In the This Is Us Season 6 Episode 6 promo trailer, Beth reveals the fate of a dancing program rests on choosing the right dancers for the academy. Meanwhile, Watson told TVLine that her character will “pass the torch” in the next episode, and the new photos provided by NBC seemingly tease that storyline. 

In multiple pictures for This Is Us Season 6 Episode 6, Beth seems to be training a group of dancers throughout “Our Little Island Girl: Part Two.” It’s also possible one dancer named Stacey (Jazlyn Martin) stands out because the new character is with Beth solo on a few occasions. 

Now, will Beth’s hard work pay off in the next new episode of This Is Us? She seems to have a serious chat with Randall (Sterling K. Brown) at the theater alongside Annie (Faithe Herman), Tess (Eris Baker), and Deja (Lyric Ross). But in another photo, Beth seems to be smiling while looking at the stage. So hopefully, viewers are in for a beautiful full-circle moment.

Beth isn’t the only one facing challenges in This Is Us Season 6 Episode 6. The new promos for the Feb. 22 episode also show Kevin in a pickle. In the preview, Madison (Caitlin Thompson) reveals that she doesn’t want to spend Thanksgiving with the Pearsons in Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, a photo shows Elijah (Adam Korson) and Kevin in an argument outside. 

That said, it’s possible that the fight between Kevin and Elijah doesn’t amount to anything. In another picture, Kevin smiles at Elijah over a meal with Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Madison. Toby (Chris Sullivan) is also seen kissing Elijah on the forehead. So maybe there won’t be too much drama in the upcoming episode.

Whatever happens between Kevin, Madison, and Elijah in episode 6 of This Is Us Season 6, it seems possible that the story will tie into the past. In the preview, young Kevin (Logan Shroyer) and Sophie (Amanda Leighton) stumble upon Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Matt (Matt Corboy) as they come back from what looks like a date. 

Meanwhile, the This Is Us photos show Sophie and Kevin together. But Kevin doesn’t exactly look too happy. The pictures also highlight Rebecca and Miguel (Jon Huertas) cooking together. The teasers don’t show how Miguel reacts to Matt’s presence. However, we suspect his reaction would be similar to Kevin’s. But for now, This Is Us fans will have to wait and see what happens next.

This Is Us Season 6 Episode 6 airs Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2022.
