Breakdown and Easter Eggs for HBO's The Last Of Us ...

The Last Of Us episode 7 is now available on HBO and HBO GO (HBO Max in the United States) and you may view it here.

Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann direct the writing and executive production of The Last Of Us, based on Naughty Dog's critically acclaimed video game of the same name that was developed exclusively for PlayStation platforms. Other production companies include PlayStation Productions, Word Games, and Naughty Dog.

The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization was ravaged by the Holocaust. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of a harsh quarantine zone. Both must travel the United States and depend on each other for survival.

Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Anna Torv as Tess, Nick Offerman as Bill, Melanie Lynskey as Riley, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, Lamar Johnson as Henry, Keivonn Woodard as Sam, and Elaine Miles as Florence. Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker are also on the bill.

We were lucky enough to be the only Malaysian media to participate in interviews with Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, Merle Dandridge, and Gabriel Luna, as well as our spoiler-free review of the whole season.
