What You Need To Know:
“Pilgrim Rick” is the eighth episode of NBC’s series of THIS IS US. The Pearsons head out on a road trip to go to Rebecca’s parents’ house for Thanksgiving. On the way, their car blows a tire, forcing them to abandon the dinner with grandparents and stay at a local motel instead. In the present day, Thanksgiving is at Randall’s house, and Kevin brings his girlfriend, Olivia. Kate decides to take a break from seeing Toby to gain clarity about what to do regarding her own weight and life plans. Beth, Randall’s wife, warns Rebecca she needs to tell Randall about how long she’s known Randall’s biological father, William, but Randall finds out the truth before she can tell him.
“Pilgrim Rick” stresses the idea that life is short, so we ought to be making the most of the time by loving deeply, treasuring the now and refusing to live by fear. The episode also addresses the consequences of deception when Randall discovers his adoptive mother’s secret. Witnessing the Pearson family traditions is incredibly heartwarming, but the “Pilgrim Rick” episode contains brief foul language and verbal references to adultery, so caution is advised.
