Miguel’s life path was filled with different things, but love and Rebecca were the only two things that always stayed in his life
While the last two episodes of This Is Us Season 6 were about Kate’s wedding and Kevin’s search for his true love, one thing that really worried us was Miguel’s health issues. So today’s episode gave us a very good insight into Miguel’s life. From childhood to meeting Rebecca (Mandy Moore), Miguel has faced many difficulties in his life. Coming to the US is always difficult, but his family came here and started life here.
He did all the hard work and became successful. He has a good home, a great car and also a beautiful girlfriend named Shelly. We also see that Rebecca never liked Miguel (Jon Huertas) at first because she thought he was trying to be funny all the time. Over time, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), Rebecca and Miguel became good friends. Miguel meets Shelly at a restaurant and a few months later they become engaged. But soon after the marriage, their relationship turned sour and they started fighting.
ON THE SUBJECT OF MATCHING ITEMS
This Is Us season 6 episode 14: Did Kevin sleep with anyone at Kate’s wedding?
This Is Us Season 6 Episode 13: Rebecca’s health problems show the end is near
In one of the scenes we learn that Miguel got a new hip, but a small incident changed everything. Rebecca got up in the middle of the night and started dancing in the snow. She called Miguel to a dance and he put a coat on her to bring her inside. He fell and injured his knee.
The whole episode was so heartwarming. We never knew those little details about how certain things also affected Miguel’s life, especially when he came back into Rebecca’s life. He had to face Kevin’s rejection and the kids took the time to even consider him their stepfather. But he never left Rebecca’s side and that makes him a good person, a good husband and a good father too.
Jon Huertas is absolutely gorgeous in this episode and he portrayed every emotion with great precision. Life is all about being with the people you love and Miguel showed us what true love really looks like. Even shortly before his death, he does not leave Rebecca’s side and always gets up at 6:45 a.m. to help her out of bed. These are little things that make a relationship so important and lovable.
All in all, Miguel lived his life to the fullest. Yes, he had difficulties, but he also had amazing moments and his life should be celebrated, not mourned.
Miguel and Rebecca, forever.
This Is Us Season 6 returns to NBC every Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. EST with a new episode.
