Last night's episode of This Is Us caused some disagreement among fans.

"This Big, Amazing, Beautiful Life," took a deep dive into Deja's life, as we find out more about how exactly she ended up at Beth and Randall's house. Although the episode weaves in a few moments that focus on the Pearson clan, the overall focus was on Deja's backstory and her journey through foster care.

But not everyone was a fan of this episode, especially since the season is nearing its end.

I really don't want to watch an entire episode on Deja, especially when there are only two left in the season. 😐

I’m not gonna lie...I’m kinda over the Deja episode... I’d rather focus on the Pearsons

Others had some harsh words for Deja's mother Shauna, who experiences her own struggles throughout the episode.

If this episode was suppose to make us sympathize with deja’s mom-

Every time I start to feel bad for Deja’s mom, she screws up again. Putting a man in front of her kid? I won’t forgive that

And others appreciated the episode for highlighting Deja's backstory and providing insight into the foster care system.

It's sad that some people dismissed last night's because it was a "Deja episode." Like I'm sorry? Deja and her relationship with the Pearsons, has been one of the most surprising and heartfelt storylines this season. And to finally know more about her? Priceless

Man this episode hits me like crazy. I’ve been through every situation Deja has plus more in the foster care system. Being in there since age 9 made me grow thick skin then trying to explain all of it to my kids was even worse

You can and decide for yourself what you think of it.

We're guessing people will have even more thoughts (and plenty of feelings) about the season finale next week, which seemingly manages to bring back Jack Pearson as a senior citizen.
