Read on for the cheesy and heartwarming details of “The Night Before the Wedding.”
[Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers from This Is Us Season 6 Episode 14, “The Night Before the Wedding.”]
Kevin waits for Sophie to arrive in ‘This Is Us’ season 6 episode 14
The beginning of We are Season 6 Episode 14 sees six-year-old Kevin writing Valentines for the girls in his class. The time then moves forward to the day before Kate and Phillip’s wedding. Kevin is watching Arielle sing “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley. Cassidy also stops by before the rehearsal dinner to tell Kevin that she looks good and he returns the sentiment for her.
Randall then walks up to his brother and calls him out for staring at the door all day, waiting for Sophie to arrive at the scene. Randall warns Kevin that Sophie is a married woman and that she is not to “cause any trouble at her sister’s wedding.” And just as Kevin claims that he and Sophie are “great” and that there’s “nothing to worry about,” Sophie walks in and they share longing looks.
Sophie greets Rebecca, who she thinks is still in college and trying to work long distance with Kevin, who is watching them from afar. Arielle runs to Kevin and hugs him to get away from one of Phillip’s drunk family members. He leaves her to go to Sophie, but Madison and her twins intercept him.
Later, Kevin finds Sophie trying to locate her missing luggage at the concierge. He offers to drive her into town to find new clothes since her husband, Grant, was unable to attend the wedding. All the stores are closed, so the ex-husband and wife go to the dry cleaners to sort out the unclaimed clothes. Sophie finds a beautiful green dress for the wedding.
Afterward, Kevin and Sophie shop for food and toiletries at a convenience store in We are Season 6, episode 14. They catch up and Sophie informs him that she is now a traveling nurse. They decide to continue the day together and travel to a vineyard, where Sophie comes clean and tells Kevin that she is divorced from her. He gives him her jacket and they walk up and down the vineyard, talking about her lives.
What exactly happened to Kevin the night before the wedding?
Kevin and Sophie return to the wedding venue in We are Season 6, episode 14. At night, Kevin makes s’mores with his kids while constantly looking at Sophie. They meet in the elevator and, without saying a word, head to Kevin’s room.
Kevin and Sophie begin to kiss and she takes off her shirt and bra. But when they fall on her bed, Kevin comments that her hair smells the same. Sophie freaks out and she puts her shirt back on, leaving her bra behind. She tells him that she should like the way her hair smells now. A confused Kevin asks for more information about what’s going on.
Sophie tells her childhood sweetheart that she and Grant used to have an inside joke where he would pretend to fast-forward when Kevin was on TV. And one night, Sophie realized that she couldn’t do it anymore because she “can never fast-forward through you.” However, she refuses to back down, and since they have so much history, Sophie walks out of her room.
Rejected, Kevin goes to the bar and orders a ginger ale. He sits down with Arielle, who tells him that he likes to watch people and write song lyrics about them. Arielle reads the flirty handwriting she wrote about Kevin on a napkin and hands it to him.
Kevin returns to his room. In the hallway, he runs into Nicky, who is collecting ice for him and Edie for reasons Kevin doesn’t want to hear. When Kevin recounts his romantic struggles, Nicky gives his nephew a metaphor about a game. He tells her that just when he didn’t think he had another chance, he did.
Cassidy shows up, and she and Kevin go to her room so he can help her unbutton her dress. She changes into her pajamas in her bathroom. Kevin tells her about Nicky’s metaphor, which seems to imply that Kevin and Cassidy should be together. Cassidy reminds her that she is not her person and vice versa. In an achingly sweet exchange on We are Season 6, episode 14, Kevin and Cassidy call each other his best friend.
Do Kevin and Sophie finally work things out in ‘This Is Us’ season 6 episode 14?
Kevin wakes up alone the morning of the wedding in We are Season 6, episode 14. A montage of some of the day’s events appears, and we finally catch up with Randall asking Kevin about the night before. Kevin informs his brother that Sophie is no longer married. Beth listens and says, “I knew it! This opens the case wide open. I have to go find Madison. Kevin expresses that he doesn’t want to hurt Sophie again.
In a very convoluted way, Randall gives Kevin one of his classic speeches. He mentions how the Buffalo Bills lost the Super Bowl four years in a row. However, thousands thought the Bills won because some merchandise went to nations in need. Somehow coming full circle, Randall says, “The world is fucking crazy, man. Has no sense. But you and Sophie together, now that makes more sense than most things. You’re not going to screw it up this time. I know.”
Elsewhere, Sophie and Rebecca have a heart-to-heart after Rebecca’s song. Rebecca, who still believes they are married and in their 20s, tells Sophie, “The timing is not right now. He is not ready for you. He will be, but it will take a while. And I don’t know if you can wait for that, I mean, personally, I don’t know if he could. But when the time is right, it will be great.”
Kevin goes to Sophie at the reception, but she tells him that it’s her turn to give a speech. She says:
“I have spent years of my life praying that you would grow up. But now, here you are, 20 years later, and you’re finally the man I always knew you could possibly be. At first, I honestly didn’t think so, that we could finally be in the right place at the right time. And that I would finally be the best version of myself. But I am. And you. And I freaked out last night because I don’t want us to fall back into the old versions of ourselves. You know? I need you to love me for the woman I am now, not for the woman she was. Because you are not the man you were. And I want to fall in love with the man you’ve become.
Kevin then pulls out of his wallet the Valentine he created for Sophie when she was a new student in his class. He tells her, “I’ve always carried you with me, Soph.” They kiss as the rest of the Pearsons clap and cheer for them at the end of the We are Season 6 Episode 14.
by IMDb, We are Season 6 Episode 15, “Miguel,” airs Tuesday, May 3 at 9 pm ET on NBC.
