Once again, HBO and the team behind The Last of Us have proven that they take video game accuracy very seriously. This week’s episode of The Last of Us was much less emotional than what viewers saw last week, but it had us glued to our screens nonetheless.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for episode 4 of The Last of Us.
This week saw Joel and Ellie have their much-anticipated run-in with raiders, or in the show’s case, a ruthless militia/revolutionary group. Just like in the game, Joel and Ellie are forced to abandon their truck after falling victim to a trap orchestrated by a militia group controlling the city they’re trying to pass through.
While trying to sneak through the city on foot and undetected, Ellie is forced to kill in order to save Joel. Before the credits roll though, the two come face to face with Sam and Henry, who are also on the run from the militia group.
The little details from the game the show included in this episode made fans’ hearts soar, and we’re here to help break it all down in the form of hilarious Twitter reactions. Take a look at 19 tweets about episode four of The Last of Us we love.
