We don’t know a lot about Miguel and Rebecca’s relationship over the years. After Jack’s death, Miguel was there to help Rebecca and the children. But at some point, the friendship turned into something more. It has been previously stated that Rebecca’s marriage to Miguel is very different from what she experienced with Jack. During a recent episode, Rebecca thanked her husband for everything, including handling “the complexity of their marriage.” It was also teased that both of them deal with Jack’s death. However, each handles it in different ways.

As for when fans can expect to see the backstory of the couple, it won’t be this season. There is a reason for this. Fogelman told Glamour that there is a plan for telling the couple’s story. This Is Us season 5 spoilers reveal that it will actually be part of a bigger story. Of course, we will also find out how their relationship affects all the other story branches of the series. More recently, co-executive producer and writer Vera Herbert clarified to Entertainment Weekly that Miguel and Rebecca’s history will be explained in season 6.
“I think it’s probably more likely going to be next season, because it’s the thing that when we dive into it, we really want to have the room to explore it. But it’s definitely coming — and it’s a thing we talk about a lot.”
