Fans of NBC’s This Is Us don’t want to see the series end. The This Is Us Season 6 finale is coming soon, and after Miguel’s death in episode 15, we’re not prepared for Rebecca’s inevitable end. Recently, Jack Pearson actor Milo Ventimiglia took to his Instagram Stories to share his final thoughts after filming the finale, too.

After episode 15, “Miguel,” there are only two episodes left until the This Is Us Season 6 finale. This Is Us Season 6 Episode 16, titled “Family Meeting,” airs on May 10, episode 17, “The Train,” airs on May 17, and the finale, “Us,” airs on May 24.

The preview for “Family Meeting” shows the Big Three coming together to decide what happens next for Rebecca. With Miguel’s death affecting the entire family, Kate, Randall, and Kevin have a decision to make. Who will become Rebecca’s caretaker moving forward?

As for “The Train,” fans suspect Rebecca dies during this episode. Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz both had visceral reactions to the script, indicating something major occurs. Finally, “Us,” the finale, likely contains a montage of how the Pearsons moved on from Rebecca’s death and what the future generations are up to.

Milo Ventimiglia shares his final thoughts after filming the finale on Instagram

Actor Milo Ventimiglia plays the beloved Jack Pearson. He died much earlier in the show, but he remains in flashbacks with Rebecca. Most recently, in episode 15, Jack and Miguel connected in the past when Jack needed to purchase a suit and Miguel let him have one for free.

It looks like Ventimiglia will make an appearance in the This Is Us Season 6 finale. On May 3, 2022, he posted to his Instagram Stories showing him filming with Mandy Moore and the rest of the crew. He also noted it was the final night of filming, and he had special words for the fans of the series.

“So, that’s it,” he tells his phone camera alone outside at night. Ventimiglia seems to have just finished filming the finale, as he’s in a parking lot. “That is a wrap on season 6. That is a wrap for the whole series of This Is Us. Thank you for being a part of the journey. Thank you for being around for it all. Hope you’ve all enjoyed it. See you guys on the next one.”

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 Episode 15: How Jack Really Feels About Miguel and Rebecca’s Romance

While Jack died long ago, it looks like fans will see him during the This Is Us Season 6 finale. Back in March 2022, Milo Ventimiglia spoke to Variety about the possibility of seeing Jack more in the show toward the end.

“I think toward the end, we’re going to see all the sides of Jack,” he said. “I think we’re going to understand who he was to his kids, understand who he was to his wife. The show was so front-heavy with Jack. Now, we’ve really invested in the stories of the kids and Rebecca. I think that’s where it’s ultimately leading, those loops closing. We already know Jack. He’ll be there, he’ll be around.”

With Rebecca’s upcoming death and Jack already dead, fans are hopeful the two will meet again in the afterlife.

This Is Us Season 6 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
