1When Tim Pushed All The BS Aside And Got Super Real With Lyla


Considering all of the drama in the love triangle that was Jason Street, Lyla Garrity, and Tim Riggins, most of us were emotional wrecks. But we made it out alive, and knew Tim and Lyla would end up together.

When Tim cut the BS and told Lyla, "Be honest with yourself for two seconds, and look me in the eye and tell me you don't feel the way I feel about you," he had us cheering. Yas, Tim, yasss.

2That Moment When Tim Told Lyla He's "Madly In Love" With Her


Although he portrayed an iconic bad boy persona throughout the series, Tim Riggins could be super sweet when he wanted to be... most specifically with our main girl Lyla. This line will forever be engrained in our nostalgic hearts: "Did I just say I loved you? Did I? ... Cause I'm kinda madly in love with you, and I'll be here no matter what."

We're kind of, sort of, madly in love with you too, Tim Riggins.

3When Tim Told Lyla She Needed To Go To Vanderbilt


This scene definitely made a small tear in our hearts, but we knew that Tim told Lyla she needed to attend Vanderbilt only because he cared about her and loved her so much. And for that, it was truly a selfless, beautiful moment.

When Lyla debated remaining in Texas with Tim and studying at San Antonio State, Tim's lines definitely cued all the feels: "I'm not gonna be that guy to stop you from achieving your dreams." BRB, grabbing the tissues for a hot sec.

4When Lyla Told Tim That He Missed Her


Remember when Lyla returned to town and there was a glimmering light of hope for the couple's romance when she hit up his trailer? The duo headed to the bar with Mindy and Billy; Lyla rode the mechanical bull, and when she fell off, she said to Tim, "You miss me?" He responded with, "You have no idea," then kissed her, obviously.

5When Lyla Asked Tim What He Truly Wanted In Life


I think we can all agree that this episode brought on an insane roller coaster ride of emotions. When Lyla asked Tim what he really wanted out of life, we all instantaneously swooned as he responded, "You." But in our hearts, we knew that as sweet, romantic, and adorable AF as this answer sounded, it wouldn't be enough.

Lyla continued on to ask, "What else do you want?" and Tim responded again with, "You." Lyla and Rigs were pursuing two completely opposite paths, and all of us knew this was the finale of their epic romance. We just truly couldn't fathom the idea of accepting it. Oh, Lyla and Tim, why must you toy with our feels like that?! #Unfair.

Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose, peeps.
