Clip From ‘Born This Way’ Finale Proves This Is the Must-Watch Show of the Year

Tuesday night, the season finale of “Born This Way” airs on A&E, and judging from the emotional clip below, it’s another must-watch episode.

The six-part docu-series, which premiered in December and has already been picked up for a second season, follows seven people with Down syndrome as they pursue career goals and romantic relationships, form friendships, overcome obstacles and make their way in the world.

In the finale clip below, a young woman sits down to have an honest talk with her mother about the day they received her Down syndrome diagnosis. The conversation that follows is powerful.

“I thought it was going to be so hard and so difficult,” her mother says. “It was not as hard, but I didn’t know, and when you don’t know, you are scared.”
