Plus, Milo Ventimiglia teases Jack's time in Vietnam in Season 3.

In the video, fans can see as Mandy Moore, Ventimiglia, and Niles Fitch (who plays teenage Randall) move step-by-step through one of the scenes. Viewers also catch a glimpse at Ventimiglia’s stunt double. As the rehearsal continues, Jack tells Randall and Rebecca to block smoke from coming under the door with a towel as he heads out to save his “Katie Girl” from the flames.

Though the rehearsal it’s much more light-hearted than the finished product, it still gives us flashes to that harrowing scene of the Pearson home engulfed in flames. Don’t worry if you find yourself getting teary-eyed, since this isn’t new when it comes to This Is Us!
