The Last of Us continues to offer details and winks worth mentioning.
We all agree that The Last of Us series that is airing on HBO is a success. But we also agree that maybe there are some winks or easter egg that we will surely miss due to the speed with which they appear. In this case we are facing one of those details that if you blink, you miss it. If you want to know what we mean, stay with us.
Naughty Dog has been the developer of the video game on which the television series is based, that is why in the seventh episode that we have been able to see recently, a wink has been made to said developer. As you well know, the Naughty Dog logo is a footprint, a symbol that appears on Captain Kwong’s keys. This all happens while Ellie is getting told off for getting into a fight.
Episode 7 shows us the beginning of Ellie and with it a nice easter egg
As the Phaedra captain talks to Ellie, he gives her two options, continue on the path she is on and become a simple soldier in the army, or learn to behave and become an officer. These two options are represented with two objects, a cup and some keys. In this last object, the symbol of Naughty Dog appears in the form of a keychain. Of course, you will have to be very attentive if you want to see it, because it happens at the speed of light.
Perhaps this little wink occurs in this episode for something in particular, and that is that is the only one from the first season that is written solely by Neil Druckmann. Co-chairman and co-creator of The Last of Us, Neil is also the creative director of both games and of Left Behind, the DLC on which this episode is based.
This has only become a easter egg more than adds to the list of those already discovered in the previous chapters. For example, Tess’s lighter that is shown in episode 2, the bad joke book that we see in episode 4 or the Savage Starlight comic, where we can see Ellie and Sam enjoying the adventures of the comic. Although the series is not free of “mistakes”, here you can see the ones that have been discovered in episode 6.
We remain attentive to the next episodes, because be clear that they will continue to be full of references and nods to the game or even to the developer. As always, here we will tell you everything so that you are up to date without any problem.
