The sixth and final season of NBC’s extraordinarily amazing drama ‘This Is Us’ started last week and just like always, it was an emotional ride. The first episode saw Rebecca (Mandy Moore) reminiscing about the train ride she took with her father when she was young, but gets confused when she is not able to remember some details.

On the other hand, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) bailed out the suspect and called him to meet at the shelter. Randall did this because he wanted to do something for young people who get addicted to drugs and do wrong things. A sweet moment between Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) and Randall takes place in which she tells that he is the “real thing”. But the main focus was on Rebecca and the test results. When the results arrived, she got to know that the plaques were building up in her brain.

So, a lot of people thought that Episode 2 will be all about Rebecca dealing with Alzheimer’s. Yes, it was one of the main storylines during the episode, but the entire episode was mainly focused on two storylines that were sweet, emotional, and made us teary-eyed. In the latest episode of ‘This Is Us’ Season 6, we see Rebecca, Miguel (Jon Huertas), and Nicky (Griffin Dunne) going on a road trip to see Sally, Nicky’s long-lost love. They all stop at an antique shop where Nicky sees a camera and is unable to buy it because it’s too expensive. He feels really sad and says that he wants to go home because he hasn’t even taken Sally’s permission to visit her and doesn’t even if they’ll meet the real Sally.

He just found her on Facebook. Rebecca and Miguel say that they are going to go there and meet her. They reach the place and Nicky rings the doorbell. Fortunately, it is Sally and she immediately recognizes him. Nicky and Sally talk to each other over dinner and remember the fun they used to have. He even mentions having sex with her while sitting next to Sally’s husband. Sally says that now she can remember everything and was scared if she had Alzheimer’s. Rebecca takes a moment and reveals that she really has Alzheimer’s and no amount of medication will be able to treat her. They all share about how they worry about small things and how important they are to them.

Nicky shares that he remembers everything about Sally and doesn’t regret that because it got him through, making him believe that something good might happen to him. He also believes that this is his most awkward meal of all time.

Sally shares that she regrets buying the satellite dish due to which she and her husband don’t talk properly and do things separately. Her husband tells her she shouldn’t “air her laundry” in front of strangers, she says Nicky is not a stranger. As they get ready to leave, Nicky takes a photo of Sally and says we’ll meet again in 50 years. On the other hand, Rebecca and Miguel are in the car when Rebecca tells him that he didn’t get the best version of her and the upcoming days are going to be challenging for him.

He says in sickness and in health. Nicky joins them as they leave Sally’s house.
Elsewhere, Deja and Malik’s romance is blooming as well. They attend a party together and when they reach home, they spend some quality time with each other. Deja (Lyric Ross) tells Malik (Asante Blackk) that she wants to feel like this forever as they kiss each other. Then we see Deja, she is on a bus, heading back home, she looks at a phone of her and Malik on her phone and then her dad texts her and asks how breakfast at Tiffany’s was, she says life-changing.
