Sequel thoughts: Ellie's immunity

5 replies 183 views Edited May 12, 2014

I've read a lot of threads that make predictions about the direction of the sequel and have a few thoughts.  First, I believe that Naughty Dog can tell another great story in that same universe without Joel and Ellie. 

There must be other people who are immune.  I know that Ellie is presented as the only one, but everyone lives in a world with basically no communication with other towns.  Maybe Joel wasn't really lying when he told Ellie she wasn't the only immune person.

Even if she is the only immune, there are at least two other people who know it.  Tommy was a Firefly.  How do you think he reacted when Joel and Ellie showed back up? If the sequel does star Joel and Ellie, I can see a couple of scenarios playing out.

Ellie finds out Joel lied to her, leaves on her own (or with Tommy). The Knife in the Window is her message to Joel...

Tommy takes Ellie against her will, Joel pursues...

Thoughts?

If you haven't played a game and you jump into its specific forum you deserve to have it spoiled

 

Heck, if you go on the interweb and have something spoiled you didn't want to, it's on you

Dude, I already played the game. I'm talking about OTHER people who haven't played the game. Let's say they wanted to ask a question on the forums and they come here. The first thing they'll see is "Ellie's immunity".. Also keep in mind that people who haven't played the game are planning on playing the REMASTERED edition. So yes, they'll also come here to ask questions regarding that as well......

I take it I'm not the only person who noticed those recordings heavily implied they had found other immune people as well. The part that got me thinking is where Marlene seemed to be holding onto the hope that curing the infection would make everything go back to the way it was. She seems to completely overlook the fact that there would still be a mess of infected attacking every thing on site, as well as the bottom feeders of humanity clinging to the out skirts of settlements and taking advantage of the anarchy. Granted the view we got of the over all world was limited to two people, but it seems like several years have gone by since the outbreak, and mankind has since adapted to survive world 2.0
