As ever, the season finale left us with plenty of questions, all of which have been slowly wrapped up as the sixth instalment of this masterful show has played out, inevitably closing on a bittersweet note as Rebecca inevitably passes away from Alzhemier's. 

From Kate's surprising nuptials with her colleague, Phillip, to the question of whether Kevin will ever settle down following the wedding that never was to the mother of his children, Maddie. The previous season's final scene also alluded to big things happening for City Counsellor Randall, who appears in a profile in the New Yorker as a 'Rising Star'.

Concluding in such a way that is reminiscent of the small, beautiful moments in life, This is Us has tackled plenty of difficult themes, including addiction, race, love, loss, and identity, all while weaving together multiple timelines across the family tree.
