    Mandy Moore is a revelation, and she deserves recognition. She is simply stunning in this episode.

    Also, I am not in a very good emotional state right now. What a wonderfully written, directed, edited, and performed episode. Less Toby though.

    I haven’t watched an episode of this show in ages, but believe me when I say I’m sincerely emotionally wrecked right now. Or maybe these are some leftover happy tears from the Eagles winning. I don’t even know anymore.

    That twist was good, but Eagles winning still got me on a high.

    This was a brilliant episode. It didn’t break me emotionally, though, because seeing the Patriots lose gave me life.

    This would be a much better submission for Chrissy Metz than “Number Two” in which she was overshadowed a lot. Mandy was still better than her in this too, but Chrissy’s performance was the best I’ve seen her do so far this season. It also may not matter if they are in separate categories.

    I’m floored and devastated by all of this! Can’t really discuss properly yet.

    Mandy Moore, get in the ring and go up against ALLL OF THEMM at the Emmys! Foy, Moss, Davis, Russell, Wright, Danes, etc. It’s time, bitches! #SheReady!

    But I can talk about the one unexpected twist that will open up the series once again! Wow. I wasn’t ready for Old Randall. They just did that shit! I also have a sneaking, dreading suspicion that Beth isn’t a part of this timeline. Heartbreaking!

    The sound cut out for a key scene and I was like noooo! Ugh!

    Mandy Moore deserves all of the awards! I think she can beat Foy, Moss and Wright. It won’t be easy, though.

    With all these twists and turns I feel like I’m watching LOST again, and I’m totally OK with that.

    Wow, what an incredible episode. I give the writers a lot of credit because in other hands, this show easily could have fizzled out after the first season, but they are still keeping this interesting.

    I echo with most have said above regarding this being Moore’s year for the Emmy. Between this episode, the therapy episode, and the grocery store meltdown, she would really be a worthy winner over some of the repeat contenders.

    Metz also impressed me alot, and this episode could help her in supporting.

    Hartley was also impressive during his tree scene, but he’s stepped up his game overall all season long. Might even break into Supporting Actor.

    Sterling always brings his game, but I would actually prefer if the Emmys rewarded Milo this season. He has SOOOO many great moments and he is most deserving of the cast this year imo.

    A+ episode. I loved it but I was a bawling mess too.

    The hardest I’ve cried at an episode of this show or any tv show in some time, but it was the unexpected smaller moments with Kate, Kevin, Randall and that stellar final scene that hit me hardest. Even the last ten seconds of the preview for Tuesday’s episode made me cry! This was so good. I feel like even if people tuned into this show for the first time, you’d still get a great feel for what it is and the buzz that was supposed to draw attention to this episode (the house fire, Jack’s death) didn’t overshadow the rest of the episode. I am excited to see what the show does now that this mystery is solved. I never thought it would get to a point where Jack’s death became central to the show, and I’m excited to not necessarily have that linger over the plot going forward. And as for that last scene – one time only or is this a new layer going forward? I nearly lost my breath. I’ll echo the sentiments for Mandy Moore. Stunning work. Milo Ventimiglia dominated the first half of season two, but Mandy Moore has stepped it up from already great work to showstopping. I’m excited for Tuesday’s episode and the future of the series now that this hurdle has been cleared.

    With the sound cut off when Kate was looking at the video on the cloud and telling Toby about Jack? (did this happen for anyone else?) and the DVR not capturing the entire episode for the Super Bowl overrun (I scheduled multiple shows after this episode to tape, but received “programming update” cancellations instead), I was pissed that I can’t rewatch this. Nevertheless, this was a stunning episode that accomplished so much all at once. Resolve Jack’s death FINALLY, showcase Mandy Moore in a way that I frankly didn’t think she was capable of (yassss, bitch!), give the Big Three conflicting reactions to the anniversary of Jack’s death, bring Deja back (kinda figured we’d see her again since she’s such an endearing character and young actress), and add the new wrinkle (no pun intended) of Old Randall and adult Tess. All kinds of “Lost”-era realness there, and I dig it lol. Like I mentioned before, I have a sneaking suspicion that Beth isn’t around for this timeline. There was a clear sadness with this new version of Randall that would be explained by the loss and partly why Tess has taken on this career choice. Hope the ratings for this are high and bring a new audience for the series moving ahead. “This Is Us” can threaten for the Drama Series win now BTW.

    Agreed with all of this. I’d love to see Milo be recognized, he deserves it. Sterling is always amazing, but Milo has so many stand-out moments.

    I also think Chrissy is starting to really deserve her nomination.

    Justin and Mandy 100% deserve to be nominated now. Mandy could possibly win, imo.

    Honestly, I’d be ok if the show won too.

    I haven’t cried this much since “The Son” from Friday Night Lights.

    I’m rooting for Mandy to win at this point. We still have to see what Moss and Wright do in their respective shows, though. Foy is always a formidable threat at any awards show and Maslany is back in the fold this year. Drama Lead Actress is a freaking bloodbath.

    Mandy Moore coming for that Emmy. She’s earned her nomination tonight and after the ratings this episode has gotten, I’ll be stunned if she didn’t get nominated.
