At the end of tonight’s This Is Us season 4 episode, we saw a moment that suggested something ominous underneath the surface. We knew that Kate was developing a relationship with Mark from the record store, but it wasn’t clear what sort of relationship that would be.
Now, we’ve got a suggestion that Kate may have been abused or hurt in some way by him in the past. Kevin made it clear that he was worried about Mark, saying that he felt that he was a little bit too old. There was just something that was fundamentally off about him, whether it be his personality or the way in which he would just forget about what anyone thought around him. He was impulsive, reckless, and we don’t have a hard time drawing some lines as to where all of this could go.

So how afraid should we be about what’s going to be coming up next for Kate in that timeline? Speaking in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Isaac Aptaker had the following to say on the subject:
Fans should have a healthy amount of concern. I mean, there’s something ominous looming there, the way that Rebecca and Kate are speaking about that relationship in present day. And although he seems like a sweet guy now, it certainly seems like that did not end well for Kate.
It does feel comforting to know that Kate does end up with someone she cares about in Toby, but at the same time, that doesn’t erase what happened. This is the sort of thing that does stick with you and those memories can come rushing back at almost any time. That is, after all, what we saw at the end of tonight’s episode.
