🚨 There are MASSIVE — and I mean MASSIVE — spoilers ahead for The Last of Us Episode 9, aka the Season 1 finale! 🚨
Well, The Last of Us Season 1 has finally come to an end, and to say I'm emotional would be an understatement. The Last of Us Episode 9 — titled "Look for the Light," directed by Ali Abbasi, and written by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann — was a perfect episode of TV once again.
This week's episode opened with us seeing the day Ellie (Bella Ramsey) was born and how her mom, Anna (Ashley Johnson), was bitten by an infected mere minutes before giving birth. The heartbreaking opening ended with Marlene (Merle Dandridge) arriving, taking Ellie, and having to kill Anna, her best friend.
The whole thing was even more heartbreaking if you know that Ashley, who played Anna, voiced and did the motion capture for Ellie in The Last of Us video games. A brilliant full-circle moment.
Aside from the opening minutes, this finale took a chaotic turn when Ellie and Joel (Pedro Pascal) finally met up with the Fireflies, and Joel learned they were planning to do a life-threatening procedure on Ellie.
What ensued was Joel killing everyone in the hospital and then lying to Ellie about what really happened while she was unconscious.
The Last of Us Season 1 finale perfectly sets up Ellie and Joel's journey moving forward and changes the course of their relationship forever.
So, to express their love for (and genuine shock from) 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 9:
