‘This Is Us’ Sophie and Kevin relationship recap

When Alexandra Breckenridge first joined the cast of This Is Us, it was in season 1. Kevin tried to win Sophie back by meeting her at the diner where they spent so much of their relationship in New York City. The pair met when they were 10-years-old and were inseparable throughout high school.

They moved to New York after high school and got married on a whim, without telling their families. However, the marriage didn’t last long. Kevin cheated on Sophie, and they decided to go their separate ways.

When they rekindled their relationship in the season 1 finale of This Is Us. They dated for a few episodes until Kevin fell more heavily into alcohol addiction. The last the two saw each other was in season 4 when Sophie’s mother died. Kevin flew to Pittsburgh to be there for his ex-wife. The two finally watched the end of Good Will Hunting together and seemed to have some closure.

However, the look on Sophie’s face in season 5, episode 12 showed something unexpected. She smiled, laughed, and then looked like she might cry when she saw the news of Kevin and Madison’s engagement in a tabloid.

Many viewers hope that Sophie and Kevin will reconnect on This Is Us. However, others feel that Kevin should end up with Madison.

“She is noted as a special guest star in the promotion for the next episode,” one fan wrote on Reddit. “Jennifer Morrison also listed in the credits in that promo. Guess we will see Tuesday, but it’s interesting both of them are in the opening credits.”

“If she doesn’t know, that’s probably not a good sign, right?” asked another Redditor. “Assuming they would’ve filmed the final scene already with all the kids aging over time.”
