Warning: the article contains spoilers on the finale of the first season of the TV series.

Marlene had entrusted Joel and Tess with a very important mission: protect and accompany Ellie to the headquarters of the Lights. The little girl was precious because she was the only hope humanity had of being able to save itself, since it was discovered that she was immune. During the long journey, which the two shared, Joel really fell in love with the girl and a strong bond was born between them, which healed his wounds. For this reason, the moment he discovered that the doctors, in order to obtain a cure, would have to kill Ellie, Joel understood that he could not allow it. He then hauled her out of the hospital, killing anyone who got in his way.

A difficult choice, but extremely understandable, the one made by Joel in the finale of the first season of The Last of Us. Even Bella Ramsey thinks the man did the best thing and in a recent interview with Vanity Fair defended Joel’s conduct. According to the actress, the man made the best possible decision for him and acted well. And Bella Ramsey has the perfect answer for anyone who says Joel selfishly prevented the saving of the world:

Oh, don’t ask me if Joel made the right decision. I mean, I think he made the right decision. And I think most people agree. Also based on the reactions to the series that I’ve come across I think a lot of people think ‘She definitely made the right decision.’ I don’t think it was even a choice. I don’t think it was even a decision for him. There was no other option but to save her. He saved the world. But like, his world. It’s so embarrassing, but true in a way.

All episodes of the first season of The Last of Us they are on Sky (and streaming on NOW).
