Mate, I gotta tell ya, I loved it! So stoked we finally got to see the joke book from the game. On Twitter, I kept seeing all these gamers asking if we were ever gonna get it, so it was great to finally see it make an appearance. They switched things up a bit with the magazine Ellie finds in Bill's stash, but she still ends up with the joke book, so it's all good.
And I gotta say, I was completely floored by Jeffery Pierce as Tommy - I kept thinking, "Damn, this guy sounds just like him!" And then it hit me - he is him! It was such a cool surprise. I'm really hoping Nolan North makes a cameo appearance too, that would be epic.
The bonding between Joel and Ellie was so heartwarming, man. And I think it would've been sick if the guy in the laundry mat was the same guy from the game that Joel smashes into the shard of glass near the cooler. You know, the one from the grocery store? That would've been such a cool nod to the game.
Anyway, I'm pumped that Sam and Henry are finally coming into the picture, and from the looks of the preview for next week, it's gonna get even crazier with the Bloater and the school playground. Can't believe the series is almost over, but it's been a wild ride.
