This time, the drama series added the context of the coronavirus.
This Wednesday, November 11, at 23, on Fox Premium Series, it will be possible to see the third chapter of the fifth season de la serie This is Us, one of the most popular productions of recent times.
Going back and forth through time, in the first two episodes of the new installment, the Pearsons gathered at the cabin to celebrate the 40th birthday of the “Big Three,” although Randall (Sterling K. Brown) broke with family tradition and did not attend.
After apparent improvement, Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore) symptoms of illness returned and triggered an episode of memory loss on the street.
In turn, Kevin (Justin Hartley) proposed to Madison (Caitlin Thompson), after running to the emergency hospital to check the health of the babies.
In the third chapter, Kevin and Madison will begin their recent engagement, while Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby (Chris Sullivan) will take a big step in the adoption process.
At the same time, in a jump to the past, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca will be seen preparing to face puberty for their children.
Thus the new season will continue to investigate Rebecca’s illness, the estrangement between Kevin and Randall and Kevin’s new relationship with Madison.
Also, after one of the biggest twists in history yet, what really happened to Randall’s biological mother after her birth will be revealed.
The plot is framed in a context that is very familiar to everyone: the characters appear with masks and make references to the coronavirus.
Social distance, video calls and anguish are part of the script that the producers devised. The inclusion of the disease was the most talked about among fans.
A good part of the followers celebrated that the issue of Covid 19 is discussed because, according to them, it added a more emotional side to the story. Many highlighted Beth Pearson’s phrase about contingency: “Nothing is forever, except us.”
But there were also those who were not enthusiastic about this proposal. “This is not the fifth season of This Is Us that I tried to get me out of reality for a while “,” in This is Us the coronavirus was literally in every scene so far “,” 2 seconds of This Is Us and the presence of the coronavirus already angered me, it is no longer enough in real life, “was the tone of the reactions that disapproved of the series’ decision.
Too, This Is Us made references to the social crisis caused by the assassination of George Floyd in the United States in June. The saga tends to give messages of diversity and anti racism, so this time it was no exception.
