Why The Last Of Us Episode 3 Changed The Show’s Focus

Executive producer and writer Craig Mazin explains why The Last of Us episode 3 was such a departure for the show. While the story generally follows the adventures of Ellie (Bella Ramsey) and Joel (Pedro Pascal) after the two began their journey to meet the revolutionary Fireflies out west, their trip makes a detour when they agree to meet with Frank (Murray Bartlett) and Bill (Nick Offerman), two long-time survivors. Yet, as Ellie and Joel approach their town, the perspective of the episode shifts to focus on Frank and Bill instead, and their story spans nearly the entire runtime of The Last of Us episode 3.
