The Last of Us continued tonight, picking up the story three months after the events of last week's heartbreaking installment and we saw Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) finally make their way to Jackson, Wyoming, where Joel was able to reunite with his younger brother Tommy (Gabriel Luna) and learn more about what he's been up to.
While there was plenty of tension throughout the hour, with Joel struggling with a myriad of things, namely his surrogate father/daughter relationship with Ellie as well as Tommy's new perspective on life, the hour did ultimately see the pair continue their journey as a unit.
Unfortunately, however, they quickly ran into trouble and the episode ended on a major cliffhanger - slightly changed from the game - that saw Joel seriously injured and Ellie struggling to keep him alive. We won't spoil what happens next, but it looks like Ellie will take center stage next week as we learn more about her backstory.
Check out the new preview for season one, episode seven, titled "Left Behind," below:
