The Last of Us 2 Trailer Hints That Joel is Dead in the Sequel

Naughty Dogs has finally debuted the trailer for The Last of Us 2 during the PSX 2017. The trailer can be described as emotional and hauntingly beautiful. It was also long enough for fans to come up with new theories.

The Last of Us 2 is a tragic game!

The Last of Us 2 follows the story of Joel and Ellie in their journey across post-apocalyptic US of A. The first part happened in Boston and the main character was Joel. This Last of Us character has the sole responsibility of bringing Ellie safely to an unknown location.

As they traveled through the wasteland, both of them had to battle mutated humans that became cannibals and other sorts of monsters. In the sequel, no one knows for sure what they are against with. Based on the trailer, however, Ellie was filled with hatred and the question is “why?”

Joel is dead?… And other theories!

In the Last of Us 2 trailer, Ellie declared with quiet anger how she will hunt and kill some people one by one after Joel asked him what’s next. Before that, Ellie was singing a very haunting song with all her blood and bruises as Joel made his way inside.

As Joel entered, he passed by dead bodies along the way. All the rooms seemed to be filled with freshly killed corpses and blood covered the floor. Joel found Ellie in a room at the end of the hall. She was crying while singing and a dead body was on the floor but the identity was concealed.

Fans are guessing that the dead body was Joel’s and that Ellie killed all the people there as a revenge. Then Joel asking her a question might be a ghost or a figment of Ellie’s imagination, some sort of a defense mechanism to deal with her loss.

Ashley Johnson, The Last of Us 2 actress who voiced Ellie, said that Ellie has had  hard times. Moreover, Last of Us 2 Director Neill Druckmann said that the sequel will be about hate. Whatever source made Ellie hate that much will be revealed in the coming days ahead of The Last of Us 2.
