Will Kevin and Sophie get back together? “This Is Us” Season 6 Episode 14 cemented their relationship
Kevin and Sophie are officially back together after It’s us Season 6 Episode 14, and many fans are excited to see them reunite after their past issues. The episode gave Kevin three possible options for various romances, but it was clear from the start that Sophie was his first choice. Fans also learned that Sophie and her husband, Grant, have divorced, leaving room for Kevin to move on.
“I think we were all hoping we could make it happen,” Sophie actress Alexandra Breckenridge told People of Kevin and Sophie’s reunion. “…I don’t mean soul mates, because I don’t know if that applies, but I think they have this magnetic attraction to each other. And they have that kind of crush that has never left them.”
Some fans spotted a plot with the Valentine’s Day card
It’s us Season 6 Episode 14 returned to Kevin and Sophie in elementary school. Kevin had Valentine’s Day cards written for the girls in the class. And once the teacher introduced Sophie to the class as a new student, Kevin wrote her one too. He’s kept the Valentine’s Day card in his wallet over the years, and in Episode 14 he told Sophie that he’s always had this card since he was a kid. When he finally shows her the card, they kiss.
Reddit fans have questions about the validity of Valentine’s Day. “Kevin lost his wallet in Season 5 Episode 7 as he helps the man in the car accident while trying to get back to Madison,” the Reddit user wrote. “It’s a pretty huge hole because his lost wallet was a big problem in his ability to get home. People keep telling me that obviously he just didn’t keep Valentine’s in his wallet all the time, especially when he was with Madison, but that would negate the idea that he “always carried it.” with him”.
Editor Danielle Bauman confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Kevin also keeps Valentine’s Day in his wallet the whole time. “He loves putting things in his wallet: he put this baseball card in there,” Bauman noted. “…That was Kevin’s thing. Like his dad, he likes to keep a little treasure box, you know?
How did Kevin and Sophie meet? Some fans are confused by their story
Kevin and Sophie first met when Sophie moved to town as a child. It’s us Season 6 Episode 14 dwelled on their humble beginnings when they were both in school together as kids. “I was head over heels in love with you the moment I saw you,” Kevin told Sophie.
After going to school together, they then reconnected on Kate’s 10th birthday party. Kate and Sophie were best friends. But this timeline seems to run counter to other iterations of Sophie and Kevin’s humble beginnings. In the past, the couple have explained that they met exclusively through Kate.
“The second problem is that this episode makes it look like Kevin and Sophie met in class when she was the new student, but literally this whole show we’ve been told he met Sophie through Kate , that she was Kate’s friend first,” the Reddit user noted.
Other Reddit users noted that Kevin said in a past episode that he met Sophie in fourth grade. This adds a whole new iteration to the first time they met, as it makes them look older than they appeared in the episode 14 flashback.
Despite the possible plot holes, many fans are happy to accept that Kevin and Sophie reunited.
It’s us Season 6 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
