in a recent interview threonineDandridge for Marlene and Joel at our last‘end. While both characters strip Ellie of her agency and give her choices, Dandridge feels her character doesn’t keep Ellie in the dark the way Joel does. See Dandridge’s full review below:
“Well, I’d say there’s probably a question mark about that. I know Marlene didn’t make it clear [that information to] Ellie, because she doesn’t want to worry her, but I think they have a more pragmatic relationship. She may have even hinted at it, which makes Ellie all the more conflicted since she doesn’t have the self-determination that Joel took from her.
In the end, black and white, yes, both have choices from her, but I think Marlene gave her more information. I don’t think she lied to her explicitly. She may have missed some facts, but she’s not going to blatantly lie to her.
Also, in this story, the relationship between Marlene and Joel contains a lot of history between them. As Marlene said, both have a lot of possibilities and they always have similarities with each other. But there is always estrangement and hatred between them because of Marlene’s relationship with her brother Tommy. [Gabriel Luna]As Firefly, he created a physical and psychological rift between them.
So he has another factor, which is that in this case, he won’t give any two F’s for what Marlene wants, even though she’s making all the arguments, the sink is over. on him, try to negotiate with him. ”
