Once Again, 'The Last of Us' Delivers One of the Best Gay TV Episodes

Editor's note: this post contains spoilers for Season 1, Episode 7 of HBO's The Last of Us, "Left Behind."

Once again, The Last of Us has shown us how to do a truly great gay episode of television.

In the latest episode, Ellie (Bella Ramsey) is trying to save Joelโ€™s (Pedro Pascal) life after he was stabbed, and weโ€™re treated to flashbacks showing her life before she got bit and went off on her journey.

The flashbacks begin when Ellie starts to act out at the FEDRA school she was attending, and it seems to happen whenever other students mention a specific friend she used to have. Then later, when we see her back in her dorm, thereโ€™s an empty bed across from her. That friend who left turns out to be Riley (Storm Reid), a character fans of the video game will know well!
