    Beth continues to impress. She is amazing. Nice to see a flashback of William. Randall is sailing down the river in Egypt.

    Looking forward to seeing what happens with Kate and Mark.

    Rebecca singing "Storybook Love" from the Princess Bride was my favorite part of the episode. I think it's time to rewatch that movie.

    The young actors playing the kids really are stupendous. Especially feeling the performances of Young Beth (I keep on wondering if that is Susan Kelechi Watson CGI'ed--her performance is equally nuanced and matching) and Young Kate.

    My first thought was that he is going to abuse her in some way, but I don't think we've seen any sign of that, though I'm usually multi taking and don't always pick up on subtleties.

    That was my thought. An unhealthy relationship in some way.

    I think she'll get pregnant.

    I think it's an abuse storyline. Pregnancy is another good guess but it doesn't quite match up for me because (1) the dialogue with Rebecca saying "I should have seen what was happening" and Kate replying "I didn't see it either" doesn't really match up with a pregnancy, which presumably Kate at least would have known was occurring and (2) I think if it was a pregnancy/miscarriage/abortion story there would have been hints of it during the infertility storyline, but there weren't any hints at all of a past pregnancy or anything like "I'm scared that my past is the reason I can't get pregnant now," and I can't believe these writers would have passed up exploring that angle if they were planning a "teenage Kate pregnancy" subplot.

    I thought about there not being any hint of a previous pregnancy during the infertility storyline, but decided that they could easily insert a new flashback with it being discussed. I'm terrible at guessing where the story is going so I won't be at all surprised that young Kate was never pregnant. It's just what I thought of when they had the conversation.

    I don't think it will be the abuse route they take. They get us thinking its abuse with what they said but I feel like it will be something out of left field like possibly drug abuse and the boyfriend commits suicide or something.

    I really hope it's not an abuse story line...

    I think you're right on this, though not really out of left field.

    I almost forgot about the ice cream slices! I've never done that and don't ever remember seeing it done. I thought it was awesome.

    It makes me want to buy a box of rectangular ice cream again, or to work wonders on a circular pint. :)

    Episode 6 The Club

    I'm glad Kate and Toby got their groove back. As someone who has yoyo'ed on weight, I get Kate asking if Toby really wanted to throw away the nice pants. I have 3 different sizes of clothes in my closet. But I also understand Toby seeing that as Kate not thinking he could keep the weight off or hoping he wouldn't keep the weight off. It's such a complex issue and as I've said before, I think this show is handling the weight issue very realistically. It's a tough thing and I don't remember another show that has tackled it head on the way this show does. Chrissy Metz is amazing.

    And the racial and socio-economic issues with golf are tackled in this episode, too. Randall really played the game and played it well thanks to Jack's lesson.

    Kevin and Cassidy, dang, I was hoping they wouldn't go there. But they did. Will be interesting to see what happens next.

    Have they ever shown a picture or flashback of Jack and Rebecca's wedding? I feel like we have an it wasn't anything like Rebecca's dad is describing, but I really don't remember.

    Of course it was. And what a prescient pose between Rebecca and her current husband there . . . .

    Enjoyed “Dinner and the Date” episode:
    — Beth and “real talk”.
    — Kevin saying the nerdy teacher is a grown up Randall.
    — Rebecca setting Jack straight about his role.

    Still not crazy about Déjà’s love interest though.
