This Is Us season 5 episode 10 sneak peek: Conflict around Beth’s mom

This Is UsAre you ready for This Is Us season 5 episode 10 to finally air on NBC? We know it’s been quite a wait, but we are closing in on the big return tomorrow night!

Over the course of “I’ve Got This,” you will see several stories about multi-generational families, but the sneak peek below focuses entirely on Randall, Beth, their kids, and also Beth’s mother Carol, who is in town. While we know that Beth loves her mom and vice-versa, that doesn’t mean that she’s the easiest in the world to live with.

One of the issues that comes out of the sneak peek is that Beth’s mom is judgmental about just about everything, whether it be discipline or the quality of the food her daughter keeps in the house. She also does it in a very passive-aggressive way where the tension doesn’t rise to a boil right away — instead, it just simmers. You’re in a spot where you wait and wait and wait for things to get worse; eventually, they probably will and these two need to hash things out.

We wouldn’t say that this conflict is the most high-stakes one that we’ve seen in the This Is Us world, but at the same time, it may prove to be rather relatable for a lot of people out there. So many people have dealt with similar situations with their parents and in-laws, and we’re sure the writers thought a lot about some of the most realistic ways to give this story life. Let’s hope for a resolution, though — if nothing else, this preview has a pretty-funny reference to NCIS thrown in.
