‘This Is Us’ Season 6 Episode 12

The season of This Is Us is coming to a close, and with it, the marriage of Toby (Chris Sullivan) and Kate (Chrissy Metz) in “Katoby.”

The most recent Season 6 episode follows the pair across the years, from the present to the future, when their son Jack (Blake Stadnik) is an accomplished musician.

One of the most essential things to remember is that, although some fans may be disappointed to see Kate and Toby’s marriage end, this is not the end of their tale. Beware of spoilers ahead as we break down the milestone episode (the show’s 100th!) and all of its significant aspects.

‘This Is Us Season 6 Episode 12 Recap: Kate and Toby’s Divorce

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 Episode 12

Following little Jack’s (Johnny Kincaid) mishap from last week’s episode, This Is Us Season 6 Episode 12 leaps straight into the Kate and Toby turmoil. Kate wants them to go to couple’s counseling, and Toby is ready to take a significant step back in his career by taking the position in LA. It’ll take whatever it takes.

Toby and Kate try to hide their problems from their therapist at first, applauding one other’s accomplishments while detailing their challenges. However, suppressing their actual sentiments just breeds contempt.

Kate and Toby are still having the same fight six months into their counseling. Toby then makes a snide remark regarding Kate’s teaching salary during Nicky and Franny’s birthday party.

In her bedroom, she sobs and asks Kevin (Justin Hartley) when she will know whether or not it is time to divorce. Kevin consoles his twin, assuring her that she will be happy again and that she will know when the time is right.

Finally, 16 months into the couple’s treatment, the moment has arrived. According to their therapist’s advice, Kate and Toby will eat supper alone.

But one thing leads to another, and Kate and Toby wind up yelling at each other at the end of the night. They only come to a halt when little Jack pleads for assistance in order for his parents to stop fighting. They’ve realized it’s over now.

Kate and Toby begin the process of divorcing, as the two struggle to figure out their separate lives. Toby moves into a neighboring apartment, while Kate remains at home with the kids.

Then, as time passes, things improve dramatically. But, while Toby sees it as a sign that he’s destined to be with Kate, Kate sees it as a message that they’re better off apart. As a result, they proceed with the separation.

Toby & Kate Call It Quits

The episode’s present-day plot begins the morning after baby Jack’s park accident, and Toby informs Kate that he’ll accept the L.A. job he passed up earlier to preserve their family.

He also agrees to attend couples counseling, despite his opposition to the practice. As time passes, Kate and Toby get by, starting new jobs and going through the motions of living together while still attending therapy sessions.

Toby isn’t excited as he walks through the door, while Kate feeds the kids and hums a melody to Jack and Hailey. Kate is running late for one of their regular appointments at the therapist’s office, and Toby is waiting.

When she gets through the door, he’s furious, and she responds with a caustic remark when he tells her she could be on time if she wanted. He eventually leaves the meeting, claiming that if she can be late, he can go early.

Kevin (Justin Hartley), who has brought along a Trojan ad actress girlfriend, discovers Kate’s disoriented condition during a family reunion, revealing the stressful status of their marriage.

Just as she starts to say this, her phone rings, and it’s Toby, congratulating her on her marriage and telling her that he now sees the words she uttered the day they divorced.

It isn’t the end of their tale; it is still being written, even if they are no longer in a relationship.
