This thread is something else, the best posts are from people saying this is a betrayer for ALL fans, EVERYONE hates Abby, ABBY JUST THERE TO KILL JOEL, this is like game of Thrones!!! , This is not What ALL fans wanted!!! Telling by people that didnt played the first and never intended to play the second, telling fans What they should feel based on a leak that hás half wrong.
Ned Stark died in the first season and people loved it for example, the late seasons people complained no One died, people complained that in MCU Avengers and people never die, and when Someone loved dies ? This is What hapens.😂
For me the issue is more how they die or how they survived, if it makes sense and keeps the characters consistent. I was willing to wait for context as my post in here said, but the context actually just made it worse. Joel somehow forgetting his survival skills and Abby miraculously getting saved by him only to kill him anyway is certainly comparable to GoT characters being completely surrounded by zombies in one scene but then totally fine somehow in the next.
