Frank’s Love Story
The latest episode of HBO’s The Last of Us showed us the biggest departure from the game’s material. At the same time, it gave the series its strongest episode and fleshed out Bill, played by Nick Offer man , more than ever before.
In the first Last of Us game, Bill is introduced as an apocalyptic prepper and survivalist, owing Joel a list of favors for unspecified reasons. We knew at one point that Bill had a partner, Frank, who mysteriously left in the middle of the night, never to return. We never saw Frank but felt the impact he left on Bill. In episode 3, titled “Long, Long Time” after Linda Rondstadt’s song, Bill and Frank never separated but in fact lived to a ripe old age where they both committed assisted suicide. .
