There's a lot of buzz surrounding this week's episode of the NBC hit show, "This Is Us." At the end of last week's episode, viewers saw that Jack and Rebecca Pearson forget to get batteries for their smoke detector while at the store. It's just another step closer to the inevitable, which is learning how Jack Pearson dies. We know it's coming, but are viewers really ready to see it take place, along with the pain that it brings to the Pearson family?

Only five episodes remain

This Tuesday will mark episode number 13 in season 2 of "This is Us [VIDEO]." The episode, titled "That'll Be the Day," has the following synopsis: Kevin helps Randall and Beth with a project; Kate contemplates a big gift for Toby; Jack and Rebecca talk about their future.

There's not much meat to the synopsis, but for those who follow the show and have been keeping track of the subtle clues, it's about that time to learn Jack's fate. Even though fans of "This is Us" know that Jack dies young, they feel the need to know more, and all season long viewers have been patiently waiting to see how he dies.

Most assume that Jack dies in a fire, but you can never be too sure, because the writers of this show know how to throw a curve ball.

After the January 23 episode, there will be a short break. Episode number 14 won't air in the usual Tuesday night time slot. Instead, the show will take place on Sunday, February 4 right after Super Bowl LII. The season finale will take place March 13.

Screen Actors Guild Awards

On Sunday, January 21, the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards took place. The annual awards show was hosted by actress Kristen Bell. This year, "This is Us" took home two SAG Awards. The show won an award for "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series." Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Jack Pearson, took the stage with the rest of the cast and thanked the dedicated fans who watch each week.

"This is Us" beat out some heavy-hitters in the drama category, including "The Crown," "Game of Thrones," "Stranger Things," and "The Handmaid's Tale."

Sterling K. Brown won the SAG Award for "Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series." Brown plays Randall Pearson on "This is Us" and must be doing a pretty good job at it. Earlier this month, the 41-year-old actor won a Golden Globe for "Best Actor in a Drama TV Series." He also has two Emmy awards under his belt for his role as Randall Pearson.
