‘This Is Us’ Episode Guide (Oct. 18): William is Reported as a Loiterer

“The Pool” (10/18/16) – Rebecca and Jack take Kevin, Kate, and Randall to the community pool on a hot day and quickly realize each child is going through their own struggles.

Kevin auditions for his first Broadway play in New York and meets a determined actress who is less than impressed by him.

Meanwhile, Toby runs into his ex-wife while at a restaurant with Kate, which sends Kate into a spiral of self-doubt. And later, William is mistakenly reported as a loiterer in Randall’s predominately white neighborhood, which exposes deep-rooted issues of race.

Sometimes life will surprise you. Starring Mandy Moore (“A Walk to Remember”), Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes,” “Gilmore Girls”) and Sterling K. Brown (“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), this refreshingly honest and provocative series follows a unique ensemble. As their paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways, we find that several of them share the same birthday, and so much more than anyone would expect. From the writer and directors of “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” comes a smart, modern dramedy that will challenge your everyday presumptions about the people you think you know.

Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones also star.

Dan Fogelman, Donald Todd, John Requa, Glenn Ficarra, Ken Olin, Charlie Gogolak and Jess Rosenthal executive produce. “This Is Us” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
