Who Is Tommy in The Last of Us?

In The Last of Us, Tommy is Joel’s younger brother and Uncle to Sarah. He and Joel managed to survive together after the Outbreak devoured the earth, and Joel lost Sarah.

What Happens to Tommy in The Last of Us?

Tommy eventually leaves the Fireflies and sets up the community of Jackson with his wife, Maria. When Joel eventually finds him, Tommy agrees to take Ellie the rest of the way.

However, the plan changes and Tommy is left to defend Jackson. Later, Joel and Ellie return, living there comfortably until Joel’s death in The Last of Us Part 2.

Afterward, he begins to hunt down Joel’s killer, Abby. His journey sees him gravely injured, which, in addition to the loss of his brother, turns him into a vengeful and bitter man.

He separates from his wife and attempts to encourage Ellie to kill Abby once and for all. After a while, his pleas work, and Ellie sets off for revenge once more.

While Tommy’s fate is nearly worse than death, it doesn’t compare to the gruesome death of another beloved character in The Last of Us.
