How I Hold me to the strange story?
It's usually pretty obvious to know when history jumps back into the past, because the hairstyles, clothes, and music usually reflect the era. There are even references to gadgets such as the old Crockpot, which became an early symbol of sadness in this story. NBC's First Look video for the third season lets viewers know that for the first time they will experience different eras, such as Jack's time in the Vietnam War when he first met Rebecca and the future of Randall's daughters after 2018. TV Guide has some potential Spoilers that could also help.
Will I cry?
If you have a soul, yes, probably. This Is Us received the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Award for Tearjerker, and the honor is well deserved. Each episode seems to follow a constant arc, tending to drag particularly hard in the middle and at the end, so that you can strengthen yourself for the waterworks, but it is still difficult to hold them back. (19659017) There were lightning flashes indicating that Toby Damon eventually falls into a deep, bedridden depression after he married Kate, so it will be hard to watch her. Luckily, at #ThisIsUs Twitter will be full of emotion at every show if you need a lot of company.
