It introduces a brand new character who is not a part of the video games but easily could have fit right in. Despite being 43 minutes long, it sets up for what is sure to be one of the best episodes to come.
ELLIE & JOEL’S TRAVELS
The Last Of Us Episode 4 starts with Ellie checking out the new gun she got from Bill’s house in the previous episode. Clearly, she hasn’t spent much time around firearms, but she knows that she needs to learn how to use them in a world like this.
In the morning, Joel tells the story of how he and Tommy met Tess, and then Tommy met Marlene and joined fireflies. Last Joel heard, he had quit the fireflies too. Joel thinks his brother is all alone out there, and he has to get him.
A NEW CHARACTER – KATHLEEN
We then flash to a man being questioned by a woman who we soon learn is Kathleen. She says she wonders if this is the cell where her brother was beaten to death, and it is clear she is not messing around.
