The Last of Us Episode 9 preview

HBO has released a preview of the finale for The Last of Us. Some of the scenes will be familiar to those who played the video game and know how it ends. For those who are experiencing The Last of Us for the first time through the HBO series, you’re in for quite an explosive finale.

I imagine if you’re looking up when Episode 9 airs, then you’ve been keeping up to date with the series. Episode 9 picks up with Joel and Ellie as they finally appear to reach their destination and meet up with the Fireflies. But as per usual, nothing goes according to plan. We see Joel roaming through a hospital-like lab. We see Ellie roaming through some woods. It’s all just a glimpse of the intense season finale for The Last of Us.

I say season finale because The Last of Us has been renewed for a second season. It will follow the events of the second game.
