This Is Us will soon show the events that led to Jack Pearson's death, and all fan speculation regarding how it went down will finally be laid to rest. With that said, here are a few theories we have regarding how Jack lost his life and how his death connects to some of the other clues fans have been teased with prior to the reveal:

Dog This Is Us

Jack Died In The Fire After Going Back To Save The Dog

This theory is the front-runner because a lot of the plot supports it and it feels like the most obvious and realistic scenario that could unfold. Many fans of This Is Us had already theorized Jack met his end saving someone from the fire, and Kate's recently revealed apprehension of dogs in the present could confirm this. Fans know Kate blames herself for the death of Jack, and while the teaser for the next episode showed Jack readying himself to rescue his daughter, there was no mention of the dog, who was last seen sleeping downstairs.

We know from a scene in an earlier episode that took place at Miguel's following the incident the dog survived. We also know Jack would go to any length to keep Kate happy, so it isn't hard to imagine him entering the burning building once more if she was upset. In this scenario, the dog found its way out either before or with the help of Jack. Then Jack, either unaware of where the dog was or unable to maneuver his way out of the house, perished in the fire. Kate, unable to cope with the grief, blamed herself and avoided dogs in the future due to the trauma of the event.
