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.

​@Will Sa mycologist specializing in cordyceps would 100% understand the extremes of what would happen if it evolved to infect humans. Especially seeing as 14 other workers were already missing, being told that the person who bit the body she looked at was violent/had to be killed, and the timeframe in which it all happened. On top of that the time it would take to make any sort of vaccine if it was even possible would be far too late. What else was she supposed to suggest? I'm genuinely curious

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.

@KingXerxes Fungal infections are most common externally but they also occur in places such as your respiratory tract (mouth, throat, nasal and lungs), urinary tract and other parts of your body.
KingXerxes 23 gün önce
@a person who may or may not exist Anti fungal only exist because every fungal infection in humans is external. Any internal fungal infection would be untreatable given how similar their DNA is to ours. We would have to raise the temperature of our body high enough to kill the spore, which would kill the host just as well. Any serums design to kill the fungus would have devastating effects on our nervous system and circulatory systems.

​​@a person who may or may not exist That is actually not the deal. When I first saw the episode, I thought the same thing, but the issue here isn't that fungal infection can't be cured, it is that they can't be cured without compromising the host. Since fungi are closer to animals, making a chemical that won't in turn harm the human too is difficult. While there are antifungals that exist, majority of them are for fungals that are pretty weak in comparison to the cordyceps shown in the series. Think about it this way, there are so many antibiotics available, but how many antifungals can you think of? In comparison, they are like a handful. Moreover, the fugus shown in TLOU spreads very very quickly. The difficulty in able to manufacture such a medicine and the very limited time might be the reason there is no antifungal for cordyceps in the show.

@blkyank1 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

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.

@Matteo DeLaPaz it's very rarely active though. There are barely a couple dozen cases per year caused by this. And brain disease doesn't necessarily decrease intelligence.

@kanton4108 No. Do you remember the tendril kiss scene? If you rewatch the scene where Dr. Ratna fishes the fungus out of the corpse's mouth, the tendrils reach for her face, just like the zombie did to Tess. That could be a small signal that the scientist was already infected, and that the fungus reaching for her signaled that she too was infected already.

I like how the episodes start and end. For example, in the last episode with Bill and Frank, there were scenes throughout the episode. But when the story is basically over THEN we see the last scene and the episode ends. when I realized what had happened I cried. this cannot be done without masterful directing from HBO.

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. No doubt to slow and control the outbreak because a dead person can't spread the infection. The governments in ' "The Last of Us" came to same conclusion.

@Edwin Samaniego it looks like MS or ALS. So it does not make such a big difference. They had pain killers and probably some other pharmaceutical drugs. This story is so sweet because the dystopian situation was the reason they could live their lifes as they want to live it. Especially Bill could not be who he really was before the outbreak because of the people around him. Listen to the podcast of this show if you want to find out more about why this was such a nice story.

@ben dictionary meaning -> especially : pleasant but including or marked by elements of suffering or regret. I thought their happy grow old story was beautiful, but also marked by elements of suffering (Franks illness, and how Bill viewed his life as fulfilled or done without him). Thats why its bittersweet to me. Perhaps if they met in a non-dystopian setting they could've lived longer together with help from medical care.

At some point, I wouldn't surprised if we get a flashback about the patient zero in Jakarta and/or about the flour plant where the outbreak happened
Ivo Broekhof
Ivo Broekhof 16 gün önce
​@chrysller ryu 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.

The talk show flashback with those shots of the many, many audience members silently watching is so thematically brilliant. I just look at that mass of people and immediately see how the outbreak would take root in each and every one of them, make them all part of the same parasitic network. And what’s cool is you can see on the audience members’ faces that they are realizing that too.

Even if your plane itself is not overrun, there's no one on the ground to guide you into a landing. You end up in a circling pattern with all the other planes still flying until fuel supply forces you down. That's why you can see a whole conga line of planes in the first episode.

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.

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.

Honestly the best part of this show. The second episode opening with the doctor? I have NEVER been more engaged in a programme. 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.

Really enjoying TLOU show, as a part time gamer it was one of the few games I really got into (I'm old!). Just finished ep 2. Damn Tess. When they said "look for the light"..damn. Great scene. Mrs. Ratna and Tess. Both staunch, badass women.

I love these flashbacks, best part of the series imo. They need more world building and background on whats going on outside the characters.

Its scary to me because it reminds me of the 6 month lockdown we had in my country. And even after lifting the lockdown people were just generslly scared to go outside for the year that followed. We went full survival mode. 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.

@HenryT that an awesome episode where they flipped the script meet cue to tragic ending, rise to greatness(as mankind faces extinction) and a fall from grace. beautiful. the instant understanding and recognition love at first sight. in an instant life was better and to good to lose. but.... i dont think frank is dead. we didnt see a body and hell its not like they are scared to change the story.

It was a sweet episode but over all this episode did not deliver. They altered the story so much they missed out on a great opportunity to show the real threat of the infected. No chaos in trying to get a working battery and getting out of there. I was really looking forward to that

Its great i wish more zombie shows has short standalone scenes leading up to or during an outbreak while progressing with the current story
Francisco Reyes Nogueira
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.

Going through with what we all went through, and we only got a very small taste early on of what the end would be like, TLOU along with every apocalyptic dystopian fiction will be a very true representation of what's to come when the end comes.

I thought the performance with Mrs Ratner was a beautifully subtle scene that was so effective. However, I think an even more prominent theme is that people need connection. Survival is insufficient.

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.

The heaviness of having a scientist in the not so distant past prophesizing a SHTF scenario that science couldn't save us from and bookending it with a scientist who realizes they ARE IN the SHTF situation where nothing could be done was brilliantly executed.

Its funny how the danger changes from infected to just every day humans..atleast the monsters are somewhat predictable...people on the other hand NOPEEE..my main strategy if shit ever goes down is avoid everyone if possible esp any authorities..trusting anyone is too much risk sadly, and that really turns your heart to ice.

The flashbacks are also a glimpse to the excellent TV series or movie we could have had from a proper adaptation of the World War Z anthology (not the awful Brad Pitt WWZ in name only movie). I do want to push back on the idea that it is acceptable, civilised, and prudent for scientists & doctors to advocate complete annihilation, or other draconian, callous, and care-less solutions (eg what the Fireflies ultimately wanted to do to Elly) when faced with a problem too catastrophic for them to immediately understand and engineer solutions for. Superficial journalists & science communicators make a big deal of the realities of superbugs and superfungi portrayed in HBO's LoU but they're missing the bigger social commentary about how self destructive & brittle our social foundations really are.
