The first time this popular NBC drama aired and took the internet by storm was in 2016. Curated by Dan Fogleman, the plot covers the Pearson siblings’ lives while also presenting their parents’ narrative in flashbacks. The program has a reputation for being a roller-coaster of emotions. With the completion of its sixth season, the program is now ready to bid farewell to its devoted audience.
Any additional sobbing you hear is most likely coming from the network since the show is a critical and ratings hit for them. However, as they say, all good things must come to an end, and this show is no exception.
What did You Miss Watching in S6 Episode 5: A Recap
The episode begins with a flashback sequence where we see a small Kate learning piano under her mother’s assistance, and Jack video records it. Cut to a Kate in her teenage getting ready to go out. She comes into the living room to a Rebecca and Miguel watching television on the couch. After Kate leaves, Miguel turns to Rebecca and suggests that they should try speed dating, where they go on 15 dates, 15 minutes at a time.
He doesn’t want her to spend the rest of her life sitting with him on the couch watching Television. Cut to the present where Rebecca is helping Kate out while Toby is at work. While Rebecca is feeding Hailey, Kate receives a call from Toby enquiring how things are going. He then mentions getting invited by his boss on his yacht to watch a game the following day.

She wanted to show the kids the zoo for the first time. Kevin complies.
Randall comes home from lunch. He was really excited to spend the weekend in a great way with his wife. Beth tells Malik was in town for a day, and Deja wanted them to make lunch so the two of them could meet and get acquainted. Beth half expects that Deja probably wants to adopt Malik’s child.
