Joel and Sarah in The Last of Us Video Game

Who was Joel’s wife in The Last of Us?

In The Last of Us video game, Joel does not have a wife. However, he does have a daughter named Sarah, who tragically dies during the initial outbreak of the Cordyceps fungus infection that leads to the collapse of civilization. The loss of his daughter has a profound impact on Joel’s character and is a driving force behind his actions throughout the game’s (and show’s) story.

Joel’s companion throughout much of the game is a teenage girl named Ellie, whom he is tasked with escorting across a post-apocalyptic United States in order to find a group of rebels called the Fireflies. Along the way, Joel and Ellie form a strong bond, and their relationship becomes a major focus of the game’s narrative.

Do we know anything about Sarah’s mother?

In The Last of Us video game, very little is revealed about Sarah’s mother, and it is left to the player’s imagination to fill in the details. Sarah’s mother is never shown or heard from directly in the game, and her fate is unknown.

However, the game’s creators have hinted at some of the details of Sarah’s backstory in interviews and supplementary materials. It is suggested that Sarah’s parents were divorced or separated, and that she was living with Joel at the time of the outbreak.

The lack of information about Sarah’s mother serves to highlight the profound impact that Sarah’s death had on Joel and his motivations throughout the game’s story. By keeping her mother a mystery, the game emphasizes the importance of the father-daughter relationship between Joel and Sarah, and the devastating loss that Joel experiences as a result of her death.
