This is Us season 5 episode 7: Does Kevin die?

  • No, there is reason to believe that Kevin doesn’t die. Previous episodes have shown us that he is alive in the future.

The final scene of the previous episode shows a car crash and Carter Matt highlights that the episode 7 promo confirms that Kevin was in a car accident, with the car being on fire.

In the clip [see below], his ID is seen on the floor.

Glimpses of Kevin’s future arguably confirm that he survives the accident, but the concern then shifts to whether the ordeal will affect him seeing Madison give birth.

Essentially, Kevin has also reached a point in which the personal and professional aspects of his life have collided, arguably conveying a sense that he can no longer divide the two and must take a different approach.

A number of viewers have already taken to Twitter to offer their thoughts on kevin’s fate, with one writing: “Y’all can’t f with me I know Kevin doesn’t die.”
