There was hearth and there was darkness, and now… let there be gentle once more?
With the decision of Jack’s demise thriller and the funeral service for Milo Ventimiglia’s Pearson patriarch, This Is Us has pushed viewers — and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) — by a double whammy of tragedy and mourning. So it is smart, as sequence creator Dan Fogelman himself has mentioned, that followers “deserve a break” after that current trauma-o-rama.
The Feb. 27 episode of the NBC household drama, titled “Vegas, Baby,” brightens the temper, in accordance with Moore. “There’s some present-day fun with a bachelor/bachelorette party for Toby (Chris Sullivan) and Kate (Chrissy Metz),” she tells EW.
The previous story for Jack and Rebecca will deal with a marriage anniversary once they’ve been married for some time and the pains of parenthood are taking their toll. “We come to the point where we don’t necessarily want to go through all of the hoopla and maybe just have a quiet night in — and the kids have another idea together,” shares Moore. “It definitely is a lighter episode, and I think it will definitely be bittersweet, knowing what we’ve just gone through with these characters.”
Through flashbacks within the funeral episode, viewers have been capable of see how Jack’s story will proceed — and so they would possibly interface with him barely in another way than they did earlier than they’d witnessed his tragic finish. “I think moving forward now will be bittersweet for people to realize, ‘Oh goodness, he really was this superhero and father,’” she notes. “And looking back at all the sweet moments that they shared, it might tug at the heartstrings a little bit more than usual.”
Moore additionally revealed that the sequence is not going to return to the time interval proper after the funeral this season: “We’re going to go back in time a little bit and we’re going to stay more present-day,” she mentioned, “but we’re not going to revisit the immediate aftermath of this funeral in season 2.”
