Ellie's haunting quip in HBO's The Last of Us has gone over the heads of a few viewers

Ellie's haunting quip in HBO's The Last of Us has gone over the heads of a few viewers ...

Ellie's book of puns, 'No Pun Intended,' was included on HBO, as well as a preview for episode 5 and confirmation that there will be no episodes left in season 1.

Joel and Ellie met Henry and Sam while the four of them hid from Kathleen and the Hunters in Episode 4.

The Last of Us series, created by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann for HBO, is based on the 2013 video game of the same name by Naughty Dog. Despite the fact that it is a game, the series follows smuggler Joel who must take Ellie along to a post-apocalyptic America populated with infected animals.

Ellie's scarecrow ploy is explained.

Joel and Ellie are sleeping outside during an early segment of the series in episode 4, and just as Joel is trying to sleep, Ellie asks: "What did you just do?"

Joel replies to the joke with the correct answer, to Ellie's surprise: "Because he was exceptional in his field."

The joke refers to a scarecrow, a mannequin placed in farmer's fields meant to deter birds from eating crops.

A "field" can also be used as a synonym for "outstanding."

Due to his minor mumbling, the UK's streaming platform Sky Go does not include subtitles.
