Thanksgiving is all about getting together with family and friends to enjoy a big turkey feast, and while bringing people together to celebrate can be a joyous occasion, it can also bring conflict and some awkward interactions (we’ve all been there). This brings us to next Tuesdays big Thanksgiving episode of This Is Us where family will come together, but there will certainly be some moments that will make the Pearson family a bit uncomfortable.

Who better to map out some of what’s coming up in this episode then the actor behind Nicky Pearson, Griffin Dunne? While speaking to TVLine he offered up a few teases that have definitely peeked our interest:
“It’s messy in all sorts of different ways with the different family members … With very big families, there are some who get along with others or who have issues with others. There’s a lot of splitting off into different factions.”
So where is Nicky going to lie within all of this? That’s clearly one of the biggest points of interest that we’ve got at the moment, given that he’s seemingly on the road to a recovery and a better person than he once was. We’re not sure that he’s fully out of the woods yet, especially since there is going to be some distrust that he still has to deal with. Meanwhile, he will carry with him some more distrust of his own.
In the end, just remember that This Is Us has already shown us what the future will hold, and that Nicky is still alive there. Not only that, but it feeels as though he and Rebecca are going to form some sort of closer bond along the way. Maybe this is one of those episodes where we’ll start to see things get a larger shape.
