The finale follows their funeral, a dream sequence with a younger Rebecca and Jack on board a train, and a flashback to a Saturday with the big three before they were teenagers.

We join the three siblings as they sit on the steps of their family cottage trying to end the death of their parents.

Randall prepares to be a grandfather, Kate worries the family is drifting apart, and they sing their famous big threesome.

In the dream sequence, Rebecca explains to Jack that she wanted to do so much with her children.

Jack assures her, “You will. It’s hard to explain, but you’ll do all these things to them. You will be there.”

The flashback shows the siblings, just before they are teenagers, enjoying a lazy weekend at home with their parents.

The family pins the donkey’s tail, and we’re rewarded with another flashback where Rebecca and Jack buy it when the big three are babies because it has kids like them on the cover.

Before purchasing the game, Rebecca says, “When the world throws something so obvious at you, you don’t just let it go. You could miss something very important.”

The final shot of the episode is a young riot looking up at his father, Jack.

Speaking to Variety about the show’s finale, creator Dan Fogelman said, “I knew I wanted to end up with the feeling of kids looking at their parents and embracing something that they’re going to carry into their lives.”

When was the last episode filmed?

More than half of the scenes seen in the final episode of This Is Us were actually filmed years before.

During a panel at the premiere, Fogelman explained, “We shot that [flashback in the] episode years ago, primarily to capture it in a moment that would make it feel nostalgic to us and the audience.

He also confirmed to Deadline that there was unscripted footage that wasn’t edited.

Fogelman said, “I did stuff that we barely wrote a script for, like Jack spinning pancakes and making pancakes and then shooting pancakes and making pancakes with Randall, his much younger family in the old house.

“It was so charming and addressed the issue at the end of the episode – that’s what the whole series was about – that you carry this stuff with you without even thinking about it.”

He added, “I thought we talked about it better at the end of the episode and that’s why I didn’t keep it, but I was so charming and the kids are so young.

“And I think I’ll put it online at some point.”

When will This Is Us season 6 episode 18 air in the UK?

The This Is Us finale airs May 26 in the UK.

In the UK, episodes air two days after their US release.
