You’re here. I know why.
Because you’ve just gotten done watching that ace premiere of “The Last of Us” on HBO. Boy, that was a hell of a ride.
But you’re missing a piece of the puzzle. Mostly that song that starts playing on the radio at Joel’s place, as himself, Ellie, and Tess start their trek west at the end of the episode.
You’ll recall Ellie picking up a Billboard Hits book with a code written on a scratch sheet of paper inside that listed the decades. The year from which the song was released indicated what the hidden message to the listener was.
We didn’t get a definite answer over what final song was.
It’s “Never Let Me Down Again” by Depeche Mode and it was released in 1987. Its a banger.
As Ellie tricked Joel into revealing, the songs released in the 80s meant trouble. And goodness, that just about sums it up perfectly.
It was a nice touch to end the premiere and to kick off what should be a great series and what some are already calling one of the best video game adaptations they’ve ever seen.
