Everyone in America owes Crock-Pot a long, sincere apology because it didn’t kill Jack Pearson on “This Is Us.” Jack killed Jack? His sentimental nature and kind heart killed him? Right? Right.
After a season and a half of speculation and one dramatic house fire, fans finally know what took their beloved TV father away from them all-too-soon– smoke inhalation and a heart attack.
We pick up with the Pearsons, as the fire is taking over their home. Jack wakes up first and wakes up Rebecca before ushering Randall and Kate out of their rooms into the master. He got them all to the ground by putting bedsheets around them and basically pushing them slowly off the roof. When they were all safely on the ground, Kate’s stupid dog barked and Jack went back in. But, he didn’t just go back in, he went back in for family photos, the dog and Kate’s dumb audition video. Jack was fine but needed to be seen by a doctor. At first, he’s fine and just needs to be monitored, so Rebecca decided to get a candy bar. But, she didn’t even get to finish the candy bar, because Jack died.
The future Pearsons are all watching the Super Bowl in their own slight off ways that make them feel connected to dear ol’ dad. Mostly, we learn that in 20 years, these people have never enjoyed Super Bowl Sunday and they probably never will.
