This Is Us season 3 episode 11 will arrive in the new year, and based on the latest photo one thing is clear: Randall still thinks he can win the election.

The photo above shows Sterling K. Brown’s character still in process of trying to do the best that he can in order to win Saul Brown’s seat, even though it doesn’t actually seem that there is a path forward in doing so. He doesn’t have enough support from the constituents and, beyond that, he doesn’t even have the support of his own wife. He and Beth are in one of the roughest patches of their entire marriage, mostly because he broke a promise to her regarding how long he wanted to be around in the campaign. He’s needed at home but still, he’s not giving up on this dream.
Do we think that Randall is actually going to win the seat? Barring some sort of surprise, unforeseen circumstance, it seems super-unlikely. Yet, at the same time you can’t rule out something more for him down the line. This Is Us is not the sort of show where things come easy to some of the characters. With that in mind, our expectations going into the second part of the season are that we’re going to be seeing Randall do his part in order to win this election, but even with failure could come an opportunity down the road. There could be another election that he is better poised to win, one where the constituents aren’t so locked-in on a specific candidate and his message could spread further. We actually think it would benefit him to run for Congress or something a little bit closer to where he actually is. It would give him so much more stable of a home life.
Maybe within this episode, there will some more information on what’s going to happen. The title for the hour is “The Last Seven Weeks” and that could be referring to a couple of different things — what’s happening with the election or, in turn, what’s happening with Kate’s pregnancy. It could be one of those stories that intentionally has a double meaning and the writers are going to roll with that.
