The Last Of Us Fans Spot A Mistake In Episode 6
Uh oh, it looks like HBO has another Starbucks coffee cup mistake on its hands.
The newest episode of HBO's The Last of Us contains what appears to be a mistake. An eagle-eyed fan noticed that one of the shots shows the filming crew. This story contains spoilers for The Last of Us.
There is a good chance you wouldn't have noticed this. The crew appear to be visible in a wide-angle shot of Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) crossing a snowy bridge, but only when zoomed in. And even then, it's difficult to see that this is the crew--but it sure looks like it is. Take a look for yourself in this shot from Twitter user Scott T. Jones.
HBO has made some mistakes like this before, as a Season 8 episode of Game of Thrones featured a Starbucks coffee cup in plain view. The prequel, House of the Dragon, had its own gaffe with King Viserys' green CGI fingers not getting edited out before the episode went to air. Both of those mistakes were subsequently edited out, but that doesn't appear to have happened yet for The Last of Us' own editing error.
Episode 6, "Kin," might have had this minor editing mistake, but the consensus was it was a good episode overall packed with story and character development. Joel and Ellie made it to Jackson. Ellie learned about Joel's deceased daughter. Joel and Tommy (Gabriel Luna) had a heated and emotional conversation.
Brilliant episode. Something you might want to fix and reupload though. You can see the film crew in this shot. pic.twitter.com/GZ9Pp6AknL— Scott T. Jones Guitarist/Composer (@stjguitarist) February 20, 2023
There were signs of hope in the post-apocalyptic world--but that peace didn't last long. Joel got stabbed at the end of the episode, which ended with Ellie pleading for him to survive, with tears running down her face before fading to black.
Episode 7, which airs February 26, will go back in time and show Ellie and Riley (Storm Reid) seemingly playing out the events of The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC.
