On Monday morning the grand finale that we have been waiting for so long will take place. The first season of The Last of Us series will end with the ninth episode. HBO has already shown a preview in the form of a trailer that anticipates that we will have strong emotions for the 43-minute chapter that we will see on the screen.
ATTENTION SPOILERS: from this point on, the plot of the series, that of the video games and that of Uncharted 4 will be discussed without any filter.
Recent events have shown us how Ellie kills David in a very violent way to be rescued by Joel. As we can see in the images of the ninth chapter, the plot will take us to the hospital of the Fireflies of the Final leg of Naughty Dog’s title. However, there is a really important detail.
The official account of the series The Last of Us on Twitter has shown a clear and sharp image of Anna, the character played by Ashley Johnson. We are talking about Ellie’s mother, who never appeared in the video games, but we will have scenes with her at the end of the series. Curiosity occurs with the fact that Johnson has been the actress in charge of giving life to Ellie in the virtual versions, for which we will have two Ellies on screen at the same time.

Connection to Uncharted 4
And this revelation has served to confirm an Uncharted 4 easter egg that had no answer, until now. Neil Druckmann, director of the Nathan Drake adventure, has confirmed that a poster we see at the end of the game shows Ellie’s mother. Specifically the one that appears in the room of Cassie Drake, the daughter of Elena and Nate, which shows a comic called The Last of Us: American Daughters.
There has never been such a product and it shows a woman in a gas mask, pregnant and carrying a revolver. For a long time it was speculated that it was a teaser for The Last of Us Part II, but we have finally learned thanks to Druckmann that she is the mother of the protagonist.
