Randall is running for a Senate seat on ‘This Is Us’

It’s us Episode 10 of Season 6 was the Randall-centric hour of the Big Three trilogy, and it mostly focused on a road trip between Randall and Rebecca. The two set out to find Deja in Boston, where she had fled after a fight with her father. But along the way, Randall and Rebecca had some heart-to-heart moments. And he shared exciting news with his mother.

One of the senators from Pennsylvania was retiring and he wanted Randall shortlisted to take his seat. Rebecca expressed her pride and enthusiasm for her son, but he let her know that he wasn’t sure if he should run, given Rebecca’s declining health.

Rebecca then encouraged Randall to start a campaign telling him why she chose Kate as his executor. Randall had dropped everything to help her after Jack’s death, and she couldn’t get him to do it again. Raised by his mother’s words, Randall told Rebecca he would win if he ran for the Senate seat. And given the five-year flash-forward from the It’s us Season 5 finale, Randall is correct in his assumption.
