It’s no secret that season considered one of HBO’s The Final of Us was very devoted to the online game it’s primarily based on. There have been some modifications, additions, and tweaks, however by way of general intent and story, the sport and the present had been very related. That might lead followers to imagine subsequence seasons of the present could be equally devoted to the much more emotional and surprising second recreation, The Final of Us Half II. Nonetheless, in a brand new interview, co-showrunner Craig Mazin mentioned that won’t really be the case, particularly in regard to arguably the largest spoiler within the recreation.

Andrew Callaghan Talks ‘This Place Guidelines’

When you’ve performed The Final of Us Half II, you understand what we’re speaking about, however for those who haven’t and also you need to try to stay unspoiled, look away.

For probably the most half, The Final of Us Half II hinges on the actions of Joel, performed by Pedro Pascal within the present. Years after the occasions of the second season, a lady named Abby, who’s the daughter of the physician Joel killed saving Ellie, tracks him down and (final probability) kills him. Joel’s homicide then turns into Ellie’s essential cause to set out and discover Abby. She needs revenge.

Talking to Esquire, Pascal himself appears to assume that’s what’s going to occur. “It wouldn’t make sense to observe the primary recreation so faithfully solely to stray severely from the trail,” he mentioned. “So, yeah, that’s my trustworthy reply.” His co-star, Bella Ramsey, mentioned one thing related. “If that does happen within the present,” Ramsey mentioned, “I don’t know that I’m emotionally prepared for it.”

Since The Final of Us is predicated primarily on the 2 video games, and actors signal contracts for particular lengths of time, one would assume each Pascal and Ramsey know if the present will kill Joel or not. However, perhaps not. In the identical Esquire piece, Mazin solid some doubt on that taking place. “This must be pretty apparent to anybody by now, however I don’t worry killing characters,” Mazin mentioned. “However the necessary factor to notice is that neither Neil [Druckmann, Mazin’s co-showrunner] nor I really feel constrained by the supply materials.”

That’s a really diplomatic means of doubtless hiding the largest spoiler for a extremely anticipated second season of considered one of HBO’s greatest latest hits, and Mazin actually isn’t mendacity that he doesn’t really feel “constrained by the supply materials.” But when sure parts of that supply materials had been to be altered, it might change the story totally. The Final of Us Half II shouldn’t be the identical if Joel stays alive. It simply isn’t. He’s going to die. He has to.

And but, whereas the act comes pretty early within the recreation, you’d think about that’s the place a change might come. Mazin has said that the second recreation is more likely to be break up into two seasons, and one might very simply see a world the place Joel’s demise turns into the cliffhanger main into the ultimate season. That might be a method to give followers what they need—extra Pedro Pascal—whereas additionally staying true to the sport.

So, what do you assume? Will Joel die on The Final of Us present? If that’s the case, when? And is there a world through which The Final of Us is The Final of Us with out that taking place?
