Whether it’s Randall, Kate, or Kevin, The Big Three are some of the most relatable characters on television. But they’re not alone. Jack and Rebecca Pearson are the top couple of cable TV, but a recent switch-up IRL may make some nervous. Milo Ventimiglia shaved his This Is Us mustache, and given the events of Season 2 of the Emmy-nominated series, that made not bode well for his future. If you’re not caught up on this season of the series, you should probably stop reading now because spoilers are ahead.
One of the biggest questions of Season 2 of This Is Us is how Jack Pearson died. Given that season 1’s big shocker was that Jack Pearson is dead, Season 2’s arc seems kind of obvious. The creators of the show didn’t keep fans dangling on a string. Ventimiglia’s fan favorite dad and husband passed away after saving the family dog and photo albums from a house fire caused by a defective Crockpot. Very suburban.
Now, Ventimiglia’s mustache and long, signature Jack Pearson dad hair has been shorn, according to People. So have fans seen the last of the puppy saving hero? While it’s tough not to read into the haircut, keep in mind that the show isn’t exactly linear in its progression.
