    I do think Jack's death has to do with alcohol. A little too much emphasis on that when he was at the pub.
    Same here. I loved Kevin from the start, but now I love him even more.

I loved that Kevin ran to his brother, that gave me goosebumps when he hugged Randall.

    The one thing that bugs me ( only one ) Miguel playing older Miguel, has way too much make up on. It bothers me every time I see him present day.All that grey on his hair..he needs less.

    I look forward to seeing Randall and William next week, I don't think William has much time left.
    LOL! I commented on that exact same thing to my husband! It looks so fake & overdone, meanwhile, all it looks they did with Mandy Moore is put glasses on & gave her a bob with bangs. They need to figure out a balance with aging those two characters!

    They did give her some wrinkles, but in no way is she nearly as heavily made up as Miguel. Besides being anxious to find out why Jack died, I am almost as equally impatient to know how Rebecaa winds up marrying Miguel, and it seems within a couple of years of Jack's death. I wonder if Jack had made some sort of "deal" ... either in conversation at some point, or in the form of a deathbed promise ... that Miguel would take care of Rebecca after his death, even marry her.

    Re: This Is Us

    I LOVE this show. Best on network TV, in ages! The basic storyline is intriguing. The complex character development, although a bit slow, is outstanding...and I get why it's been slow. The actors are doing a fantastic job with the material they've been given and they ALL truly seem to know the characters they're playing within the story they're telling.

    Unlike some of you... I don't want to know how Jack died. He's my favorite character (I appreciate them all, but...) and I hate to face the fact that he dies somewhere along the way. I don't want to experience an episode without him. Thus, the reason my head is way way down in the sand!!

    LOVED how Kevin ran to his brother's side. Miguel, who I wasn't at all fond of until this episode, gave Kevin some sage advice about his similarities to Jack. Kevin embraced that information and FINALLY showed some outward signs of compassion to Randall. Very cool!

    Does anybody know how many episodes in advance the cast knows about the upcoming story?

    We know that he dies, so there's no escaping that, and I'm pretty sure we'll continue to see him after the cause of death is revealed, just as we are seeing him now, in flashback.

    I don't know how far in advance the cast knows about upcoming stories, but several of the actors have warned it will be a bumpy ride to the end of the season, so they know at least that far.

    I'm not really worrying about how Jack dies either. We know it happens. It's not that I'm denial it's just we already know it happens so I'm not really worried about the hows and whys of it.

    I'm not karna, but I saw it. She mostly talked about how she got started in the business, when she auditioned for and got the role, but nothing really about what is ahead in terms of story lines. Sorry, no big reveals.
