THIS IS US brings audiences a very special episode of actors in cars. Although most of the story is on autopilot, Justin Hartleyโ€™s (Kevin) driven performance steers us toward an inevitable red light- aka a cliffhanger. Itโ€™s fun to see him back behind the wheel as the lead, even if the cliched plot involves him โ€œliterallyโ€ losing his identity.

Although the show is incorporating COVID into the narrative, itโ€™s crippling the story at times. Less time together equals more awkward phone calls with actors saying their emotions versus showing them.

Hereโ€™s hoping that Kevin makes it those 500 miles home so we donโ€™t have to watch him travel 500 more next week on NBC / Peacock.
