Meet Melanie Lynskey’s character, Kathleen

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from The Last of Us season 1.] “When I take you, there are some rules to follow,” Joel (Pedro Pascal) told Ellie (Bella Ramsey) to watch episode 3 of The last of us. Rule number one: never raise Tess (Anna Torv). Rule Two: Ellie doesn’t tell anyone about her infected bite mark or her immunity to the Cordyceps infection. Rule three: “You do as I say when I say.” Those lines just might save her life when Joel and Ellie run into Kathleen (Yellow jackets star Melanie Lynskey).

The last we saw them, Joel and Ellie left Bill (Nick Offerman) and Frank’s (Murray Bartlett) town of Lincoln, Massachusetts to reconnect with Joel’s brother Tommy (Gabriel Luna) in Wyoming. From there they will find the Fireflies who can take Ellie to the lab that Marlene (Merle Dandridge) said is working on a possible CBI cure.

But when the dysfunctional duo are turned around and end up in Kansas City, Missouri, they find themselves in the crosshairs of Lynskey’s Kathleen: described by HBO as “the ruthless leader of a revolutionary movement.”

See the new look The last of us episode 4 below. The images also show Jeffrey Pierce, who played Tommy in the video games, as another show-only character named Perry.

Is Kathleen in? The last of us Game?

Kathleen is an original character created by showrunner and writer Craig Mazin, who expanded on the source material and deviated with an all-new story for Bill and Frank in Episode 3. Kathleen’s faction is inspired by the video game’s Territorial Hunters, named after hunting “tourists” invading the former Pittsburgh QZ.

“[An original character] that Craig came up with was the character of Kathleen, who was the leader of who in these guys’ game were the fighters, and they play a slightly different role here,” Neil Druckmann, writer and co-director of The last of us video game, narrated ScreenRant about Lynskey’s character. “Because I like the idea that there’s not just good guys and bad guys. Everyone’s trying to survive, everyone’s trying to live life to the fullest. But often the goals compete, and that’s where the interesting things happen and the different philosophies of how to survive or the end justifies the means speak to what the story is really about in new ways than in the game.

Mazin added, “We didn’t have to fulfill a need that the video game had, which is to send NPCs to you. You have to kill a lot of people in that video game, but for us violence was pretty serious, and we didn’t want people for it So when enemies come, it was important for us to ask the question, “Why are they enemies? What do they want?” They’re not just bad people. From their point of view, this is all logical and justifiable, and that was interesting to explore.”
