Now that This Is Us finally revealed the circumstances behind Jack Pearson's death, one might think Season 2 is winding down. According to Sterling K. Brown, there's still a lot to look forward to in the season's final three episodes, and the actor was kind enough to tell fans what the series has yet to give fans before the wait for Season 3:
There's a lot that transpires in the last three episodes of the season. We go to Vegas tonight for Toby and Kate's joint bachelor-bachelorette party. We have a beautiful standalone episode for episode 17 that I won't say too much about. And the season finale will answer some questions and, as always, explore new possibilities for where we're going to be going in season three.
Those who thought This Is Us was phoning in the rest of the season thought wrong, as Sterling K. Brown teased quite a few things to look forward to. The Season 2 finale will apparently provide a setup for Season 3, which makes it sound as though yet another big show mystery is about to be revealed. With flashforwards in play, its possible that This Is Us could jump ahead to a future event and reveal something that hasn't happened yet in the present timeline. That'd be enough to keep most fans invested for Season 3, although with Deja's return, more Miguel appearances, and Jack's time in Vietnam all being teased going forward, it's hard to say just what the show has in store. If Brown knows, he's not spilling the beans. The actor told ETOnline he'd have creator Dan Fogelman pretty angry if he started sharing show secrets.
In fact, the only episode Sterling K. Brown was a bit forthcoming about was the Vegas episode, which he remarked is one of the more positive episodes This Is Us has done to date. Brown said tissue boxes won't be necessary for "Vegas, Baby," which will show the Pearson clan intermixed with Toby and Kate's friends on a bachelor/bachelorette trip in Sin City:
I will say this, if ever there was a joyous episode ofThis Is Us, tonight may be a more joyous occasion. I would not be surprised if the people who are accustomed to shedding tears might save a tear or two with tonight's episode.
Sterling Brown also mentioned a "beautiful standalone episode," and while the episode could focus on any one character, Jack Pearson seems to be the obvious pick. This Is Us promos have teased a younger Jack headed to Vietnam, and with the death of his brother taking place during the war, that seems as good a time as any to knock out such a story. It's also possible This Is Us could do another self-contained episode like "The Car," in which case who knows what random Pearson family object the show will write a story around that makes fans cry their eyes out.
This Is Us airs on NBC Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. ET. For a list of other upcoming television shows, visit our midseason premiere guide.
