Was it the bite or the knife that made Ellie immune? And the big question we need answered from the showrunners…when are we getting season 2??

It’s an emotionally crushing finale full of hard choices and desperate situations. The Fireflies may have gone off the deep end. We get to see the killer version of Joel people have been talking about all season. Did you catch all the video game actor cameos throughout the season?
We have a definitive answer as to how Ellie got Joel into the house. Get answers to more questions such as…. Is Ellie adopting Joel’s personality? Are the clickers too absent? Did David know about Tommy’s town? Can a clicker get rabies?
If you weren’t already convinced that Bella Ramsey is the perfect pick for Ellie, this episode will change your mind. As painful as it was to watch this episode the first time, it’s even creepier on a second watch. Grab a bowl of munchies, maybe somebody’s dad, and enjoy this episode of Savage Starlight!
You’ve got burning questions and A.Ron and Jim have some cool answers. How was the experience of watching this episode different for show-only watcher v. a game player? Does FEDRA kill people for not passing the vibe check? What is the safe transport speed behind a horse when you have a gut wound? What is the evolution of a runner?
In this DLC (downloadable content for the non-gamers) episode we get a close look at Ellie’s past and her relationship with Riley. Jim and A.Ron ponder the questions, “Would this have been better as a Christmas episode?” and “Why did it take so long for the infected to hear them?”. This was the calm before the storm. You’ll be wishing for more wonders as this season starts wrapping up and we have to say goodbye.
Being a teenager is never easy. It’s worse when you’re in FEDRA school and your best friend disappeared for three weeks. In this episode we take a step into Ellie’s past and her relationship with Riley. Though this episode takes a break from the main action, it is by no means devoid of thrills.
We’ve got a Bloater-size feedback bag this week. Turns out the show Jim pitched already exists in multiple iterations. For the last time, that is a menstrual cup, ok? Is the dog sniffing test equivalent to a PCR or home covid test? What’s the difference between Jackson and Jackson Hole? And if you think Jim and A.Ron are faking their enjoyment, go listen to Bald Move’s Mandalorian podcast.
The emotional damage is high this episode. After the horrors of clickers, raiders, and the Kansas City QZ, Joel and Ellie arrive in Jackson, Wyoming. There are family reunions and safety in this peaceful settlement, but there’s trouble in paradise. Joel considers parting ways with Ellie, and understandably, Ellie is upset. Tune into this podcast before we get the result of the cliffhanger in the next episode of The Last of Us.
