Is Tess romantically involved with Joel?
One of the few hints at a romantic history between Joel and Tess appears at the same time in the game, though with different context. Tess' dying wish from the game is for Joel to carry out the mission with Ellie. “There has to be enough here for you to feel some sort of obligation to me,” she pleads.
Before dying, Tess tells Joel she never asked him to feel the way she felt (meaning: to reciprocate her love). The zombie kiss is a grotesque inversion of what Tess seemed to want very badly from Joel: intimacy, closeness, oneness.
The closest the script sidles toward confirming their status as smugglers with benefits is the dialogue that cracks Joel wide open: "There's enough here that you have to feel some sort of obligation to me." Tess explicitly summoning the implicit nature of Joel's affection, however unnamed or reluctant it may be, is the ...
At the end of the game, Tess sacrifices herself to save Joel and Ellie and it is implied that she dies from her injuries.
The Last of Us' Tess' Zombie Kiss Explained: Why It Was Meant to Be 'Disturbing and Violative' Viewers were shocked by Tess' last moments in HBO's The Last of Us, when she allowed a "clicker" zombie to kiss her on the lips and directly infect her with the cordyceps fungus rather than fighting back.
But before she can spring her trap, she's approached by a still-human-looking zombie, who kisses her — with jellyfish-like tendrils reaching out of his mouth and squirming into hers.
More than being smuggling partners, they were also romantic partners. In Episode 1's “When You're Lost in the Darkness,” the audience is given brief moments of intimacy between Tess and Joel. When Tess returns to the apartment they share, she is Joel's big spoon as they fall asleep.
Rather than fight him off, which she's proven to be an expert at, Tess just stood there and let him approach her for an open-mouthed kiss, which would allow the squirmy cordyceps fungi to enter her mouth.
After narrowly escaping an encounter with some Infected, Tess gets bitten. Knowing that her fate is sealed, she asks Joel to escort Ellie over to his brother Tommy in Jackson, which is a ways away from Boston.
Did Joel have a love interest?
Esther is a minor character who is mentioned in The Last of Us: One Night Live. She is Joel's love interest after his brother Tommy apparently paired them up. How well do you know The Last of Us? Take the quiz to prove your knowledge.
The road leading to the climax of HBO's The Last of Us has been built around the relationship formed by Ellie (Bella Ramsey) and Joel (Pedro Pascal). Initially antagonistic, it soon becomes a relationship of convenience, necessity, and eventually, love.
Tess was originally a true villain in The Last of Us, and this abandoned plot would've actually given her much more to do than in the final game. Tess' sacrifice and relationship with Joel is central to the plot of The Last of Us, but the hopeful survivor herself is sadly left behind.
Hardin and Tessa reunite
Then, he makes a heartfelt speech about Landon and Nora, where he alludes to his breakup with Tessa, causing her to get upset leave the ceremony. Hardin goes after Tessa and apologises. Then, they have sex, confess their love for each other and he proposes on the spot, to which she says yes!
Who was Ellie in love with? In Left Behind she kissed Riley, and the creator confirmed they had a romantic relationship, and that Ellie was a lesbian. The actresses were even working on the fact that they were in love. Hope that answers your question!
He will never forget Sarah, but he has obviously moved on, and he made it pretty clear in several instances. Ellie is alive and well, clearly he cares more about her by the end of the game.
The infected runner wasn't actually kissing Tess. Instead, it was allowing the mutated Cordyceps fungus to spread from itself into Tess. The horror series creators Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann told EW that the infected don't get violent unless they're prevented from spreading their disease.
Tedros is a sixteen-year-old prince, the son of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere, and the supposed heir to the throne of Camelot until his elder half-brother pulled the sword from the stone.
It didn't make much sense to me to have FEDRA all the way out there," Mazin said. "We wanted a chance to show a different result of being infected, which was not one of mere violence or horror, but rather a sick kind of community. Now, at the end, we had an opportunity to show how connected they were," he continued.
Some years later, Tess finds employment as a milkmaid at Talbothays Dairy, where her past is unknown. She falls in love with Angel Clare, an apprentice gentleman farmer who is studying dairy management.
Can Ellie infect others?
She has stated she cant infect people. For the same exact reason why if you are immune to a virus you can't infect other people with said virus. It's a fungal infection not a virus.
These tendrils seem to be how the infected transmit Cordyceps from themselves to their hosts through bites. The reason the zombie seems to kiss Tess likely comes from the infection already present in Tess' body.
Tess dies after being bitten by a Clicker in the museum. Knowing she's doomed, she sacrifices herself by blowing up the Capitol building while it's full of infected, allowing Joel and Ellie to escape.
The group is attacked by Clickers as they make their way through the museum and while they're separated, Tess gets bit. She soldiers on and keeps it to herself while they make their way to the Capitol Building where they find the Fireflies all dead (though seemingly not killed due to infection).
But in the game, it is Tess who convinces Joel to take Ellie. Joel would have just gone back to the QZ had this request not been made. (Or Tess not died.) Joel agrees to take Ellie partly due to his guilt over Tess's death and his loyalty to her.
