This is Us has always favored the flashbacks and present-day format, and the mid-season premiere was no different. They kicked off with a flash forward from the mid-season finale, and then went back to fill in the missing links. Between election results giving you flashbacks of not-so-nice times, and feel good fuzzy between couples in love, This Is Us packed a punch with the start of the second half of season 3.
Another season of tears has begun as This Is Us kicks off the story of how Rebecca and Jack — aka the OTP of OTPs — met. It’s the love story that brought about the Big Three and every tear and laugh that has come from the last two seasons. Regardless of how meant to be they are, there is no doubt that this story will be a bumpy ride.
In the This Is Us season 2 finale, the wedding we’ve all been waiting for has arrived, and it was perfect — or as close to perfect as weddings can get. Kate and Toby walked down the aisle with hopes of a bright and sunny future. Will they get it?
Following an insane game, leading to an Eagles win — Fly Eagles Fly! — the moment we’ve waited for since This Is Us season one was finally here. How did Jack die? They had been dropping hints, the fire alarm, the crockpot, the crazy fire that was to burn down the house…Was the answer satisfying enough, or was it a little too predictable?
Jack Pearson’s presence on This Is Us has been vital from the get-go. He’s easily the husband/father of the year and a legend of sorts. The Pearson kids have lived with his memory for more than half their lives; and his death was a turning point for them, which has shaped who they are today.
The moment everyone has been waiting for is just around the corner. After the Superbowl — fitting seeing as how big the game is for the Pearsons — an all-new episode of This Is Us will air. The episode — the one where we will finally find out if all the clues were literal or subterfuge. How did Jack die? The question will finally be answered.
Until then, let’s discuss what might happen.
This Is Us kicked off its three-episode homage to the Big Three with the first born, Kevin Pearson. “Number One” explored how he grew up and became the man he is today.
The Pearson kids celebrate Halloween, as flashbacks surrounding Tessa’s birth give more insight into Randall and his temperament.
The latest episode of This Is Us left us scratching our heads. Between the flashbacks and present day events, the rapid shift of scenes, and the context, some things didn’t quite stick during the first watch.
The Big Three are back together as Kevin gets ready for his return to The Manny. Meanwhile, Kate and her mom finally have that conversation they should have years before and Randall and Beth come to a decision about the adoption.
Last fall’s IT show, This Is Us, is set to return later this month. The show that blew our minds is back for another season of gut wrenching family affairs that will leave you reaching for the tissue box.
