The penultimate episode of The Last of Us is here, and yes, tears were shed by many fans. This week’s episode saw the infamous Winter section of the video game come to life in spectacular fashion. Not to mention, we got to see the OG Joel himself, Troy Baker, make his highly anticipated appearance as a member of David’s group.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for episode 8 of The Last of Us
Ah yes, the Winter scenes. David. Cannibalism. Joel threatening to pop a guy’s kneecap off. Ellie breaking fingers. The infamous “baby girl” scene. Episode eight of The Last of Us brought all of that and more. I don’t know about you, but I’m still tearing up over Joel saying “baby girl” to Ellie for the first time since Sarah died. In short, Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal DID THAT.
