The Last of Us Episode 8 release date is what fans are curious about after everything that we saw in The Last of Us Episode 7 on 26 February 2023. This is a drama show which is set in a world that has seen trauma and apocalypse.
The inspiration behind the series has been adopted from a video game of the same name. HBO commissioned the show back in 2022, which has only recently started airing weekly on the platform. In the lead, we see actor Pedro Pascal as Joel Miller. His profession is of a smuggler, and his work is to escort a kid named Ellie.
Turns out that Ellie does not have the virus because she has a natural antidote in her. This is why the government wants her to research her body. But her parents, who obviously do not want the sanity of their child disturbed by the various experiments, want her home, which is situated all across the United States.
Back in The Last of Us Episode 7, titled Left Behind, we saw that Ellie and Joel are staying at a house where nobody lives. He has been injured badly and is trying to heal. Now that he might die soon, Joel asks Ellie to leave him behind and go on the journey without him. This makes her remember the time when she was in military school with a friend from the past. Her name was Riley.
The Last of Us Episode 7 Recap – Left Behind
Turns out that when Ellie was actually getting into trouble with people at the FEDRA, Riley ran away, and nobody saw her for 3 weeks. Turns out that she went away and joined forces with the Fireflies. When she takes Ellie out of their dorm as well, the duo visits a mall and has a great time together.
Turns out that Riley has been assigned to go to Atlanta in order to complete a mission, and she is going to leave tomorrow. Thus, as it is her last night in Boston, she is enjoying all her time with Ellie. This is when more of Ellie’s sexuality is revealed, as we see that she gets upset that Riley is going to leave her and urges her to stay successful. As Riley agrees, the two kiss.
Although, soon after this incident, an Infected walks by and tries to attack them. Ellie is able to kill him off, but both the girls are now bitten, and the virus is spreading in them fast. Thus, knowing their fate, both the girls decide to stay with each other and see what happens with their bodies as the infection shall spread in them.
The story is now resumed to the present day, where Ellie has decided not to leave Joel behind because the two have formed a close bond now. She tries to find a sewing kit in the house and comes back to Joel. The wound is open right now and then, and Ellie tries to stitch it up.
