Fans of This Is Us finally experienced the moment they’ve all been waiting for when Milo Ventimiglia joined Jimmy Kimmel on his late night television show.
Milo sat down with Jimmy and was asked if he could just tell him how Jack dies. Milo says that they all know he can’t, even when Jimmy asks if he could just tell him ‘as friends’, but he agrees to do Jimmy, the audience, and viewers at home one better.
Milo says he can list off the ways Jack didn’t die on This Is Us, and well, everyone agreed that it was better than nothing. With a grin and even giggle at times, here are the reasons Milo says were not the causes of Jack’s death.
- He clearly didn’t die by sticking his head in a microwave while making popcorn. So we crossed that off of our top 5 reasons we thought his character perished.
- He didn’t die while eating a peanut butter and banana sandwich on the toilet – like Elvis.
- He didn’t die from, well, gluten.
- He didn’t die from being overcome with emotion at a Justin Bieber concert. There goes another reason on our top 5 list.
Now, last but not least, Jack didn’t die giving birth; so all in all, we know just about as much as we did before – just don’t let him know we said that.
Characters on the series have said, more than once, that Jack is so much more than his death, his life is what we should focus on and we agree with that totally and completely, but you can’t blame us for loving Milo’s ‘spoilers’.
Plus, weren’t we all worried about that Elvis thing?
