The Last of Us Star Is Not Happy Losing [SPOILERS] in Season 2

WARNING: If you haven’t watched The Last of Us on HBO Max or played The Last of Us Part II, this article contains MAJOR SPOILERS for The Last of Us Season 2. Read at your own risk!

The Last of Us is no stranger when it comes to heartbreak, in fact, so much so that the series practically normalized losing people in the process, given the post-apocalyptic setting of the HBO series. The Last of Us Season 1 so far lost Sarah Miller (Nico Parker), Tess (Anna Torv), Bill (Nick Offerman), and Frank (Murray Bartlett), and Season 2 is losing yet another major character that video gamers are well aware of losing.

The Last of Us Part II will be losing Pedro Pascal’s Joel Miller due to his unfortunate fate in the game. It’s a given that over the years after Joel lost his daughter Sarah, the man got himself into some shady business that risked his life in many possible ways, which led to his death in Part II. Bella Ramsey (who plays Ellie in the series) opens up about the major development that will take part in The Last of Us Season 2 on the Happy Sad Confused podcast with Josh Horowitz. Check out their full quote below:

“The complexity of [Ellie]’s relationship with Joel and how that gets decidedly more complex, I’m looking forward to that.” Ramsey said, “And the violence that ensues is thrilling in a way, to get to maybe explore that in a really safe environment. It will be cool. But I am nervous about it, too.”

The Ellie actor reiterates that apart from losing the series’ Joel, Ramsey would have to be left alone for a while by co-star Pedro Pascal in shooting Season 2: “Like I’m nervous about, because I know what happens in the second game and I’m nervous about being potentially without Pedro for a while. It’s gonna be really sad.”
