WARNING: This post contains major spoilers for The Last of Us Season 1.

Season 1 of The Last of Us is over, but the tears remain.

Since I’ve never played the video game the show is based on, I went into this show knowing only the basic premise of the game and a few things I’d gleaned from Twitter, so I thought I was in for more scares and gore than anything.

Before I started my binge watch, I did not expect to spend the day crying my eyes out.

Here are 15 of the saddest moments of the series, from (in my opinion) least to most devastating:


When Joel builds a gravestone for Tess

When Joel flashes back to Sarah’s death before protecting Ellie

When Ellie confronts Joel about leaving her and tells him she knows about Sarah

When Bill gets shot


When Professor Pertiwi explains that there’s no vaccine or treatment for the infection
