18 Reactions We All Had During The Super Bowl Sunday Episode of 'This Is Us'

Grab tissues because there are spoilers ahead.

With puffy eyes from crying the night before and an empty tissue box on my bedside table, I personally cannot get over the recent This Is Us episode. It's the one we've all been waiting for and dreading—the one where we find out how Jack Pearson dies. Needless to say, it was an emotional rollercoaster and I decided to recap some of the many top moments of the episode below.

1. When the episode is about to start and you have to start bracing yourself for the tears that are most definitely going to fall.

2. When Jack opens the door and sees the fire in the hallway.

3. When Jack continues to go out into the fire to get Kate and Randall and you (once again) realize how much of a great guy he is.

4. When they’re all out of the house, but Jack goes back inside to get the dog and you think he didn’t make it.

5. Only to find out that he did make it out WITH the dog and everything seems to be okay (for now).

6. When Jack shows Rebecca all of the "important things" he got out of the house when he went inside to get the dog and you start to cry even more.

7. When you see the preview for the Eagles vs. Patriots game on Kate's television and stop to celebrate the outcome of the game.

8. When Jack and Rebecca are at the hospital looking through the window and it flashes back to the two of them on the first episode after The Big Three was born.

9. When Kate tells Toby that it was her fault Jack died and she wants one day to beat herself up over it.

10. But when the tape of her singing that Jack recorded was recovered and put “on the cloud.”

11. When Rebecca is on the phone calling Miguel and the kids and you see the doctors start to run around in the background so you know something bad is going to happen.

12. When we finally hear the words "Mrs. Pearson, your husband has died." and you realize Jack died from cardiac arrest.


13. When Rebecca tells Miguel about Jack's death and how she has to be strong for her kids before she tells them what happened.

14. When Kevin goes to talk to his dad by his dad's tree and says he wants to make his dad proud of him.

15. When Kate tells Toby that he saved her life and that Jack would've loved him.

16. When Rebecca says that Jack sent her Kevin this year to make her laugh on Superbowl Sunday.

17. When you suddenly realize the girl arranging a foster home for the little boy is Tess in the future.

18. When you finally make it to the preview of the next episode and think you're okay until you see clips of the funeral and learn that Dr. K is going to be in it.

So grab more tissues and hug the person closest to you because it looks like more tears will be falling during the next episode! Then again, doesn't every episode make us cry?

13 Movies Every Couple Needs To Watch Before They Get Married

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories.


These 13 movies are the foundation of any long-lasting relationship, and I'm not joking. Each movie will show you something new about your partner, and make you ask each other the hard questions. How many kids do you want and how are you going to raise them? What would happen if you got into a horrible accident? Some are less serious though, like what if you could time travel?

I promise that not every one of these movies is a Nicholas Sparks classic, and I also promise that not every movie has Rachel McAdams in it!

1. "The Time Traveler's Wife"

This movie is both heartbreaking and amazing.

2. "About Time"

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories. It's on Netflix right now, so grab some snacks and turn it on!

3. "Like Crazy"

This infamous Tumblr gif came from "Like Crazy." It's about a couple who goes long distance and build their life together. I used to cry every time I watched it, and I'm no crier! It also has the (now famous) Felicity Jones in it.

4. "The Notebook"

Every girl wants this kind of love.

5. "The Last Song"

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are literally married now so if that isn't good luck, I don't know what is.

6. "Safe Haven"

You guessed it! This is another Nicholas Sparks classic. This movie has a dark twist as well, which men will love.

7. "Inside Out"

You may be thinking that this one is a bit weird. Well, this movie will help both you and your partner understand each other's emotions better.

8. "The Choice"

This movie is great because the female lead is feisty and extremely intelligent, which usually doesn't happen in love stories. How do you keep the love alive with a woman who is hard to get, and even harder to keep entertained?

9. "The Longest Ride"

Originally I could not stand the main female lead (Britt Robertson) but now she is in one of my favorite shows (For The People), so I have no choice. This movie had me on the end of my seat, and as a rom-com it is a must.

10. "The Age Of Adaline"

I began loving the name 'Adaline' thanks to this movie. This unlikely love story and self love journey really gets me.

11. "The Vow"

Imagine falling in love with someone and building a life, but an accident forces you to start all over?

12. "Titanic"

If they don't have any sort of reaction to this movie, they are probably not the one for you.

13. "Yours, Mine, & Ours"

Yours, Mine, & Ours is a true classic. Are you Helen or Frank Beardsley? You should figure that out before you tie the knot!

You're welcome!
