The very last episode of NBC's award-winning drama had the tall task of closing the loop on the TV family we've all come to adore, while celebrating Rebecca's life and looking ahead to the future. Simply titled "Us," the final hour was split among two periods of the Pearsons' lives -- a lazy weekend with Jack, Rebecca and a young Big Three and the day of Rebecca's memorial service.
Saying goodbye to the long-running NBC drama seemed to be what was hardest for fans, when they took to Twitter to bid farewell to the series after six seasons.
Some fans were split on the series' bittersweet sendoff, wondering if they missed something along the way.
"#ThisIsUs so disappointed. Maybe I missed something … I didn’t get anything out of it. Ugggg," one viewer tweeted, while another wrote, "This replay of pasted-together cuts from past episodes was the worst series finale I’ve ever seen. Last week’s episode would have been a far better 'This Is Us' finale.
One thing they could all agree on, is how much love they have for This Is Us and the Pearson family.
Thank you @NBCThisisUs for the greatest television show of all time. So many laughs, smiles and tears. So many moments that anyone could relate to. A show for all of humanity. Feel like a part of me is gone. You will truly be missed #ThisIsUsFinale
This Is Us. What an ending. What a show, so true to life. “Can I tell you guys my nightmare? We drift. We drift....” “.if you drifted, we’d drift right after you.” The writers, producers and actors deserve ALL of the awards. #thisisus#thiswasus#preventthedrift#wearefamily
ET spoke to the cast on Sunday, where Mandy Moore called the finale "poetic" and more uplifting than one might expect
"It's a bit more of a hug. There’s some joy and levity that maybe haven’t been as present for the last couple of episodes," she said of the swan song. "I hope it makes [viewers] feel good. I hope that it inspires them to be the best version of themselves and I think that’s what our show always inspired to be -- a template for how to live life to the fullest."
