Here's where to watch The Last Of Us episode 8 so you can continue to follow Joel and Ellie (Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey) as Ellie is forced to fend for herself.

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.

After we dove into Ellie's backstory, met Riley (Storm Reid), and learned about how Ellie got infected in episode 7, we're back in the present in the series' penultimate episode. 

Ellie's still trying to nurse Joel back to health after he got injured in Colorado (see our episode 6 recap for a reminder on how). Whilst out hunting for food, she runs into even more trouble, in the form of a band of hungry survivors...

Here's where and when you can watch The Last Of Us episode 8 so you can see her face off with the latest threat.
