It all hit the fan in this week's pearl-clutching episode.
One thing is certain, after three seasons this show is still finding new and creative ways to shock us.
So, we found out this week what happened to Nicky in Vietnam, and it was bad. Like, really bad. Like, not This Is Us bad, but like Requiem for a Dream bad.
While the episode was heavy on the tears and sadness, there were a few hidden gems throughout "Songbird Road: Part One" mostly due to the Pearson siblings' bonding moments in the car.
Songbird Road: Part One is the show's most overt critique of Jack Pearson yet.
He [Jack] was a man with demons and regrets who did not always have the answers - and that's a very interesting story to get to explore.
The Big Three are back together, the multiple-timelines structure is used to reveal the layers of one story...This week, This Is Us remembers what it's great at, and we are truly living once more.
Considering how much the "Us" creators love to overdo a good dramatic twist, the way this particular mystery was resolved seemed almost tastefully restrained.
A darker, deeper story than any of them could've expected.
