This Is Us Season 6 Episode 18 Official Promo
Take a look at the official promo of This Is Us Season 6 Episode 18 which was released on May 18, 2022, titled as same as the episode title, Us. Take a look at the promo below:
According to the promo, much of the footage will be familiar to viewers who have seen earlier episodes. NBC is treating the show’s finale with great caution, and for valid reasons. As we hope they don’t want any potential spoilers to be leaked and shared all over social media, ruining the storyline before fans get to see it for the first time and delve into the story that has captivated them for so long.
What to expect in This Is Us Season 6 Episode 18?
The episode is directed by Ken Olin and written by Dan Fogelman. The official synopsis of the episode states, ”The Big Three come to new understandings about life.” In This Is Us Season 6 Episode 18, viewers have anticipated that the episode will be a continuation of the previous episode as The Pearson family’s relationship is set to be reshaped in the finale, as they live out their lives without their matriarch, Rebecca, and must put all of their parents’ lessons to great effect.
Furthermore, this synopsis and promotional material provide viewers a taste of the plot, but not the full image that the show’s creators have developed as a screenplay. As a result, we have no idea what key facts or shocks will be revealed in the final episode, how the season will end, or what plots will arise to bring the series to a satisfying conclusion. As a result, we recommend that people wait and watch the episode to come out and form their own opinions.
Also, take a look at the exclusive interview of Mandy Moore as she talks about being on The Tonight Show right before New York City shut down due to the pandemic, her reaction to filming the final episodes of This Is Us, and what items she and Milo Ventimiglia took from the set. The interview gives viewers a great insight into the series finale episode and what the fans can expect from the ending and the characters of the series.

Take a look at the promo below:
The episode starts with the glimpses of a hospitalized patient in 1998 Kenneth Brooks, who is waiting to hear if his son Marcus will survive a car accident, is encouraged by Jack. While Jack is dying, Marcus is being saved by his doctor. Dr. Marcus Brooks is recognized for his contributions to Alzheimer’s treatment years later. The Pearsons assemble in 2032 to bid Rebecca farewell. Rebecca has inspired both Beth and Toby in their parenting. Annie expresses her gratitude to Rebecca for making her feel important. Deja informs Randall of her pregnancy, and the baby’s father, Malik, arrives at the house shortly after she texts him.
As the episode progresses we see that Kate is flying to England to advocate for education, but Rebecca is not expected to make it through the night. Randall and Kevin stay with Rebecca overnight, and when Kate arrives the next morning, she is still alive. “Tell him, ‘Hey,'” Randall says, thanking Rebecca for her parenting. Rebecca imagines herself on a luxurious train. She meets Dr. K and Miguel, led by William while listening to her family’s goodbyes over the loudspeaker. She enters the caboose only after Kate arrives, despite her aversion to doing so because she’s “waiting for someone.” “Hey,” she says as she lies down on a bed with Jack alongside her.
