This Is Us Season 6 Episode 4 Recap

Jack was adamant about going on this journey alone, but in the end, he needed his family. Perhaps that was the point of this excruciating journey down memory lane. Jack’s wife and children, like Mike and Debby, gave him a new home, as he said in his rambling, not-quite-memorial-like eulogy. Rebecca arrived with the kids just in time, giving Jack the strength he needed to finish his eulogy.

It was a tribute to both his new family and the mother he had never met. One of the season’s, if not the entire series, overarching themes appears to be that families are inherently flawed, but they do their best for one another, and that love transcends death.

A Very Emotional Moment

As you’d expect at a funeral, there were a lot of emotional scenes, but one of the most powerful was when Mike invited Jack to sit with them and toast his mother. Everyone else was telling stories about Marilyn, while Jack sat there nursing his drink and thinking of nothing to say except about the time he was a little boy and she hid his broken sled from his father.

The close-ups of Jack and his drink were enough to say it all. He was no longer a member of Marilyn’s family. Despite the fact that he was her son, he was an outsider looking in. Jack’s backstory was intriguing, but his relationship with his mother and these new characters weren’t enough to keep the hour going. Also, where was Nicky when Jack was reminiscing about his childhood?

The Funeral

Nicky’s funeral took place when he was presumed dead, but he should have been living with Jack and Marilyn at the time. That was a strange and distracting omission. Nonetheless, the strongest part of the hour was Jack’s choice to make hot dogs and tomato soup in remembrance of his mom and his subsequent breakdown. There’s always a moment when you realize the person you loved is no longer with you. Marilyn’s death left a hole in Jack’s life, despite the fact that their relationship consisted mostly of brief phone conversations in which they told one another nothing of importance.
