Series The Last of Us will go a bit off the beaten path to flesh out the story of certain characters. And it seems that the adaptation will take advantage of this to show this important character for Ellie for the first time.
Ellie’s mother in the series The Last of Us ?
As we know, the TLOU series will take some scriptwriting liberties to better develop the characters. From the outset, it was assumed that those who gravitate around Ellie and Joel will have the right to new scenes. Big leaks from the filming suggested that flashbacks would be in the game, and it seems that we can learn more about the genesis of the Fireflies and Marlene. But not only.
According to reputable insider @ViewerAnon some of these flashbacks will feature Anna. A name mentioned many times in The Last of Us and in the comics American Dreams and for good reason, it is Ellie’s mother. Marlene’s former ally and pre-pandemic nurse never showed up. His only words: a letter addressed to Ellie carefully kept in his backpack. Series The Last of Us should therefore reveal more about it, probably through memories of the founder of the Fireflies. However, we will have to wait until 2023 to see if Ellie’s mother will make an appearance in the HBO adaptation. And maybe even in my famous The Last of Us Remake, who knows?
