“This Is Us” always gives us the twists and turns we didn’t want, but can’t look away from. Now Chrissy Metz and Chris Sullivan are opening up on the troubles that could be ahead for their characters, Kate and Toby.
The married couple are sitting pretty in season 4 with a newborn baby and a generally happy life. But “This Is Us” fans know that the calm can only last so long. In an interview with People, Metz admits Toby could be holding onto something that puts a strain on his marriage.
“I don’t think fans will necessarily expect the secrets that Toby was keeping and how they’ll affect the relationship and moving forward,” she says.
Metz adds, “Trust really is intimacy. The physical stuff is great and wonderful, but real intimacy is trust and so there’s a bit of trust that’s broken in him keeping this weight loss and working out a secret. We’ll see how that evolves and unfolds with them.”
And now that Toby has a son of his own, it seems his priorities have shifted a little from previous seasons. “As of right now, it seems like Toby’s figured out where his priorities are, and his priorities are staying alive as long as possible for his son," Sullivan says.
Fans are on the edges of their seats, waiting to learn the fate of Kate and Toby, one of the show’s favorite couples.
