What happened with Randall in the ‘This Is Us’ midseason premiere?

The series started the premiere with several typical Randall (Brown) things. He flew across the country—from Philadelphia to Los Angeles—to be with his mother, Rebecca (Mandy Moore), at a doctor’s appointment.

There are a few adorable moments between Rebecca and Randall as a baby. In the present-day, Rebecca tells Randall about the time she spent with just him in the mornings before his brother and sister woke up. It all gives us a bit of a false sense of hope.

The last ten-seconds of ‘This Is Us’ are terrifying

Randall flies home to his family and greets his wife, Beth (Susan Kelechi-Watson). He pops back downstairs, presumably to check that the doors are locked or grab a glass of water. Then he sees an intruder with a knife in his hand. Cue the screaming from viewers at home.
