The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic HBO series BBased on the game developed by Naughty Dog, the series tells the story of Joel, a smuggler tasked with escorting teenager Ellie in a post-apocalyptic United States. In the series there are also Joel's younger brother Tommy, resistance leader Marlene, and Joel's smuggling partner Tess. Many fans wondered if it would really be a good idea to make the series, the question was whether HBO would make a faithful adaptation of the game or if it would be another work done anyway.

In this new episode of The Last of Us we can find one of Bella Ramsey's best performances, she manages to extrapolate the feelings that the character carries to the maximum, after all, the eighth episode is simply magical.
