Fun fact before we start, I would like you all to know that I took a Buzzfeed “which Pearson girl are you?” quiz and I got Rebecca, which is very flattering but also I wish I had that effortless boho style

Will Randall and Beth adopt a child? How did Jack die? Does Kevin find a way to screw up his second chance with Sophie? Is Kate next the American Idol? What do we really know about this Miguel fellow? Did Miguel kill Jack so he could Rebecca all to himself?

No, that sounds crazy. Or does it? Yes, there are so many things to ponder but you’re not the only one with question marks rotating over your head. EW asked the stars of This Is Us to tell us the one burning question they most hope the show will answer this season.

Is anyone else still obsessed with that cape Mandy Moore wore at the Golden Globes? She’s going to look amazing tonight obviously, but how can she top that?

I’ve been stalking MM’s Instagram and I’m obsessed

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise; permed bangs are always a good idea. #fbf #firstheadshot

Notorious hat wearer Chris Sullivan is here on the red carpet!

What Chris Sullivan (Toby) tells fans when they ask him how Jack dies: “I tell them the truth. I tell them that Miguel murdered him.” 😳

A very pregnant Alexandra Breckenridge is GLOWING

Young Kevin is ADORABLE and pulling off that maroon suit jacket

Dana Schwartz Triplet Expert

Did we know that Milo is a necklace/bracelet guy IRL? I mean, I assumed, but it’s unfortunate to have that confirmed.

Cristina Everett Deputy Editor

“Do you like your costar Sterling K. Brown?”

Faithe Herman (Annie): “Yes. He’s an amazing TV dad. He’s funny. He helps us with our lines. He’s really nice.”

Dana Schwartz Triplet Expert

Milo is holding a trucker hat which feels like an important detail here.

Chancellor Agard Jack Isn't Dead Truther

GET READY!

“We will learn something very large that relates to Jack’s death tonight,” said Milo on the red carpet

Cristina Everett Deputy Editor

Milo says fans approach him on the street and ask him how his character dies all the time

Cristina Everett Deputy Editor

On if Niles Fitch (young Randall) spends time with costar Sterling K. Brown: “I was, in a way, scared. Because I’ve been taping for 7-8 months. It was very surreal. We have a lot in common. Both of our fathers passed away when we were younger. It’s not something you really talk about but it’s something [that connects us].”

Chancellor Agard Jack Isn't Dead Truther

Chrissy Metz on Kate’s journey in season 2: “She’s really coming into own because she’s pursuing her heart’s desires.”

David Canfield TV Bingewatcher

Chrissy Metz confirms there’s more singing for Kate this season, and the actress is very happy about it: “I’d rather sing than speak — it’s a little obnoxious.”

Dana Schwartz Triplet Expert

Aw! It’s the 3 Kates!

here is a tweet from me:

Dana Schwartz Triplet Expert

I would LOOOOOVE to see Beth do karaoke.

Chancellor Agard Jack Isn't Dead Truther

One of Susan Kelechi Watson’s favorite scenes from last season was when Beth and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) thought they were pregnant. “There was just an intimacy there.”

Dana Schwartz Triplet Expert

Okay, fan theory: what if Jack has been dead the whole time and he’s a ghost.

Dana Schwartz Triplet Expert

Mandy says her look is…. “’70s vintage glamour”

Whatever you say, gorgeous!

David Canfield TV Bingewatcher

Mandy Moore, getting real: “How does Jack die? Isn’t that a question we all get asked?”
