Tonight on NBC’s hit drama, This Is Us, don’t miss Justin Hartley’s directorial debut on the series.  The former soap star, who has become an even bigger household name since landing the pivotal role of Kevin Pearson, has become quite the talent behind-the-camera, too.   Justin had previously directed an episode of the series Smallville in which he was also part of the cast.

Hartley directs the episode entitled “A Hell of a Week: Part Three” which features Kate’s (Chrissy Metz) drama at its epicenter, and concludes the latest Big Three trilogy of recent installments of the show.

In an interview with The Wrap, Hartley said of the episode in which he helms that Kate’s teenage troubled relationship with Marc comes more to light and how it impacted her as an adult woman in her relationship with Toby citing: “As far as the teenage storyline goes, there’s a massive through-line between her relationship with Marc (Austin Abrams) and how she handles her life in the present day with Toby (Chris Sullivan).”  Justin added: “These people that come and go in our lives, the relationships that come and go, they leave lingering things with us and they shape us and they form these habits or these sort of personalities that we become and we evolve into throughout our life. And that shapes the decisions that we make. Also, the relationship that she has with Toby and the relationship that she has with Marc, the differences and similarities, and the danger that goes along with that. The pushing and the pulling, the togetherness and separation.”

The creator of This Is Us, Dan Fogelman tweeted on Tuesday: “So not only is @justinhartley a 6’4 hunk who is legit funny (didn’t know they made funny in his size)… turns out he’s also a hell of a director. What a bastard. You’ll see tonight.”

Meanwhile, Justin’s This Is Us co-star and on-screen sister, Chrissy Metz shared: Directed by our guy, @justinhartley and the last of our Big Three trilogy, tonight’s all new nbc This Is Us is really something special. Can’t wait to hear what you all think.”

Harley himself shared on social media:I had the honor of directing tonight’s episode. This crew is truly incredible. Can’t wait for you to see.”

In a preview of what to expect, Scott Clifton shared with Soap Opera Digest on their latest issue on newsstands now:  “This is where it all combusts.”

Liam had gone to Steffy’s talk to her about her growing relationship with Finn (Tanner Novlan) and to express his concerns, but he walks into a dire situation for Steffy and their daughter.

Clifton goes on to say on Liam’s state of mind: “He goes into a full panic to th point where he’s slapping her face to get her to snap out of it.”

When Steffy comes to, Scott shares: “She’s disoriented and reactive and defensive. She’s clearly loaded and Liam just asks her, ‘Are you still on pills?”

How does Steffy answer? What comes next? It all could be game-changer for not only Steffy’s relationship with Liam, but Liam’s with Hope (Annika Noelle) as well.

So, what have you thought of Steffy’s addiction to painkillers storyline arc thus far?  Should Liam mind his own business where Dr. Finnegan is concerned?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
