The Last of Us Episode 4 trailer has been released. HBO released next week’s trailer for the post-apocalyptic series based on the PlayStation video game of the same name, teasing a new character, Catherine, the ruthless of the revolutionary movement in Kansas City. Melanie Lynskey, known for her work on Yellowjackets, will play the role — which means big trouble for our survivor duo, Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey). The episode, titled “Please Hold My Hand,” is directed by Jeremy Webb (The Umbrella Academy) and is reported to be just 50 minutes long—a lot shorter than the 75 minutes in episode 3. Episode 4 of The Last of Us will premiere Feb. 6 at 8:30 a.m. ET / Feb. 5 at 9 p.m. ET on Disney+ Hotstar and HBO Max, respectively.

The trailer for The Last of Us Episode 4 opens with the introduction of Ellie (Ramsay)’s new favorite — the two loathing the smell of coffee while taking a break in the woods. “It smells like burnt sh-t,” she tells Joel (Pascal), who, unfazed by her comment, immediately sips loudly from the flask. While not explicitly mentioned, but to Ellie’s credit, the coffee must have been filtered with some smelly rag or his socks – look they’ve been traveling for a while. Episode 3 introduces our unlikely greasy-haired ally Bill (Nick Offerman), who has a surprising love story with his TV partner Frank (Murray Bartlett).

The Last of Us Episode 4 trailer has Joel and Ellie continuing their journey to Wyoming. Ellie, who is not familiar with driving, tries to help with the map navigation, causing the two to stop in front of hostile territory. “It’s my second day in the fucking car, man. Stop it,” she said, noticing an injured survivor begging for their help. Thinking he might have been bitten and infected, Joel continued driving the car and hit some debris. “This is too much. It has to stop,” an unseen hostage tells new character Catherine (Linskey), who is seen holding a gun to his head. “Where is he?” she asked with tears in her eyes, presumably referring to Joel. The Last of Us Episode 4 trailer then cuts to some action sequences showing our duo sneaking through a run-down town and fighting the last surviving townspeople.

“We’ll get through this,” Joel assures Ellie at the end of The Last of Us Episode 4 trailer before hitting the streets. Back to new character Catherine, on Twitter writer Neil Druckman praised her performance on the series. “OMG! You smashed your episode! Can’t wait for people to see your character!”, He saidconfirming that Lynskey will appear in multiple episodes.

Last week, HBO renewed The Last of Us series for a second season, and Druckmann added that it will explore events from the award-winning video game sequel, The Last of Us II. Craig Mazin, showrunner and director of The Last of Us Episode 1, also said the sequel could end up being split in two, claiming that the story is “worth more than a season of TV.”

New episodes of The Last of Us air every Monday at 8:30am IST on Disney+ Hotstar and Sunday at 9pm ET on HBO Max. Season 1 consists of nine episodes.
