Derry Girls season three has *finally* arrived on our screens and, following a whole load of anticipation, the new series does not disappoint.

So far, we've seen fans becoming thoroughly obsessed with one moment from episode one, while they've also been busy predicting a pretty huge conclusion for the final season. Now, viewers are back to discussing the series following episode two's arrival on 19th April - and they're all getting emotional over the same scene.

To recap, episode two saw Erin and the gang speculating that her mum, Mary, was having an affair with the new hot plumber, Gabriel, after they spotted her meeting up with him at a mystery address one evening.

However, it later materialised that Mary was in fact joining Gabriel's literature study club, with Mary revealing that she hoped to return to school and finally go to university.

The emotional scene saw Mary telling her family, "The idea that someone like me could go back to school, the idea that someone like me might even go to university - well, it didn't seem possible. I thought there's no point in telling anybody about all this 'cos it's not actually going to happen. It's not real."

Mary's husband Gerry then replied in a sweet moment, "Well, let's make it real, if it's what you want," before emotionally adding, "There's nothing you can't do, love. Nothing."

Fans have been quick to respond to the scene on social media, and it seems like everyone is having the same reaction: tearing up in a big way, that is.

Channel 4 tweeted a clip from the scene, writing, "This is what true love looks like," with one viewer responding, "This moment made me bawl my eyes out."

Another wrote, "Swear to god, the Irish in me cried during this scene. Doing it for all Irish women, including my mum, grandmothers, and aunts who never felt good enough either. Education is for all."

A third added, "Am I the only one who cried when Gerry said Mary can be anything she wants?"

Mary + Gerry = all the heart emojis.
