More about This Is Us 5 × 5
In episode five of the 5th season of This Is Us, Kate is central. After all, we know full well that all Pearsons have had their share of suffering. But it always seemed that Kate went over that quota because she was the character who had to fight the most to find herself in the series.
On the other hand, we cannot deny that she has never adapted to situations. So it was incredible to see how she finally managed to overcome her ghosts of the past.
Her relationship with Marc was abusive to the point that it had profound consequences for the character. She soon decided that even 20 years later, she had to confront her abuser in order to move on. So she finally sends the well-deserved “go to hell” to her ex-husband and tells about her new family.
On top of that, another positive thing about the new episode of This Is Us was also the way Toby has been with Kate all along. This newfound confidence finally allowed her to talk about her abortion. For her this was the hardest decision of her life, but she has no regrets because it would end in an insulting and toxic marriage.
