The latest episode of The Last of Us picks up where the last left off when Joel, Tess, and Ellie begin their adventures outside the Boston quarantine area.

After Joel shoots the infected, he triggers an army that comes to take them down. When she compares the bite marks near her own neck to Ellie’s, she finds that Ellie won’t get infected like Tess. Her Ellie mark is a small cut and her Tess mark is already red and inflamed.

Tess then begins pouring gasoline all over the floor, splattering it with grenades. She is determined to buy the time Joel and Ellie need to escape. Although they are hesitant to leave her at first, Joel eventually realizes that Tess is her destiny and drags Ellie out of her building. Tess then manages to light the lighter just as her infected begin to flow in and her infected begin to kiss her, causing the building to explode.
