The finale of “This Is Us” which was titled “Moonshadow” provided answers to some questions which we have been waiting for a long time but it threw up some new issues. The season 1 did not turn out to be the cliffhanger which many had expected it to be.

Viewers can expect more drama, emotions and love in the offing in the coming Season 2 and Season 3 of the serial though NBC is yet to announce the dates when it will be telecast. “This is Us” can be termed as fresh, honest and probing and sometimes provocative. The lives of the characters criss-cross and one another and increasingly start to affect the lives of one another in a curious way.

The first season of “This Is Us” started by telling that the head of the family, Jack, played by Milo Ventimiglia is dead even before their kids have grown up. The happenings in between were served in tit bits, and viewers were left trying to put the piece together the complete story. Each episode dropped a hint which made viewers think again.

Story leaves space for future seasons

We don’t know how Jack died and the viewers will be left with mulling over every possibility till the show returns this fall. Critics opined that the Finale as one which will answer questions and also produce new ones. It does not reveal much but changes everything in varying degrees.

The episode mainly focused on the life of Jack and Rebecca, explaining how they met and the happenings in the intervening years were advanced to the moment the two decide to separate.

Viewers now know that Jack had almost robbed a club and came face to face with his future wife.

Ending a bit jarring for comfort

The emotional eruption between Pearson parents came to a rude halt with Jack leaving his home, and ironical enough goes to live with Rebecca’s future husband, Jon.

It was an intensely polarizing end to the saga and has been described as sour and galling by prominent TV critics.

"This Is Us" starring Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore, premiered on September 20, 2016, in the U.S. on NBC.
