Sneak Peeks


10/11/2016 (09:00PM - 10:00PM) (Tuesday) : Rebecca (Mandy Moore) makes a surprise visit to Randall's (Sterling K. Brown) home where she encounters his biological father, William (Ron Cephas Jones). Kevin (Justin Hartley) anxiously decides to take the plunge and move to New York to pursue a Broadway job, with the expectation that his sister, Kate (Chrissy Metz), will move with him. Toby (Chris Sullivan) is determined to get Kate out of Kevin's shadow and prepares a special day where she is in the limelight. Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca take home their babies from the hospital and adjust to the new life of parenthood, while coping with the loss of their other child. Rebecca struggles to connect with their adopted child and searches for answers.

Promo & Post Mortem Interview

“It’s a reveal that asks so many questions that are left to be discovered,” Ventimiglia tells EW. “The journey of all of this is the greater fun than the actual outcome, like on another show where [you ask], ‘Are they all dead? Are they all alive? What’s the thing?’” says Ventimiglia. “But this — you know that in the present day, Rebecca ends up with Miguel. Wow. When did all that happen? When did they fall in love? Have they always been in love or was there something that happened?” Chimes in Moore: “Were they divorced? Did they get divorced? Did he die? You just don’t know the trajectory of what their relationship was. It’s very much open-ended, even though that’s a big reveal. It’s like…” — she clutches her heart, feigns pain, and moans — “uuuuuhhhhhhhhh. There are so many question marks.”

Here’s one: While the actors knew this gut punch was coming (“we didn’t quite realize it was going to be in the second episode,” notes Moore), how did Moore feel when she discovered that Rebecca’s present-day husband was not Jack, the man with whom she was so in love in the premiere? “The fact that she would be with somebody else… feels like a betrayal in some way,” she says, though is quick to add: “In my mind I don’t feel like it is. I don’t know the answer to that definitively at this point.”
