What Happens to Tommy in The Last of Us Game?

In the game, Joel successfully delivers Ellie to The Fireflies to create a cure. However, after learning they intend to kill her, he rescues the girl and they return to Tommy and Maria’s village.

Upon their return, Joel and Tommy become close again, often patrolling the surrounding areas together.

One night, the pair of brothers rescue a girl from a horde of infected, Abby Anderson. Abby brings the pair back to meet her companions and they offer them refuge in their camp.

After fully introducing themselves to Abby’s group, Joel becomes aware that they know who the Miller siblings are.

Abby confirms this after shooting Joel in the leg. She then takes him to a wall begging him to guess who she is.

It turns out that Abby is the daughter of one of the doctors who wanted to murder Ellie. To prevent this from happening Joel assassinates her father to stop The Fireflies from doing so.

Ellie eventually finds Abby torturing Joel with a golf club. However, while trying to help, she becomes restrained by Abby’s team and Joel is killed.

Fuelled by revenge, Tommy vows to hunt and kill the woman who murdered his brother, leaving behind his wife Maria. However, when Tommy finds Abby, he is shot in the leg and then shot in the skull.

This bullet turns out to be non-lethal and instead leaves him blind in one eye as well as reducing his mobility. He returns to his wife but after months of bitterness and guilt, the pair eventually spend some time apart.

Months after leaving Ellie, Tommy seeks her out again and tells her to enact the revenge he once sought. Ellie refuses and Tommy rides away on a horse but Ellie does eventually decide to listen to him.

This is the last we see of Tommy Miller in the game.
