  • The DLC still didn't tell us how Ellie got the scar on her right eyebrow, and the reason I'm asking is because I remember in one interview, Neil and Ashley wouldn't tell the interviewers; they were keeping it secret. So, I was watching the IGN spoilercast yesterday (Note: spoilercast, do not watch it unless you've played the game.) and the creators said that Left Behind was going to be the last game released from The Last of Us franchise. Honestly, I don't believe them, because they're really good at keeping secrets.

    Now what I'm beginning to wonder is why is Neil keeping it such a secret, if this is the so-called "last DLC"? I expect to see more to be honest, aha. I mean, I love the series, but I don't want it to be too much. The feels are such a burden, lol.

    What are your thoughts?

    • When Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley said that this will be the last of The Last Of Us, they were referring to the single player campaign of the first part. So there is still a fairly high chance that there will be a The Last Of Us 2.

      My guess is that Ellie could have gotten her scar while fighting wit someone. In American Dreams we can see that Ellie often got into fights with bullies...    At one point she even stabbed a boy in the leg.   So it could that that is how she got it...

      I don't think so, because I believe it was something more serious than just that if it's such a secret. Besides, on the very first page of the comic, before she got into the fight, her scar is noticeably there.

      Yeah, i also don't think that is was that. But i when i said "fights" i was refering to the part in the comic when some military person was listing all of Ellie's fights, and there were a lot more of them than just the one that we saw.

      And i also don't think that she had ever seen any Infected or anything like them before. Because she was in the military school all of the time. (She could have tried to break out or something like that)

      But i agree, it must be something bigger if it's worth being a secret.

    • http://www.wired.com/underwire/2014/02/last-of-us-dlc-interview/

      This interview tell us more abt the dlc and the future plan, druckmann himself imply that the DLC is about romantic storyline. And, one of the storyline he'd like to reveal in the future is Anna's story. Probably as a DLC.

      Druckmann: When you come with a character you think backstory. With Ellie, it’s just been a lingering thought; we didn’t have to commit to anything because there aren’t any romantic storylines in The Last of Us. When I did interviews with Faith for the comic book, and we both made the mistake when we were describing Ellie and Riley for the first time—we said Ellie was attracted to Riley. We meant, I think, that she was just really drawn to her, that she really looked up to her. But then I thought in the back of my mind, what if there’s something more than that? It became this interesting dimension of their relationship that we could explore.

      Druckmann: I still have this script written about Ellie’s mom [for] an animated short we were going to do, but it fell through. I’d love for that to see the light of day sometime, maybe as a DLC or a comic book. We’re brainstorming the next [Naughty Dog] project right now; some of the ideas are sequel ideas and some are brand-new IP. We’re just trying to see where our passions lie. Is there more to do here [in The Last of Us] both on a mechanical level or a narrative level, so we’re not repeating ourselves? Or is it this a good point to say goodbye to the characters in this world? It’s a very heavy decision, because whichever direction we go in commits us for the next three to four years. So we’re going to take several weeks to make that decision. Even if we do go to new IP, I’d still like an opportunity to revisit these characters and I’d love to have Faith come back and work with her again.

      It could be anything as she did get into some fights at school (doubt it was an affectionate place and that can cause violence), so that or getting a beating from DI/Teacher are most likely, 50/50 I'd say.

      That is probably the biggest hint of more stuff too come, face it there is much that can be made too this story line.

    • Here's something to note when thinking about a potential sequel: Naughty Dog has not yet made a game that was ultimately a stand alone. Think about it: Crash 1,2,3,the racing one Jak and Daxter 1,2,3,the racing one, Uncharted 1,2,3 and 4 upcoming.

      Well, that does give me an idea. You see, on the thread "Ellie's Immunity" there was a guy that came up with the theory that Ellie's mother got infected just before birthing Ellie, which could be how Ellie developed her immunity. So maybe, after birthing Ellie, her mom turned and almost killed her and was shot? I dunno, very unlikely, but hey. It's just an idea.

Do you think the soldiers' punishment will be if a kid misbehave or being aggressive toward a soldier? Ellie said to Riley that she don't have any strikes left at school, what will happen to Ellie if all her strikes are up? Will she be kick out of school or the QZ?

    • ^  You made a good point , especially In the harsh world she live in , the schools are like 10x worse so I will most likely try to run away too. LOL!!  That scar gotten be something real serious since Druckmann doesn't want to reveal it yet . I bet the only person who knew about the scar is Riley. Ellie mostly like told her how she got it or maybe Riley never asked. Who knows. :)

    • yeah,maybe,just maybe,the scar would be explained in the later DLC or the later sequel of the first The Last of Us.It's secret,he won't tell you and no one would ever know....no matter how many times you think about it.....

    • I always got the impression that Druckman didn't want to reveal the story behind it because hadn't really thought of a definitive story for the scar. They probably just initially added it to reflect Ellie's rugged upbringing in that world, and to make her character design more interesting. I always got the impression that he was just teasing/BSing interviewers who would ask him about it, being all mysterious, when he didn't really have a solid story behind it in mind, haha. It would be cool to hear an interesting explanation for how she got it.

    • I think i read an article about 2 weeks ago when i just typed TLOU in Google and clicked last 24 hours results. It was an interview with Druckmann, talking about how he would be happy to collaborate with Faith Erin Hicks again. And at first i thought that it was exactly the same article from February when he explained his reasons for making LB. But when i read closely, i realised he was talking about working with FEH to potentially bridge the gap between the events of LB and TLOU. So not going back in Ellie's past but perhaps to dig even further in Ellie/Riley dynamic and even more intriguing-Ellie/Marlene relationship. Now this seems like a long stretch but perhaps there is some meat to this bone and one i would be happy to read one day.

      Indeed, that's one of the clues that made me develop that theory.

    • ^If we're both thinking of the same thread, then if you read further there were some posters who looked up the science and found that immunity isn't something that is "passed" from mother to infant. 

        Loading editor
    • It depends on what causes the immunity. If it's genetic then, yes, it could be passed on. However, the theory outlined above is that Anna was going to Turn eventually, which happens within a few days maximum and rules out her having any genetic immunity. In any case, I can't see it being possible for her to carry a child to term when Infected if not immune.

      I'm wondering if, early on, the Fireflies had a lot of bleeding-edge biological researchers on payroll doing stuff that FEDRA simply coudln't allow because it was so illegal and unethical. I've wondered for a while if Anna volunteered to carry a genetically-altered fetus that the biologists believed might be immune. Did they find out that Ellie was slowly Turning her mother through the placental blood barrier? Or, after carrying the child, did Anna just go back to her duties and died on the line for the Cause?

      This theory has a certain chilling plausibility but falls down because, if the Fireflies knew that Ellie might be immune, I can't see them having ever let her out of their control, especially to let her go to a FEDRA-controlled school. That said, if the Fireflies did know and were manipulating Ellie's entire life for some reason, then everything, including her relationship with undercover Firefly operative #000129 Riley Abel, suddenly takes on a far darker and colder aspect.

      Ummm, yeah, that's the theory I was responding to.... I should have clarified "passed from mother to infant in that way."

    • My understanding was that Ellie's immunity has nothing to do with her or her mother, in fact I'm not sure I'd even call it immunity. She's more of a carrier near as I can tell. Thing is, she has cordyceps, but it's mutated somewhere between being transmitted and becoming symptomatic. She's been infected by a dud. Since she is already infected with cordyceps, she can't get more infected by a more symptomatic strain.

      Long story short, she got very lucky.

    • Maybe the scar's a birth mark? Or when Ellie was little she got in a struggle and got cut on her right eyebrow.

        Loading editor
    • I'd love for it to turn out to be something completely mundane; Ellie tripped when she was little and cut open her brow on a bit of furniture.

      FULL DISCLOSURE: This is autobiographical; I have exactly the same sort of scar (more-or-less in the same place as Ellie's) for exactly that reason.

        Loading editor
    • ^  @ BenRG, Really? WoW! That's pretty awesome. ;)  Anyway I really think somone gave  Ellie that scar. Maybe she got in a fight with a kid and he or she gave her the scar.

    • I played Uncharted2 a while ago and the Charakter Tenzin has a similar scar on his Eyebrow. I just thought, Naughty Dog like this kind of scar for coolness.

      But If Neil and Ashley keep it a secret there must be more than just a fight with some boys as a kid. There's no reason to keep that a secret.

      Or, maybe they don't know like Mayonnegg implied earlier and they are just reading the ideas we came up with.

      Hopefully they make a new DLC from it or even a new game.

      That's a probably explanation, however with how Ellie was she may have gone 'exploring' with Riley before or something and got the cut from falling or something.


      There's a lot of possibilites for how it happened though!

      Ah, I stand corrected, I haven't read the comics for a long while, I should do so again some time :)

      That makes it harder to think where it came from.

      Something inside me is telling me that it's just a normal scar from a mundane thing, like tripping and falling, but I want it to be something exciting!

      If it were bullies, they would have to be pretty bad to give a girl a scar like that, even if Ellie is pretty intense herself
