Stuff like this is why I always assumed the Fireflies are full of shit at the end of The Last of Us and had no idea how to make a cure and were just going to murder a person for nothing. I assumed that was the intended reading, but maybe it's just a splash of bad writing in an otherwise brilliantly written game and show?
@mitchw that’s how it reads to me but I don’t think that’s how it is intended! I think the writers, the Fireflies, and Joel all believe there is a sure shot at a cure that requires immediate murder. It’s seemingly intended to be a trolley problem scenario, not a depiction of utter depravity or lunatic recklessness. At least, that’s the impression I got from the second game and from the delta between the first game and the show.
