Tonight, the world gets to watch The Last of Us episode 3 online. And this is one episode you're not going to want to miss. Trust us on that.

The Last of Us episode 3: AU release date, time

AU date and time: The Last of Us episode 3 airs today (Monday, January 30) at 1PM (AEST) on Binge and Foxtel Now.

With seven words — "Not today, you new world order jackboots," Nick Offerman made the internet as giddy as Ron Swanson ordering breakfast. Yes, the trailer for The Last of Us episode 3 begins with those words, as survivor Bill (Offerman) hides in his bunker. This is the perfect casting news, giving Nick Offerman a well-stocked bunker in the Cordyceps-ridden world is like giving us an alternate reality version of Parks and Rec's favorite Libertarian.

Once Bill and his new pal Frank (The White Lotus alum Murray Bartlett) are done debating the Arby's business model, they're going to take audiences on a fantastic ride. We dare not say anything more to spoil the episode, though. 

The two characters were referenced by Tess in last week's chapter of the series, and this episode will see Joel (Pedro Pascal) taking Ellie (Bella Ramsey) to them for protection. Want a refresher on how we got here? Check out our The Last of Us episode 2 recap for a detailed breakdown.

We're curious if The Last of Us episode 3 might break Binge's servers, as interest in the show seems to be on the rise. In our spoiler-free The Last of Us review, we only hinted at how emotionally impactful this episode is.

That said, you might want to check out this trailer for The Last of Us episode 3, (or skip it, if you want to go in as blind as a clicker). We've also got the news on HBO confirming The Last of Us season 2, as well as everything you need to know about how to watch The Last of Us episode 3, no matter where you are.
