It's time to celebrate Randall's favorite party!
In the episode on Tuesday of We are, titled "Six Thanksgiving," the story of the Pearsons covered six different Thanksgiving dinners over several decades, from the Vietnam War to the present and several turkey meals of the past. While this year's family reunion at Randall's house was something but Traditional, we still learned a lot about our favorite TV family.
So, what were the biggest revelations of the last episode? Three important developments emerged from the time he can play in the rest of the season in a very significant way.
1. The story behind Jack's mysterious wife is revealed.
We all assumed, like Kevin, that the frayed photograph of Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) with the Vietnamese woman, who was wearing Jack's prized necklace, meant they had an intimate relationship of some kind. Did they forge something close to a friendship? Were they romantics? Did you have any relationship with the mysterious "she" that is referred to in the distant future? It turns out that she was nothing like that. Instead, they were simply known. But how did an acquaintance make such an impact on Jack's life?
During an impromptu Thanksgiving meal in Vietnam, Jack, noticing the woman struggling with two large buckets of water, comes over to help her take them to her hut, looking at Nicky (Michael Angarano), who was in a privileged position to help, for not helping her. A fellow soldier, who had a camera in his hand, takes the picture that Kevin would receive decades later. At first, any theory that suggested any hint of romance between Jack and the woman was still at stake.
Realizing that she has not caught any fish lately, Jack prepares a turkey meal from the leftovers of the squad for her and her family, and it is when he visits his house that he realizes the terrible condition of his son, who had cut Your foot on the wire fence – is. After Nicky refuses to treat her (he later tells a story about a friend who trusted an older woman, only to die because she was an enemy informant), Jack fiercely attempts to sterilize his son's infected wound. She does it successfully and when she leaves, she hands him the necklace.
2. The origins of Miguel and Rebecca's romance come to light.
Last season we learned that Miguel (Jon orchards) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) reconnected through Facebook, several years after Jack's death, but we never had a firm calendar. The episode on Tuesday changed all that. During a conversation at the Thanksgiving dinner table with Miguel and her two older children, she revealed that, after her son, who is a job, had a sarcastic comeback about Miguel and Rebecca's marriage, they did not get involved romantically Until 10 years after Jack's death. Y After his ex, Shelly, he remarried.
"First you steal my father from my mother and now you're trying to kill my brother-in-law," growls Miguel's son. "I'm sorry, too soon." Oof.
"No, not really too soon." After your mother and I split up, I promised my best friend and myself that I would fight to keep them in my life and for a long time I tried. I called every day and sent Christmas. Gifts, I tried to plan things and I was lucky if I received an email from you, so, after a while, I gave up, "says Miguel. "In the anguish, 10 years after the death of your husband and my best friend, and your mother had remarried, Rebecca and I met and filled a gap in life, you do not have to be happy for us , but we're not going to apologize for being together, so take all the shots you want … But the only time you see Rebecca, you show some respect to my wife. "
Preach, Miguel preach.
3. Tess is hiding a big secret.
With Randall, Beth, Annie and Deja out to serve a Thanksgiving meal to the less fortunate, Tess (Eris Baker) stays behind after saying he did not feel very well. It turns out that she was experiencing her first period. After Toby (Chris Sullivan) accidentally enters her trying to figure out what to do about it, Kate (Chrissy Metz) shows her mother's side, teaching Pearson's eldest daughter what to do when that time of the month arrives. But that turned out not to be the only thing that Tess was going through.
When Kate sweetly tells Tess that she can come to her for anything, it's when Tess shares a secret that she has not told him. no one. "I know you have a mother, but if there is anything you want to talk to me about, at any time, you will have your first kiss and your first boyfriend very soon …", says Kate.
"Or … girlfriend," Tess says, catching Kate off guard. "Or girlfriend," Kate replies. Later, when the two of them go down the stairs to continue with the preparation of the Thanksgiving meal, Tess asks her aunt: "Do not tell mom or dad about … you know". "I will not," Kate promises. "But Tess, your parents are going to love you no matter what, so you should tell them." She … and has something to do with "her"?
