Season 4 final It's us he left us so many questions. The most important in everyone's minds are the accounts of Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown). The two brothers have always had close relations, but they did so well this season that we almost forgot.
Fans speculate in different ways why the brothers are fighting. According to showrunner Dan Fogelman, one of the ideas is more likely than the others. Let's look at all three now.
Does the fight between Randall and Kevin have anything to do with Randall's daughter Tess?
In the episode of November 19, 2019, Tess (Eris Baker) has an internal conflict about leaving school with his friends that he is gay. Kevin helps her overcome the fight, and she finally informs her friends via an Instagram post.
Some fans think something is going on after he tells his friends that Randall blames Kevin for heartache.
"Maybe he is nervous about the bond between Kevin and Tess," wrote one of the fans on Reddit, "and with him helped her out to people."
In the autumn finals, Randall seems happy that Tess's friends have received the news well. So it doesn't seem very likely that the prolapse will end.
Two theories about the fight relate to Rebecca's deteriorating condition
Other fans speculate that the fight between Randall and Kevin is due to their mother Rebecca and her weakening health. Some fans think Kevin is upset because Randall didn't tell him about memory loss before. Other viewers think this may be because Randall tries to force Rebecca to take more aggressive treatment after receiving a diagnosis.
"I assume this is because he keeps problems with Rebecca's memory and the doctors visit the secret of the twins?" Written by one user on Instagram.
"And we'll see this argument later in editing the flashback," added another fan.
"I bet they're pissed at Randall because he knew he was demented and didn't tell them," another viewer on Reddit wrote.
"Or it may happen that Rebecca is not talking to Randall," – theorized another fan – "if, after being diagnosed, he will press for a more aggressive approach than he is willing to accept."
"It can also be possible," replied one of the viewers. "I saw Kevin being pissed off when he finds out a few months later and feels betrayed by Randall because he is the mother of them all, while Randall seems to like the grievances."
"But I still feel it's not Randall's character," added another fan. "I feel that the argument you have when the parent is in this state is really small compared to what is happening. I can't imagine a scenario in which Randall did something so terrible that they would forbid him to see Rebecca. "
Fans are annoyed why Randall and Kevin are not talking, nine months in the future. However, they seem to agree that this has something to do with Rebecca's health and what will happen to her in the coming months.
Producer Dan Fogelman confirms one theory of fans
While the theories about the fall between Randall and Kevin are spreading, the showrunner, Fogelman, at least narrowed it down for fans.
"One of them was a benefactor who could not do anything wrong, and the other was a kind of charmer and someone who could worry a little," Fogelman told People about Randall and Kevin. "When something suddenly happens to a single parent who both have problems with – and one of them has kept a secret, and other things appear – it would probably not be unthinkable that this could be the reason I'm not saying next year. "
Although there may be other factors here, it seems that many of the reasons why the brothers do not speak are due to Randall keeping secret of Rebecca's health problems. We'll find out more when It's us returns to NBC on January 14, 2020.
