The Last of Us HBO

We're heading towards HBO's finale of its The Last of Us TV adaptation, but episode seven took a step back in time for a large flashback focusing on Ellie's relationship with Riley. Appearances from Joel are kept to the start and end of the hour-long episode, allowing the two girls to steal the show with some nighttime fun in the mall.

Episode seven remains faithful to DLC Left Behind, with the two friends playing in the arcade, sharing a kiss, and then dancing in the costume shop wearing masks. We all knew the episode would have a sad ending, but those expectations probably won't put a stop to the tears flowing for some viewers.
