'The Last of Us 2' Ending Explained


Abby's largest chunk of story comes to an end when she comes face to face with Ellie.

If there was ever a day from hell, Abby had just lived it. She woke up next to her ex-boyfriend. She helped nurse an injured Yara back to health. She watched Yara get gunned down by the WLF. She managed to save Lev from the middle of an all-out war between the WLF and the Seraphites. And then she returned to her ex-boyfriend's place to find he and his current (and pregnant) girlfriend dead — murdered by Ellie.

You can understand why Abby wasn't going to let this slide.

Abby uses a map left behind by Ellie to trace her back to the theater her, Dina, Tommy, and Jesse are in. Abby breaks in, pulls a gun on Tommy, and has him captive when Ellie and Jesse burst through the door. Abby shoots and kills Jesse. Tommy tries to make a play for Abby. She shoots Tommy in the head. Ellie retreats to the backstage area of the theater, and after a brief fistfight, gets the upper hand against an unarmed Abby. From there, the player controls Abby as an angry Ellie stalks around in the shadows with a shotgun. All the sudden, Ellie is the villain.

The two scrap once more, and despite an attempt by Dina to save the day, Abby is in a position to kill both. Lev, however, talks Abby out of it. Abby and Lev leave, with Abby telling Ellie she never wants to see her again.
