The season finale of The Wanted Life had us laughing, crying and even gave us goosebumps.

If you missed it or just want to relive it, here's a full recap of the episode with candid observations and pics/gifs of the best moments!

The episode starts off with Max, Tom, Siva and Jay all still in The Bahamas, and poor Nathan packing up his bag to head back to the U.S. to get emergency throat surgery.

Nathan gets back safe and sound and has a meeting with The Wanted's manager, Scooter Braun. They have a serious discussion about the surgery and his future with the band. Scooter decides it's a good idea for Nathan's mom to be there for the surgery and decides to fly her to the United States.

We find it adorable that Nathan loves his mom so much!

It's the day of Nathan's surgery and it hasn't really hit us that it's happening. He's getting a serious operation on his instrument that makes his career!


We didn't really realize it was so serious until we saw the IV...

Because The Wanted guys are so amazing, the guys decide to cut their trip short and give Nathan a surprise visit after his surgery.


Nathan's surgery went well and the guys all get to go into the post-op room and give him hugs and kisses.


Probably one of the most heartwarming moments in television history. Had us tearing up...

This moment kind of makes Jay think about the rest of their careers and he makes a very good point about success.

The Wanted guys head to Scooter's office and we get a first listen to their brand-new single, "We Own The Night"! We're hooked and couldn't be more ready for it's release!


It sounds like a great song and an awesome jam to have on at a party.

After hearing the song, the guys all head back home to the U.K. and we're sad to see them leave us!


A couple months pass and The Wanted are set to perform at Wembley Stadium for the 2013 Summertime Ball in front of 86,000 people. They want this show to be huge!


Scooter surprises the guys with Nathan's return and how do they welcome him back? With a good ole' fashion tickle fight!
