    The marriage scene is extra beautiful when you consider the world ended in 2003, one year before same sex marriage was legal in ANY of the US states. Bill and Frank followed their hearts instead of abiding by what the law would have been.

    It was Bill was taking care of the flowers that killed me. Their first big blowout fight was over Bill not caring what the place looked like, and he still probably didn't. But it was important to Frank. That's love.
    I also appreciate Ellie's fascination with the infected, because she's supposed to be infected right now, she's supposed to be one of them, so it makes sense that she has this morbid curiosity.

    The grumpy old man dying stuck in his ways is so overdone, this was really a breath of fresh air. A lot of games and movies kind of glamorize the badass survivalist who is ready for anything, so it's kind of cool to have this version of Frank swoop in and essentially be a badass because he cared enough to plant strawberries and flowers.

      I've seen shows that go over five seasons and don't give their queer characters half as much time together as these two fellas got in one episode. The only comparable relationship I've seen was Paige and Emily in Pretty Little Liars who -across SEVEN seasons got exactly one sex scene. And it was only in a dream. And it wasn't even one of their dreams, it was Emily's best friend's drug and sleep deprivation induced vision. They were fleshed out more than any other queer relationship I've seen on a mainstream series. Especially a teen mainstream series.

  • @ToMPaSHKoV
    @ToMPaSHKoV Před 9 měsíci +4

    The beauty of this episode is that it subverts our expectations. We've been conditioned through modern storytelling to fear everything, especially the benign, the innocuous. Dolls, children, children with dolls, dolls that look like children, all manner of seemingly harmless and familiar things, all trying to kill you. We expect that any kindness will be answered with violence, that any trust met with betrayal. We as an audience have been primed to fear the most faithful of friends, the most reliable family members - especially in this particular genre of horror - and when we encounter a story about caring and commitment amongst the ruins of a dying world, we don't know how to process it and it hits hard. "I was not expecting this" seems to be the most common refrain, with good reason. This is ostensibly a series about a 'zombie apocalypse' where anyone and everyone can go from being a kindred soul to a mortal threat in an instant and no one is to be trusted, especially other humans. Yet this particular tale is about trust, and love, both matrimonial and romantic. It's about allowing oneself to be vulnerable and in that vulnerability, finding those moments of existence that are both ephemeral and priceless. We expect a calamity, a personal buskin beyond the destruction of our civilization. We anticipate a type of misfortune that doesn't occur. During the worst catastrophe in the history of human kind, we bear witness the best thing to ever happen to these two humans, and it's profound; jarring. We await a devastation that never comes to pass; that expectation of tragedy is subverted by a story of love. We expect blood and destruction; what we get is a masterpiece about small, beautiful lives lived less ordinary.
    This is one of the best stories ever told on film, in my opinion, and it's based on a video game; we've come a long way from Pong.

    Ellie is dealing with trauma. She was attacked by the infected and she also lost at least 2 friends. So she has survivor's guilt and residual anger. She took out some of those emotions on the guy in the basement.
    As far as cooking killing the cordyceps fungus, in France in 1951 there was an outbreak of ergot poisoning in rye. More than 250 people were involved, including 50 people interned in asylums and 7 deaths. Ergot is a grain fungus that causes hallucinations in humans.

    Bill taught Frank how to survive, and Frank taught Bill how to live. In the game Frank ends up leaving to see the world because he's too extroverted, gets infected, and hangs himself before turning. So Bill is a lot more bitter about the one person he trusted leaving him.
    Either way Bill serves to show Joel the difference between surviving, and living. Bill is a survival expert, but what does he know about living until he opens up? In the game he shows Joel how bad he can become if he doesn't trust people or open up, in the show he shows Joel how good it can become and what he could've had with Tess. So either way Joel starts to open up.
    That's the major theme in the Last of Us. Surviving vs Living.

    • @jholmes553
      @jholmes553 Před 5 měsíci

      That's why the strawberry scene is so brilliant. The strawberry Bill was enjoying at that moment is the physical manifestation of the reward he got because he opened up to the right person. When someone puts up walls to defend themself from pain, they're also protecting themself from happiness. Only when they open up will they ever have the chance of being happy. Only then have they lived. And that is what Frank showed Bill. At this point, Joel can see it but is still apprehensive to the idea. But being exposed to such a positive outcome told him he could open up and things might work out.

    For those curious fans about the full letter of Bill including the last part, here it goes:
    August 29, 2023
    If you find this, please do not come into the bedroom. We left a window open so that the house wouldn't smell, but it will be probably a sight. I'm guessing you found this, Joel, because anyone else would have been electrocuted or blown up by one of my traps hehhehheh. Take anything you need. The bunker code is the same as the gate code but in reverse, do not make a mistake or you will also get blown to shit. I am not joking. Don't fuck that up hehhehheh.
    Anyway, I never liked you, but still, its like we're friends. Almost. And I respect you. So i'm gonna tell you something because you're probably the only person who'll understand. I used to hate the world, and I was happy when everyone died.
    But I was wrong because was one person worth saving. And that's what I did, I saved him, and then I protected him. That's why men like you and me are here. We have a job to do, and God help any motherfuckers who stand in our way. I leave you all of my weapons and equipment. Use them to keep Tess safe, until such time as you and she decide you've had enough. At that point, I recommend pairing 40 Vicodins with a nice Brunello.

    4 months late to this, but I needed to add how all though this is very different than the game. It serves the same narrative purpose, the game version showed Joel what he would become if he kept his heart closed off. The show version showed Joel the happiness he could achieve if he let people in again.

    I also wonder about periods during the apocalypse, too! The bit with the Tampax killed me.
    I think Ellie killing the clicker can seem morbid, but she does also ask Joel if it's hard to kill them when you remember they're people. I felt like this was mostly her trying to adjust to the world she lives in, but you could also see it as a mercy killing.
    There are so many subtle things about the Bill/Frank story that mess me up. The crying at the piano, the hands hesitantly on the back, "love it the way I want to," the strawberries, baaaaaaaah. I can't.

    Ellie has a lot of anger and trauma already from her being bit and Tess's death. And you forget she is a military orphan/child soldier student. She is trained to fight though hasn't yet had real fights. She's only sadistic if you judge her by OUR world. You have to judge her by HER world.

    Yeast itself is a form of fungus, and together with the flour will continue the high-temp "baking process" even after taking out of the oven. That's why it's reccommended to wait for bread to cool before eating. Since the codryceps mutated, it may also be much more resistant to high temps? 🤔

    They said Frank's illness was incurable before the pandemic, so I took it as something like ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's, etc.
    The last shot of the open window really hit me. It was like Bill and Frank's spirit was watching them drive away, from their POV. And Pedro's reaction, as he looked at her as she read the letter, was just perfect. Waterfalls of tears. Also liked the parallel of how Bill and Frank fell in love to Linda Ronstadt, and then Ellie and Joel are driving away listening to it as well, their relationship softening bit by bit.
    Nick Offerman was brilliant casting, couldn't imagine anyone better. And he killed it.

I think anyone playing or replaying the game after seeing this episode, will find themselves seeing through Bill's tough veneer, and recognise fully his soft, emotional, wounded soul.

  • @mandipandi303

    This episode made me cry so hard that I was worried my neighbors would come check on me. I'm not exaggerating. People don't talk enough about how significant it is that Bill immediately admits, "There's no girl," to a stranger. Frank could've been a raging homophobe who would've wanted to harm him for being gay. There were several real world examples of that happening to people at that time. Bush was trying to ban gay marriage then too, so this had to be intentional timing on the show's part. The fact that Frank cries when they first kiss, and Bill is so hesitant at first but reciprocates the kiss quickly despite how paranoid he is, shows just how lonely and starved for love both men have been. The showrunners have said Frank had MS or ALS and already knew about it. I definitely would've done the same as Frank and Bill at the end. As a gay wheelchair user with a degenerative neuromuscular disease, this episode hit me HARD. The front door closed because Bill left the bedroom window open so the house wouldn't smell, and Joel trying to open the bedroom door created a cross breeze that made the front door close. This was the happy ending Bill and Frank deserved, and I'm so glad I didn't have that fate from the game poisoning my expectations.
