SPIEGEL SIGNAL: Do not read if you have not yet seen our "Little Island Girl," the 13th episode of Season 3 of "It's Us".
It took until the middle of the third season of the NBC family drama "This Is Us" to explore Bet's prehistory (Susan Kelechs Watson), and it turned out she lost her father as a teenager.
In "Our Little Island Girl," Beth and her cousin Zoya (Melanie) Liburd) visited Phylicia Rashad's mother after she hurt her thigh. Returning to his childhood home, Beth recalls his youth of dance, the rigorous training he went through to be seen as a soloist in the school (as well as professional post-graduate jobs) and how his father (Carl Lumble ) has worked extraordinary to pay for everything. Her father finished with lung cancer and died when her husband Randall (Stirling K. Brown) lost his own father, Jack (Milo Ventimila).
"This is a scenario where I really had to dig deeper. Here, Watson talks about the dance training she was engaging at the end of the episode series where Beth rediscovers her childhood passion, working with Rashad, what she learned about Beth from Rachel's observation. Naomi Hilson plays the teenage version of the hero and the difference in how Bet hurts his father's loss of how Randall mourn his.
