This is Us Season 4 Episode 11 Recap:
‘This is Us’ season 4 episode 11 is titled ‘A Hell of a Week: Part One.’
The Randall-centric episode sees him on the brink of losing his mind over his overwhelming anxiety. Life hasn’t always been fair and easy for our man. Through a flashback, we see the head of the Pearson family, Jack Pearson, asking a young Randall “to be brave,” before putting the kids to bed, hinting at his other children Kevin and Kate’s uppity lifestyle. And Randall being the obedient one, tries to sleep but ends up staring at the ceiling, the whole night. His insomnia, triggered by nightmares only gets worse in college. Beth supports him and calms him down through it all, suggesting therapy. But obviously, he skips.
Meanwhile, we get a big reveal of who the terrifying man with the knife is. Well, our man Randall, smart-talks the intruder by offering him some money if he leaves immediately. As the man goes, a shocked Randall starts hyperventilating. Randall decides to spend the night alone in the house and sends Beth and the girls to a hotel. He ends up watching ‘The Great British Baking Show’ and talking to Kevin, narrating the ordeal but skipping the relevant questions regarding his mental health.
The next morning, Randall is unable to focus on work because of the notifications from his home-cam. Darnell gets annoyed at first but suggest therapy (which Randall ignores saying “Running suits me just fine”) when he learns about the break-in. The next moment, as Randall is running down the street, he spots a man and a woman, struggling in a parking lot and on realizing the woman needs help, Randall beats the crap out of the man, breaking his hand in the process.
People at work laud him for his courage but a bewildered Randall rushes home, calls Kevin and breaks down, saying, “I lied, man. I need a catch. I’m not OK. He could’ve done something to Beth (referring to the earrings that went missing from Beth’s room). He could’ve done something to my girls.” Kevin tries to calm his brother down but excuses himself saying he is in the middle of something. As the episode ends, we get a not-so-clear look at a woman lying on the bed, next to Kevin.
Well, praise the makers! Randall’s fine.
