‘This Is Us’ Season 2 Episode 13 Recap: So We Finally Learned How That Fire Started

Tonight’s This Is Us revealed something major: the cause of that fire. I know you’re anxious to find out what it is, so let’s get right to the recap. Brace yourselves for this one.

We open with two random older people cleaning out their garage. They’re selling their house, and the wife wants the husband to get rid of his junk. How they are connected to the Pearsons is a mystery at this point, but let’s check in with our usual players…

’90s Pearson Family

It’s Super Bowl Sunday in the Pearson household, and it’s obvious shit’s about to hit the fan. Jack is on the fence about starting his own business and also feeling temptation to drink again, which is why he built a huge wooden entertainment system to watch the big game. Randall’s having a girl over, Alison, to watch the Super Bowl, but he ditches before kickoff to catch a movie with her. I’d be annoyed if Kevin did that, but Randall can do no wrong in my eyes.

Speaking of Teenage Kevin, he’s being his usual horrible self about Super Bowl Sunday and college, scowling and copping attitude and making side-part Rebecca frown. Teenage Kate is in the final rounds of admission for Berklee and has to record an audition tape. Jack wants to film it on camera, but Kate’s like, “I’d rather die.” Same, girl. Geez, the tension’s already building, and I’m shook. No good can happen on Super Bowl Sunday! Teenage Kate implores Jack to stop talking about how beautiful she is because she doesn’t see herself that way. Oof. The takeaway from these scenes thus far is that Jack’s really pissing off his kids.

Teenage Sophie gets into NYU, and Teen Kevin’s mad about it. It causes him and his parents to get into a huge fight about college, and he literally says, “I was supposed to end up in the Super Bowl, not watch it, like you guys.” What. A. Monster. He storms out and goes to Sophie’s. If you’re keeping tabs, that makes two Pearson kids who’ve ditched Super Bowl Sunday thus far.

Oh no: Now Kate‘s ditching the Super Bowl, too. It’s now just Rebecca and Jack in the house. Jack asks Rebecca to be his partner in the home-flipping business he wants to start. (This would be the precursor to him owning a construction company.) She agrees, and they have vivid fantasies about their post-kids life with this new business. Their first clients are an older man and woman who have a one-family household. (Are these the same older people from the top of the episode, perhaps?) Holy shit. I’m bawling, because I know Jack’s about to die…but Rebecca doesn’t! They have sex. I’m terrified. Oh my God. Oh my God. These are genuine emotions I’m feeling. For This Is Us!

Kevin calls and apologizes to Rebecca, but says he doesn’t want to talk to Jack and doesn’t want to come home. Instead, he suggests that he and Sophie go to a “party in the woods.” Oh no. This is why you never go outdoors!

Adult Kevin and Randall

Randall is in way over his head with renovating William’s old apartment building, and Beth tells him this when they go meet the tenants. He agrees to all of these minor repairs and ends up being there for hours. Kevin’s there, too; he calls Randall to make amends post the DUI-Tess debacle and winds up helping him with the repairs. A group of women gather and watch sweaty Kevin knock down a wall, and I relate to that on a spiritual level. Randall thinks he’s doing a good job, but then a bunch of roaches come out of one of the walls he fixed. Whatever, I’d still let him rewire my entire apartment.

Kevin’s all into these renovations because he wants to stay sober. He and Randall have an intense, emotional conversation about how Jack’s been gone longer than they had him. It’s touching. Kevin was also wearing a tank top during this scene, so I’m pleased. Kevin alludes there are some people he won’t be able to make amends with, but hopefully he and Randall can make up. I hate when they fight, TBH. Randall has to send all the tenants to temporary housing while they spray the building for roaches. Beth reads him for filth for screwing up their gig so quickly because of course she does. I love her so much.

Cut to Adult Kevin going to Adult Sophie’s and talking about his addiction. She says the amends he wants from him is to just let her remember the times their relationship was good. She forgives him, but it’s clear this is the end of their time together. Kevin goes back to Randall’s apartment and finds a package addressed to him. In it is his father’s necklace—the one he left at that woman Charlotte’s house when he was drunk. He now can cross Charlotte and Sophie’s names off the list of people he wants to make amends with. There’s only one person left: His father. Oh boy.

Adult Kate

Kate thinks Toby’s watching porn on his computer, but he’s actually flipping through pics of dogs. He wants a dog, but knows that dogs are a “sensitive issue” for Kate. (Remember, Kate’s teenage dog played some kind of hand in The Fire.) But Kate decides to go behind Toby’s back and look for a dog, anyway. And she finds one! She starts the process to adopt it but backs out at the last minute, breaking down in tears at the animal shelter and literally apologizing to the dog. She then storms out. Kate ends up changing her mind, though, and getting the dog—despite the fact it will constantly remind her of Jack. What. The. Hell. Is. About. To. Happen?

The Fire

Everything from this episode led up to the final 10 minutes. Here’s what happened:

Kate’s listening to her Berklee audio tape, loud with headphones on. Randall is back from his date with Alison, and he tells Jack that they kissed. Jack starts doing dishes and putting food away. He then leaves a note on Kevin’s door saying he loves him and that he owes him and Rebecca an apology. Keep in mind that Kevin is now the only kid who isn’t at home.

The older man and woman from the beginning were actually Rebecca and Jack’s old neighbors. When they moved, they gifted Rebecca and Jack with a faulty crockpot. Jack turns off the crockpot when he’s cleaning after the Super Bowl, but it accidentally turns back on in the middle of the night and causes a terrible, all-encompassing fire. The fire slowly but steadily starts moving up the stairs.

And that’s where the episode leaves us. Literally that’s it. I need an ambulance.

Parting thoughts: The next episode airs after the Super Bowl, and the teaser says “all our questions will be answered.” 😳 😳 😳

Enzo Amore Denies Rape Allegations, ‘Cooperating with Authorities’

Enzo Amore

Denies Rape Allegations

‘Cooperating with Authorities’

1/23/2018 4:14 PM PST

Breaking News

Ex-WWE superstar Enzo Amore has broken his silence about allegations he raped a woman back in October — claiming his accuser is lying and he’s working with cops in an effort to clear his name. 

Amore has lawyered up and his attorney issued a statement saying, “Over the last two days, Philomena Sheahan has made multiple public accusations against Eric Arndt (also known as Enzo Amore with the WWE), including allegations of sexual misconduct concerning an October 2017 incident in Phoenix.”

“Mr. Arndt fully and unequivocally denies those accusations.”

“He is cooperating with the authorities in this matter and looks forward to having it resolved in a timely manner. Neither Mr. Arndt nor his counsel will be making any further public comments on this matter.”

As we previously reported, the Phoenix P.D. is investigating Amore after Sheahan claimed he raped her repeatedly in an Arizona hotel room, despite repeated pleas to stop. 

The WWE cut ties with Amore in light of the allegations. 

Even Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Agrees That Arie Luyendyk Jr. Is the Worst Bachelor

There are many things wrong with The Bachelor this season. For one, Peter Kraus—the gap-toothed, wine-loving fan favorite from Rachel Lindsay’s cycle—isn’t the suitor. That fact in itself is upsetting, but to add insult to injury ABC selected a man who’s sole personality trait seems to be his interest in race cars. I’m talking, of course, about Arie Luyendyk Jr. from Emily Maynard’s season. The general response to the bland Luyendyk this season has been tepid, to say the least. He’s boring, monotonous, and, Beyoncé help him, just so awkward.

That can be forgiven, though. What can’t be, however, is how out-of-date this season feels—especially in the context of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements and the fact ABC had its first black Bachelorette last summer. The franchise seemed to be heading in the right direction after Linday’s season, but with Luyendyk we’re back a few steps. His hyper-masculinity is cringe-y, as is the fact he seemingly would rather make out with the female contestants than talk to them. This whole season has felt like a strange frat party so far, and based on last night’s episode, it doesn’t look like it’s getting any better.

We’re not the only ones who think this, either. Even Kareem Abdul-Jabbar—yes, as in the legendary NBA star—wrote a column for The Hollywood Reporter that perfectly sums up the problems with Luyendyk’s season of The Bachelor. If this seems random to you, remember that Abdul-Jabbar actually made a cameo on Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette—so he knows when the franchise is working…and when it’s not. Here, the highlights from his column:

On what makes The Bachelor so entertaining: “Dozens of women compete for the attention of one man, which is to real romance what being trapped in a crowded elevator for two days using an empty Starbucks cup as the only toilet is to an elegant cocktail party. It’s crock-pot romance, with the women constantly stewing on high heat.”

On The Bachelor in the context of Time’s Up: “…with today’s heightened awareness through the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, the entertainment media has a clear responsibility not to perpetuate stereotypes or behavior that negatively influences how we see people and therefore how we treat them. The higher the ratings, the greater the responsibility.”

On Luyendyk: “The featured bachelor needs to reflect a man who embodies this cultural awareness through his words and actions the way that Rachel did. If he doesn’t, the show threatens to characterize the women pursuing him as equally vapid. (Quick disclaimer: I don’t know Arie, so all I can judge is the character that the show’s editors create.) The Arie they present, especially following Rachel, comes across as shallow, bland, stiff and inarticulate. Every woman is ‘amazing,’ especially when he dumps them.”

On Luyendyk’s interest in 22-year-old Bekah: “Arie’s mind is blown by the most cliched observation to come out of every freshman dorm or stale fortune cookie. The fact that she’s 14 years younger and yet much more lucid and has a greater sense of humor than him only highlights his inability to engage.”

On why his eagerness to kiss is troubling: “It’s tone deaf to the times. Even though the women are all willing participants and know what they’re getting into, viewers see women clamoring over someone who seems more interested in jamming his tongue in their mouths than listening to the words coming out. Lauren S., whom he took out on a one-on-one date, apparently talked too much and instantly got the boot.”

On the wrestling bit from last week: “What were they thinking when they decided it would be a good idea to have the women wrestle each other? Even though it was framed as stagecraft wrestling, and dressed up as kitsch with a couple GLOW veterans, it still had the uncomfortable tinge of soft porn to it. The wonderful Netflix series GLOW is about women acknowledging the sexual fantasy elements but using it as a vehicle to self-empowerment. Here it seemed demeaning… The men did a wrestling bit on last season’s The Bachelorette, but the difference is that men do not face the same exploitative stereotypes and treatment in society, so what might be fun for men might be embarrassing and demeaning for women.”

You can read Abdul-Jabbar’s full essay here. Who knew a basketball player would be the person to set the world straight about The Bachelor?

John Legend Helping Chrissy Teigen With Her Maternity Leggings Is the Definition of True Love

If this isn’t true love, we don’t know what is: When Chrissy Teigen, who is pregnant with her second child, needed helping pulling up her maternity leggings because she was having trouble getting them over her baby bump, her husband John Legend didn’t think twice about stepping in.

Chrissy posted a video of the team effort to Snapchat; in it, you can hear a sniffling Teigen laugh, “ow…gentle!” as Legend hoists the black leggings up and over her stomach. It’s no less than what we’d expect from the couple, but it’s still pretty darn cute.

It looks like the leggings are part of Chrissy’s snow day outfit, as she also shared a snapshot of the finished product, standing (fully-dressed) in some freshly fallen snow. She’s proved to be all about that monochromatic, all-black pregnancy style this time around.

The model has been vocal in the past about her and John’s desire to expand their family, and back in September, Teigen spoke openly about how her husband helped her through her postpartum depression after she gave birth to baby Luna. “I got very, very lucky,” she said, elaborating that “Kids, friends and work are hard, but John is the easiest part of everything.” On dealing with his wife’s postpartum depression, Legend admitted that “It’s a struggle to be a good partner and help.”

But it looks like Legend has already found a pretty solid way to be supportive with baby No. 2 on the way—leggings, you’re no match for the Legends.

‘Wonder Woman’ Was Snubbed by the Oscars, and People Are Not Happy About It

Despite being the movie of summer 2017 and breaking several box office records, Wonder Woman somehow walked away from the Oscar nominations on Tuesday morning without a single nomination. That means Patty Jenkins will not be joining the embarrassingly small list of female directors nominated for Hollywood’s biggest award (though this year’s set of nominations does include one female director, Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird). It also means Gal Gadot is not among the nominated actresses for her portrayal of a warrior who has to go through an incredible emotional journey and still balance a sword in the back of her dress without the help of double-sided tape. Movies that did receive a nod, though, include Boss Baby. (#NoDisrespectToHansZimmer)

The snub has created some major frustration among Wonder Woman fans, who have done what frustrated moviegoers always do: taken to Twitter to vent. They were quick to point out even if you don’t believe the DC film should have been a contender for an acting or directing nod, it should have at least been a contender in something like Best Costume Design because again, a sword in a dress!

Wonder Woman might not have a shot at taking home a golden statue this March, but the franchise is still a leader in the industry for one very important reason. The highly anticipated sequel will be the first film to put the Producers Guild of America’s anti-sexual-harassment guidelines into effect. The guidelines will provide not only anti-harassment education but also a clear system to allow victims of harassment to report it.

Below, just a sampling of the response to Wonder Woman‘s snub:

Ashley Judd Details Sexual Harassment Ordeal at First Audition

Ashley Judd has been fighting back against gender bias and sexual harassment for a long time, she revealed during Univision Communications’ Behind the Camera: Where Diversity Begins panel at the Sundance Film Festival Sunday.

The actress, who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct last October, revealed that her very first Hollywood audition was a rude awakening to the power dynamics within the industry.

“Well, first of all, my first audition yielded a screen test and I was asked to take my shirt off,” she said. “It was between another woman and me, and I said that isn’t about our acting, that’s about evaluating a pair of breasts. And the answer was not ‘no’ but ‘hell no.'”

Judd’s pushback against sexual harassment in that instance is reminiscent of her interactions with Weinstein, which she detailed in the New York Times article that broke the news of decades of harassment claims against the producer.

In her alleged encounter with the since-disgraced media mogul, Judd recalled Weinstein asking her to watch him shower after she met up with him for what she assumed would be a breakfast meeting.

“He ignored my volley of no’s,” she told Diane Sawyer in an interview with Good Morning America in October. “Maybe he heard them as yes’s, maybe he heard them as maybe’s, maybe they turned him on.”

Judd was able to escape the hotel room, she said, because she bargained with Weinstein. “Finally, I just said, ‘When I win an Oscar in one of your movies, OK?'” she recalled. “He said, ‘Yeah, when you get nominated.’ I said, ‘No, when I win an Oscar.’ And then I just fled.”

At the panel Sunday, she acknowledged that she knew she was going to have to risk it all speaking out against Weinstein.

“I have to know the hill on which I’m willing to die,” she said. “And the hill on which I’m willing to die is equality, and if that means going to jail, being maligned, being defamed, having tremendous economic loss because I stood up to Harvey Weinstein – and it’s incalculable the amount of money I could have made that I didn’t – that’s the hill on which I’m willing to die.”

Meryl Streep Just Broke Her Own Oscars Record for the Most Acting Nominations

Typical Streep! Grande Dame of film acting Meryl Streep was just nominated for Best Actress for her role as Katharine Graham in Steven Spielberg’s The Post, a historical drama about The Washington Post battle against the Nixon administration to publish the Pentagon Papers. This is Streep’s 21st acting nomination, breaking her own record for most nominated actor ever. She’s well ahead of the game, since Jack Nicholson and Katharine Hepburn are tied for second place, with a measly 12 nominations apiece. While Streep is the most nominated actress in history, she isn’t actually the biggest winner; while she and a handful of others have three statuettes at home, Katharine Hepburn is the only person ever to take four for acting.

“I am honored beyond measure by this nomination for a film I love, a film that stands in defense of press freedom, and inclusion of women’s voices in the movement of history,” Streep said in a statement, per the Huffington Post following Tuesday’s nominations announcement. “Proud of the film, and all her filmmakers. Thank you from a full heart.”

The Post was also nominated for Best Picture, but the buzzy and timely drama failed to crack other categories. Still, there’s no denying that Streep is really good in it. Streep faces stiff competition for Best Actress, though. She’s up against Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), and Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird). McDormand is the clear favorite to win after this past weekend’s SAG Awards win.

But, undoubtedly, this latest nomination only further cements Streep as the greatest film actress of her time. She only very rarely makes a bad movie, and it’s never bad because of her. She can next be seen on the big screen in two highly anticipated musical sequels: Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! and Mary Poppins Returns. Viva La Streep!

The 2018 Oscar Nominations Saw Several Firsts for Females in Hollywood, Including Greta Gerwig and Mary J. Blige

According to all available statistics, the film industry is especially brutal to the careers of women, who are routinely in the minority when it comes to landing jobs behind the camera. The challenges faced by women of color are even greater. But after a year of change in the cultural conversation around how women are treated in Hollywood and other industries, there are at least a few bright spots to be found in this morning’s Oscar nominations.

For starters, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird has been nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay, making Gerwig the first female director to land a Best Director nomination for her directorial debut. The indie darling was already an established screenwriter, with credits on projects in which she also starred, like Frances Ha and Mistress America. But Lady Bird represented her first solo foray behind the camera (she previously co-directed 2008’s Nights and Weekends with Joe Swanberg). In addition to breaking this particular barrier, Gerwig is now in the teeny tiny club of five women ever nominated for the prize. She joins a handful of other luminaries like Jane Campion and Sofia Coppola. (The club really ought to have included Dee Rees and Patty Jenkins this year, sigh.) Best Director has been won by a woman only once, in 2010 when Kathryn Bigelow took home the Oscar for The Hurt Locker.

Another crack in the glass ceiling comes from Rachel Morrison, who just became the first and only women ever nominated for Best Cinematography, for her work on Dee Rees’s Mudbound. Yes, you read that right, after 90 years, there is finally one woman nominated in this category. Also nominated for her work in Mudbound is Mary J. Blige, who just became the first women ever to be nominated for Best Supporting Actress for a performance in a film directed by a woman of color, as well as the first woman to be nominated for Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Song in the same year.

Here’s hoping these incredibly talented women go home with some hardware next month.

2018 Is Going to Be a Great Year for Women in Movies

10 Creep-Free Movies to Root for This Awards Season

Only Tiffany Haddish Can Make the Oscar Nominations Entertaining

This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 2018 Oscars. This is typically a fairly dry affair in which two actors wake up very early in Los Angeles to read the names aloud to a small room of journalists. The networks usually cut into their morning shows for the big acting and directing nominees, after which we all start discussing who got snubbed and who the favorites are. End of story. But not today. Today, national treasure and The Last Black Unicorn author Tiffany Haddish accomplished the impossible: She made the Oscar nominations interesting, furthering my deep belief that she deserved an Oscar nomination for her breakout role in Girls Trip. Oh, and Andy Serkis was also there.

From the first set of nominees—for the scintillating category of production design—Haddish was out there being Haddish. “Do you think they could install a steam shower in my house? Because I need one,” she commented about the group. That’s when we knew it was on. Over the course of the next 20 minutes or so, she made me—and the audience present for the announcement—giggle out loud more than once, something that’s never happened before. She is truly magic. How dare the Academy not fully recognize this fact? It’s almost like they knew they messed up in not nominating, so they asked her to host this morning.

From mispronouncing names with unprecedented charm to incredible facial expressions to doing some of her signature dance moves (to celebrate the nomination for War for the Planet of the Apes for Visual Effects, no less), Haddish was an utter delight from start to finish. Special shout-out to every which way she said “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” throughout the show—each its own unique treat.

Here, more of her best moments:

On Dunkirk (my personal winner for best use of sweaters on film):
“I gotta see this Dunkirk. It seems like a lot of people like it.”

On the live action shorts:
“The last category proves that length doesn’t matter….mmmmm.”

On the documentary short nominees:
“All these titles make a woman from an urban area very uncomfortable.” Those titles: “Edith + Eddie”, “Heaven Is a Traffic Jam on the 405”, “Heroin(e)”, “Knife Fight”, and “Traffic Stop.”

On Get Out‘s Daniel Kaluuya and his name, which she had trouble pronouncing:
“He know his name.”

On what could go wrong announcing the best picture noms:
“Oh, you don’t know me that well. You don’t know me at all.”

Twitter was rightly amused.

By once again being unabashedly herself, perhaps the thing I love most about her, Tiffany Haddish has proved that she can literally work any room with her talents. We should be giving her all the awards, an Oscar included.

Watch and see for yourself below:
