This Is Us Series Finale Recap.

Silly! If you’ve been watching This Is Us for the past six seasons, you already know the answer:

The Pearsons’ story will never end! After all, as Kevin told us in Season 1, “I think that’s maybe the point of the whole thing. There’s no dying. There’s no you, or me, or them… it’s just us.

And this sloppy, wild, colorful, magical thing that has no beginning, no end, that’s right here? I think it’s us.

The NBC drama’s series finale serves as a quiet epilogue to its gorgeous penultimate episode, “The Train,” which witnessed the death of Pearson matriarch Rebecca.

Together, the two installments serve as a very fitting send-off for a show that stayed true to itself throughout its six-season run.

And without further ado, let’s review what happens in Us. (And make sure to check out our post mortem chat with series creator Dan Fogelman, as well as a breakdown of the show’s final flash-forward.)

In a flashback, Rebecca is sleeping on a Saturday morning, and Jack is watching her. He notices a scar under her eyebrow that he’s never seen before;

she says she’s had it since she was a child, and it tends to become more prominent when she’s had some sun.

She sleepily tells him about how, when she was little, her father used to take her to a playground and push her on the swings.

One day, his watch accidentally made contact with her face as she turned her head, leaving the cut that would become the scar.

She muses that being pushed in that swing by her dad “was my favorite thing in the entire world,” but that she often found it hard to be present,

Because she’d get preoccupied about when they’d have to stop and go home.

I really wish that I had spent more time appreciating it when it was all happening rather than worrying about when it would end, she says softly.
