Now that This Is Us has wrapped up its first season, we can look back in retrospect at the amazing moments and touching storylines the first 18 episodes brought us. Our vote for the most affecting plot of the season goes to the one that got a whole episode to itself: Memphis, where Randall took his dying biological father on a “bucket list” road trip back to his hometown. It was one of the more profoundly moving hours of television we’ve ever seen, and definitely one you should watch (or watch again, whatever the case may be). Ron Cephas Jones, who played Randall’s father, say he wasn’t prepared for the outpouring of emotion he got from the show’s fans after that episode aired.
