The first season of NBC’s hit series wrapped up with an episode that left us with more questions than answers. What will become of Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) after that explosive and very real fight? How did Jack die? At what point did he die? What will Randall (Sterling K. Brown) do now that he quit his job? Will he and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) really adopt a baby?
“We know at some point in this time period Jack passes away, but what state is Jack and Rebecca’s marriage in when that happens?” series creator Dan Fogelman told Entertainment Weekly earlier this month. “More than even how Jack dies, I would argue that that’s the biggest question looming over their story.”
The couple’s love story prompted many tears throughout the 18 episodes of Season 1. And based on what we know so far about Season 2, lots of emotional moments are on the way as the show is set to explore more of the characters’ personal histories.
To get ready, let’s get our “This Is Us” fix by by reliving some of the most tear-jerking Season 1 scenes in the video above ― complete with a sadness meter.
Warning: Make sure tissues are handy.
