Although the beginning of Season 5 of ‘This Is Us’ seemed to suggest that Kevin and Madison were heading for their happy ending, it seems that in the future there will be some barriers. In December 2020, speaking to TVLine, Hartley revealed that Kevin feels a lot of “anxiety” about his relationship with Madison, especially if things do not work out.
I think that uncertainty shows up in the fear of Kevin.
The apprehension that it will not work out,’ said Hartley. “I mean, what if they can’t coexist and be this cohesive unit that comes together and raises these kids, and he only sees them [on]the weekends? There are all these things. Probably those are the things that keep Kevin up at night.”
“In the last episode, the actor continued, “That’s what he said. He sits there and looks at the ceiling and worries.
“All this concern comes from fear, fear that it’s not going to work at all and that he’s trying to force something. I’ve said this before, “You just can’t force love. It doesn’t work at all.

The twins, however, complicate the relationship as Kevin wants to live up to his Jack picture (Milo Ventimiglia), which may lead to more issues.
“This belief that he needs to be what his father knew he should be has shackled him his entire life,” the actor said. “Because it’s been so short, Kevin doesn’t allow himself the breaks he would have to have. He’s not giving himself any breaks…. And then, in still more pain, he finds himself.
It’s that he puts a lot of stress and pressure on himself,”It’s that he puts a lot of stress and pressure on himself, and that can sometimes cause the balloon to pop, so to speak.”and that can sometimes, so to speak, cause the balloon to pop.

Well, the remarks from Hartley about Madison and Kevin shouldn’t come as a surprise to many fans of ‘This Is Us’. When NBC premiered the fifth season, series creator Dan Fogelman indicated that the pair wouldn’t get a simple love story.
Fogelman told Deadline in October 2020, “It’s not going to be this simple love story like some of our other love stories have been.” There’s passion and chemistry there.
But they still just don’t know each other. But it’s fair to say that they have a journey of ups and downs ahead of them.
Executive producer Elizabeth Berger explained what viewers should expect from Madison and Kevin in upcoming episodes in advance of This Is Us season 5 episode 5 on Jan. 5.
“They fell into this very serious relationship very quickly when she got pregnant and then was thrown into a life together through quarantine,” Berger told Entertainment Weekly. “So we’ll see how they navigate through their relationship and still work to figure out how it all works and how they fit together and what the future looks like for the two of them.”
