A Clever 'This Is Us' Fan Noticed a Tiny Detail About Kevin’s House That Explains His Future

From Good Housekeeping

  • This Is Us season 4 episode 14 aired Tuesday night.
  • The new episode showed an older Kevin at the home he had built to honor his late father Jack's wish.
  • One Reddit commenter recalled spotting Oscar statuettes in Kevin's home, hinting that the Pearson brother will be extremely successful in the future.

There's always a lot going on in This Is Us, which is why we depend on eagle-eyed viewers out there to shout out things we might've missed. Last night for instance, one This Is Us Redditor called attention to a key feature about Kevin's house that makes the latest season 4 episode infinitely sweeter.

The last few minutes of episode 14 showed a future George Clooney-esque Kevin getting out of the car and walking into his home. Even though we had previously seen a glimpse of Kevin's future house in the season 3 finale, what we didn't know until last night is that the house is built on the same property as the Pearson family cabin. It was also revealed on Tuesday that Kevin fulfilled his father Jack's dream, which was to build a bigger home for Rebecca to grow old in.

Knowing all of this is already emotional enough. But moreover, one Redditor points out that it's likely that Kevin, too, will have his dreams come true in the future.

"Some have said during the flash forward scene last season there are Oscars around the house ... so I bet Kevin's career takes off in his 40s," the Redditor commented in a thread about last night's episode.

To understand the This Is Us viewer's comment, we have to once again go back to the season 3 finale. In it, we see an older Randall, Beth, Toby, and more all gathering in Kevin's home to visit an ailing and bedridden Rebecca. In a dramatic sequence, Randall walks through the hallways of the home to get to Rebecca's room — that's when a bookshelf appears, boasting on it what looks like a few golden Oscar statuettes. Take a look at the screenshot below for reference:

Of course, we don't know for sure that they're Oscars — they could just be golden decorations. But knowing how the This Is Us writers like to plant clues everywhere, we wouldn't be surprised if a few Academy Awards is what they have in mind for Kevin's career.

Then again ... what if the awards belong to Kevin's future wife? If so, maybe this is a sign that Kevin's ex-girlfriend Zoe (who worked as a documentarian) will come back into his life. After all, executive producer Elizabeth Berger did tell TVLine.com after season 3 that "it’s safe to say you will be seeing her again."

Hmm, time to go search Reddit for more clues about future Kevin!
