    As a gay man, I can’t speak for the entire community but for myself.. this episode meant more to me in terms of representation than anything I’ve ever seen in mainstream entertainment. It was so human, so real, two people who love each other facing the challenges that many of us face in real life - apocalypse aside. I have absolutely no critiques for it, one of the best and most important pieces of television ever imo.

    I’m a gay man Grace and this is honestly the first time I’ve ever felt truly comfortable and truly ‘seen’ having a gay relationship represented on screen. It was beautiful and heartbreaking. It would have shattered me to see Bill continue on without Frank, their death was poetic and the inspiration for Joel to fight for Ellie. There would’ve been more raiders and Bill was too old to protect Frank; they already relied on Joel to save them. I would’ve spent every second of every other episode worried about them 😂 I’m perfectly happy with how their story ended x

    • Michael Kripal

      Completely agree. My partner and I had never seen a gay relationship we could relate to more than this.

      Yellow Sweatshirt  Před 3 měsíci +13

      Great way to put this. I'm queer too and while I absolutely loathe the "bury your gays" trope, I really didn't feel like that was the case here. Bill and Frank were beautiful people, and they wanted their death to be the same.

    • Jacob Tackett
      Jacob Tackett Před 3 měsíci +12

      @Yellow Sweatshirt absolutely Bill didn’t want to live without Frank. Also loved that they didn’t show their bedroom afterwards!

    • Yellow Sweatshirt

      @Jacob Tackett totally I think they handled that entire situation really respectfully

    Something to keep in mind is the world stopped in 2003, society was a decade+ away from Gay marriage. Its what makes the two of them realizing their connection so beautiful, and Bills fear so real. I also makes the marriage scene so much more touching.

  • Ben
    Ben Před 3 měsíci +275

    I’m not so upset about it being in line with the “bury your gays” trope, because honestly in a world like this, there’s not much happier of an ending for anyone. They got it pretty well off, and they were satisfied

    • Mikaela decker
      Mikaela decker Před 3 měsíci +11

      Yeah also it made sense and was moving

    • Justin Beagley

    • Mikaela decker

      They lived 20 yrs of happy lives together in a zombie apocalypse. That's a win.

    • Raynie •••
      Raynie ••• Před 3 měsíci +1

      Yes, exactly this. Yah, okay, the gays died, but I think they got as happy an ending as anyone could possibly hope for in the LoU world, so it hits different than a "bury your gays" trope.

  • WanTan8888
    WanTan8888 Před 3 měsíci +141

    its not about zombies at all, thats what made the last of us so great. its really a story about joel and ellie and people. It is awesome to see people new to this story learning its ways for the first time

  • Blag Cog
    Blag Cog Před 3 měsíci +523

    I think the "bury your gays" thing doesn't quite apply to a show like The Last of Us.
    I don't want to spoil anything but all I can say is that this world gives no one mercy, and they got a significantly better life than most in this world.

    • SocialPurgatory
      SocialPurgatory Před 3 měsíci +40

      Yes they found their happiness and held tight to it as long as they could in a cliche love in a literal hopeless world kind of way. It was beautiful

    • James McInnis
      James McInnis Před 3 měsíci +12

      I agree. "Bury your gays" is largely suffused in misery, which was actively avoided here when the characters decided to go out together on their own terms. Furthermore, the BYG trope suggests that death or the loss of a loved one is an irreconcilable hardship for the surviving partner. I get the sense that HAD Bill elected to continue living, the show would've taken steps to demonstrate that his time together with Frank was a blessing, and not a curse that would plague him for the rest of his days.

    • LAMusing
      LAMusing Před 3 měsíci +9

      Yes - they had 20 years of a loving relationship, living full lives on their own terms. And ending it the same way. Beautiful

    The Last of Us Parts I AND II are about love first and foremost. It's about the lengths people go to to protect and preserve who they love. And the depths they're willing to sink to to gain retribution for love that is taken from them. This episode NAILED that

    • Sticks of Truth
      Sticks of Truth Před 3 měsíci +13

      Part 2 is actually about hate. These are the words of Neil Druckmann.

    • Beatness
      Beatness Před 3 měsíci +11

      Mmm that’s certainly a theme, but I think these stories are too complex to be summed up in a single theme. Especially part 2.

    This was one of the most beautiful episodes of television I’ve ever seen. By the end I was a weeping, ugly crying mess! Nick Offerman! Nick frickin Offerman! I had no idea the man was capable of such range. Parks & Rec is one of my all time favorite shows and his Ron Swanson is just legendary comedic gold! But wow, I was not expecting this from him! As a gay man, it was beautiful to see such an honest, genuine queer love story where I cared deeply about the characters. I’m not mad at the ending at all. Bill and Frank went out on their terms and no one else’s and that’s how it should be. Fantastic episode.

    • Lavar Edwards
      Lavar Edwards Před 3 měsíci +10

      I have never seen Nick Offerman act like this. He completely blew my mind and his role out of the park. I wept ugly tears, such an emotional but well acted episode. This episode was unexpected but I will treasure it forever.

    • Austin

    urwrong Před 3 měsíci +432

    I was shocked they changed so much, would’ve loved to have seen Ellie & Bill go at each other…but Bill served his same purpose from the game. In the game he was an example for Joel how not to be, Bill was an uncaring loner and because of that was losing his mind, it was showing what could happen to Joel if he completely cut himself off from the world. In the show however, Bill is the opposite and is actually inspirational for Joel and shows him how he should be, I thought it was beautiful.

    • TM

    Being gay… this broke me. I’m still crying. This was beautiful and everything I wanted. I can’t express how much I loved this episode. This and Heartstopper is how you do good lgbtq representation. I don’t think I’ll ever recover 😭

    I love that a mainstream show portrayed the "conspiracy theorist" character as actually being 100% correct & prepared

    • Sean Smith
      Sean Smith Před 3 měsíci +73

      When Ellie was checking out his stockpile in the basement and said Bill was a genius, I genuinely laughed out loud. Such an opposite reaction to what people would say about someone like Bill in today's world.

    harrison Před 3 měsíci +233

    i do wanna mention that i'm gay, and i really don't wanna watch bad endings for gay characters/romances, and i'm satisfied with bill/frank's ending! it is very sad, but i'm comforted by the fact that they loved each other for 20 years, grew old together, and decided to peacefully die together. it didn't leave me wishing things went different for them, because it seems like they had a pretty decent life all things considered!
    i don't speak for all gay people but i wouldn't say this is at all egregious. bill and frank probably fared better than most other couples

    • Rizzo

      Yeah, I thought their story was fantastic. They had a long life together and the fact that Bill decided to die with Frank was beautiful because he loved him that much.

    Couldn't even be sad cause they had an incredible life. I was so scared they were going to kill Bill or Frank before but letting them live a long life all things considered was beautiful.

    Not every character needs a spin off. Also, Bill dying by his own volition with his lover is way better than EVENTUAL death by infection. You’re too focused on keeping their characters alive.

    • Toby Dion
      Toby Dion Před 3 měsíci +1

      @roxiebaby There's more to come, it's not revealed yet but just because these died before meeting the main characters it don't mean that will be all. A lot of people die in this story, it's tragic, and often shocking, but that's because of the ruthless world.
      These two characters grew old together, and they had a much larger story than the original story. They were given a even bigger life with this show, and a interesting ending on their own terms, and not because of infected or raiders.

  • Lewis Cook
    Lewis Cook Před 3 měsíci +61

    The relationship between Bill and Frank was such a beautiful thing to see and their final day was heartbreaking to watch.

  • Julian Vel
    Julian Vel Před 3 měsíci +21

    I recommend listening to the official companion podcast for the show. Neil and Craig spoke about the Bury Your Gays trope, and they had lots of community consultation when deciding how the story would unfold. Considering Frank was already dead when Joel and Ellie encountered him in the game, seeing Bill and Frank grow old together and go out on their own terms was very touching. It gave life to them that neither character was afforded in the game. I can sleep peacefully knowing Bill, although a fictional character, isn’t somewhere bitter at love, loss, and protection as burdens. He died happy with the love of his life. ❤

  • Jose Laynes
    Jose Laynes Před 3 měsíci +39

    Given the story we see in the game, I found myself doubting of Frank real intentions with Bill, I was really worried at any point he was gonna betray him, but after the strawberry scene and seeing how everything unfolded after that I found that it was awesome how they gave so much deep to this secondary characters and also changing the game in such a great way. This episode alone deserves every award

    • John Smith
      John Smith Před 3 měsíci +1

      I was waiting for the betrayal too, so never trusted the guy or warmed to him. Kinda ruined the episode for me. 😞

    • Marcos Nonato
      Marcos Nonato Před 3 měsíci

      I also expected betrayal. Not just from Frank, but Joel and Tess too. And that's what made me like the episode so much. Other apocalypse shows focus on showing how humans can be cruel, but for a moment we saw that not all human are monsters and not everyone lives in despare in this world.

  • BidM142
    BidM142 Před 3 měsíci +818

    Ellie is the LGBTQ lead of the franchise. Obviously they haven’t said that yet, but they laid the groundwork in ep 2 of Ellie saying she has no boyfriend. So I’m okay with Bill & Frank’s story being self contained because it was so beautifully written, directed, and performed

    • Aussie Legend
      Aussie Legend Před 3 měsíci +35

      Yeah I'm surprised that's not brought up (as I think she knows? as you say it isn't clear in the show yet [and wasn't in the original game until later]), and of course gay men & women aren't interchangable but this is certainly not the last we've seen of LGBT+ characters (and I have bad news, it is an apocalypse so no one is going to have a good time even the queer ones).

    • Be a Dragon 🐲
      Be a Dragon 🐲 Před 3 měsíci +12

      I was happy with the episode, it was beautifully told and ultimately they had a long life together and went out on their own terms. Tess was taken out too soon as well but I think we will get more looks back at them as the story develops. The themes of the story are about love, loss and grief. We all have to accept loss with love in life but it’s how we all process it and relate to others , some shut down and others try to open up to the possibilities as we move forward in life. ❤️🥰🙏

    • NightHunter
      NightHunter Před 3 měsíci +5

      yeah and spoilers here but they cast someone who will show up in Ellie’s backstory and if you know the DLC you know what I mean

    • Tech Citizen
      Tech Citizen Před 3 měsíci +8

      Yeah Ellie is the LGBTQ lead and the first hint is mention of Riley in Episode 1. By the end of the game for TLOU Part 2, multiple LGBTQ characters will have survived.

  • BlackFlagsNRoses
    BlackFlagsNRoses Před 3 měsíci +22

    I appreciate this deviation it was so beautiful and sets up Joel and Ellie. Joel is even worse than Bill, as a loner. Tess said “I never asked you to feel the same for me.” While he was fond of Tess he did not let himself be so attached so as to be in love. Joel still hasn’t found purpose, someone to live for, and we know that by the end Joel will find purpose again.

  • simpleplanfan011
    simpleplanfan011 Před 3 měsíci +74

    While I’m sad that we never got to see Ellie and Joel interact with Bill, I loved seeing Bill and Frank’s relationship play out. I’m especially glad they didn’t follow the game by having Frank try to leave Bill, die trying, and leaving him that spiteful note. Overall a pretty compelling episode and more fantastic changes. I can’t wait to see what they do next!

  • Colton McCoy
    Colton McCoy Před 3 měsíci +41

    I’ve never cried more during an episode of television than I did during this episode. I think the way they did it wasn’t offensive and if anything will be a step-forward with acceptance with 2 characters falling in love organically and making us attached to both of them.

    It works without zombies because its more joel and ellie's story. Their story is that good. Im kinda bummed ellie missed out on meeting bill like the game, but they did better than the game imo.
    Fleshing out bill and frank was awesome. So much better than what i got from the game in that section.
    Sadly, this isnt the saddest thing that will happen this season if they still follow the game

    • Favio Avalos

  • tiago
    tiago Před 3 měsíci +125

    The “kill the gays” is a real thing in films and shows, but in this case i really saw that in a different way. In the game, Bill and Frank’s history is slightly mentioned in a letter, and the fact that they were a couple was open to interpretation. So, even though they die at the end, i enjoyed seeing their relationship expanded and mentioned very clearly. They made big changes from the source material, but it makes sense. Bill’s part in the game works very well as a gameplay, but the adaptation gives more depth on a series, now that we can watch from other points of view, and not only Joel’s. To this point, im really impressed with what they are doing adapting the game.

    • Raymond Sims
      Raymond Sims Před 3 měsíci +4

      This episode was complete filler rubbish in my opinion lad🤷‍♂️there was absolutely no reason to have ever introduced bill and frank. They gave them the whole episode, to kill them the same bloody episode!! That was a complete waste of time. Idgaf about two lads being killed off in the same episode they were introduced. And if this was any other tv show they would get killed for this extremely forced super filler episode. I think it was a 3/10 at best

    • Alëx

      @Raymond Sims the show's name is the last of us not Joel and elllie's adventure , the purpose of this episode is to tell a story about some of those remains to be the last of us that found Love and connection in a hopeless world

    • BlackFlagsNRoses
      BlackFlagsNRoses Před 3 měsíci +15

      @Raymond Sims it was more thematic about Joel and Ellie. Bill found purpose after being a cynic and loner, it’s a mirror about Joel finding purpose and someone to live for

    For me, the first scene that seemed to point to Ellie having dark tendencies is when Joel attacks the guard in the first episode and is pummeling him repeatedly. If you watch her in the background her look reads as absolute fascination, as least that was my take. She is really soaking it in. I haven't played the game, but when I saw that scene I was like ok she's dangerous. She is kinda stalking in the background like a cat ready to pounce. It was very well done. Also, this episode was great.

    Grace The last of us is not focused around zombies. It’s about how living in a post apocalyptic world changes people. You see the relationship between Joe and Ellie but also the people they come across… yes, episode was a big departure from the game but it’s more of a personal story between Frank and Bill. Frank commit suicide in the game with not much backstory given other than the notes scattered across the game, and some brief interaction with Bill. So overall I enjoyed this episode and if others don’t like it. It’s OK.

    Bill's letter to Joel at the end 😭
    Didn't mind the changes. We don't get to see any of Bill & Frank's relationship in the game, just through extra material. Loved getting to see them be together and get a bittersweet ending

  • aboveaveragejoe
    aboveaveragejoe Před 3 měsíci +75

    I don't see this as a tragic love story. I cried at the end too, but the story as a whole was beautiful. As a gay man, I don't need them to overstay their welcome just to check a box. If they traveled with Joel, Frank probably would've been infected. Sad in a less satisfying way.
    Without meeting Bill's family, you can tell he grew up in an environment that would not be okay with him being gay. It's so interesting that Bill's life got better after the apocalypse. As he says “I was never afraid before I met you."

    Grace, YOU made me cry multiple times watching this review and it's just one of the reasons BTT is my favorite CHclip channel. I know you're not overly emotional so it hits that much harder when something moves you like this. It's so cliché at this point, but you said it early on, this is a great representation of love is love. Beautifully written, acted and directed. Thank you for sharing your emotions with us. ❤️

    I love that it was there own choice to go out the way they did. In this series, a lot of people's lives get taken from them. It is so powerful in this dangerous world that they had a different choice. That people got to have a life and have love. It makes it more powerful to me. That the human side to all of us is never really gone. ❤️

    I really expected Bill to wake up in the morning as if his dose was not strong enough. And Joel and Ellie show up right before Bill tried to commit suicide. That how I thought it was going to end. So Bill would still be around.

    It was a beautiful moving episode. Grace, you summed it up perfectly and I too would have loved to see more of Bill and Frank, but that’s a testament to how well written and acted their characters are. So happy to see Tess again. I hope we see more flashbacks filling out Tess and Joel’s story. I started to bawl when On the Nature of Daylight was playing. It’s a piece of music that has been used so often it’s almost a cliche. Still gets me every time.

      She asked why it was necessary to kill them off instead of keeping them around, and then unknowingly answered her own question at that time stamp. The pure emotion you get from telling a story like this is essential. We’ll get more well rounded LGBT characters and romances in this show, but the writers only had one chance to tell this specific story that will resonate with people for years to come.

      Omg the game is very emotional. From the same music they used, the human interactions, and relationships. Before you play the game, you think you're getting a cool zombie survival game, but you get this very deep cinematic story. I'm glad they are doing the game justice even with the pleasant changes.

    The whole "kill your gays trope" thing is so ridiculous. Bill and Frank are side characters. Wanting characters to stay alive or remain present in the show despite the story and their role within it is absurd.

  • Nerrad

    Joel’s accent coming and going is very relatable. Especially when he is upset. Most people I know that have “hidden accents” always let them slip when they are either really excited or upset or stressed. So I fully believe his southern accent slipping in and out.

      Very true. I totally agree with that. It happens to me all the time. Lol

    • little lord fuckleroy

    talking about episode 3 in comparison with the game most of the differences i liked.
    i loved how they developed the relationship between Bill and Frank. and i also liked to see the lunch between Bill, Frank, Tess and Joel. Bill and Frank actors were super well chose on my opinion.

    Hey Grace! The part around 23:20 when you’re talking about the open window and the curtain in the wind (and you start to tear up a little lol) that is the start game scene! Like when you’re playing a video game and the title screen comes up and you have to “press start” that’s the shot! When they racked focus to it I was like “Dude!!” it’s a nice touch and it makes that image so much more valuable.

  • Tiffany King

    I feel a mix of love and appreciation for this episode but also really craving to see more of Joel, Ellie and the infected. I wish they had been in this episode more so we could see more of the bond that will grow between Joel and Ellie. Definitely wish there was more infected/baddies at this point to heighten the danger. I know it’s still early and I do see the groundwork being laid, but I worry it won’t have the same impact at the end. Hopefully they get it right. I’m looking forward to the episode at the lodge and the finale (of course). If this episode crushed you hopefully the last will tear you apart.
    However I loved this episode on it’s own merits. It was a beautiful story and, knowing how grim this world is, I will cherish the tenderness and humanity we saw in it. I’m happy to see it resonating with so many people. The acting was superb and the set work was stunning. I don’t mind it being different as long as the core of the story is still the same. This elevated it but hopefully they don’t deviate too much.

    I was shocked by this episode it didn't go like the video game but it was phenomenally changed for the better I loved it it turned out better than I thought it would especially not knowing much about Frank this was an awesome change I preferred it I wish we would have got Bill and Ellie bickering at each other like in the game jibber jabbering at each other messing with each other but hey we can't have everything still phenomenal job! ❤️ The actors that played Bill and Frank did a phenomenal job bringing these two characters to life in their own way with the changes that they brought to it producing this episode by far I loved it! It remind me of Romeo and Juliet type of idea😎 type of trope I find it offensive to kill off the gays but in a way that's poor taste ! They did this type of two character death and thought are gay very well done and tasteful and it remind me of Romeo and Juliet type of love story The love was so strong that they did not want to be apart from each other! ❤️
