There may not have been any flesh eating monsters or zombies in the latest episode of The Last Of Us [which aired on NOW on the 20th of February] but that’s not to say that there weren’t some suspicious characters lurking in the shadows, as several viewers spotted in what appears to be an awkward editing mistake.

As Joel – played by Pedro Pascal – and Ellie – played by Bella Ramsay – make their way over a snow laden bridge on their journey to Jackson, Wyoming, you may want to take a closer look as the camera pans out.

If you look closely, you can see what appears to be several crew members only slightly obscured by the snow-covered trees.

The scene in question takes place around 13 minutes into the sixth episode titled ‘Kin’, as the duo make their way across the ‘river of death’.

Let’s just say, at least it wasn’t a Clicker or that behemoth of a zombie from episode five. One fan even replied to Neil Druckmann – who wrote and directed The Last of Us video game franchise – to share the blunder. He has yet to respond.

It wouldn’t be the first time that a HBO show has accidentally left something in shot that shouldn’t have been there. Who could forget when both a plastic water bottle and a coffee cup made it to the final edit of episodes of Game Of Thrones?

Both of those mistakes were subsequently edited out but we are yet to see if The Last Of Us’ error will be erased.

Did you spot the error?

The Last of Us airs on HBO in the US, and on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW in the UK. The next episode will air on February 27th here in the UK.
