The runtime of The Last of Us episode 3 is 1 hour and 20 minutes or 80 minutes. Yes, we’re back to having a super-long installment of the show, putting it much closer to the premiere episode than the second outing, which only reached in at a good 55 minutes. The original the last of us was having ten episodes in its first season instead of the nine it does now. Hence, it’s expected that some episodes are this lengthy, especially the premiere ones.
“Long Long Time” will present video game actors like Bill and Frank, and it’s also anticipated to feature some significant modifications that may yield quite a response from some video game fans. An extended cut of episode 3 may have featured more of what was already displayed. This would contain more of Bill living alone as he assembled and planted the lures around the town, a more in-depth initial scene as Bill searches Frank to see if his visitor is more than meets the eye, more of Bill and Frank’s following connection as it evolved into a powerful partnership, and possibly more of the couple’s final moments together.
