Why The Flashbacks In THE LAST OF US Are So Terrifying. In this video, we break down the flashback scenes in The Last Of Us TV show so far. The Last Of Us has taken the opportunity to show us flashbacks to years before the outbreak, days prior and right after the world collapsed. Throughout this video, I'm gonna be discussing the three key scenes in the Last Of Us that take us back to the past and really make this show infinitely more terrifying. Let's get into it!

/* ---- VIDEO INFORMATION ---- */
Ok so The Last Of Us tv show takes us somewhere that we never really saw in the game. In that we woke up playing as Sarah on the night of the Outbreak and after her death we picked up as Joel twenty years later. However a TV show can take us into new and interesting places because it's not as focused on making sure the player is engaged. Typically in a game you tend to keep things centred around one character so that the player feels like they're experiencing things and they very much imprint on that one person. It's why so many games had silent protagonists and it's a technique that tends to work when you're playing a video game.
However TV shows can do things differently....not like that Halo.
Anyway TV shows can do things differently and that's where The Last Of Us has taken the opportunity to show us flashbacks to years before the outbreak, days prior and then right after the world has just collapsed. Throughout this video I'm gonna be discussing the three key scenes in the Last Of Us that take us back to the past and really make this show infinitely more terrifying.
If you enjoy the video please hit the thumbs up button and make sure you subscribe for last of us videos every week until we've milked the entire thing dry. Anyway with that out the way, thank you for clicking this, now let's get into the breakdown.
Ok so the first two scenes very much act as book ends of each other. In the first we have a scientist theorising how cordyseps could lead to the end of the world and the second one deals with a scientist realising that that end is now upon us. This very much sets up the threat of the infected and how we will lose as a species because of it.
However the third one very much shows that there's more facets to it and instead it shows that humanity will also have a hand in this too.

When you see a doctor telling anyone that the only thing that can be done is to bomb and destroy the whole place,you know that it’s beyond dire. She was fantastic in that role. Very understated but you can tell from just her face how bad it is. This show is heartbreaking.

She really was amazing
@RobStevens64 Yıl önce
Even better, you see before she even says anything ... the downcast glance, hands shaking. She knows SHE'S going to die before she even tells the military what needs to be done. Potentially, she even knows their response will come too slow ... bombing everything will be seen as a rash act and end up debated. The show reinforces this later when Ellie asks about the blast zone and Tess says the bomb worked there, but not everywhere.
@TheNetherwalker Yıl önce
See that was the most unbelievable part to me. There are about a dozen things you can try before you bomb a city. They should have put in a little montage of her trying antifungal agents. Not to mention that cold areas should be immune.
@RobStevens64 Yıl önce
The previous episode's flashback already established that there are no cures, no treatments. An expert (which was established when they picked her to do this analysis) would know what were viable vectors to try. And she would also know if it were futile. Remember, they brought her in as a second opinion ... they had already established everything she told them, she was just validating it. And what makes you think cold areas would be immune? Again, the first episode established that heat was a problem for the fungus, not cold. Arguably, it even further established (reinforced by the second episode) that it has now mutated to handle even HIGH heat (i.e. baking). This is why in the first episode, when Ellie asks about the bombs, Tess tells her that it worked there, but it didn't work in other cities. The temperatures have to be VERY extreme to affect the fungus now. It can survive several hundred degrees now, but maybe not a thousand.

Love that 1968 flashback. The doctor mentions fungi being the most threatening form of disease and everyone chuckles. But after he puts it in perspective and explains the plausibility of such a horrifying fungus evolving to exterminate humanity, the room grows so quiet you can hear a pin drop from the hallway. Just chilling.

I work in medical microbiology and although I'm not as familiar with mycology (we mostly deal with bacteria and respiratory viruses), that flashback was one of my fave science scenes in modern media!
For some reason, this reminded me of something. During the AIDS crisis in the 80s and 90s, one of the opportunistic infections that scared people most was thrush. It's a fungal infection.
@TheLAGopher Yıl önce
What is also interesting is that the 1968 tv interview represented a fork in the road between our reality and the alternative reality of the show. The first scientist is talking about the potential of a global pandemic that uses air travel to spread across the planet. That represents the pandemic of 2020. The second scientist blows that off by saying that while millions would die, the human race would win that battle in the end the same way it has over other plagues across history. His true fear is a fungal outbreak because human science has no history of treatment to draw upon and the human body has no natural defenses that could even cope with a fungus that suddenly mutated to prey on us.
@@TheLAGopher Admittedly, he's being a little silly with the claim about no treatment. TLOU seems to exist in a universe where antifungals dont exist. But in real life, antifungals are fully a thing. There is absolutely a treatment, anyone who has ever had athlete's foot can tell you that there are treatments if you have a fungal infection
The audience was so still I thought it was an extended freeze frame.

Favourite flashback so far is Episode 2. The Professor of Mycology immediately passing the judgment of bombing the city and “everyone in it.” It’s so eery, but clearly demonstrated how pressing the situation was as the world started to collapse only 30 hours ago due to the first bites of the Infected! The fact that she suggested that, simultaneously asking the officer to ‘“DRIVE”’ her home to her family, implies that she would be in the city herself, or close to it, to get bombed… She made her judgment that she was already infected or soon to be.

Also Fun Fact: The Actress Christine Hakim was reluctant to took the deal from HBO because to do so she has to fly to Calgary (Yes they shoot the scenes in Calgary not Jakarta because Jakarta was in lockdown back then) to shoot for the show during the COVID-19 pandemic peak, she has an elderly mother and a husband with comorbid (more vulnerable to death if infected) but after some convincing from her grandchild and another Indonesian Actor she agreed. So the line "Drive me back to my family" hits harder because she is actually in a real pandemic leaving her family behind.

Normally cordeceps can't survive high tempuratures but when it was allowed to mutate and survive in Jakar that was when they were screwed. A fungus mutating like this irl is possible if its introduced into an environment to MAKE it change like all nature does naturally.
@DINO_X65 Yıl önce
@@ROSPoetry1 Sure, but cordyceps irl can only infect insects. If it could mutate to survive human internal body temperatures, it would have to mutate a lot and a lot to infect mammals to the extent that it did in the show. The way that it infects insects is by controlling their muscles, so in essence, the insect is trapped inside it's own body. To control human muscles, which are more complex however, that would be almost impossible. But may I introduce you to Toxoplasma gondii? It can infect mammals and is a protozoan. If it infects humans, it can lead to severe or permanent brain damage. And it's spread by cat feces or undercooked meat, and over a third of the population is already infected, just that it lies dormant currently. If it does awaken though, it starts out by giving you flu like symptoms then slowly climbs up the scale in a matter of months and gives you severe brain damage. That's if you don't die from a car crash on your way to the doctor's office due to your now super slow reaction times.

In the tv show "Fear of the Walking Dead" it's shown the military was ordered to kill "uninfected civilians"( if there were such a thing)along with destroying the zombies.

​@@chrysllerryu4171 Ophiocordyceps lives in tropical forests (A group), while wheat is grown in temperate plains (C/D groups, or B if irrigated). Based on that, I presume that the cordyceps contaminated the flour rather than the wheat grains directly. To illustrate, Jakarta has an Am classification (just shy of Af), while the wheat hotspots in China, Denmark, Northern France and are all D-group climates. Then further based upon what we see, the dry heat of an oven apparently does not stop the spores from infecting someone, together with the adaptation to make infected humans bite others (which no cordyceps does to their victim species irl) points to a long, long process of adaptation which to me is quite a plot gap, but once this mutation is established it is of course plausible for the fungus to survive anywhere as long as its host keeps its temperature. The truly weird thing is how cordyceps was able to adapt to humans so well without sparking minor epidemics far before the main outbreak, especially since we are the only species to subject our food to extreme heat (far more than we can attribute the spores through tropical heat with global warming) before eating it. But oh well, that is just one aspect in a scenario they pretty much nailed scientifically.

My dad had purchased a sizable plot of land pre pandemic (lucky good timing) and there we all lived in a small room/hut, planted fruits and vegetables, raised poultry, even a goat at one point, our bathing and flushing water came were harvested from the rain, and the only things we bought from the outside are potable water, raw pork and beef, and body and clothes soap. We basically went from a family of 6 city dwellers to a self sustaining farmer family, all in a matter of days. Thank god my mom has a green thumb and my father still had some money even though his work basically shutdown for an entire year. Thats what the flashbacks reminded me of, the almost 180 of life just because of some cough inducing virus.

Just discovered your channel with your previous video on TLOU, I love your analysis. What srtoke me in ep2 was that it was the scientist suggesting that the city was bombed, and the soldier that was standing in fear/disbelief. Usually in movies, the military wants to nuke everything and the scientists try tobe the voice of reason. Having the roles reversed help furthermore to hammer down the seriousness of the situation.

I love how Paul here at Heavy Spoilers was thee 1st TRvidr to mention the flour and Jakarta connection. Many have said this 2 weeks after Paul. I’m sure those “popular” TRvidrs saw his video and didn’t give him credit. Most don’t and l never know why. It’s nice to help each other grow. In fact it makes everyone better. WWE was better when WCW was around. Sorry I just truly respect Paul. I’ve spoken to him on social media and you can just tell he’s a humble/nice guy. Rare with TRvidrs. So thanks mate.

I think this could be even bigger than The Walking Dead, it’s just incredible. Probably the best TV I’ve ever watched. But tbf pretty much all my favourite tv shows are from HBO, they really have a winning formula.

I think that airplanes where brought down by the army jets that we saw a couple of scenes before; not because we had infected on the planes. They were trying to contain the outbreak at any cost. Besides, the airplanes had the engines on fire, so unless the infected got there somehow, it’s way more likely that the planes were shot down.
🤗 really appreciate these updates 💙
The 1968 flashback is probably in my opinion one of the best flashbacks so far until we see any others

6:03 - it says 5-15 minutes for a neck bite but looking back Tess seemed to last a lot longer than that and Sam was bitten on the leg and turned just a couple of hours later that same night? 🤔 it could also be an age related thing perhaps as the old lady in episode 1 turned pretty quick after ingesting it
@fivestarguy100 11 aylar önce
Well, Tess did seem to last a fair bit longer than what was advertised, but with Sam a whole night passed in-between him getting bit and then him turning. And the old lady in episode 1ate the Cordyceps, she wasn't bit. So perhaps that is a whole different system. But it took her a whole day to turn pretty much, yeah you see her acting sussy the whole episode but she only turns after Sarah wakes up in the middle of the night. If anything the two people the old lady bit turned ridiculously fast, but those were both neck bites, so it kind of makes sense.
@jimmymcgill2557 11 aylar önce
​@@fivestarguy100 oh yeah i totally forgot the old lady was down to ingesting the Cordyceps! my bad, all good points you mention but Sam was bit on the leg and Tess the neck/collar area and she still seemed to last longer...Sam was bitten in what i'm guessing was early evening (it was certainly the night because it was dark when the bloater and runners turned up) and then later that night is when he attacked Ellie and Henry shot him, either that or there was a whole day we didn't see that was off screen but again im pretty sure it was the same night and just a few hours after the runners/bloaters...either way i'm only nit picking, Season 1 was superb, can't wait for season 2!...me want some more bloater action, we didn't get enough of them!

3:35 that's a lowkey masterpiece of a moment. there's so much amazing acting in this. the subtle nuances of her reaction were just amazing. in that one instant after she sees the positive test, you can see her realization, her heartbreak, and just a bit of fear. such a bomb piece of acting. i thought she was sure to be an important side character, but like the indonesian scientist, she was literally just there for that one tiny but crucial plot moment, and she knocked it out of the park.

That pesky Valley Fever. Mainly spreading for the southwest due to increasingly arid areas since it spreads through the upheaval of dry sand and dust.. . one of the many reasons why lots of people working in agriculture, construction, etc. wear masks. But that's not the only way fungal infections affect us today. I've know individuals who developed asthma or chronic breathing condition due to "sick" buildings, or buildings with high growth colonies of black mold. During the early days of the AIDS epidemic fungal infections were an early death sentence and it was these fungal infections normal not found in the human population (as well as rare cancers) that concerned early epidemiologists, what was happening in the body that would create an environment for these infections to gain a foothold.

And something they havnt had to deal with is the outbreak, which is smart because in reality, while it may have had a massive outbreak in certain areas, the fact that they recognized it so quickly means that they would have shut down the factory and recalled all products. This most likely would have stopped the spread globally. Unless it took them awhile to recognize what was causing it. But assuming that it was a particular batch that had the fungus…also, once it hit colder areas it would have died I believe. They were very smart not addressing this because no way would someone eating bread in Boston be affected at the same time as someone in Jakarta.
