This Sunday (or DomingUS) he gave us a new and emotional episode of the series The Last of Us, starring the characters Ellie and Riley played by actresses Bella Ramsay and Storm Reid. Episode called Left Behind and that is nourished by the DLC of the same name, which was released in the video game on which the series is based and where a story of Ellie is told prior to the main events of the Naughty Dog title.
Episode which we will talk about with SPOILERS so if you’re still reading this and haven’t seen it, continue at your own risk.
And it is that like the bomb review that the episode of Long, Long Time received, where the love relationship of the characters Bill and Frank was presented in more detail, which is only mentioned in passing in a moving scene from the video game, again the “fans” are criticizing the inclusion of same-sex relationships in the series. This since chapter 7 of the series recreates moments from the DLC of the video game and shows, among other things, the kiss between Ellie and Riley. Something that, as I say, does not make sense since, like Bill and Frank’s relationship, what we see in the new episode is part of the original work, so all these negative reviews sound more like a tantrum from people with little judgment and who only hate to hate.

Some of the negative reviews that can be read on the Metacritic site say that “this is not The Last of Us. HBO ruined a great story with a stupid woke drama. The Last of Us holds you steady throughout the journey, full of action, lots of danger, zombies, bandits, soldiers.” And another user, who also apparently never played The Last of Us, goes further by stating that it is “another crappy, linear and unconvincing episode”, further adding that Left Behind “should have appeared as a 5 minute flashback”.
Ideas that in any case are not shared by the majority of the audience and fans of the video game, who delivered messages of admiration, commenting that it was “an episode with a completely great back story”, which “lays the foundations for the Ellie’s further developments,” further warning that we should not listen “to ignorant homophobic trolls who can’t help but feel threatened by stories like this.”
