While tonight's episode of This Is Us may be called "A Manny-Splendored Thing," it's not just about Kevin (Justin Hartley) and his return to The Manny

It also focuses on Kate (Chrissy Metz), who's finally doing the thing she's always wanted to do but has never been quite confident enough to do, all because of her perfect mother. In this new clip, exclusive to E! News, the kids are preparing for the school talent show. 

Kevin (Parker Bates) has an excellent(ish) Mr. T impression, Randall's (Lonnie Chavis) doing yo-yo tricks, and Kate (Mackenzie Hancsicsak) plans to sing. Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) praises her completely as Jack always does, and Rebecca (Mandy Moorealmost manages give her daughter the support she needs, except she can't help herself. 

"If you just hold out that last not a little bit longer though Bug, it'll be perfect," she says. "But really good. So good." 

Milo Ventimiglia, This Is Us


Kate and Rebecca's relationship comes to a head of sorts this week as the whole family comes together in L.A. to celebrate Kevin's George Clooney-on-E.R.-esque return to his cheesy sitcom, amidst his reunion with Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth's (Susan Kelechi Watson) quest to adopt. 

Plus, expect many glimpses into Rebecca and Kate's past, and maybe not as much crying as usual, but enough precious moments to make you feel like your heart just got a big hug by the end of the night. 

This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
