‘The Last of Us’ on HBO will debut in just a few short weeks. Prior to the adaptation’s much awaited premiere in January, the series based on the acclaimed horror video game franchise of the same name has been releasing new photos virtually every day in December.

We can now see Joel, played by Pedro Pascal, and Tess, played by Anna Torv, in the most recent photograph.

The two criminal partners are shown in the picture enjoying a sweet time together while sitting on a post-apocalyptic staircase. Joel and Tess introduced fans to this now-iconic franchise after the wrenching prologue.

The two collaborated as hired smugglers on the outskirts of Boston. They are given the job of moving straightforward “freight” when we first encounter them in the first game.

Later, we learn that the cargo is an infant called Ellie. The two first had a difficult time transporting a child, especially Joel.

To bring Ellie to the drop-off location in the opening act of the game, they must negotiate a dilapidated, infected-infested Boston. However, everything doesn’t go as planned in The Last of Us fashion.

Anyone who has played the games can probably guess what heartbreaking moment comes after this one, but we won’t reveal it here in case you’re just starting the series. In the first game, Joel and Tess had a believable connection that was marked by friendliness, respect, and perhaps even a hint of romance.

In their absurd new reality, they helped each other stay anchored. Torv and Pascal don’t even need to say a word—this picture says it all. Just the real Joel and Tess are present here.

A sentimental line shared by the two is the quote that goes with the image: “Save who we can save.” It is taken directly from the video game. The remaining games in the franchise include a repetition of it.

The Last of Us is a franchise built on terrifying narrative, difficult subjects, murky relationships, and tragically satisfying people. That is perfectly expressed in this exchange between Joel and Tess.

It will be fascinating to see what Pascal and Torv can add to the dynamic between these two smugglers. Throughout the entire series, you can see and feel Tess’ influence on Joel and his changing viewpoint.

There are no minor roles in The Last of Us, and Tess most definitely has a significant influence on Joel in terms of pure thematic significance.

As The Last of Us airs on HBO for the first time on January 15, Pascal and Torv’s adventure together begins. The nine-episode season will not only concentrate on the core plot of the original game but also incorporate material from Left Behind, a DLC tale, and The Last of Us Part II.
