THIS IS US Season Two Premiere Sets Series High With Major Revelation On Jack’s Death!

This Is Us which stars former Y&R star Justin Hartley, along with Emmy winner, Sterling K. Brown, Milo Ventimiglia, Chrissy Metz, and Mandy Moore scored a series high in the ratings during its season two premiere.

In the overnight ratings, according to TV Line, the opener “drew 12.6 million total viewers and a 3.8 demo rating, marking the show’s second-largest audience ever (trailing only its freshman finale, which did 12.8 mil) while setting a new demo high (besting the same finale’s 3.4).”

As had been promised by This Is Us creator, Dan Fogelman, the 2nd season premiere would hold key info on just how Jack Pearson died, something that has been the shows signature mystery, since the premise jumps from the “Big Three” (Hartley, Metz, and Brown) in real-time, while we watch their parents relationship play out in the past.

In story, Rebecca (Moore) and Jack (Ventimigilia) begin to try to reconcile their relationship, where Jack admits he has had a serious drinking problem that he has kept hidden from his wife and kids. She tells him to come home with her and to get in the car.

Next, we see a distraught Rebecca driving solo with Jack’s belongings in plastic bags, as we cut to young Kate and young Randall learning the news that their father has died.  Meanwhile, young Kevin is making out with Sophie, and does not know yet. Behind the wheel of her car, Rebecca lets out a gut-wrenching cry, as she pulls up to what looks to be the scorched and burned-down Pearson home.  We fade to black.

The writing on this show is spectacular. The ending was gut wrenching. This cast continues to amaze me. Kudos to Mandy Moore, Milo and Sterling.

I absolutely love this show! It is the one show that I watch religiously (along with “Scandal”). It just pulls at your heartstrings, and I think everyone can relate to at least one character or storyline that is depicted. So much heart is poured into each episode. It’s a great show to watch and just purge out your feelings (in tears). It’s beautifully written and portrayed.

Good acting, good stories and good music, how could you go wrong. Yeah, I was kind of disappointed in season ones finale but season twos premiere was great! They weave timelines seamlessly like a Duke and Anna Tango! The last few minutes were phenomenal. I would assume Jack dies in a fire. My only question is was it faulty wiring or could it have been one of the kids fault, particularly Kate’s?

Agreed, it’s a great show. Your Timeline and Duke and Anna Tango analogy is accurate–and both are lovable.

As usual, this show had me in tears by the end. I’ve missed the Pearsons. I heard we see the darker side of Jack this season, I hope they tread lightly here because we all need a hero to believe in.

This is Us is a great primetime soap..
The characters are magnetic .. The stories strong .
It is drama and humor. and most of all it is real. it is life.

The daytime soaps could should take a clue from This is Us …

The writing and acting on this show are phenomenal! Based on the clues in the final minutes of this episode, I believe Jack died by going into (or back into) the fire to save Kate’s dog. That would explain why she feels responsible for his death.

Amazing show. Superlative writing, characterizations, relationships. The weaving the past into the future is brilliantly done, never interfering with continuity.

Broke my heart from the beginning to watch Jack knowing he’s been dead for a long time…he’s such a poignant character.

At first it looked to me that there had been a car accident…and Rebecca, after convincing Jack to come home with her, had been driving. I thought how gut-wrenching and ironic as life can be. She, trying to save him and stand by him getting into an accident thereby being the cause for his death. So I was surprised to see the house decimated at the end. I don’t remember Jack smoking…thought perhaps he had falled asleep drunk with a cigarette. Either way, seems he caused the fire, or was too drunk to get out in time.

Devastating. So well done as it rips your heart out.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.
