The Last of Us HBO

After episode seven's trip back in time, we return to the terrifying present in The Last of Us episode eight. Largely covering the sinister plot thread featuring David and his crew, things turn pretty ugly in this intense, fraught chapter.

Caring for an injured Joel, Ellie's looking after him, hunting for food and desperately trying to help him recover. While some scenes from the game are missing, the broad strokes are all here. If you've played the game, you'll know what's coming — it's a brutal episode, with things not ending well for David and his followers. Fans will be pleased to see the cameo performance from Troy Baker, who of course plays Joel in the games.
