JACK’S FATE IS REVEALED AS ‘THIS IS US’ RETURNS WITH EMOTIONAL SEASON 2 PREMIERE!

This Is Us made us cry all over again with Tuesday night’s Season 2 premiere. We find out how Jack died…we think.

We’ll get back to that…

First, we catch up with Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson), who are struggling with the decision to adopt. Randall is a man on a mission, to heal himself and his fractured beginnings by adopting a baby. His obsession puts a strain on their marriage as Beth feels her needs and desires are not being considered. Elsewhere, Kate(Chrissy Metz) continues to pursue her musical aspirations while Toby (Chris Sullivan) and Kevin (Justin Hartley) battle over who should be there for her.

Back to Jack…

Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) is in the battle of his life, admitting to a drinking problem he thinks he can lick on his own. Even though he pushes her away, Rebecca (Mandy Moore) is determined to stitch their marriage back together again. But a few months later, as the episode ends, Rebecca drives up to the Pearson’s house which is burned to the skeleton. She lets out a curdling scream. Kate (Hannah Zeile) and Randall (Niles Fitch) grieve, with Kate having to break the news to her twin (Logan Shroyer).

Did Jack meet his end in the fire? We are left with more questions than answers to ponder as the season races of to an intense start, with performances as poignant as ever from a stellar cast of characters.
