Darryl Magee
Mrs. Peabody


1972. Jack has recently returned from the Vietnam War, where he worked as a mechanic. He has been working odd jobs for whatever he will be paid in pursuit of his many goals: to open a garage with his friend Darryl, to move out of his parents' house so that he never has to deal with his abusive father again, and to get his mother out from his father's control. Jack comes to the conclusion that he has to reach for what he wants as opposed to letting life come to him. This attitude takes Jack into some uncharted territory, some risky and dangerous, and others just unexpected. Meanwhile, Rebecca, whose friends are largely getting married or starting families, is focusing on her singing career, she just having produced a demo and singing regularly at open mic nights at bars on the weekends. Because of the small percentage of performers who make it big, Rebecca's friends encourage her to "diversify", namely to place some energy into finding a nice guy to marry which may entail going on some...

Jack Pearson: [fighting with Rebecca] This is insane. We love each other.
Rebecca Pearson: What do you love about me?
Jack Pearson: Huh?
Rebecca Pearson: What do you love about me? Tell me. The me as I am right now, not the me that you've conjured up in your mind over the years; what do you love about me right now, Jack?
[Jack doesn't know what to say]
Rebecca Pearson: So the next time you tell me that you love me, make sure you're not doing it just out of habit.

Strong episode, but not all that we wanted in a finale.
15 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Is Us audiences have been wanting to find out how Jack Pearson dies since very early on in the season when we found out he had passed away and Rebecca was now married to Miguel. We've all been itching for that episode. We've all been wanting to know what happened. Here in the past few episodes, it's been teased that we may find out in the season finale. Even in the most recent episode, Kate hints to us by telling Toby that she feels responsible for why he died, so it was natural for us to expect we may find out in the finale. Not so fast! I'm not going to butcher this episode's rating because there were still a couple powerful scenes between Jack and Rebecca, but I don't think it's quite what we were all hoping for.
