Here's the evidence: 1) Kate gets really freaked out while on a plane, and 2) we see Kevin destroy all of his model planes at some point in his childhood. Plus, 3) Randall works in New York City, and he and his mom live in a nearby suburb, which means the family likely grew up there, and Daddy Jack could've gotten a city job at some point.

Like the fact that the Big Three appear to be teenagers at the time of the funeral, but based off the timeline of the pilot, they would've turned 21 in 2001. So the dates there aren't adding up. Plus, Kate mentions she watched the 2006 Super Bowl with her dad...unless she was lying or meant his ashes?

  1. So, is this theory on to something? Did Jack die in the Sept. 11 attacks?
