In the video, Executive Producers Craig Mazin, Neil Druckmann, and others talk to us about how it works the second episode aired yesterday. Obviously, you might come across some movie spoilers if you haven’t watched the episode yet.
In particular, the video discusses the first meeting between Joel (Pedro Pascal), Ellie (Bella Ramsey) and Felkers, the most notorious infected people in the universe created by Naughty Dog. Precisely for this reason, Mazen shows us, that it was so important for the production to recreate it accurately, to the point of satisfying even the high levels of people who played The Last of Us.
Mazen and Druckmann also returned to talk about the way infection spreads in the world of The Last of Us, which is not done through germs as in the game, but rather through tendrils. Space also for personality theisplayed by Anna Torv.
To stay on topic, ratings for Episode Two are currently very high, as the success of the HBO series had a positive impact on sales of The Last of Us Part One, which increased by 238% in the past week in the UK.
