It’s no secret that the cause of Jack’s death is pretty much constantly on every viewer’s minds when watching This Is Us. However, tonight’s episode of NBC’s hit, Emmy Award-winning family drama features a lot less Jack and a lot more mother-daughter drama between Kate and her mother Rebecca — and according to our Bingeworthy hosts, that’s a good thing.
“It was just too much,” says co-host Jessica Shaw on how the show alludes to Jack’s death. “I know he’s dead. That’s enough for me. I don’t need the entire show to be about parsing clues about his death.” The second episode, however, is what makes the show truly great.
“So many shows don’t seem like real life,” adds co-host Touré, “And this one gets much closer to real life and the real complexity of emotion that we all go through.”
Check out the entire clip above. This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
