Yesterday, Sunday, March 12, the last episode of the first season of “The Last of Us” was broadcast, which received all kinds of praise and positive reviews, but also took the hearts of its fans with it. In the final chapter, we see how Joel does everything possible to rescue Ellie, caring nothing more than the brotherly love he feels for her, and without considering the terrible consequences of his actions.
Those who know the story in advance have even asked that the series not continue, considering what will come next, but the truth is that beyond its detractors and admirers, the series did not leave anyone indifferent. HBO has already confirmed the arrival of a second season, so all that remains is to wait if the series will continue the same path as the videogames, or if there will be a new narrative path that will explore more possibilities with which to solve the actions of our protagonists.
