This Is Us will air an 80-minute special episode this Sunday after the Super Bowl, and Mandy Moore promises that this particular episode will be a “good soul-crusher,” Us Magazine is reporting. In fact, so heartbreaking will be the episode that writer Emily Longeretta believes that NBC viewers will be talking about the episode more than they’ll be talking about Super Bowl LII.
Star Mandy Moore stopped by the magazine for an exclusive interview about the upcoming episode, and she warns fans that they’ll need plenty of tissues.
“I mean, I filmed it and it was really hard on every level. I think it’s … I think it’s gonna be a good soul-crusher.”
In addition to tears, which This Is Us delivers in spades, the episode promises something that the show has been rather short on delivering: answers. In short, says Mandy, all of your questions will be answered (and NBC promos for the episode promise the same thing).
