We’re only hours away from the This Is Us finale, and the cast and crew are counting down the final episode of the season.
This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman shared a hilarious (and very NSFW) text exchange he had with series star Milo Ventimiglia, who plays beloved patriarch Jack Pearson, after the 39-year-old actor read the finale script for the first time.
Take a deep breath guys, it’s going to be OK … is it?
Last night, Ventimiglia dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he implored fans of the show to focus on how Jack lived, instead of the fact that he’s dead in the present day.
"The one thing that you do know is Jack is dead, and everybody's fascinated with knowing how, and when and why," Ventimiglia said, teasing that fans “maybe” will get answers to Jack’s death in the finale. "The thing that I keep thinking about, or keep talking about to people is, worry about how he's living -- why he's living. Those are the moments. You don't want to focus on death. You want to focus on his life."
"I think people need to put away their desire to know and be satisfied with that, and know that it's coming," he explained. "It could be the next episode. It could be the second to last episode. It could be a ways away."
This Is Us airs its finale Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
