Kevin, with Zoe in tow, is visiting Mr. Robinson, Jack's Vietnam War colleague. In wanting to discover the truth about his father's time in the war, Kevin may discover more information than he was prepared for. In the process, Zoe may come to some conclusions about her relationship with Kevin.

Did You Know?


Charles Robinson played different Vietnam veterans on first run-episodes of two series that aired on the same night (October 23rd, 2018). He played Don Robinson in this episode of This Is Us, and Ray Jennings in NCIS: Fragments (2018). See more »


After Miguel gives them the new piano, Kate opens it and plays four or five notes from Switchfoot's "I Dare You to Move". The song wasn't released until 2000, meaning she played it a few years before the song existed. This also serves as a nice Easter egg for fans of Mandy Moore, as this song was on the soundtrack of "A Walk to Remember", which Moore starred in. See more »

I'm so glad this show has rebounded after last week's terrible episode "Vietnam." This one is packed with the kind of thought-provoking, deeply poignant scenes that we've come to live and expect. Bravo!
