it would be disappointing to see these two have a rift as they are such a cute couple! I am dying to know what William has told Beth! Can it be that he broke the promise to Momma Rebecca and told her about the pact they made? Or could it be yet something else? It seems major enough for William to want to keep the secret and for Beth to not want to betray her husband Randall, so it is really intriguing!
Here is the 2nd commercial for tonight's commercial. It basically has many clips from previous episodes plus a few new ones for 1x07. They show Randall and Kevin at a night club together; Rebecca singing; Randall and Kevin having a scuffle in the street and running off; Jack and Rebecca hugging near a washing machine; and Daddy Jack and Young Randall (Lonnie Chavis) adjusting their ties. So sweet!
Now we have seen the Pearson children as they were being made, as newborns, as toddlers, as 8 year olds and the IMdB says that we might see them as 15 year olds tonight! Niles Finch plays a 15 yr old Randall! Jon Huertas aka Miguel will be in this episode, perhaps as Jack's boss. Randall's children will be in the show as they mention Annie (Faithe Herman).
Check out my previous article enttitled: Casting News - This Is Us Welcomes O'Hare, Trammell, Simpson And Hunt!
From 1x06 "Career Days", Beth says there is one trader that Randall likes and one that he hates. I think she also mentioned that he would like to fire his receptionist. Well, tonight Katarina Pavelek will play Randall's receptionist and Nikiva Dionne will play a Female Trader, so not sure if this is one of the ones Beth was talking about. Also, not sure if this is the episode Jimmi Simpson (Westworld) will guest as he will play a trader that works with Randall, but they are keeping mum on the episode title and dates. Also, keeping mum about when Sam Trammell's role will come into play. He will play an ex-band member of Rebecca's. Where she sings in this, not sure if he will be in it. Also, Denis O'Hare could show up at any point as William's friend. Time will tell what type of friend he is and how all these new additions will affect the Pearsons.
There was no advanced screener or EPK advanced clips, so the only clues I have to go on is the press promo photos for this episode and I am going to share a few with you here, so you can vote on which is your favorite. There seems to be a few different timelines going on. You can kinda tell that time moves on by looking at Jack's face! Milo's face has either a beard, gotee, clean shaven, mustache, etc. It looks like we will see the 8 year olds and possibly teenagers as it looks like Rebecca and Jack are watching a basketball or football game. Who's playing - Randall, Kevin or both? I like the photo I chose for this article of Kevin and Randall sitting together watching tv while smiling! Makes me hopeful that they have buried the hatchet and mended their relationship!
Which is your favorite Pearson story?
