This Is Us Season 5 Spoilers: Kevin’s Hope For Rebecca, But Will There Be Enough Time?
This Is Us season 5 spoilers reveal that Rebecca Pearson (Mandy Moore) was diagnosed with a degenerative mental decline, which means it won’t ever get better. She has good days and bad days. As time goes on, the good days will become rarer. There is one hope that Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) has for his mom, but will there be enough time to make it come true?
Rebecca Pearson’s Mental Decline
This Is Us season 5 spoilers reveal that Rebecca was supposed to go into a clinical trial. Even though she wanted to spend her good days with family while she still could, Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown) insisted on it. However, that plan was scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She has her good days, but we have also seen some bad days and that will only happen more often.
Randall Pearson’s Good Intentions
Kevin and Randall have always battled each other and dealing with Rebecca’s health is no different. While Randall wants to give his mom the best chance possible, Kevin wants her to be able to enjoy the good days while they are still there. Randall has good intentions and he’s not wrong, but Kevin isn’t wrong either. It’s a tough situation that everyone would react to differently.
This Is Us Season 5 Spoilers: One Wish
Speaking to TV Line, Hartley talked about this season’s storylines. One included how Kevin is dealing with Rebecca’s diagnosis. The actor explained that Kevin knows what the future holds for his mother. He’s well aware of it, but he has one wish for Rebecca and that’s for her to hold the twins when they are born. He said,
“I think he wants to make sure that he has these babies and his mom meets them and spends as much time with them as she possibly can have. And also maybe that might actually…sometimes when you spend time around animals or babies or whatever it slows down the demise of your disease. So he’s definitely aware of all of that.”
