The previous episode of The Last Of Us was so emotionally breaking, we can’t even think about what is going to happen in the finale. Yup! This is it folks! The last episode of The Last Of Us season 1. Good thing that it has been renewed for a second season, because I don’t think one is nearly enough. Here are the details about The Last of Us Episode 9. 

When Will The Last Of Us Episode 9 Air?

The ninth episode of The Last of Us, titled “Look for the Light,” will air on HBO Max and On Demand on Sunday, March 12th, 2023, at 9 p.m. Eastern Time and 6 p.m. Pacific Time. We’ve set up a live countdown so you can see how much time it is before the next episode of TLOU.


And just in case the first one breaks, here’s a second one you can use!

Episode 9 should at least bring us some conclusion about the Fireflies and how Ellie’s immunity to the infected might save the world. Having played the game, I already know where this is going to go, but you never know what type of curveball we’re going to get! I am specifically excited to see if any of the video game actors are going to show up in this finale as different characters. Last week’s episode showcased Troy Baker, the original actor for Joel in the video games. This week, we should hopefully be in for a treat as far as that goes! But don’t forget the tissues and snacks and comfy blankies because it’s going to be a roller coaster of emotions.

What Can We Expect in TLOU’s Episode 9?

MAJOR spoilers ahead! You have been warned!

According to wiki’s description of what happens in the game, we should expect this episode to be a wreck to our feelings. Joel and Ellie make their way to Salt Lake City in the Spring. After coming dangerously close to drowning, Ellie is put unconscious just in time for a Firefly patrol to pick them up. Marlene (remember her? From the first episode?) informs Joel, who is in the hospital, that preparations are being made for Ellie to undergo surgery. In order to create a vaccine against the sickness, the Fireflies need to remove the diseased area of Ellie’s brain, which would ultimately result in her death. Since Joel can’t bear to see Ellie die, he fights his way to the operating room, assassinates the chief surgeon, and then carries Ellie to the parking garage while she is still unconscious. As he is approached by Marlene, he pulls out his gun and murders her so that the Fireflies would not continue to pursue them. Ellie wakes up as they are leaving the city, and when she does, Joel lies to her and tells her that the Fireflies have discovered many more immune individuals, but that they have been unable to produce a cure and have given up trying. 

We know this is a lie, Ellie doesn’t, but suspects it is. Joel swears his story about the Fireflies is true. 

Let’s see if this rings true in this week’s finale, or if the episode will leave us with a cliffhanger!

Here’s a preview of Sunday’s episode.

I’m not ready for this season to be over. I need more than just 9 episodes! This feels like the shortest season ever.
