This Is Us final season: A quick glimpse of each moment you’ve loved about the show

It's never easy to say goodbye to a show with which you've laughed and grieved for years. This Is Us is one of those shows that will live on in our hearts long after the Pearsons have left us on screen. The Pearsons took us on a touching journey through their lives throughout six seasons, encouraging us to keep our loved ones close. Take a trip down memory lane by remembering some classic moments that have left an everlasting imprint on our minds now that the program has reached its final season, which fans can watch on Disney+ Hotstar.

We’re going to be OK.

After Jack's death, Rebecca gathers the children under Jack's favorite tree and exhibits her maternal fortitude, causing a torrent of tears. Her courage is brilliantly shown in those few moments, telling Kevin and Randall that they didn't need to steal Jack's position and assuring Kate that it wasn't her fault that her father raced back in for the dog. "We're going to be OK, babe," she says quietly. "I promise you, we're going to be OK." It is her sincere promise to Jack and us that no matter how far we progress, we will never forget what we've loved and lost.

"Something resembling lemonade"

Dr. K was an unofficial part of the Pearson family, having witnessed some of their most significant life events. He delivered Rebecca's twins or triplets for the first time. While Rebecca recovers in the next room, Dr. K informs Jack, who is understandably shaken. "I like to think that maybe one day you'll be an old man like me, talking to a younger man's ear off, explaining to him how you took the sourest lemon that life has to offer and turned it into something resembling lemonade," he says.

Toby and Kate getting married

There was no doubt that Kate and Toby's wedding would be a tearjerker. It was a tear-jerking moment for all of us that Kate, who is known for being a daddy's girl, was going to have to go down the aisle without her father on the happiest day of her life. Thankfully, even if it was in a flashback, the show was able to situate Jack there. In a flashback, we witness her walk down the aisle with her siblings. "I'll get to walk you down the aisle, and I may even cry a little," Jack says in a flashback.

Beth’s backstory

In Season 3, Episode 13, titled "Our Little Island Girl," we discover more about Beth and her past. There isn't a single thing about that episode that we dislike. Her parents' relationships, her never-ending efforts to pursue a profession in dancing, her father's death, running into Randall, and then visiting a dance studio—her background has shaped who she is now. The episode centers on Beth and gives us a unique glimpse into her life, making it one of our favorites.

Randall's teacher's parental participation in his child's life disturbs Jack.

Seeing the disparities between yourself and your child is incredibly painful. Because he isn't exactly like Randall, Jack knows that he can't be everything to him. When he accepts this and moves forward, he decides to teach Randall how to connect with those who can provide him with what he requires and what Jack cannot. It emphasizes Jack's devotion to his children and the lengths to which he will go to protect them. It also emphasizes how even a perfect entity like Jack has flaws. This distinct nuance adds to his credibility and relatability.

Super Bowl Sunday

This episode was a turning point in the series, as it revealed how the Pearson family came to be the way they are. In this chapter, we dive into the mystery surrounding Jack and the burning house. After Super Bowl XXXII, Jack notices that the house is on fire and flees the scene. However, when he sees Kate's dog, Louie, trapped inside the house, he rushes to retrieve him as well as other family heirlooms. While she is away signing a few consent forms at the hospital for his care, he has a sudden and deadly heart attack.
