When Jack Dies in the Hospital
We finally find out how the Pearson patriarch dies in the devastating episode "Super Bowl Sunday," and it's incredibly heartbreaking. After a faulty slow cooker causes the Pearson family home to go up in flames, Jack manages to save Rebecca, Randall, and Kate from the house fire, but he goes back in to save Kate's dog. Though he manages to make it out unscathed, Jack suffers from second-degree burns and smoke inhalation from the fire. Just when it seems like everything might be OK, Jack passes away in the hospital from a widowmaker heart attack. The scene when Rebecca sees Jack lying lifeless on the bed will stick with us forever.
