Warning! This article contains major spoilers for The Last of Us episode 2. If you've not watched it yet and don't want to know what happens, then turn back now. HBO's The Last of Us adaptation has been pretty faithful to the Naughty Dog game on which its based so far. The premiere included the essential narrative beats - the tragic prologue, 20-year time jump, Joel meeting Ellie, and more - and expanded everything around them. Episode 2, however, tweaks one big moment in a major way: Tess's death. Instead of being gunned down by FEDRA soldiers in the Massachusetts State House, like her...

Tess, after contracting Cordyceps , sacrificed herself to ensure Joel and Ellie escaped from a horde of infected. Before they left, though, Tess gave a heartfelt speech...

The Last of Us creators reveal they wrote a tragic backstory for Tess - but we'll never get to see it. Spoilers for The Last of Us episode 2 follow. "We wrote it, but we never shot it: it was a little bit of a backstory for Tess," Craig Mazin revealed on the HBO show's official podcast. "Tess had a kid. She had a husband and she had a son, and they were infected. She had to kill them. She killed her husband, but she could not kill her son. She couldn't do it. She locked him in the basement, where theoretically he's still a clicker." Neil Druckmann, who also directed The Last of Us episode...

Not every Last of Us fan is sold on episode 2's big 'kiss'

9 days ago   |   By GamesRadar

The Last of Us has its first controversial change - and it's dividing viewers. Major spoilers for The Last of Us episode 2 follow. The tail-end of The Last of Us episode 2 featured a deviation from the games that set tongues wagging: Tess, having accepted her fate, being ‘kissed' by one of the tendril-strewn infected before killing them. In Naughty Dog's 2013 PlayStation title, she is gunned down by FEDRA soldiers. "Actually hate how the weird difference in Tess's death scene overshadows the rest of the episode, they just could've left that out I think," one viewer wrote in reaction to the...
