Interview

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon completed its first season last year, and we might have to wait for at least a year for the second season to arrive. The next big thing on HBO’s calendar is the TV adaptation of the popular game The Last of Us. Headed by two Game of Thrones alum as the leads, Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie, it is one the most highly anticipated projects of 2023 and has already aired two episodes so far. One particular scene in the second episode disgusted a lot of fans, which wasn’t even in the original game.

The Last of Us producer and the game’s creator, Neil Druckmann told Entertainment Weekly why the scene was important, “These things don’t have to get violent unless you’re fighting them from spreading [the infection] further. That is realized in this beautiful, yet horrific way with Anna.”

Showrunner Craig Mazin joined in to explain, “Part of the issue with the spores is that you run into them quite a bit in the game, although not as much as people think, and if there were that many spores and they were airborne, that infection’s gonna go even faster. It’s hard to imagine how anyone escapes it, and people would probably be wearing masks all the time. In the game, the second you leave a spore space, you’re like, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa! Get a mile away.’”
