Plot Of Season 6, Episode 18 Of This Is Us
Rebecca’s final moments in the series were explored in this episode.
The Pearson family gathers to Rebecca’s bedside while she is dreaming of her final hours on a train, where she encounters some of her life’s most important characters.
Other sequences in the episode portray a new family, the Brooks, who have a tragic car accident in the opening scene and later scenes follow their youngest son, Marcus, who grows up to be an aspiring scientist.
Marcus was undergoing surgery at the same time as Jack Pearson suffered a fatal heart attack, implying that if Marcus wasn’t in the hospital, a trauma surgeon might have been able to rescue Jack.
However, when adult Marcus proceeds to develop a medicine to help battle Alzheimer’s disease, the devastating revelation is given a new layer.
Rebecca reunites with Jack on her strange train as she dies, bringing the episode and Rebecca’s amazing life to a close. Bring on the tears.
