Following the airing of The Last of Us episode 8 on HBO, Twitter has been making a buzz. The conclusion of Ellie’s story and the series’ general course have become hot topics of conversation among viewers. Many users applauded the script and acting, and some even said that they were moved to tears by the episode.
The Last of Us Episode 8 on HBO is much more powerful in the storyline than The Last of Us episode 7.
“Tommy’s Dam” is the title of episode 7 of The Last of Us. The story opens with Joel and Ellie traveling to Tommy’s Dam, a hydroelectric dam operated by Tommy, Joel’s brother. At the dam, the group is hoping to find refuge and safety, but things swiftly get worse.
A bunch of robbers led by a man named David is attacking the dam. To protect the dam and fend off the intruders, Tommy and his company are joined by Joel and Ellie. Ellie, however, is kidnapped hostage by David and sent to a nearby town. A tense encounter between David and Joel results from Joel’s attempt to save Ellie in the Last of Us Episode 7.
