The Last of Us Season 2 is expected to pick up the events following the finale of the first season where Joel saved Ellie from the Fireflies after Marlene revealed that in order to make a cure, the doctors would have to get the source of Ellie's immunity -- her brain.
That means Ellie would have to die in order for the rest of humanity to be saved. With Joel now being like a father to Ellie, he could not let that happen, not after he lost Sarah, he's not losing another daughter, even when Ellie is not his blood.
Now, Joel and Ellie are on their way back to the camp of Tommy where a home is waiting for them, but still, there is some doubt within Ellie that Joel may have been lying to her about what really happened. Despite such, Joel stood his ground, and Ellie has to hold onto something.
All of the episodes of The Last of Us are now streaming on HBO Max. There is no release date yet for The Last of Us Season 2
