Happy Wine Wednesday! Candi and I are back this week to discuss episodes 4 and 5 of HBO's The Last of Us. Given that episode 4 was mostly setup, we thought it was best to package our discussion about this two-episode arc together.
We discuss all things Kathleen, including speculation about her origin story, why her people were so loyal to her, and how her unraveling led to some terrible leadership decisions that literally came back to bite her. Of course we applaud the amazing performances by Lamar Johnson (Henry) and Keivonn Woodard (Sam). Give us Keivonn as Miles Morales!
As we've seen in past episodes, the friends they meet along the way will absolutely shape the dynamics between Ellie and Joel. We talk about Ellie getting an opportunity to be in the protector role and what we think is next for her and Joel.
From Kathleen ignoring the infected to Ellie shooting bullets and an oversized truck, there were quite a few recipients of the hustling backwards awards this week - hence the episode title.
Thanks so much for listening! Friendly reminder - we drink, we know things, we use adult language, and we have a good time.
