Next Sunday, Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) arrive in Wyoming, where Joel will finally reunite with Tommy (Gabriel Luna) and learn more about what he's been up to since the brothers went their separate ways. There'll be some tension, of course, but Joel is definitely going to need his little brother's help if he's going to find the remaining Fireflies.
The episode will also introduce Tommy's wife Maria (Rutina Wesley) and based on the promo, it sounds like she'll be having a very important conversation with Ellie about trust. However, whether she's talking about Joel or someone else remains to be seen.
In addition to plenty of quality Joel/Ellie bonding scenes, we should also expect a major action sequence if they follow the events of the game, but the stills don't tip their hand either way, so guess we'll have to wait until Sunday to find out!
