In need of a good cry?
Then today is your lucky day, because NBC dropped a clip from Season 2 of This Is Us and it’s … emotional.
In the teaser, we see Randall (Sterling K. Brown) tell his mother, Rebecca (Mandy Moore), that this wife, Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson), is having doubts about adopting a child. “Beth’s struggling with the adoption,” he says. “How did you guys decide with me?”
That’s when Rebecca shares what really happened at the hospital after she lost one of the triplets and husband Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) introduced her to baby Randall, who had been left there the night before.
Rebecca admits she initially said no to adopting, but Jack persisted. “But your father was so sure,” she says.
“Sometimes in marriage,” she continues, “someone has to be the one to push to make the big moves. … He pushed a stranger on me, and that stranger became my child, and that child became my life.”
What else will we find out in Season 2?
Jake’s fate, for one. “If that is a question that’s haunting people, in the course of the second season they will get all the answers they need,” executive producer Dan Fogelman said at the Television Critics Association press tour on Aug 3.
Oh, and Sylvester Stallone guest stars.
This Is Us returns to NBC on Sept. 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
