This Is Us Twist Leaves Fans Angry At Series Creator Dan Fogelman
This Is Us is back but the fans are not happy
This Is Us returned with a bang in 2020. The comeback episode Light and Shadows featured two spectacular guest appearances that took us all by surprise. The first episode from the Big Three Trilogy titled “A Hell of a Week: Part One” also gained praise from the audiences for tackling issues like destigmatizing talking about mental health. However, the second episode “A Hell of a Week: Part Two” has angered the fans who feel betrayed by series creator Dan Fogelman.
Part One left fans on a cliffhanger regarding the identity of the mystery women sleeping with Kevin. The woman was revealed to Kate Pearson’s best friend, Madison in the latest episode of This Is Us and here’s why fans are angry after the reveal.
Previously, the series creator denied any possibility of Madison and Kevin ending up together on This Is Us. He tweeted that Caitlin Thompson, the actress playing Madison, was his wife in real life and there was no possibility that she was ending up in bed with Justin Hartley.
Just FYI: Madison is my wife in real life @CaitwithaC

Fans stopped theorizing about the two of them and the hype around the ship faded away. Many fans took to social media to express their unhappiness with the decision.
I FEEL SO ANGRY AND BETRAYED. ESPECIALLY SINCE @Dan_Fogelman SAID HE WOULD NEVER HAVE MADISON WITH KEVIN. I WANT #Kophie BACK, NOT MADISON, NOT LIZZIE, NOT ANYONE ELSE. SOPHIE BELONGS WITH KEVIN. #ThisIsUs #Kophie pic.twitter.com/GtBajUgy5W

While the fans are definitely angry, they must keep in mind that it hasn’t been confirmed that Kevin and Madison are together. It is only an assumption at this point in time. We will have to wait and see in the next episode of This Is Us which will focus on Kate.
