11 times we didn’t deserve Beth Pearson from This Is Us

This Is Us gave the world a gift it didn’t deserve with Beth Pearson. From calling marriage to throwing up peace signs, she’s a true goddess. These 11 gifs prove why.

Listen, we could debate for hours who the best character on This Is Us is, or we could cut to the chase and call a spade a spade: It’s Beth. We all know it’s Beth. No matter how you slice it, the character with the strongest moral code and the most popular rating in the court of public opinion is one Beth Pearson. Remember the outcry for Beth’s livelihood when those death rumors started swirling around? Yeah, that’s some real fan love.

Sure, you could make a case for pretty much every character on This Is Us, and every fan will have their own opinion. That’s the wonderful thing about television fandom. However, we’re shining the spotlight on Beth because, well, she deserves it — even if we don’t deserve her. Whether she’s talking some sense into Randall or supporting him through a difficult time, she’s always there for her family and wearing her heart on her sleeve. In these 11 gifs, Beth proved that there’s simply no one quite as iconic as her glorious self.
