THE LAST OF US’ latest episode, THE TIES THAT BIND, proves why this show is truly different. We’ve seen different facets of the post-apocalyptic world weekly, but the newest installment has given us even more to ponder.
It feels like Joel talks more than the entire rest of the season thus far, but, of course, it’s Ellie that steals the show. Such complex relationships are explored in this episode, continuing the streak of highly multi-dimensional characters. And framing these conversations is beautiful Western-inspired cinematography. An aura of wandering and exploration has been folded into this episode that feels so satisfying to watch.
THE LAST OF US S1E6 THE TIES THAT BIND is now streaming on HBO Max.
