    We've barely recovered from William's fatal trip to Memphis on "This Is Us," but as the stars of the NBC hit tell it, fans better buckle up because the hits keep coming.

    With only two episodes left go before season one is over, Milo Ventimiglia and his castmates are warning that the season finale is going to leave fans shaken in ways we may not quite have expected.

    "I really hope that people have recovered from William's passing. I know I barely have," Papa Pearson told E! News. "But we've started to see the cracks of a relationship, a 20-plus year relationship, appear, and we know we're going into uncharted territory with this once bright-eyed, loving couple that now, 20 years later, are trying to stand on their own individual feet, not collective for the family...We're going down a path and on a road that is going to scare a lot of people with regards to the sanctity of the relationship of Jack and Rebecca."

    Justin Hartley, who stars as Jack's grown son Kevin, echoed his TV dad's words, while throwing a new word into the mix.  "I can tell you hold on tight. It's intense. It's intense, man. It gets heavy. Very heavy," he teased. "This is a different kind of heavy. It's a different kind of heavy. It's gripping, but it's kind of a dangerous episode. Dangerous is a good word. I don't know if that's a good word now that I think about it. I'm going to use it anyway."

    "This Is Us" airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
