We’ve already seen the trailer for the fourth episode of The Last of Us.


But now the photos are also available, which show the characters of Melanie Lynskey (aka Kathleen ) and Jeffrey Pierce ( Perry ). They are the leaders of the “hunters,” presumably the same armed group that traps travelers in the game and hunts down our heroes.

Directed by Jeremy Webb ( The Punisher, Altered Carbon, The Umbrella Academy ), the episode is entitled Please Hold on to My Hand , and will see Joel ( Pedro Pascal ) and Ellie ( Bella Ramsey ) continue their adventure after recovering the Bill ‘s car .

The release is expected today in the United States, obviously on HBO , and tomorrow in Italy on Sky and NOW . You can see the photos below.
