The Last of Us episode two finally unveiled the clickers and they were every bit as terrifying as we'd been hoping for as Joel (Pedro Pascal), Ellie (Bella Ramsey), and Tess (Anna Torv) found themselves fighting for their lives against a pair of infected that were eager to take a bite out of our heroes... and, unfortunately, they succeeded.
As expected, Tess was bitten by one of the monsters and, in an explosive departure from the game, chose to sacrifice herself to give Joel & Ellie enough time to escape from the horde that was coming their way.
With Tess' final words - "Save who you can save." - resonating in his ears, Joel decides to continue their mission and take Ellie West, and it looks like their next pit stop will take them to Bill (Nick Offerman). While we know how the episode should play out, based on the new promo, it looks like we'll be getting a lot more backstory on the survivalist and his relationship with Frank (Murray Bartlett).
