Keeping the timeline of This Is Us straight can feel like an overwhelming task as the mythology and scope of the Pearson family's story continue to expand into the past, present, and future. (Old Lady Witch Rebecca is truly haunting.) Who has time to think about dates when there is so much crying to be done? Well, we do! As the show fills in Pearson-family milestones, Vulture will sort the timeline-jumping drama out for you in a chronological fashion. Here is a list of the major This Is Us moments, covering the events of the series up through the end of season five — so, yes, there are spoilers.

Gastric bypass surgery, it is!

Randall forgives Rebecca. The Pearsons honor William's memory with a plethora of breakfast foods, balloons, and confetti, and a nice stroll through the neighborhood while wearing fedoras. During this walk, Rebecca stops her son to once again say how sorry she is that she kept William from him, denying Randall more time with his birth father. She did it because she was scared, but she knows how selfish that was. It was enough time to know William loved him, Randall tells her. And that's enough. This new peacefulness also seems to be in honor of William's memory.
Kevin has a second shot at opening night. The Back of an Egg 's opening night redux, and it is quite the success. Almost unbelievably, Ron Howard happens to be in the audience that night and he calls Kevin to offer him a part in his next movie. Too bad he just told Sophie that he realized he moved to New York City to be with her and that he won't mess this up a second time. Sounds like some drama is afoot!
Kate (almost) opens up about Jack's death. William's memorial brings on another swell of emotions for Kate regarding Jack's death.

And the most heartbreaking is with his dad: Kevin can't actually apologize to his dad, but he makes the best of it by going to The Tree to tell Jack that he's going to make him proud. It might not be the right tree, but the sentiment is very nice.

Somebody's getting married! It's Kate and Toby. The Ka-Toby wedding arrives, as coordinated by Kevin and Randall. They are delights. But before Kate can walk down the aisle at the family cabin in her gorgeous dress, she has something to do: She needs to let go of Jack, at least a little bit. She goes out into the woods and sits on the tree stump she used to share with her dad, and tells him she needs to make room for Toby. She finally spreads Jack's remaining ashes, and then Kevin and Randall walk her down the aisle. She isn't the only Pearson experiencing some catharsis, though: Rebecca and Kate discuss their issues head-on and have a misty-eyed makeup. Kevin uses his toast time to get himself, Kate, Randall, and Rebecca to finally release that deep breath is feels like they've been holding in since Jack died. Nice sentiment, but weird wedding toast.
Deja gets upset at the wedding. Even a conversation with Beth's very nice cousin Zoe about not hating the people who love you can't stop Deja from taking out her anger on Randall's car windshield. This does not bode well for the future.

Kevin really digs in during his stay in Bradford. He buys a fancy trailer so he can live next to Nicky while they await his hearing, and he promises Cassidy that he's going to help her get back together with her husband, Ryan (Nick Wechsler). Of course they end up sleeping together first, but he does make good on his promise eventually!
Tess has a panic attack. Beth teaches her husband and daughter that La Croix isn't just a refreshing beverage.
