The Last of Us showrunners on how Ellie got her eyebrow scar



Bella Ramsey as Ellie in The Last of Us

HBO’s The Last of Us recently aired its seventh episode, ‘Left Behind’, and it is another fine example of video game adaptations done right. It gave us a much-needed insight into Ellie’s backstory, as well as showed off her survival skills. However, a lot of fans noticed Ellie has a mysterious scar on her eyebrow, and the showrunners Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin talked about how she got that.

What Neil Druckmann thinks about the scar?

Neil Druckmann hasn’t decided whether to reveal the story behind the scar just yet, but in The Last of Us podcast, he revealed, “Well one, again, that conversation is just like things could go wrong. Someone could get hurt. But there’s also…you know, I get this question so many times of like, ‘how did Ellie get her scar?’ on her eyebrow. And then Craig and I discussed it, and I told him like, just some of the thoughts I had about it. So I was like ‘I don’t necessarily want to answer that, at least not yet. And like, we could just hint that there is a story there.’”

What did Craig Mazin say about Ellie’s eyebrow scar?

Craig Mazin sort of hinted at what might have happened to Ellie, “So something happened in a 7-Eleven that obviously is in the QZ and abandoned, where, in my mind it happened together, right? Ellie and Riley must have been together. They must have broken in. They must have had to run out fast. There was some glass, going through a window. Something happened.”

When will The Last of Us Episode 8 arrive?

The Last of Us episode 8 will premiere on March 5th, 2023 at 6 p.m. PT (9 p.m. ET), which you might remember as the time slot occupied by House of the Dragon last year on HBO and HBO Max.
