Kate Pearson’s Secret
This Is Us season 5 spoilers previously teased that we would learn more about what happened to Kate when she was younger. Many viewers speculated it had something to do with her abusive boyfriend, Marc (Austin Abrams). As seen during the last episode before the show went on a break, Kate ended up pregnant. As of right now, we don’t know how she handled the unplanned pregnancy. She had never told a soul about the baby, not even her siblings or her mother.
“It’s going to be really interesting to see what ends up unfolding as it pertains to that really huge event in her life. It’s something she never, like ever, was sharing with anybody, and never had.”
Opening Up To Toby Damon
Taking a huge step forward, Kate opened up to Toby Damon (Chris Sullivan) about what happened. Even though it was painful to bring it up and let it out there, the actress admits that it’s progress for Kate. She explained that keeping that secret for so many years is linked to Kate’s relationship with food.

This Is Us season 5 spoilers reveal that Metz really couldn’t give out any big spoilers, but she did give several reasons why Kate might be missing. She said,
“I’d like to just tell people that Kate does run errands. She might have things to do! She could have gotten the car washed. Who knows? I say not to fret. Also, if she’s not alive, guys: Nobody’s ever really gone. I mean, we see that with Jack [Pearson, Milo Ventimiglia]. So, not to worry either way.”
