What Happened to Tess at the End of The Last of Us Episode 2?

The first episode of HBO‘s adaption introduced viewers to Ellie (Bella Ramsey), a young girl who has a mysterious secret: a bite mark from three weeks ago, yet she has exhibited no signs of changing into an infected. This was played by Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Tess (Anna Torv).

They come to an agreement to assist in secretly transporting her from the quarantined area of Boston to the city’s former Capitol. In order to escape, Joel had to kill a FEDRA guard, who also informed them that Ellie was infected (despite her immunity). In Episode 2, they travel throughout the city, notably, they visit a museum that is infamous for being a Clicker hotspot.

A fight broke out with the Clickers despite their best attempts in the museum, and Tess was bitten, she tragically gave her life so that Joel and Ellie could continue their trip. The group encounters multiple Clickers while exploring the museum’s upper level. They make no outward display of noise, yet a creak here and a cough there let them zero in. Tess distracts them by pulling one of them away, and she seems to escape harm.

Arriving at the Capitol building, they discover nothing but abandoned equipment and bloodied bodies. While Joel seems quite accepting of this as a message to go home (he tells Ellie,  “One of them got bit, the healthy ones fought the sick ones, and everyone lost,”), Tess anxiously attempts to think of a solution.

Something like this was inevitable. I know a lot of you did. To fill you in for those who didn’t know, Tess was bitten on the neck by a Clicker, and the infection is starting to clear up. She informs Joel, “Our luck had to run out sometime.” She tells Joel that if he takes Ellie to Bill and Frank’s, he should “save who you can save” before she dies.

A nearby corpse begins to crawl forward from the ground, and Joel shoots him in the head. However, one death breeds a horde, as the vibration of the gunshot is transmitted throughout the huge network of fungi, and hundreds more infected begin to dash toward them.

Tess is surrounded by fuel and grenades and prepares for a flaming death while an infected gives her a horrible, disgusting kiss of death, its tendrils going into her mouth and down her throat, while Joel snatches Ellie away. And then, just as she’s about to save everyone, it explodes taking her with it.
