    Once Again, Everyone's Sobbing Over "The Last Of Us," So Here Are 33 Of The Best Tweets About Episode 7

    Bella Ramsey and Storm Reid delivered powerful and award-worthy performances in a The Last of Us episode that, once again, made everyone sob — even after the episode was over.

    🚨 There are MASSIVE — and I mean MASSIVE — spoilers ahead for The Last of Us Episode 7! 🚨

    Well, here we are again. The Last of Us Episode 7 — titled "Left Behind" and directed by Liza Johnson and written by Neil Druckmann — was another emotionally draining episode of TV, to say the least.

    Ellie and Riley on a carousel

    This week's episode, which was bookended by Ellie (Bella Ramsey) trying desperately to save Joel (Pedro Pascal) after he was stabbed in Episode 6, was a flashback-heavy episode where Ellie was dragged to a mall for a night of fun by Riley (Storm Reid), who has joined the Fireflies, before she leaves for an Atlanta QZ.

    Of course, this is The Last of Us, so all of the happy moments shared between Ellie and Riley quickly turned heartbreaking when both of them were bitten by an infected.

    So to express their love for this latest episode, fans — like me — and the cast took to Twitter to make some amazing jokes and memes and simply give some A+ commentary. Here's a look at some of the best tweets about The Last of Us, Episode 7:

    33. In conclusion:

    HBO is absolutely killing it with #TheLastofUs . As someone who loves the emotional element of the video game, it’s so nice to see it being translated so well to television.
