This episode — not to spoil anything, though we have seen it — will follow Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) still on the run in Kansas City. At the end of the last episode, they were held up by young Sam (Keivonn Woodard).
In the below trailer, we see Sam's older brother Henry (Lamar Johnson) talking to Henry via sign language. The Last of Us game creator Neil Druckmann told The Washington Post, "One of the changes that we made for the TV show is we made Sam deaf ... That kind of constraint led to really interesting storytelling decisions that, in some ways, make that sequence more impactful than it is in the game."
Sam and Henry appear to be hiding out from the ruthless Kathleen (Melanie Lynskey), who seems to have her reasons for being kinda evil. Check out our The Last of Us episode 4 recap and review for all the details on that.
That said, you might want to check out the trailer (HBO's already confirmed The Last of Us season 2, by the way). Here's everything you need to know about how to watch The Last of Us episode 5 in Australia.
How to watch The Last of Us episode 5 online in Australia
As expected, The Last of Us has taken the usual spot allotted to HBO's blockbuster shows in Australia, with new episodes fast-tracked every Monday until the first season ends on March 13, 2023. Episode 5 of The Last of Us is titled 'Endure and Survive' runs 59 minutes long.
As Australia's streaming home for HBO content, Binge is the easiest and most affordable way to stream The Last of Us in Australia. Pricing starts at just AU$10 a month for one SD stream, moving up to AU$16 a month for two HD streams and AU$18 a month for four HD streams.
On top of being able to stream current HBO hits like House of the Dragon, Succession and The White Lotus, a Binge subscription also gets you access to the vast majority of HBO's celebrated back catalogue, which includes the likes of Game of Thrones, The Sopranos and The Wire.
Alternatively, if you haven't signed up to Binge before, you can take advantage of the service's generous 14-day free trial period, allowing you check out The Last of Us at no cost to you.
Another way to stream The Last of Us in Australia is via Foxtel Now, a streaming service which aims to provide subscribers with the complete Foxtel experience. That means you also get access to live Foxtel channels, along with the option of additional Sports and Movies packages.
That said, Foxtel Now isn't exactly cheap — prices start at AU$25 a month for the mandatory Essentials pack, with extra charges for any additional packs you add on after that.
Thankfully, The Last of Us is part of the Essentials pack, so you won't need to pay anything extra in order to watch it. Additionally, those who've never signed up to Foxtel Now before can check service without paying anything, thanks to the service's 10-day free trial period.
