During Deadline‘s Emmy’s For Your Consideration event on Tuesday, those in attendance were lucky enough to screen a sneak peek from the first episode of season three. The scene involved Jack and Rebecca and a big first for the two — their very first date.
According to the website, Jack and Rebecca go on an “awkward first date,” but it also sounds like an extremely sweet one because, well, that’s what happens when Jack Pearson is involved.
They go to a carnival and, as a Vietnam vet who just returned home, Jack doesn’t have much money. He only has $9 to be exact. So rather than using his money to buy an umbrella (because, yes, it’s raining) he chooses to spend his money on Rebecca. “You don’t bring a girl to a carnival and not let her play any games,” he says to her in the scene, per Deadline. Of course, he ends up driving her home — in the pouring rain. Really, who cares about the umbrella when Jack delivers a romantic line like that, right?
Even Rebecca couldn’t resist Jack and his genuine sweetness because, as Deadline reports, she ends up kissing him.
Fans have already seen a lot of firsts for Jack and Rebecca, including when they first met, as shown in this video.
