That recent episode of Last of Us made me cry. I had no idea what I was getting into when I started that episode.

I cried so much lmao. Was not expecting that amount of emotional damage.

That was such a great episode. Some of the best TV I've seen in a while.

I've seen so many bad tv adaptations of things I love that I honestly didn't have super high hopes for the show. That third episode blew me away, just some of the best television writing and directing I've seen in a very long time.

I thought I knew what was going to happen after the first two episodes were so close to the game.... instead got punched RIGHT in the feelings.

I haven't seen Sunday's episode yet but was aware of what was likely going to happen based on knowing how the game went

In the game, you only encounter a specific character in a few seconds of screen time and a few comments. Once they announced they cast someone for the series, and that the character is mentioned in advance in Episode 2 (which didn't happen in the game), I had a feeling they were going to add a good bit of backstory to make the outcome far more impactful.

My husband and I usually watch this on Mondays after dinner so we can have a good amount of eye bleach after to cheer us up. Yesterday was a long work day for him so we put it off to tonight, but he's going to trivia night tonight and will get home later. So, tomorrow night, maybe.
