— The death of Jack Pearson on NBC’s “This Is Us” television show has been expected since the show’s first season, but it finally happened on Super Sunday, Variety reported.
Spoiler alert: If you recorded the show and haven’t watched it yet, skip this article.
In the episode that aired Jan. 23, Pearson’s home catches fire when a faulty slow-cooker is left plugged in overnight. Viewers were left with the impression that Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) died in the fire, but in Sunday’s episode, which followed Super Bowl LII, he walked away from the blaze. Pearson appeared to be all right, but when he checks into a hospital because of smoke inhalation and second-degree burns on his hands, he dies of a heart attack, CNN reported.
Fans of the show flocked to Twitter to express their sadness at losing Pearson.
“It’s 5 a.m. and I’m ugly crying because of this show,” one fan tweeted.
“Everybody deserves to be loved by a Jack Pearson,” tweeted another.
“Who needs dumb boys to break your heart when you can watch #ThisIsUs.” tweeted a third person.
A Twitter spokesman said this week’s show received the most tweets since the series debuted, CNN reported.

Meanwhile, Markle sent her bridal bouquet to Westminster Abbey "to rest on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior," a tribute to those who died in World War I and other military conflicts, according to a press release.
"This is a tradition which was begun by HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, at her marriage to King George VI in memory of her brother Fergus who was killed in 1915 at the Battle of Loos during the First World War," the release said.

According to the New York Daily News, the 27-year-old model wore a forest green Dolce & Gabbana dress with a matching hat and veil.
Here's what people were saying:
The one that caught my attention during the #RoyalWedding was none other than Lady Kitty Spencer, the niece of Princess Diana. Pretty just like her aunt. I mean, she resembles her very much 😍. I'm dying....— Aaira (@AaliaBestari) May 19, 2018

Co-hosts Carla Hall, Michael Symon and Clinton Kelly addressed the audience with a statement read on-air on Tuesday.
“Yesterday, allegations of past improper behavior surfaced about our own Mario Batali, and ABC asked him to step away from the show while those allegations are reviewed,” Kelly said.
“We want you to know we take these matters very seriously and are committed to a safe work environment,” Symon said.
Hall closed out the statement, saying, “Our commitment to our viewers remains the same, to deliver the entertaining show that you’ve come to expect.”

In the wake of the allegations, Batali has stepped down from the day-to-day operations of his restaurants, but still remains the owner of many of the establishments. ABC said they asked Batali to step away from “The Chew” as they “review the allegations that have just recently come to (their) attention.”
Fellow celebrity chefs Anthony Bourdain and Tom Colicchio were quick to criticize Batali on Monday.

Multiple anonymous women alleged in a story by food-trade publication Eater New York that Batali had groped their breasts or buttocks, amid other allegations.
Batali apologized and pledged to try and “regain” the “respect and trust” of his fans, family and business associates.
“I apologize to the people I have mistreated and hurt,” Batali said. “Although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behavior described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted.
“That behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility and am deeply sorry for any pain, humiliation or discomfort I have caused to my peers, employees, customers, friends and family.”
Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group — which services about two dozen restaurants owned by Batali, Joe Bastianich and others — confirmed that Batali “will step away from the company's operations,” USA Today reported.
“We have asked Mario Batali to step away from ‘The Chew’ while we review the allegations that have just recently come to our attention,” ABC said in a statement. “ABC takes matters like this very seriously as we are committed to a safe work environment. While we are unaware of any type of inappropriate behavior involving him and anyone affiliated with the show, we will swiftly address any alleged violations of our standards of conduct.”
