'This Is Us' Spoilers: NBC Series Drops Another Shocking Twist; Is Jack Dead? Rebecca Is Married To Miguel, Kevin Is In Trouble

The second episode of "This Is Us" just dropped a major shocker. Rebecca, in present day, is married to Miguel, the best friend of his first husband we saw in last week's episode, Jack. However, the show is also bringing good news as NBC has already ordered for the entire18-episode drama for its first season.

Like the premiere, the latest episode featured multi-timeline scenes going back and forth between the past and the present. In the past timeline, Miguel (Jon Huertas) is giving advice to Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) as his marriage to Rebecca (Mandy Moore) turns sour. However, in the present, their supposed grandchildren called for their grandfather, and it's not Jack -- it's Miguel. Rebecca still wears the necklace from Jack which means the two did not separate and Jack must have died.

Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) were relieved to discover that William (Ron Cephas Jones) hasn't gone back to being a drug addict after his disappearance, instead, he was actually taking care of his cat that was left in Philadelphia.

Kate (Chrissy Metz) is still struggling to lose weight; Toby (Chris Sullivan) encourages her. Unfortunately for Kevin (Justin Hartley), he is not gaining much support. The man is suffering a meltdown and still trying to save an inch of his integrity, but his agent (Katey Sagal) and the network president (Brad Garrett) don't really care much about his pride or conscience.

Meanwhile, Dan Fogelman's dramedy has good news. NBC has signed for an 18-episode order of "This Is Us" courtesy of the show's critical acclaim and hit ratings.

"It's a rare moment in this business when a show so instantly delivers both critical acclaim and hit ratings, but 'This Is Us' is just such an extraordinary achievement. Creator Dan Fogelman, along with co-directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa and the gifted producers, cast and crew, have delivered the kind of heart and depth that resonates with every segment of the audience, and we're proud to extend its presence on our schedule." NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said.

Folgeman expressed his happiness about the news, saying that it will "boost" the confidence of the entire "This is Us" cast and crew.

"We are thrilled. This order for a complete first season of 18 episodes is exactly what we'd wanted and hoped for," he said.

"This Is Us" airs every Tuesday on NBC.
