What You Need To Know:
In “The Right Thing to Do,” the Pearsons find out that they’re going to have triplets. Jack resorts to asking his abusive father for money which he then uses as a down payment for a house. Cut to the future. Toby, Kate’s boyfriend, is diagnosed as having a heart arrhythmia. When it’s also discovered he has a septal defect and needs surgery, Kate realizes she loves Toby. After surgery, they discuss marriage. Meanwhile, Randall struggles to accept his father’s homosexual lifestyle. While talking to William, Randall discovers William’s chemotherapy is no longer effective. Kevin encounters problems in his relationship with Sloane when Olivia suddenly returns.
“The Right Thing to Do” addresses life’s hard decisions. Jack is shown having to sell his cherished Chevelle and face his estranged, abusive father so he can provide a home for his growing family. Toby’s surgery forces Kate to realize the depth of her feelings for him. Kevin has to decide whether to pursue a relationship with Olivia or Sloane. The episode is real and raw. Each decision is shown in its importance, complexity, and messiness. However, this episode has a strong Romantic, politically correct, pro-homosexual worldview with significant foul language and a reference to using a hallucinogen with a pagan shaman. So, it’s the most objectionable episode in the first season of THIS IS US.
