The promo clip for the upcoming episode, Saturday in the Park, hints at the moment when everything falls apart for Kate and Toby. It will center around Jack going missing as Kate and Toby run around to find him.

The Pearson family will gather at Kate and Toby's house for a barbecue to celebrate Rebecca and Miguel's anniversary. As seen in the flashforward of the season's third episode with Jack and Lucy, this is the day the 'big green egg smoker' accident takes place, leading to Kate and Toby ending their marriage.

The decision is not a 'heat of the moment' kind but a build-up of how Kate and Toby have grown apart. While Kate is thriving as a music teacher in LA, Toby is riding the horse of success at his new job in San Francisco. This very distance is what added to the growing distance between them, not just physically but emotionally too, which often leads to fights between the couple.

In the clip for This Is Us Season 6 Episode 11, Rebecca is seen asking baby Jack about Kate and Toby, learning that the two have been fighting a lot. The preview then moves to Kate crying and telling Randall, "Every day I wake up, and I think, today’s the day that Toby and I aren’t going to fight."

Catch This Is Us Season 6 Episode 11 on April 5 on NBC, Hulu, Peacock and Hotstar.
