One of many benefits of HBO transferring the timeline of The Final of Us backward 10 years from the online game’s supply materials is that we are actually dwelling within the 12 months through which it’s set. We get to fondly keep in mind moments from the present by screaming, crying, and throwing up as we reach particular dates. Right now, August 29, 2023 is the day Invoice and Frank received married…amongst different issues.
