Toby's heart attack

There is no doubt that Toby a total sweetheart, making Kate fall madly in love with him and everyone else just adore him. However, watching him progress on his health journey early in the season only to fall to the ground while having a heart attack not only crushed the table he landed on, but our hearts as well.

William was hard to love at first but soon after we learn more about him, he is hard not to love. His deep-rooted love for Randall is the best indication that we can trust him and allow ourselves to get invested in his life.

Although Kevin did not know he was recklessly driving with his nieces in the car, the fear that struck in the body of all witnesses was real. He had finally hit rock bottom, after all the heart break he had encountered. Although watching him get handcuffed was scary, it was the wakeup call he needed

6. Kevin skipping his opening night to comfort his brother

It is no secret that Kevin and Randall have never been super close. However, family is family and that should always come first. Kevin knew that something was wrong when Randall was not able to make Kevin's big night, and finally Kevin made sure he was there to help his brother. Watching Randall hit his breaking point, while crying in his brother's arm was both heartwarming but heartbreaking, not leaving a single dry eye.

As the families' perfect image seems to be crumbling, the fight escalades.8. Kate breakthrough at weight loss camp

Kate and Jack held a special bond that he did not share with other siblings, making Kate seem to allow her father's death to affect her the most, even after many years.

With her heart on her sleeve, tears streaming down her face, and her arms smashing into the drums she showers her anger, pain and fears that all came with the loss of her beloved father. 9. Jack and Rebecca's temporary split

It is hard to name a couple as in love as the Pearson's, but every marriage comes with hardships. After Jack begins drinking again, which leads him to fist fight a member of Rebecca's band, the couple decide to take a break. To see the kids try to cope while Rebecca downplays the severity of the situation forced viewers to wonder – is the couple calling it quits? After investing so much love into their marriage not only would a divorce tear their family apart, but all the viewers hearts.

10. Jacks funeral

There is no doubt that Jack's death and funeral caused every single viewer to hysterically cry. The loss of such an amazing man and father was felt deeply in all's hearts. Seeing his kids lash out and suffer from such a horrific and tragic event was brutal. The rock of the family was gone, with no warning and no goodbye. Such young kids, losing an amazing role model so young made hearts physically ache. Jack was so easy to love and feel connected to, making his death and funeral that much harder.
