What to Expect in Episode 2 of the Last of Us?
The name of the next episode is “Infected.” In the first episode, we met Joel and Sarah, who is a father and daughter. In 2003, a virus started to spread. Sarah was trying to run away when a soldier shot and killed her. After 20 years, the virus has caused trouble all over the world, and Joel now works as a smuggler in a quarantine zone in Boston.
After a deal goes wrong, he has to sneak Ellie to the Massachusetts State House. The two are caught by a soldier, but they kill him and get away. Ellie is also infected with the virus, but its effects are only now becoming clear.
In the next episode, we’ll find out if Joel and Ellie are able to get out of the city. There will likely be more challenges and threats that could kill them. As their relationship grows stronger, Joel may start to think of Ellie as his daughter.
