OK fine I've took a turn on the other sibling stories. They've been pretty good. But man, the therapist scene last night was killer. Pamela Adlon is a NATIONAL TREASURE and unbelievably underappreciated.

Randall was close, but then he disregarded everything she said and doubled down on his hero complex

Haven't seen this yet but I'm so glad Pamela Adlon is getting some great acting work. One of the more successful jumps from primarily voice acting to live action acting.

Man Randall and Kevin's low blows fight was a crazy scene. Very well directed.

Kevin may have twins with Madison but I still think he marries someone else. I would guess Sophie and Cassidy are in next season based on having a scene in this episode, which wouldn't be necessary if it was all about Madison going forward.

Finally watched the finale. I was expecting it to be more emotional, but man, it was still good. Those words between Randall and Kevin were killer. But Kevin showed immediate regret while I don't think Randall had any regret for what he said first. I'm anxious to see if they show Randall having more of a breakdown of his character next season.

Wedding ring on Nicky's hand in the future scene. I hope that means Griffin Dunne remains with the show next season, he's been a great addition to the cast. I missed him in the second half of the season.

So does this mean Randall and Kevin don't speak at all until they meet at Rebecca's bedside in the future?

I also hope we get more of Rebecca and Miguel's relationship beginnings next season. We've been kept in the dark mostly of them getting together.

Kevin has to get back with Sophie before the show ends right? Although I'm curious about the Cassidy appearance. If it's not Sophie, it could be her. But in the short term, he's engaged by their 40th birthday (as seen in the Thanksgiving episode). Will that be Madison? I remember him saying his fiancee is sick in that flash forward, but don't remember if it was morning sickness.

Damn, it's a long wait until September, if it even comes back by then.

Predictions

- It’s revealed Kevin has a new “big 3” - 2 kids with Madison, 1 kid with a different wife (Sophie/Cassidy)
- Kevin falls for Madison eventually, but she dies in childbirth due to complications from being bulimic
- Rebecca thinks Nicky is Jack in the flash forward, so he put on the ring to make it easier for her
- Kevin and Randall make up within a year of their fight.

The Randall's mother episode and the birth episode were both great

Gave up long ago? It's only Season 5 and shorter-than-normal seasons at that.

I love this show. I hated Kevin in the first season, but I find his storyline the most interesting right now personally. Still dealing with his father's death years later, I feel a connection to that.

I thought they crow-barred COVID into the storyline a little too forcefully at first and made it too much of the focal point, but it's good now.

The amount of time and care they put into Nicky's storyline is wonderful. His evolution since Season 3 (and since we found out he wasn't dead like Jack said) has been one of the most lovely storylines. I'm also glad they brought back Jennifer Morrison to show us their cute friendship. Griffin Dunne was fantastic in that scene with the twins.

Great episode this week with a complicated subject, I wish they admitted Randall has as many flaws as Kevin, but maybe that will be a future episode

I think Kevin and Madison still end up together. Madison has been a much more developed/better character than Sophie. I saw Kate and Toby breaking up in the future coming though not her getting remarried.
