This Is Us has only been around for two seasons, but we’re so invested in NBC’s tearjerker drama, we already consider ourselves honorary Pearsons.
And, like any loving family member, we expect to be around for the big moments in the life (and death) of Jack Pearson and his brood.
The series’ Powers That Be already have announced that they’ll expand the storytelling this season, including episodes that will focus on Susan Kelechi Watson’s Beth and Chris Sullivan’s Toby; cast member Jon Huertas recently told TVLine that a Miguel-centric hour is in the works, as well. (Scroll down to watch video.)
So ahead of This Is Us‘ upcoming Season 3, we’ve assembled a wish list of character milestones we’d like to see. Thanks to the show’s heavy use of flashback, we find no reason why we shouldn’t be able to witness, say, Randall and Beth’s first date or Kevin’s start on The Manny, as well as equally significant moments in the lives of Rebecca, Jack, Miguel and Kate.
With that in mind, here are seven flashbacks — and one flash-forward, because why not? — that we’d love to watch in the coming season or beyond.
