Miguel Could Actually Be More Likable than Kevin.
The lovers of “This Is Us” can tell you that Miguel actually starting to grow up is a statement thy never thought they would use. This is however the case as in (Season 2, Episode 11) where the Pearson clan is sitting in a circle, looking all uncomfortable as an addiction specialist guides kelvin towards opening up a group dialogue. On a normal occasion, this would be a family gathering at one of the Pearson’s lavishing homes.
This therapy is a result of the spiraling alcohol addicted to both pain killers and fame Kevin deciding to embark on a fast-speed highway drive with Tess, Beth and Randal’s young daughter, at the back seat. It was possible for the writers to make that an accident with Tess gone but they somehow knew that we would not take it. The couple had just had to go through uniting their foster daughter Deja to her biological mother and loosing Tess would have been too much.
Instead, Kevin is pulled up by a cop and when we pick back up with him, he has been in the rehab facility for three months working to reverse the damage he has done to himself and people around him.
This is why we are having the Pearson’s meeting which is a family thing meaning that Beth, Miguel and Toby are not invited. They therefore had to look for a place to spend the afternoon, a bar, that Toby thinks is ironic. It is during this session that we learn that Kevin feels ousted by the family. Everyone is busy with one thing or the other and he feels like a third wheel always so that makes him look for attention in media to get the admiration he didn’t get in his youth.
Basically, the basic law of attraction is what is at play here as Kevin is looking for what he never got to fill in the void but it never does. Miguel, who is all sweet top the Pearson’s, and a newbie to the group gets us focusing on the fact that he is married to his best friend’s wife. Not just any best friend, Jack Pearson’s who is too perfect for anyone to stand up to or as they like to refer to it, “no-fly zone”. Miguel knows his place which he is okay with and knows that to change it, it would require the reversal of the very fabric that weaves together the Pearson just like Kelvin. Their difference comes with the fact that Kevin will keep untying it until he makes amends and heals while on the other hand Miguel might just be the person to put it back together.
