Tonight, we watch The Last of Us episode 6 online on Sunday, as it was meant to be. And after last week's events, we bet you're eager to see how Ellie and Joel are holding up.

The Last of Us HBO Max episode 6 release date, time

U.S. date and time: The Last of Us episode 6 drops today (Sunday, Feb. 19) at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT on HBO and HBO Max (opens in new tab).
The Last of Us U.K. release date: Monday (Feb. 20) at 2 a.m. GMT on Sky Atlantic and NOW.
The Last of Us AU release date: Monday (Feb. 20) at 1 p.m. AEDT on Binge (opens in new tab) and Foxtel Now (opens in new tab).

As detailed in Tom's Guide's The Last of Us episode 5 recap and review, Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) just survived a chaotic stretch. Not only did a Bloater rise, but foes and friends alike fell. You've watched that episode right? I'm only being vague so you have time to go back in case you haven't.

As for what the episode 6 trailer shows us, the weary travelers seem to finally find a little peace. But after Joel finally reconnects with his brother Tommy (Gabriel Luna), the two disagree on what's to be done. Tommy, it seems, isn't happy with the fact that they killed people to stay alive.

This episode also introduces Rutina Wesley's Maria, who leads the survivors in Jackson, who have something of an actual city.

To see those details and more, check out the below 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 6, no matter where you are.
