The next episode which has a lot of emotional whoppers was not seen by Ventimiglia as he was not present.
Ventimiglia commenting on the Pearsons said he does not worry about the Pearsons.

I, much like Jack, don't worry about the Pearsons at all. They are a strong family and that's one thing Jack has given them — strength.
