She gets pissed that he’s drinking again and starts to insult him. Ben, who is Rebecca’s ex, grabs her hands and tells her it’s going to be OK before leaning in for a kiss. And then she goes to bed. Upset by his advances, Rebecca flees backstage. If her were secure with his love for his wife and the assertion that she can be a mother and a singer, Jack wouldn’t be throwing a hissy fit about her revisiting her passion. All she wants is to talk to her husband, but no one is home when she calls the house. The young man was fixing the woman’s vehicle who can only afford $5, as TVLine reported. She tells him not to apologize because she knows he feels bad. Jack’s not interested, but he can’t refuse her.
Really? Miguel? Sure he was a great friend to Jack, but that is why this whole thing is so messed up.
To try and scrape up enough cash Jack hatches a plan with Miguel to rob a lounge. She tells Ben the tour is over before driving Jack home. One of them is getting married and the other one is pregnant. They didn’t even tell her to her face.
He continued that his and Moore’s characters “got to a heated place where you need to step back”.
Meanwhile this episode also wraps up the season-long dilemmas of Jack and Rebecca’s children Randall (Sterling K. Brown), Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Kevin (Justin Hartley). It’s with her old buddy (and fling) Ben, and she jumps at the chance. And then when we stepped onto set, I saw our chairs in the room, and I walked in the back, and I picked up the chair and I walked out.
In the late “70s, Jack is struggling to get a job and save money to buy an auto body shop with his buddy, Daryl”. But Rebecca and Jack are meant to be.
It’s odd to say that the episode was a huge letdown considering that it was still a fantastically produced, directed, written and acted hour of television, but the bar was set pretty high.
The actors play husband and wife Rebecca and Jack Pearson, who are parents to triplets, on the beloved NBC series and admit to ET that their view on relationships has changed since joining the show. The song choice represents a full circle moment for Moore and her character, as the album of covers marked her breakaway from pop music and Rebecca’s impromptu performance led her to Jack. She’s come through a period where she’s finally beginning to deal with some of her internal damage, and also: What does she really want from her life? Jack is not seeing things the same way. His role in the season was, largely, to inform the more robust narrative arcs of his three children; his ghost was a far more compelling presence than he himself was.
“You were my big break”. But perhaps the bigger question now is: What was the state of Jack and Rebecca’s marriage when he passed away? Jack’s not there, though. They both scream at each other about how they have been wronged. Even the ’70s scenes carried that distracting weight: Is the gangster going to track down Jack 25 years later to kill him? This doesn’t even begin to appease Rebecca and it quickly becomes apparent this is about much more than Jack going on a bender.
Do you think Jack and Rebecca are together when he meets his tragic fate? Before he leaves, Jack reveals that he was supposed to have another date the night he met Rebecca. Jack figures the cashier, an older man, will leave the register open when he answers the phone. Because of this, Rebecca started to doubt herself and her singing abilities. And the rest was history. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the show’s first season finale threw viewers for an emotional loop.
