It's not the mystery of how Jack died.

In the past, we find the family on Super Bowl Sunday, and now we know where we are in relation to Jack's death and the timeline.

As Season 2 resumes this week, Randall and Beth turn to Kevin for assistance with a new project - a project we can only assume is connected to the building Randall wants to flip. If Jack stayed behind for the kids and Rebecca to climb down some tied up sheets or blankets, it would make sense that they all get out fine.

And that's when all the heartbreak ensues.

If you watched last night's episode of This Is Us, you may have had the urge to throw your slow cooker out the window due to the revelation that Jack perished in a house fire brought on by-dun, dun, dun-a faulty Crock-Pot. Need a refresh? Previously, Rebecca asked Jack to replace the smoke detector batteries, which he evidently failed to do.

The preview for the next episode, which is due to air in the United States on February 4, promises that "all will be revealed". While he can never make amends with Jack, he will always be the person unchecked on his list, Kevin is taking a step forward in the grief process as he starts to understand his father more while attempting to fix the relationships in his life much like Jack did after his AA meeting. Jack will rush back into the burning house. The timing made clear that the fire and Jack's death, which occurred in 1998 when the kids were 17, were intertwined, but it didn't explain how.

Dolores O'Riordan laid to rest
Waite, who received a pair of voicemail messages from O'Riordan just hours before her death, found her in similarly good spirits. The Cranberries enjoyed huge success in the 1990s with tracks including Zombie and Linger.

Mike Zimmer praises Teddy Bridgewater's recovery from devastating knee injury
Bank Stadium on February 4. "Every single day for a long time, that rookie year, I read plays just to help him learn it". Kevin Seifert, NFL writer: There is still great loyalty and sentimentality within the organization toward Bridgewater.

Brokers Set Expectations for Barrick Gold Corp's FY2017 Earnings (TSE:ABX)
Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: ABX ) 's institutional ownership was registered as 72.10%, while insider ownership was 0.10%. The company reported C$0.21 earnings per share for the quarter, meeting the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of C$0.21.

And combined with the events of the most recent episode, which saw Adult-Kate struggling to adopt a dog for Toby, it's not looking good for Jack. But everyone is kind of doing their own thing already anyway: Randall leaves to see Titanic with his girlfriend (can't blame him, honestly), Kate is working on her audition tape for Berklee, and Kevin is still cranky about his injury.

As they were preparing for another Super Bowl, Jack, and Rebecca faced the fact that this will be the last Super Bowl they will spend with the kids who will all be in college by the same time next year, so they decided to make that day count. Randall also mentioned about the difficulty of "outliving" their father.

As Rebecca goes to clean up the kitchen later, she gets a call from Kevin apologizing for lashing out.

In the final moments of the episode, Jack is seen writing a note to his son. But do you really think This Is Us would deliver a reveal that simple?

From the beginning, audiences have known that Milo Ventimiglia's family man Jack Pearson was not alive in the present day on This Is Us.

I will say that the opening five to 10 minutes of the episode - we spent a fortune, we went into the middle of nowhere so nobody would see us, and we built our house.
