"This Is Us" Season Finale

'This Is Us' season finale pulls off the show's cruelest twist yet 'This Is Us' finale didn't tell us how Jack died, but it did show us how he met Rebecca

Mandy Moore has words of advice to disappointed This Is Us fans following Tuesday's season finale.

Whether it's the recent death of William Hill, the heart attack Toby suffered, the anxiety attack that Randall had to endure, Kate's struggle and guilt that her father's death is her fault, Kevin's NY dreams of acting and his true love, Jack's drinking issues, Rebecca's hidden lie, or Beth's struggle to maintain balance in the family, pick your poison and you'll be in tears.

"I would say we keep up the kind of pace you had for the "Memphis" episode".

Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin, shares that sentiment. Stay tuned, cause it's all leading somewhere and we're just getting started.

In "Moonshadow" we see an earlier, shady side of Jack post Vietnam. She's explaining how great her budding singing career. His father (who looks a lot like Michael Lohan, no?) thinks he's a failure and shames him for not having a "real job". "We want to find a balance", said Berger.

It's also revealed that a younger Jack was gambling and playing cards, but left after winning the first hand which resulted in him being beaten up. He's excited, but then gets beat up in the alley. "I love that Jack thinks about the smaller moments as well as cares deeply about providing for his family and taking care of his family and being supportive". He plans on robbing the card guy's bar. Like the parents on the show - Jack and Rebecca - my husband and I have two biological children and one child through adoption. The date is not with Jack.

What is Jack and Rebecca's future? "Moonshadow" is the song she was singing. Viewers are going to have to find out at some point, and some no doubt fell for the ruse that he'd die in a auto accident on the way to Rebecca's gig (last week). That made him pretty liquored up when he finally found Ben (Sam Trammell) and discovered the musician had "crossed the line" with Rebecca.

When the Season 1 finale gave everyone exactly what they wanted - all Jack, all the time, and no major surprises other than Randall adopting a baby - people should have been dancing in the streets, unified by the power of a cultural touchstone delivering the goods right before wrapping up a beloved first year.

As she called home to tell her husband that she missed him, Jack was already inside at the bar. He goes backstage and punches Ben, drunk. His inevitable death - which fans previously learned happens in that 1990s era - was further underlined in a present-day scene in which Kate blames herself for her father's passing.

They have a full out fight. "We love each other", he reminded her. Such a realistic marriage fight. "But I sure do like that snow globe".

While he gave this powerful speech, we got brief snippets with "The Big Three", and then that was it. "That's what you and I are going to be doing, marriage counseling over the break". Hearts and kisses, Jack! Meanwhile Kevin had to yet again say goodbye to Sophie as he took off for his L.A. audition for a Ron Howard movie. It did not reveal how he died just yet. "None of us know when we'll meet our ends". It reminded me, oddly, of watching the classic "One Minute" episode of Breaking Bad, where the audience had been primed to expect the Cousins to attempt to kill Hank at any moment, only a version where the assassination attempt never materialized.
