“The Last Of Us” did justice to the funniest scene in the game
After last week’s extraordinary episode The last of us, The Haunting of Bly Manor And midnight fair Star Rahul Kohli wrote a note that has since been credited to Naughty Dog. It was not an official statement from the developer of the last of us video games, but his point still stands. “I made the mistake of reading other people’s comments TLOU. Many mask their homophobia with, “Why can’t we keep it in the game?” Others just don’t want LGBTQIA representation in mainstream media. Kohli then shared his thoughts on the review bombardment over Bill and Frank’s relationship (which is only hinted at in the video game, but it is a strong A notice).
“This is and always has been a progressive series. Bill was gay,” he wrote (I removed a spoiler for another character from his note, but feel free to read it here). “This *IS* a faithful adaptation. If TLOU is a bit too diverse/progressive for you, I think you should stop watching. It’s her story since 2014. There are countless stories that avoid any representation, I don’t know what to tell you, check them out instead.”
Episode four, “Please Hold My Hand,” faithfully adapted a memorable (and funny) moment from the video game, but for Kohli it has a different meaning on the television show after we spend an entire episode with Bill and Frank.
This is how it plays out in the game:
What a stinker, that Ellie.
