The Last of Us S1E6 recap: Joel, Ellie experience new emotional depths

The explicit change that has been gradually taking place over the past few weeks is marked in The Last of Us, episode 6 of HBO, "Kin."

Joel (Pedro Pascal) has been refusing to open his door to visitors for the past 20 years since the death of his daughter.

Joel, however, felt compelled to take Ellie (Bella Ramsey) with him on the trip out west because of their bond with Tess.

But something changed along the road, and Joel allowed Ellie inside.

Her inquiries, her concern for others, and her nasty language all crept into his heart gradually.

The majority of "Kin" is devoted to mending the rift between Joel and Tommy that has grown over time.
