In this week’s episode we have many smaller references to both The Last of Us Part I And The Last of Us Part II.

At the beginning of the episode, we’re given the intro, a brief synopsis of last week’s tragic moment with Henry, and it’s quickly followed by lyrics that say “3 Months Later.” We’re now in the winter part of the story, one of the most emotionally charged segments of the game, but also where we see Joel and Ellie’s relationship starting to solidify, and that’s what we’re getting in this episode. When the winter chapter begins in the video game, we see Ellie shooting a rabbit with a bow and arrow. Here things play out a little differently. Joel and Ellie ask a couple for directions and Ellie steals one of their rabbits. ask Joel if he can teach her how to hunt her.

As Joel and Ellie continue their trek across the mountains, Ellie whiles away the time trying to whistle. Here, the scene and dialogue are exactly literal as in the video game, although that interaction takes place at a different point in the story.

“You have no idea what loss is…”

Joel and Ellie have their first big fight, and it’s one of the most iconic scenes in the entire franchise. While the scene structure differs from the game, the ending is the same. Ellie eventually confronts Joel about Sarah, and things get heated. Loss is such an essential theme in the series. Each episode has only highlighted why Joel and Ellie need each other to survive and this episode borrows heavily from that. From Ellie and Joel’s clothes to the wallpaper and the room’s journal, this scene perfectly matches the moment from the game.

Joel’s singing wishes

Joel has finally started to open up after months of being lured out of his shell by Ellie. After telling Ellie that he would like to have a small sheep farm, he changes his mind about what he really wants to do with his life. He would like to be a famous singer. That heartwarming moment has been quashed The Last of Us Part I. Hopefully we will hear Pedro Pascal Before the end of the season, sing an 80s power ballad.

Joel and Ellie are caught by a group patrolling near the river. We learn that it was Tommy’s wife, Maria, and her Boy Scouts who brought her to their thriving community.

When Joel and Ellie meet Maria, there is a brief shot of a girl staring at Ellie, who looks like Dina. Could this have been our first look at Ellie’s love interest for next season? We don’t have an official word on this, but it’s definitely possible.

The two have a great day learning about the solar system and rocket ships. On the series, Ellie talks about her love for Sally Ride, the first American to fly into space.

The Sheep Farm

Ellie asks Joel what he would like to do if they synthesize a cure from their blood, to which Joel replies by saying that he would like to have a sheep farm. While The Last of Us Part II, we see that Ellie and Dina have a sheep farm. Maybe Ellie took over Joel’s farm? Or maybe he served as an inspiration.

Shimmer the horse

In the stable, Maria introduces Ellie to the horses and especially shows off her shimmer. In The Last of Us Part II, Shimmer is the name of Ellie’s horse, which means that Maria will probably give the horse to her in the future. Ellie and Shimmer go through rough times during the game, so hopefully they don’t want the same tragic outcome in the future.
