bursted in tears at the end of episode 5. and i finally understand why this is us is this is us. the whole life is like an infinite painting where everyone keeps adding his own colour till we are not different colours anymore. we become just one thing. theres no dying. the dead dont vanish. they are still with us somehow in the painting. theres no u or me or them; this is us. and i think this is not even united states, this is united species. but the idea is not new. fullmetal alchemist tells the same story in six words. one is all; all is one.
