Alex Trebek signed off for the last time in an emotional last episode of Jeopardy! with the legendary Trebek as the longtime host of the show. “Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, for spending the time with us. We’ll see you again next week,” Trebek says in the final words of his last episode, not knowing he would not be there for a ‘next week.’

Trebek back in November 2020 after a battle with stage four pancreatic cancer. Trebek filmed episodes for Jeopardy! up until his death, concluding his run with the show with 36 years and more than 8,000 episodes.

As a proper send-off and tribute, the Jeopardy! staff played a tribute compilation of some of Trebek’s best moments on the show. The tribute ends with several years of Trebek saying, “So long,” at the end of each episode. During the last episode is what tugs at the viewer’s heartstrings as a clearly exhausted and frail Trebek wishes us a last “So long”, and walks away, fist-pumping the air.

Trebek opened up last Monday’s episode with an important message for viewers. “You’ll recall that about a month ago I asked all of you to take a moment to give thanks for all the blessings you enjoy in your lives,” Trebek introduces to the audience. “Now, today, a different kind of message: this is the season of giving. I know you want to be generous with your family, your friends, your loved ones, but today I’d like you to go one step further. I’d like you to open up your hands and open your heart to those who are still suffering because of COVID-19. People who are suffering through no fault of their own. We’re trying to build a gentler, kinder society and if we all pitch in just a little bit we’re going to get there.”
