The Episode | “Operation Showtime” (Feb. 7, 2018)

The Performance | Kitsch didn’t have to pick up a Texas accent to play David Koresh; he had already had that covered from his years as Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights. But he did have to find a tenderness and humanity in a man infamously known as a dangerous cult leader, and Kitsch has responded with maybe his finest performance yet — especially in this week’s nail-bitingly intense installment.

Sporting a Lone Star mullet and dorky gold-rimmed glasses, Kitsch plays Koresh as a charismatic man of devout faith,

Gerald McRaney returns to ‘This Is Us’ and makes us cry all over again: Did he just win Emmy #2?
After winning an Emmy last year for playing the inspirational Dr. Nathan Katowski on “This is Us,” guest star Gerald McRaney made his triumphant return to the NBC family drama in Tuesday’s episode, titled “The Car.” McRaney must have squirted lemon juice in our eyes because we were all crying by the end of his five-minute appearance. Will McRaney go on to win a second Emmy Award for this role?

Though Dr. K’s appearance was brief, the emotional impact of the scene should help McRaney stick in Emmy voters’ minds. Shortly after the death of Milo Ventimiglia‘s Jack, Dr. K bumps into Mandy Moore‘s Rebecca at the cemetery. As she wonders whether she’ll be able to continue running the family without her loving husband, Dr. K gives Rebecca her own “lemons” speech, a wink to the pilot episode in which he consoled a heartbroken Jack after he lost a child.

He hinted at the idea even further when he sat down with Elle to read sad tweets about the show. After a fan asked if we'll ever get to see what would have happened if Jack had never died, Ventimiglia slyly raised his eyebrows and said, "Hmm." That isn't exactly a no, is it? It certainly wouldn't be the first time the show has pulled a move like this. During the "Number Three" episode,

After a tough love pep talk of sorts from Dr. K (Gerald McRaney) at the memorial service, Rebecca (Mandy Moore) pushed back her own sadness and grief to put her family first in “The Car.” She reassured a teenage Kate (Hannah Zeile) that it wasn’t her fault Jack went back in the house and promised teenage Kevin (Logan Shroyer) and Randall (Niles Fitch) that they didn’t have to be the men of the house. She took her kids to the tree Jack told her would make everything Ok and scattered some of his ashes with them there. She even convinced them to go to a Bruce Springsteen concert — with tickets Jack had
