Justin Hartley's Kevin on "This Is Us" experienced a trajectory moment in the latest episode, titled "There," as he began his journey to fatherhood. The episode before ended as a cliffhanger, leaving fans worried about Kevin's safety.

He has been in a frantic rush on his way to Los Angeles after his fiancé Madison [Caitlin Thompson], went into labor six weeks earlier before her due date.

Kevin's drive to the airport was all in a bid to make it in time for his twin's birth, but it seems he had a delay of sorts on the road, with fans getting a teaser that showed his wallet and license outside of a burning car.

Apparently, Kevin had pulled over on his way to help an accident victim and must have lost his license and wallet while carrying the victim. This pointed out that he might have issues with the TSA agent at the hospital.

In the new episode, a flashback moment to the new dad's life showed a father-son moment with his dad, Jack. It also had Jack reminiscing on his own childhood and the dynamics of his relationship with his own father.

Their legal discourse started in July, and by December 2020, the settlement was signed by both parties.

Jack's father, Stanley, had been an alcoholic, and their relationship was rocky. Jack strived to build a better relationship with Kevin, who wants his dad's legacy to live on in his twins.

Last month, "This is Us" creators announced that there would be no new episodes because of a hitch due to the novel coronavirus. The next airing was a repetition, promising that the more recent episodes were big ones.

Earlier this year, the TV show and other series returned to work after the festive break and a surge in the COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles. This had the LA County Department advising production companies to consider closing down.

It is safe to say that Justin Hartley's life is quite different from that of his character role, Kevin. Presently, Hartley and his spouse, Chrishell Stause, have finalized their divorce.
