The sixth episode of The Last of Us series has once again left us speechless. The HBO production has been crowned once again with an outstanding chapter, with magnificent direction, stellar performances and a wide variety of curiosities and secrets to discover.
ATTENTION SPOILERS: from this point the plot of the sixth episode and that of the video games will be discussed openly.
The plot takes us to one of the most anticipated moments, the meeting between Tommy and Joel. Both brothers meet again in the Jackson settlement, where a large group of people have managed to create a civilized community. After the hug between the two, they are invited to the local bar to catch up and it is at that moment that we see the following character:
A girl stares at Ellie from behind a column because, as Maria points out, her behavior and attitude is really unusual for young people who live in Jackson. Ellie confronts her and she walks away scared by the protagonist’s manners. An appearance that is not very relevant, but that has completely obsessed the community.
And is that everyone agrees: that character looks like Dina. Her appearance is very similar to what we could see in The Last of Us Part II and her interaction with Ellie is more than particular, since in the video game the two end up being a couple. She never appeared in the first Naughty Dog title and to clear us up, Neil Druckmann has addressed this issue in the weekly HBO podcast.
The co-showrunner of the adaptation and director of the second title has pointed out that this situation is very similar to the one Dina and Ellie had when they first saw each other. However, far from clearing up our doubts, Druckmann has wanted to keep the veil of mystery. “That does not mean that it is Dina, but neither does it mean that she is not,” explained the person in charge.
The logical thing is to think that it is Dinabut that we will have to wait until the second season to be clear if the actress Paolina van Kleef will be in charge of interpreting the character or, indeed, it is just an illusion that we have created for ourselves.
