The Last of Us finale is approaching for TLOU Season 1 and HBO star Bella Ramsey claims the finale is going to be hotly debated by TLOU fans globally.

HBO’s The Last of Us TV show is already nearing the end of Season 1, as Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey’s Joel and Ellie face choices harder than they imagined. The show, based on the titular Naughty Dog franchise, has proven to be a smash hit with fans, though this could change according to former Game of Thrones star Bella Ramsey. Now, Ramsey claims The Last of Us finale will test the limits of viewers everywhere, as The Last of Us Season 1 comes to an end.

With how great The Last of Us TV show has been, we’re sure that many of us are already anticipating The Last of Us Season 2 release date. However, until then, a recent interview with Bella Ramsey via Vogue UK details the actor’s perspective on the finale: “It’s going to divide people massively, massively.” Ramsey isn’t giving away any specifics just yet on how the finale will shape up, but TLOU fans will know that the ending isn’t going to be easy for Joel and Ellie to overcome. Especially if it is as violent as Ramsey proclaims it is.

Elaborating on the next episode, Where We Are In Need, Ramsey says of the episode’s gruelling action that “it was exhausting […] but those were some of my favourite days on set. That sounds really masochistic, but it’s the scenes that break me that I love the most in a way.”

Viewers can get hyped for TLOU episode 8 already, as the showrunners have begun teasing a particularly visceral episode for Pedro Pascal’s Joel. Avid fans of the franchise will get a kick out of it too, as acclaimed voice actor Troy Baker is set to make an appearance as a brand-new character created specifically for the show.
