According to the most recent promo, This Is Us Season 6 Episode 13 will shift the series' present-day storyline several years into the future, to the day of Kate's (Chrissy Metz) second wedding. This small-time jump also appears to be our new present-day, as we take up the threads of multiple narratives that only started a couple of episodes ago and follow them through to maturity.
This Is Us Season 6 Episode 13: Kevin's room is strewn with women's clothing
Although This Is Us Season 6 Episode 13, The Day of the Wedding, is centered on an event that is all about Kate, the drama appears to be coming from other members of the Pearson family.
Kevin (Justin Hartley) still doesn't seem to have figured out his complicated love life, and it's possible that he's involved in anything secret—and maybe adulterous? The night before his sister's wedding, he had a fling.
“Kevin is having a secret wedding weekend romance,” Madison says as she walks through Kevin’s hotel room littered with women’s clothing.
“Who do you think he slept with last night?” Beth asks.
Who is the woman in Kevin’s room?
Kevin and Sophie are said to have been reuniting in This Is Us Season 6 Episode 13. Is she the mystery woman with whom he allegedly spent the night?
While anything is possible in the lead-up to the episode, fans believe the clothing is a red herring. They suspect the clothes belong to Rebecca Pearson, according to a Reddit user. In the trailer, Rebecca is struggling with Alzheimer's disease.
“My theory is that the mystery woman is … Rebecca,” the fan wrote. “She doesn’t seem to remember that Jack is gone, may not remember she’s married to Miguel, and would likely feel uncomfortable rooming with him.
The fan added: “Plus, the amount of women’s clothing in the closet means whoever the woman is wasn’t an impromptu one-night stand. Beth and Madison assuming the clothes mean he hooked up with someone is just misdirection.”
This Is Us Season 6 Episode 13 spoilers
This Is Us Season 6 Episode 13 will "fill in the blanks of what everyone's been up to over the last five years," according to show executive producers and co-showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, confirming our theory that the rest of the season will mostly follow the characters after Kate's wedding, rather than circling back to the events immediately following the Saturday in the Park episode.
This Is Us Season 6 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
