Warning: Spoilers ahead for the latest episode of This Is Us. Read at your own risk
Ever since This Is Us premiered, the show has been known for well put twist. While the death of Jack has been one of the most heartfelt moments of the show, the latest episode contained a major surprised as the final moment of the episode revealed that Kate is pregnant. And recently, the actress told that her character will go through major changes due to that.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly, she said, “It goes back to the second episode when she goes to the Hollywood party and her and Toby just started dating. She’s in that drunken stupor of really being honest with her emotions, and she says, ‘If I can even get pregnant, will people even notice? Will people even believe that I’m pregnant?’ So now that she is, there’s so many emotions: Will she be a mom like her mother? And when she’s feeling good about herself, will she able to pursue singing? And trying to figure out all of her life and bring in another life to the world, that’s a huge responsibility. How is Toby going to be as a dad? I’m sure perfect. And what does it mean for their relationship? How sad will she be that her father’s not here? There’s so many things going on, but she’s ultimately happy that she’s taking these necessary steps to be mentally and emotionally on the tracks, and physically on the tracks of where she’s supposed to be, and this goes to show she’s obviously very happy with Toby. It’s a new chapter of her life and I think one really that she never expected.”
During the interview, she also revealed that the character will go through a lot of emotional ups and downs during the course of the season. While it’s unclear how the showrunners will go ahead with the upcoming changes, the latest trailer for the next episode revealed that we won’t need to wait a long time to find out the changes. As for now, we will have to wait to find out what happens in the coming weeks.
