The next episode of The Last of Us is set to tackle the game’s “Left Behind” DLC, and explore the life of Ellie (Bella Ramsey) prior to the outbreak that sent the world into disarray. Warner Bros. Discovery recently released a batch of images to prepare fans for what they’ll see.
The new images showcase Ellie and Riley (played by Storm Reid in the episode) as they explore an abandoned mall, similar to the actions that take place in the DLC. Also included in the images are shots of Ellie laying in bed, as well as sitting in front of a desk and looking none too pleased.
