Here's where to watch The Last Of Us episode 7 so you can catch up with Joel and Ellie (Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey) now that they're back out on the road.

For the uninitiated, The Last Of Us is a drama based on the hit PlayStation game of the same name. Like the game, the TV series takes place in a version of modern society that's been forever altered by a mutated form of the cordyceps fungus that unleashed hoards of infected, zombie-like creatures all over the world. If you're not hooked already, stop here; instead, check out how you can watch The Last Of Us episode 1 for free so you can try the series out first.

In episode 6, Joel finally tracked down his brother, Tommy. However, their reunion didn't last long, as Joel headed to Colorado on the trail of the Fireflies. Whilst they managed to find out where the group had headed next, Joel was put out of action in a brutal scrap with another survivor. Since Joel is taking a back seat for the episode, we'll be meeting a new face from Ellie's past: enter, Riley (Euphoria's Storm Reid).

Here's where and when you can watch The Last Of Us episode 7 so you can find out how he's holding up.
