Episode 5 of The Last of Us arrives early and you are not ready for the monstrous infected that will threaten our heroes.
If the series The Last of Us, adapted from the famous video game, takes the side of focusing more on the characters and digging into their psychology, it does not forget to explore the pandemic and the infected that resulted from it. .
Moreover, the next episode of the series will introduce one of the most monstrous “zombies” of the first video game. The episode 5 teaser, which will be available in advance, proves that this dangerous creature will come to threaten Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey).
Le Colosse arrive dans The Last of Us
The Last of Us series has already shown different types of Infected, from Runners, to Rangers, to Episode 2’s Clickers. But there’s an even more dangerous stage of Infected that will manifest in the episode 5.
We understand in episode 4 that Kathleen (Melanie Lynskey) and her Hunters are hiding a dark threat in the Kansas City underworld. And it is this underground threat that will land in the fifth episode of The Last of Us.
And as the teaser reveals, it is a Colossus. Video game fans know it well, this rare form of infected with the Cordyceps virus is extremely dangerous. Colossi take years to develop and they are less susceptible to bullets and attacks, due to their hardened shell and the fungus that forms a sort of armor on their bodies. They are therefore very difficult to kill.
If in the series, Joel and Ellie have already had trouble overcoming Claqueurs, their confrontation with a Colossus will be even more complicated. And it will be the most formidable Infected that the heroes will encounter in this first season.
Other even more dangerous types of infected exist but they appear in the video game The Last of Us : Part IIso we should see them in the already ordered season 2 of the series.
The first four episodes of The Last of Us are available on Prime Video.
