Each episode of This Is Us has been packed with twists, going all the way back to the pilot when we learned that Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) Pearson are the parents of Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown). Recently, we’ve learned that Jack is dead in the present, Rebecca is married to his best friend and that Rebecca knew Randall’s real father almost from the moment they adopted him.
In the previous episode, “The Trip,” we learned that Rebecca also knew that Randall’s father William (played by Ron Cephas Jones in the present scenes) was not a battling his addiction to drugs and was a working musician. But she never told Randall that truth.
In “Last Christmas,” the Pearson family will try to make it a happy occasion, even though Randall has not reconciled with Rebecca after learning that she knew William.
