Season 1 Episode 5 of The Last of Us: Who Might Die Next

Season 1 Episode 5 of The Last of Us: Who Might Die Next ...

The Last of Us season 1 episode 5 is coming to an end just 48 hours away! Thanks to the Super Bowl, the next installment will be available on HBO Max early, and we're excited to see how Joel and Ellie's journey can continue.

There is obviously another big topic to actively think about here: Who might die next. How concerned should we end up being about that? On the surface, it appears like we already have an answer: We're not losing our two main characters. That's something we can be quite content with for the time being.


Kathleen (Melanie Lynskey) is at the top of our personal "death list" (morbid as that may be to write) and there is a good reason for that. Just remember that this character is not in the source material, and we don't anticipate that the producers will steer too far off the path that our lead characters are currently on.

There's also Sam and Henry, the two characters Kathleen is so clearly after. They're all around in video games, and there's a good possibility that something might happen to them, yet we've barely met them yet!

At this particular point in time, it feels like in general, we just have to be prepared for a revolving door of sorts when it comes to guest stars. A lot of people are likely to die, and the main thing you should really think about is how they will affect Joel and Ellie along the way.

What can you expect from The Last of Us season 1 episode 5 in terms of run time?
