The trailer for This Is Us Season 6 Episode 5 teased some uncomfortable moments between Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Cassidy (Jennifer Morrison). But the new photos indicate that the two could have a pleasant time together in Pennsylvania. 

In one photo, Cassidy and Kevin smile at each other while doing the dishes. They also appear happy at dinner with Edie (Vanessa Bell Calloway) and Nicky (Griffin Dunne). So could the This Is Us team be hinting that Kevin and Cassidy end up together? It seems like a stretch, considering Cassidy previously chose to be with her husband and son.

Whatever happens between Cassidy and Kevin, This Is Us Season 6 Episode 5 will update fans on Edie and Nicky. Previously, Nicky met Edie, who is a flight attendant, on his way back to Pennsylvania from California. The two flirted, and fans found out that Edie is Nicky’s wife in the future. So hopefully, the Feb. 1 episode will dive into the couple’s new love story a bit more.

Meanwhile, the new photos released by NBC show Deja having a serious conversation with Tess (Eris Baker) and Annie (Faithe Herman). Now, is Deja getting some advice from her sisters? We’ll have to wait and see. But whatever Malik and Deja have to share with the family, it seems the next episode of This Is Us won’t be all about drama. In one photo, Randall and Beth find some time to share a sweet kiss.

Although Kevin will go to Pennsylvania in This Is Us Season 6 Episode 5, it seems the character will still be spending some time in LA.

But does Elijah’s return mean anything for Madison and Kevin’s future? Only time will tell at this point.
