Although The Last of Us has been diverging from the original game, the HBO series has also brought to life some of the best moments from the Naughty Dog title. For instance, the truck scene with the magazine was perfect from start to finish.

But is it possible that The Last of Us Episode 6 will actually feature a scene that has gone viral? The images from Kin seem to confirm we'll see one of the most talked-about moments in the game.

Two of the photos from The Last of Us Episode 6 feature Joel and Ellie cooking a meal over a bonfire. Although it is unclear what they are roasting in the fire, it appears to be a small animal that doesn't have a lot of meat.

It might be too soon to assume but some fans believe that this scene takes place after a sequence where Ellie hunts for food. In the game, this is preceded by an adorable little rabbit coming out of its hole before being shot by the girl. The scene, which is only a small moment in The Last of Us, had turned into a viral meme after Twitch streamer Emme Montgomery, aka Negaoryx, reacted to the rabbit's unceremonious death.

We're really hoping that no rabbits (real or not) will be harmed in The Last of Us Episode 6 but there is a huge chance we'll be seeing that scene considering the show loves to shock people.

The Last of Us Episode 6 images also confirm that Rutina Wesley will finally debut as Maria, the leader of a settlement in Jackson, Wyoming. We'll also get to see the return of Gabriel Luna as Tommy who will be reunited with his brother Joel.

The Last of Us Episode 6 is titled Kin and is directed by Jasmila Žbanić based on the screenplay written by Craig Mazin. The next episode will premiere on HBO Max on Sunday, February 19, 2023.
