WARNING: The following article contains major spoilers for The Last of Us: Part II.
The Last of Us, a HBO hit series that has gotten huge recognition and popularity, is a noteworthy addition to the list. After episode three's heart-rending romance, episode four, "Please Hold My Hand," has returned to the darker, darker, and gritty themes of the show.
Only this time, the threat to our favorite protagonists, Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) comes neither from the cordyceps-infested creatures nor from FEDRA officials, but from a group of brutal survivors who have seemingly taken it upon themselves to eliminate everyone who is even remotely related to the autoritarian authorities.
Kathleen, a human survivor, is out to venge those who have sided with FEDRA. The series has done a fantastic job in the past of introducing the audience to new characters, some of whom aren't related to the game.
Abby is one of the game's most well-known antagonists, and so will we get to see her in the show?
Who is Abby?
The Last of Us: Part II is a game starring Abigail Anderson. Jerry Anderson, the daughter of a fireflies surgeon, is shot in an attempt to save Ellie. Abby is then devastated and attempts to recover her father's death. Later, she and her friends hunt down Joel and murder him.
Abby and Ellie have a brutal encounter, which is well-known by now. Joel's death certainly irks Ellie to the core as he was the only person she had known.
Abby is a complex character, and in the first part of the game, while playing as Ellie, Abby appears as an enemy who must be dealt with. It is not until the second part of the game that the players are switched to control Abby. This helps the players in recognizing and, to a certain extent, sympathizing with Abby's character.
Will Abby be on the show?
Abby hasn't been confirmed in Season 2 of the show, but fans have suggested who is the best fit for the role. These include Florence Pugh, Jodie Comer, the former Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, and Jasmin Savoy Brown.
Laura Bailey plays the character in the game. Although the showrunners haven't disclosed whether or not they'll introduce the new character, it is very probable that she will. Season one represents the game's first part.
If Joel does that, we may see Jerry Anderson dying before the series' conclusion, which would lay the foundation for Abby's role in the second season. Fans have been raving for Joel's strong connection with Ellie since the first episode. He would be completely unaware of Abby's presence, much less what she might have experienced after her father's death.
Despite the fact that the show has been renewed for a second season, fans are keen to know what the show will bring, and Abby's presence would be the winning touch.
