The moment This Is Us fans have been waiting for is near, and we honestly don't think we're ready for it. Last Tuesday, we learned just exactly how the fire started in the Pearson home, and after the Super Bowl on Sunday, we will finally know, once and for all, how Jack dies. While the cast has certainly been pulling our heartstrings these past few weeks with little clues about what's to come, Mandy Moore's latest interview with Us Weekly has officially sent us over the edge.
"I don't know if people are going to be ready for the next episode," she told the publication about the upcoming episode. "I'm not. I haven't seen it yet. I mean, I filmed it and it was really hard on every level. I think it's . . . I think it's gonna be a good soul-crusher." What?! Hasn't this show made us cry enough? While it's obvious we will need to stock up on Kleenex for this episode, there is one bright side: all our questions will be answered.
"Everything will be answered," Moore added. "We're leaving nothing on the table. Everyone will know everything. I'm excited about that, because I feel like it'll sort of relieve a little bit of pressure. People will know, and then we'll be able to get back to telling the story of this family, and I think it'll make things that much more bittersweet moving forward too." If you need us, we'll just be huddled up in a corner trying to emotionally prepare ourselves.
