Keeping up with Joel and Ellie's journey? Here's where to watch The Last Of Us episode 3.

The Last Of Us is a drama based on the hit PlayStation game of the same name (opens in new tab). Like the game, the TV series takes place in a version of 2023 that sees the world as we know it ravaged by an apocalyptic event caused by the cordyceps fungus that has mutated to affect humans and transformed countless people into horrific, zombie-like creatures. 

Here's our The Last of Us episode 1 recap and The Last Of Us episode 2 recap — we've also got a meet The Last of Us cast guide as well as an explainer on what clickers actually are, if you're wondering how the human race mutated into the series' creatures.

In episode 2, we watched Joel and Ellie (Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey) and Tess (Anna Torv) exploring the Boston QZ, with a view of getting Ellie to the Massachusetts State House in order to hand her over to a group of Fireflies. Sadly, they didn't escape the city limits unscathed, and Tess sacrificed her life in order to help our protagonists escape so Joel can take Ellie to Bill and Frank.

Here's where you can watch The Last Of Us episode 3 so you can follow Joel and Ellie on the next leg of their journey.
