Susan Kelechi Watson who plays Beth on This Is Us spoke with TV Line about the big news. "We have a really great new writer Eboni Freeman, [who is] the main writer on it, and some of it is her story, very personal to her. They found a way to create this really beautiful backstory, and a beginning of a resolution of Beth starting to get back on her footing again. And then we have some amazing surprises in it. It’s going to be a really powerful episode.” Exciting news for such a great show. This Is Us returns January 15th on NBC.
