    While on patrol, Joel and Tommy find and rescue an infected girl. Soon, they are attacked by a group called Washington Liberation Front. One of the members is none other than Abby. Her father was one of the doctors who prepped Ellie’s surgery. Abby fully embraces this moment of cosmic retribution, beating Joel to death with a golf club.

    It’s clear from the onset that Joel Miller’s strength is fading. Tasked with escorting Ellie safely, he is outmatched on several occasions, which endangers his and Ellie’s life. He finally tells his brother Tommy about how he’s becoming a walking liability. As the show progresses, he finds it hard to protect Ellie.

    In ‘The Ties That Bind,’ Joel gets majorly wounded while trying to protect Ellie from the raiders. He’s finally brought to life thanks to Ellie, but his almost dying is not an encouraging sign. If anything, it left Ellie vulnerable to an attack that she thankfully made out alive. The second season could finally show Joel meeting his end and Ellie setting on a path of vengeance.

    In an interview with British GQ, Craig Mazin hinted that not all of ‘The Last Of Us Part II‘ will be covered for the show’s second season. In her conversation with Josh Horowitz, Bella Ramsey revealed excitement and nervousness about the show’s second season. If the show remains faithful to the game, Ramsey’s character will eventually be without Pedro Pascal’s character.
