‘This Is Us’ Season 6: Sophie’s Husband, Grant, Will Come Up Again, Show Writer Promises

NBC’s This Is Us Season 6 Episode 13 brought Sophie Inman and Kevin Pearson to the forefront. Sophie and Kevin have a long relationship history, as they were once married. They parted ways years before Kate Pearson’s wedding in episode 13, but various clues have fans believing they’ll get back together. On the other hand, the show writer promises fans will hear more about Sophie’s husband, Grant, before the This Is Us Season 6 finale.

Does Kevin end up with Sophie on ‘This Is Us’ Season 6? Some fans think all signs point to yes

Kevin and Sophie have a lot of history, and many fans believe she spent the night with Kevin before Kate’s wedding. So, do they end up together by the This Is Us Season 6 finale?

Kevin actor Justin Hartley continues to hint at the possibility of the exes getting back together. “Well, there could be something there,” he told Extra in 2021. “I don’t know. There could be something there. I do know, but I can’t say. There might be something there, but there might not be something there.”

Hartley recently dropped another hint suggesting fans should anticipate a Kevin and Sophie grand reunion. “I think there’s a big percentage of people that want Kevin to be with Sophie,” Hartley told Entertainment Weekly. “I also think there’s a big percentage of people that don’t want that because they’re like, ‘Jesus, how many times are these guys going to get together and ruin each other’s lives?’ But I would say that the debate is usually Madison or Sophie. And it’s hard to beat a love interest that you’ve had 5 five years old.”

Sophie’s husband, Grant, comes up again, according to writer Jon Dorsey

After Sophie and Kevin went their separate ways, Sophie went on to date and marry a man named Grant. It’s unclear where Sophie and Grant stand in This Is Us Season 6 Episode 13. She attends Kate’s wedding without Grant, and she doesn’t appear to wear the engagement or wedding ring he bought her. Instead, she’s sporting her grandmother’s emerald ring, which likely signifies the end of Sophie and Grant’s marriage.

Will fans hear more about Sophie and Grant before the This Is Us Season 6 finale? The showrunners say yes.

Entertainment Weekly asked episode 13 writer Jon Dorsey about Grant and Sophie. Dorsey confirmed that Sophie and Grant did get married. But fans likely remember Sophie telling Kevin that she had a “long story” about her current marriage. Fans can anticipate hearing more about this in the future.

“I’ll say this,” Dorsey said. “If you don’t get it in the next episode, you’ll certainly get it by the end of this season.”

Randall actor Sterling K. Brown says he knows exactly who Kevin ends up with by the finale

This Is Us Season 6 Episode 14 delves into what happened with Kevin and the mystery woman before Kate’s wedding in episode 13. And Randall actor Sterling K. Brown says he knows exactly what goes down.

“And I also want to say to that dude who plays Kevin Pearson, the homey. Oh, J. Hart. He’s been exceptional this whole season. And I don’t know who he’s going to end up with, you guys!” Brown joked on Instagram. “I do know who he’s going to end up with,” he whispered to the camera. “But you guys don’t. And I would never ruin that for anybody. And I’m kind of like Madison and Beth, like, look at you cats. What’s gonna happen over there?”

We look forward to learning about everything that happened in Kevin’s hotel room — and what occurred with Sophie and Grant.

This Is Us Season 6 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
