This is Us Season 5 Episode 6 Recap
Beth and Randall reach Hai’s house and the man informs them that the place had originally belonged to Laurel. Hai then proceeds by telling them the story. Laurel belonged to one of the most distinguished families in New Orleans. When her brother died, Lauren became close to her Aunt Mae, and this is when she met Hai – a Vietnamese refugee who had come to Louisiana with his parents after the war. The two eventually fell in love but when her parents would not approve of the marriage, she left her home for Pittsburgh.
Now, when Randall was born, Laurel was arrested for drug possession and sentenced to five years in prison. Hai explains: “She said there wasn’t a single night that went by when she didn’t dream about you. I think she was punishing herself. She felt she forfeited the right to be a mother.” Laurel went back to New Orleans and met Hai again. Eventually, she succumbed to cancer with Hai by her side. The next day, we meet a lighter, fresher Randall who seems relieved that he now knows his birth story.
