Ellie needs to learn that gun is not a toy.
Okay, the bit with the magazine in the truck was spot on shot-for-shot like the game.
Ellie doesn't like coffee? She and I are enemies now.
The part where Ellie saves Joel by shooting the guy is a case of "same scene, different location." And the guy wasn't alive enough to plead for his life afterwards.
I also don't know who this Kathleen is. But in the game, Henry was trying to meet up with his group. We never see the group. But there was certainly nothing to connect Henry with the group that ambushed Joel and Ellie.
Nice moment with Joel teaching Ellie the correct way to handle a gun. I mean, in a non-post-apocalyptic world you wouldn't want to have to teach a kid that. But here, he trusts her now but wants to make sure she kn how to not hurt herself. It wasn't a part in the game, but it's a nice moment.
Oh! A bit of realism here. Joel is hard of hearing in his right ear because of a life time of shooting. Not too many movies/shows that actually seem to realize...guns are loud!
And Joel laughs!
And here's Sam and Henry. But it's getting late. I'll have to save the next episode for some other time.
So there were some breaks from the game and even some parts that were in the game were given different context. Still, that's bound to happen in any story that Changs medium. It's a pretty good episode, and we finally see full on a group that proves that humans can be just as bad as the zombies.
I'm torn about watching the next episode. I like Henry and Sam...but I know how it ends.
