The latest episode of The Last of Us series has been nothing short of amazing. With Joel and Ellie as the central characters, the show offers a unique perspective on the post-apocalyptic world and its characters.
In this episode, we see Ellie asking questions about the origin of the infection that has ravaged the world and Joel trying to answer them as best he can.
One of the most interesting aspects of the show is the dynamic between Joel and Ellie, where Ellie was born after the outbreak and has never experienced the world as it was before. This is shown in several scenes where Ellie is amazed by things Joel takes for granted, like flying in airplanes. The gap between their understanding of the world is a fascinating aspect of their relationship, and it’s great to see it being explored in the show.
The episode also delves into the backstory of Bill and Frank, two characters who were hinted at in the game but not much was known about them. This episode is largely about their relationship and it is one of the saddest pieces of television I’ve ever seen.
The writing and the performances of Nick Offerman and Murray Bartlett are outstanding, and they make the story both heart-wrenching and hopeful.
The director, Peter, made a wise choice in not showing the bodies of Bill and Frank in the end, as we see them at their happiest and that is the last image we have of them. This was a deeply affecting moment and the choice not to show the bodies is a testament to the power of the writing and the performances.
In conclusion, The Last of Us Part III is a show that truly stands out from the rest. With its captivating storyline, dynamic characters, and powerful performances, it’s a show that’s not to be missed. Whether you’re a fan of the game or not, this series is well worth your time and attention.
