And, in the latest episode, there seemed to be much less ingesting and greater... kissing, which some can also have found curious.

As mentioned in our extended recap, episode two of The closing of Us ended with Tess (Anna Torv) sacrificing herself to shop Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey). She kind of needed to, as she's been bitten and is sure to become a senseless killer soon adequate. but as the infected storm her vicinity, and one in every of them notices her, as a substitute of running at her in a fit of rage, he tactics slowly and gives her an open-mouth zombie kiss, with his living, squirming tendrils moving into her mouth.

It's a moment that's curious for a number of explanations. One, it's no longer within the video game, so a decision became made to principally do this. Two, we're used to contaminated being enormously violent with their victims, and this one is rather the contrary. And three, if Tess changed into already contaminated, turned into there any real aspect to it?

That third element can't in reality be answered (probably the kiss speeded up the transformation or became just cool-looking), but the first two can and, in a new interview, co-showrunner Neil Druckmann talks about it. "these items don't should get violent until you're fighting them from spreading [the infection] further," Druckmann mentioned to amusement Weekly. "that's realized in this pleasing, yet horrific means with Anna."

"Craig [Mazin] neatly referred to, 'What do we do to separate our contaminated even extra from zombies?' It's greater than only a chew. There's some thing else happening," Druckmann added. "I hope we had that aha second instantly, however we brainstormed so a variety of things that they may be doing. some of them have been fairly outlandish."
