‘This Is Us’ viewers believe Jack will ultimately reunite with Rebecca
In a Reddit post titled “Will Jack appear to collect Rebecca?” fans have faith that the couple’s love story will endure.
“I think we will see him sitting on a chair or something (actual Jack, not Kevin-as-Jack) and Rebecca will be surprised to see him and ask why he’s there, and he’ll say something like “Bec, I’ve ALWAYS been here” and all of the Milo fangirls, myself included, will swoon. Then they’ll walk out of the room together, and that will be it,” wrote one fan.
“He’ll come to collect Rebecca, and she’ll feel bittersweet, happy to be reunited with Jack again but sad to leave her loved ones behind. And as they leave, Rebecca will ponder if they will be remembered. Jack will walk her around the house and gesture and softy say “Rebecca, this …” And they’ll walk-out the front door hand in hand as we see scenes of the family mourning, then celebrating birthdays and weddings and concerts. “…This is US!” Cut to black. End scene,” theorized a second viewer.
“Jack will definitely be with Rebecca in the end . I don’t think the triplet will be there as he was never a part of the show really . He will be holding hands with her during a big three milestone birthday party with all of their spouses , grandkids and possibly great grandchildren. They will be watching them and everyone will be smiling and happy. Sappy ? Absolutely! This show has a lot of sap in it and I expect them to try and wring all the tears they can out of viewers,” penned a third Reddit user.
