“This Is Us” Exclusive: Jack Gets Ready to Propose!
Things could get a little weird on This Is Us this week, even if it’s only for the viewers.
As you can see in the exclusive clip above, one of the storylines in “Both Things Can Be True” involves Miguel (Jon Huertas) helping Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) propose to Rebecca (Mandy Moore), the love of his life. It wasn’t awkward at the time, of course, but it’s strange to watch now when we know that after Jack’s eventual death, Miguel and Rebecca got married.
The clip shows Miguel reassuring Jack that his plan to recreate his and Rebecca’s first date is a great one, regardless of the fact that Rebecca’s dad refuses to call him back.
Rebecca and Miguel’s love story is one of the few that this show has yet to tell in its five seasons, other than a scene in which Miguel and Rebecca reconnected over Facebook. We haven’t yet seen how that relationship played out, but hopefully that’s where this is going.
After the season four finale, show creator Dan Fogelman told The Hollywood Reporter that season five would include “a big storyline” for Rebecca, taking place in both her present and past timelines, and that included her love story with Miguel.
Elsewhere in this week’s episode, Kevin (Justin Hartley) and Madison (Caitlin Thompson) are navigating some wedding planning challenges while Randall (Sterling K. Brown) starts group therapy. Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson), meanwhile, is figuring out how to deal with Tess (Eris Baker) and her new relationship, and Kate (Chrissy Metz) has a new job.
This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
