The This Is Us Season 6 Episode 3 preview starts with the tagline for next week – “Being a father takes strength.” Then the new promo jumps right into the past with Jack struggling to take care of the Big Three.

In the trailer, Rebecca (Mandy Moore) reveals that Jack will take Kate, Randall, and Kevin to the movies for the first time. And they’re going on the adventure without her. She also says that they’re all going to have “so much fun.” But it doesn’t look like things will end well.

Little Kevin decides to leave the movie, and Jack doesn’t notice until it’s too late. Jack panics, and he’s seen searching for his son with Randall and Kate. Of course, we know Kevin will eventually be found. So now, we’re just wondering how Jack’s story will ultimately tie in to the present-day timeline.

Speaking of the present, the This Is Us Season 6 Episode 3 promo trailer continues right into some drama between Kevin and Madison (Caitlin Thompson). In the new preview, Kevin stares at his phone as one of his twins takes their first steps with Madison. But it looks like the actor has some explaining to do because he is seemingly at a bar with a brunette woman next to him – a date perhaps? 

Regardless, Kevin isn’t happy about missing out on the big moment because he starts arguing with Madison.

“There will be a million milestones. Not gonna be there for every one of them,” Madison says. Then Kevin shoots back, “You mean I’m not gonna be there for every one of them.”

Now, the preview for This Is Us Season 6 Episode 3, “Four Fathers,” just keeps getting more awkward. But first, some context. In the previous episode, Deja (Lyric Ross) lied to Randall (Sterling K. Brown) about staying over at a friend’s house when she was actually with Malik (Asante Blackk) in Boston. Then in the new teaser, Randall and Deja are in the car together, and the worst possible thing happens. 

Deja gets a text from Malik, and the car plays the message out loud. 

“Can’t sleep,” the message says. “The bed feels too big without you.”

Randall and Deja look horrified as the This Is Us promo ends.
