Only one episode left!
Did you watch the second to last episode? What did you think?

I am going to miss those characters! I watched the most recent episode and while it was sad (obviously!) I really like how they portrayed Rebecca’s journey as she passed away.

I really enjoyed it. Mandy Moore just knocks it out of the park every week. The other characters are good, but she just seems to be able to channel Rebecca at every age. Will be sorry the show is over after next week.

I also liked the way they showed her passing. Even though it was sad, it was a wonderful way to do it. I liked William's quote toward the end.

NBC would be crazy not to do some “spin offs”. I already have some shows in mind.

Going to miss this show so much. Mandy Moore described the next to last episode as sad and the last episode she said is going to be like a big hug. (She said all this on Jimmy Falon a few days ago)

I really enjoyed it. I just started watching this show this year, and thinks it's really well done.

I'm glad they are ending it and hope there are no spin offs. Don't hate me, haha. I just think that good things tend to be over done and then they just get ruined. Let something good end while it's still amazing.

I loved the train, that would be a nice way to leave this world and William was a great choice for guide. Also Mandy Moore looked gorgeous, that dress was amazing! But i won’t be watching any spin-offs, 6 years of this family’s drama is enough for me.

I loved how the show gave a beautiful ending to Rebecca’s life. It was really a celebration of a full life. Having William guide her was perfect.
I was reading that some of scenes on the train were filmed a couple of years ago. The creator wanted to film the younger kids with their adult characters. How brilliant!

It was really good. I, too, really liked the train trip and how they portrayed that final journey. It was so well done.

I completely agree!

I loved seeing the adults/younger characters together, and I loved that William was the guide. It was very satisfying and yet still a little hard to watch right now.

I LOVED the train metaphor! Actually, I thought that was the series finale until they showed scenes for next week! I bawled like a baby, of course!

The writing for this show has been amazing. I had tears in my eyes as I watched the latest episode. This series has played out like a beautiful novel.

Such a great episode. They are doing a fantastic job wrapping it up. I'm sad to see it go, but it was time.

I thought it was well done, although sad, of course. I was sad when they announced this would be the last season, but now I'm thinking that was the right choice. They didn't let it "go bad." I find myself ready for it to wrap up.

It was so good!! Yes, very well written and acted!

I'm so sad to see the show end, and I'm going to miss the characters so much. I feel like I've been a part of their lives for so very long (since the first season). I'm happy they're doing such a great job with closing it out. Somehow it makes it easier to let it end.
