LOS ANGELES — Following the conclusion of the critically acclaimed first season of The Last of Us, lead performer Bella Ramsey teased the upcoming second season based on the game’s sequel by strangling a dog to death in front of gathered media.
“Oh my god, I can’t get enough of the fan service in this series,” said Lucy Thorne, a fan of The Last of Us games. “It was cool that the first season had so many direct references to Part One, but I was a little worried they would tone down the insistence on violently murdering dogs throughout the entire game when they got to Part Two. They’re leaning into it, though!”
“Best story in video games, easily,” she added. “Can’t wait to hear the anguished yelp of dying dogs every week.”
Ramsey defended their controversial actions.
“If fans of the show are upset about me executing that little black puppy, I have some really bad news about season two of our show,” said Ramsey, who portrays Ellie on the show. “And if you think the difference is that there’s no way HBO would really let us kill dogs, I need you to google their show ‘Luck.’ It’s not TV, motherfuckers.”
As of press time, a blissfully unaware Pedro Pascal announced an upcoming promotional appearance at a nearby TopGolf location.
