Episode two of HBO’s The Last of Us has landed, and boy, did it deliver. Just like last week, video game fans who knew what events were going to transpire were still heartbroken, and we’ve got the hilarious tweets to prove it.
Spoiler Warning for Episode 2 of The Last of Us
So, anyone else’s anxiety go through the f**king roof watching that clicker scene in the hallway with Joel? This week saw Tess, Joel, and Ellie make their journey through infected Boston to get to the State House. After a run-in with clickers, Tess gets bitten and has to make her grand farewell in the episode’s final moments. We knew it was coming, but HBO had a few changes up their sleeve that floored us all (you know exactly which part I’m talking about).
Take a look at 21 hilarious (but also heartbreaking) tweets about everything that went down in episode two of The Last of Us.
Fans who followed the show’s press junket and read some early reviews are probably aware that episode three has already received a lot of praise. In fact, Troy Baker, who voiced and performance-captured Joel in the video game, had this to say about the upcoming episode:
I’ve seen up to episode five and, I can tell you right now, you get to episode three, you’re done. You are standing on your desk, ‘O, Captain! My Captain!’ What it sets up in the first two episodes, it introduces you to the world if you have no idea what it is. It takes all of your expectations and just gets rid of them.Troy Baker
