After 25 years on the air, “The Oprah Winfrey Show” is coming to an end, but in true Oprah fashion, the final episodes have been some of the most revealing and entertaining in the show’s history.

On Friday’s show, Oprah revealed her all-time favorite guest — Dr. Tererai Trent, a Zimbabwean woman who was married at 11, had three children by 18, and whose husband beat her every day. As Oprah explains, she was “not allowed to have an education” yet moved to America and earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree, as well as a PhD. She first appeared on the show in 2009.

Anticipation is mounting for the two-night finale which was taped Tuesday night at the United Center in the heart of Chicago, and featured a star-studded lineup of friends of the show ranging from Michael Jordan to Beyonce to Tom Cruise.
