This Is Us Theory That Could Explain Jack's Death Perfectly

We have a new theory for Jack’s death on NBC's This Is Us and seriously, if this isn't correct we won’t know what is! 

It has been speculated since the Season 1 finale that Milo Ventimiglia's character, Jack, dies in a fire. However this Tuesday night's episode is making us think of a new theory for the character. In tonights episode there seems to be a weird focus on Kate‘s dog. We notice the dog following Kate around the house, and Jack’s character commenting on the dog in a flashback. Flash forward to Chrissy Metzpicking out a dog from a shelter to bring home for Toby, and she can’t seem to bring herself to it. She gets emotional in the scene and it looks like she can’t possibly bring this dog home with her! 

Well what if the fire at the Pearson's house does in fact happen but Jack dies to run in and save Kate's dog from the fire. This would make sense that Kate would think her father's death was her fault. It would also explain her getting emotional when picking out a dog at the shelter! 

Thoughts? Let us know in the comments! 

For fans of NBC's 'This Is Us' Jack Pearson's death has been a mystery since episode five. We know he died when the Big Three were teenagers and that Kate isn't ready to talk about it yet but not much else—and it's killing us! But die-hard fans have their own theories about what happened so right now, we're counting down the 5 most popular theories right here on LISTED.
