Check out these exclusive teases for This is Us season 2, episode 3, so you know what you need to emotionally prepare for!

The mystery of Jack’s death is unfolding rapidly in This is Us season 2, with new clues being dropped on us in every episode. Not only will these 5 exclusive, spoiler-free teases for the new episode help you prepare for the latest hints, but they’ll also help you budget how many tissues you’ll need this week!

1. Jack reveals one of the secrets of his past to Rebecca

We’ve come to know that Jack Pearson is basically the world’s best husband, but we also know that he has some pretty big secrets. While most of these secrets are from his life before he met Rebecca, he’s hidden a few things from her during their marriage, as well.

As Jack struggles to conquer his alcoholism, he’s vowed to not work through it alone, but to involve his family. Obviously, that includes talking to Rebecca honestly. As he’s doing so in This is Us season 2, episode 3, he shares one of his secrets from season 1 with his wife, for the first time.

2. Kevin is challenged in new ways

Kevin always seems to be the sibling who has things the easiest. He was basically a superstar in their younger days, and although he struggled with his career in This is Us season 1, it all turned out pretty amazingly. He even waltzed right back into his ex-wife’s (who he cheated on) life and won her back!

In This is Us season 2, episode 3, Kevin deals with some real problems (in both timelines) that affect him greatly in the episode, and will likely continue to do so in This is Us season 2.

3. The origins of Kate’s dog are revealed

Remember that mysterious dog in Kate’s lap on the night (presumably) that Jack died? He/she returns in This is Us season 2, episode 3!

The circumstances around the appearance of the dog don’t necessarily give us any more clues about Jack’s death, but it does help to rule out some of the options

4. We learn something new about William

When William died in This is Us season 1, we were terrified that we’d never see him again. Luckily, the powers that be know just how beloved a character he became, and they seem to be finding ways to keep him around.

Not only do we get to see William again in This is Us season 2, episode 3, but we also get to discover something new about his time at the Pearson’s. It’s still very important to Randall to remember and honor both Jack and William, so the longer we can keep them both around, the better.

5. Young Kevin and Kate help Randall get through a difficult situation

We’ve seen surprisingly little of the Big Three’s interactions during their teenage years, so far, on This is Us. In season 2, episode 3, we get too see them band together to get Randall through something very difficult.

Even though Randall and Kevin have mended their relationship, it’s still nice to see them being there for each other, since we know they’ve had their rough patches. It’s even rare to see Randall and Kate bonding, so it’s a very nice moment.

What are you most excited to see in ‘This is Us’ 2×03?

Quentin Tarantino says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior: ‘I knew enough to do more than I did’

In a new interview with The New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino — whose films have largely been distributed by The Weinstein Company — admits he knew how Harvey Weinstein treated women.

Earlier this month The Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports revealing horrific behavior by TWC founder Harvey Weinstein. The reports — and the revelations that came in the days after — rocked Hollywood.

Tarantino remained silent until Thursday’s interview. In it, he tells The Times he “knew enough to do more than I did.”

“It was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said, referencing the stories recently shared by “prominent” actresses.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Tarantino admits that he can offer nothing but a “crappy” excuse at this point. Even though he heard stories about his business partner on multiple occasions, he “chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. As if that’s O.K. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

The director, whose most recent film The Hateful Eight was distributed by The Weinstein Company, says that he tried to reach out to the disgraced Hollywood mogul after the reports were published, but Weinstein didn’t pick up. More of Tarantino’s remarks can be read over on The Times’ website.

As more women share their stories, Hollywood is starting to take (some) action. Last week The Weinstein Company fired their founder, and The Academy voted to remove him from their ranks.

Explaining their vote to expel him, The Academy said in a statement, “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society.”
