This is us is about family. Is about peoples virtues and flaws. But also is very recurrent the addiction theme.
Confirmed ones :
Addiction for drink /alchool Jack
Addiction for food Kate
Addiction for perfection Randall
Addiciton for drugs William
Addiction for attention Kevin
Kevin´s life choices are always based in getting attention because when he was a kid and a teen he felt ignored by his parents and felt randall stole the parents attention - he became a model, than a actor, in school he was popular and a Jock, he cheated on Sophie. When he appears in Randalls hes always trying to be the central piece always talking a lot and moving around like it is his own house. This is all based in seeking attention.
Addicton (fear of being alone) to have company/someone
I think Rebecca have fear of being alone because she at first didnt want kids and marriage life, but stayed with Jack knowing he wanted this kind of life, she married Miguel after Jacks death, she saw how alone and miserable her mother was because the dad didnt pay attention to her and her mother , she wanted fame and being a singer, fame is like a way of not being alone because everyone wants to be with you when you are famous and finaly she was scared to death of loosing randall.

Okay, so, now that Dakota and Cavendish are friends with Milo, the whole “Is he a Secret Agent?” thing they had going with him is vurtually gone right?
Well what if instead it was passed onto Savannah and Brick? Their plotline was never wrapped up in “Missing Milo” and after their adventure they definatly (probably) think somethings up. Not to mention that unlike Vinnie, neither of them seem to be willing to hear someone else out when they have their minds set on a mission. Also, unlike our favorite pistachio protectors, they have pull at the agency. They could get Block to do something about Milo.
Imagine Vinnie and Balthazar having to choose between the agency and Milo. Or better yet, Imagine having the gang have to travel in time to rescue him from Savannah and Brick. That would be really cool.
