The tears continue to flow for This Is Us fans as the show heads into its series finale. In the penultimate episode of the season, viewers said goodbye to Rebecca Pearson (Mandy Moore) with an emotional look back at her life. Naturally, it prompted fans to express their sadness over the episode via social media.

As they traveled through the train's carriages, Rebecca got to chat with various loved ones including her late husband, Miguel (Jon Huertas). Her journey culminated with her getting into bed alongside her first husband, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia).

Cue the Tears
The moment Rebecca passed away was so subtle yet so beautifully written. Randall said "You tell him hey" then Randall feels she's gone, and when she see Jack she says "Hey", confirming the fact that it was indeed the last thing she heard while she was alive. #ThisIsUsFinalChapter pic.twitter.com/acgXdrdEGV— Cecilia.
