“This Is Us”: the last farewell to a series that brought emotions to the surface

The story of “This Is Us” begins with the union between Rebecca and Jack. (Star +)

All good stories come to an end and Pearson’s story is no exception. We won’t see them again big three on stage because this Thursday, May 26, the last episode will be broadcast for all of Latin America on Star+. This drama series that captured the hearts of all fans around the world and moved and excited us to the extreme, has already closed.

With six seasons under his belt, It’s us introduced us to a family we’ve come to love: the Pearsons. Composed by the marriage of Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia), Rebecca (mandy moore) and their children Kate (Chrissy Metz), Randall (Sterling K Brown) and Kevin (Justin Hurley), all baptized by the father of the family as the Big Three, the series acquaints us in detail with each of the central characters. Any follower of this drama knew how each of them would react in different situations. Each of the fans who recognized themselves in each episode with one of them reached this extreme of knowledge.

Because each of the followers was sometimes a little Jack, Rebecca or one of the children. Every drama they went through, as did some viewers who shed tears a little for the story and a little for the chords it touched in everyone’s hearts.

(SPOILER WARNING)

The last two episodes were perhaps the most emotional of the series. Choosing these two is a very difficult task since it’s us was full of episodes full of drama and emotion (the cabin episode where the three adult brothers find a recording of their father Jack may be another one to add). the protagonist was mandy moore, who has had an impressive evolution throughout the six seasons as an actress. Rebecca is at the worst point of her illness (Alzheimer’s) and she is already beginning to have major oversights and shortcomings. “She’s not our mom, Kev. Our mom was magic.”Randall says to his brother as one of the most painful thoughts ever.

This woman with so much sweetness, so strong and present in the life of each of her children at all stages of their life, is on the verge of definitive death. And with that it goes out It’s us, Well, despite the fact that the series was also Jack and the boys, we realized that without Rebecca the story wouldn’t have been able to move forward.

We thus arrive at the penultimate episode entitled “The Train”, where an exquisite metaphor was created. This distinguished train that little Rebecca dreamed of with her father, is the one that picks her up for her last trip. Like a stage between life and death, Mama Pearson agonizes in a bed at home with her whole family gathered to say goodbye. Meanwhile, a gorgeous Rebecca walks through the carriages and sees fragments of her life. “I’m waiting for someone” Becca tells Randall’s biological father who asks her to escort him to another car. It’s just that Rebecca won’t decide to die until her daughter arrives from London to say goodbye. She is waiting for him.

The arrival of Kate is the last card played by this mother who loved her children so much, who gave them all the love in the world, who was able to rebuild herself after the death of her husband. His life has ended and it’s time to turn the page.

And if there’s anyone to thank for this series, it’s Dan Fogelmann, the creator of this jewel which was It’s us. And it’s fitting that we speak in the past tense because now we have to start saying goodbye forever, while saving one last tear for the end and a handkerchief to contain it when we see “The End” on the screen.
