In the scene, an older Rebecca reminisces about that day, a Randall’s request -- who calls his adoption one of his favorite stories of his childhood. It’s revealed in the flashback that Rebecca didn’t originally want to adopt Randall, but it was Jack who kept pushing. “I was tired and grieving,” Rebecca recalls in the clip, telling Randall: “He pushed a stranger on me, and that stranger became my child and that child became my life. He became you.”
Fogelman also addressed the biggest question that continues to surround the series: How did Jack die? The showrunner promised that the second season will provide all of those answers that viewers have been wondering.
