Rebecca Pearson’s Challenging Chapter
This Is Us season 5 spoilers from The Hollywood Reporter reveal that Rebecca will have a challenging chapter. Creator Dan Fogelman wouldn’t give too many details but did say Rebecca has a huge storyline in the upcoming season. He also said it would be a difficult chapter for the character. He wasn’t just talking about her health issues, though.
In season 5, Rebecca will move to St. Louis with Miguel. We will learn more about her history with him over the decades. Viewers will get to learn just how helpful (or hurtful) he will be when it comes to her cognitive decline.
Backstory With Miguel Rivas
This Is Us fans have gotten to know a little bit about Miguel, who was Jack Pearson’s (Milo Ventimiglia), friend and co-worker. After Jack died, Miguel tried to help out the widow. However, fans have different opinions on his intentions. In an interview with TV Insider, Moore talked about the challenge of getting fans to embrace Miguel and Rebecca’s relationship. The actress admitted that writers are concerned about it being compared to her romance with Jack.
Not A Replacement For Jack Pearson
Viewers love Rebecca and Jack. This could make it complicated to get fans rooting for Miguel and it has to be done right. Enough time has to pass, the evolution of the relationship has to be natural, and he can’t be a Jack fill-in. The romance has to be able to stand on its own, and we want to see something special about Miguel that will make us root for him.
Mandy Moore Ready To Embrace It
Moore is excited about the storyline. She feels that Rebecca and Miguel both deserve a new lease on life together. She is ready to embrace her character’s relationship and see how the writers bring the two together.
“We’ve been talking about it for so many years and I feel like this is finally the season. I know that that’s something that the writers are anxious to explore. And I feel like that will be one of the greatest tricks of the show, is getting people to get on board with Rebecca and Miguel.”
