"This Is Us" fans have been wearily waiting for the death of Jack Pearson and Tuesday they began freaking out that tonight might be the night.
Fans are on high alert after it was leaked that even media -- which normally gets screeners ahead of the air time (jealous?) -- didn't get an opportunity to view the episode before it premieres on NBC.
"All I have to say is if TONIGHT is the night that they reveal how Jack dies, I'm taking bereavement leave tomorrow," one fan tweeted.
"I am genuinely afraid of tonight's 'This Is Us.' Turns out I do not need to know how Jack dies or see it or feel that pain thanks byeeeeeeeeeee," another added.
The death of Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) has been teased since Season 1. Based upon the breadcrumbs that the brilliant writers have so graciously dropped for us, fans believe his alcoholism plays a role in the inevitable fire accident. Last week, the writers ridiculously foreshadowed the fire by pandering to the lowest common denominator of forgetting to buy new batteries for their home's smoke detector.
