It was absolutely heartbreaking to watch Camille Braverman (Bonnie Bedelia) realize her husband Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) had died one quiet afternoon in their living room in the final episode of Parenthood.
And though it certainly made any fan of the NBC family drama cry, it likely did not come as a big surprise.
But what many might have missed in the second episode of Season 6 was a very short but poignant scene between Adam (Peter Krause) and Zeek at his birthday party when Adam pleaded with his father to have the surgery.
Zeek then said exactly what his eldest son should do. And though it was just a passing moment, one that seemingly was never even shared with any other family members, the Bravermans honored Zeek's precise wishes in the series finale.
