This Is Us Season 5 Spoilers: Mandy Moore Dishes On Rebecca’s Health and The Clinical Trial
NBC This Is Us season 5 spoilers reveal that one of the stories that will continue is Rebecca Pearson’s (Mandy Moore) Alzheimer’s disease and the clinical trial. The actress discussed these points, along with what else fans can expect to see in the upcoming season. She also explained whether the show will be delayed or not due to the shutdown.
Rebecca Pearson’s Alzheimer Story
As fans recall from last season, Rebecca started having memory and cognitive issues. Eventually, it was revealed that she was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. It made the relationship between Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown) and Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) pretty volatile. Kevin not being informed about his mother’s condition was just the tip of the iceberg. The two brothers also had completely different ideas about their mother’s care.
This Is Us Season 5 Spoilers: Clinical Trial
Moore told TV Insider that we will see the continuation of Rebecca’s health story. As for whether she was pushed into the clinical trial, the actress indicated Rebecca had other ideas on how she wanted to spend her “best days.” As most know, Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease and Rebecca will likely get worse. At some point, she might not even recognize her own children.
She really wanted to enjoy the moments of actually being part of the family and her grandchildren as much as possible. Not to spend it on a clinical trial in another location that might not even work.
What Else To Expect
This Is Us season 5 spoilers also reveal that Kevin will be dealing with quite a bit. He has his hands full with his career, family, and adjusting to becoming a father. Plus, we will see the beginning of Rebecca’s romance with Miguel Rivas (Jon Huertas).
