In this spoiler free chapter of our game guide to The Last of Us 2 we have prepared a detailed walkthrough of the Confrontation stage. Abby rushes to the theater to find Owen and Mel's torturer.
Go to the right of the entrance. You'll find a slightly lowered ladder - help Lev to climb it. Then jump up. First, go to the radio room, then go down the stairs. After that you'll come across Tommy.
Duel with Ellie
Ellie will escape to the back of the theatre by running away behind the curtain. Run after the girl, and you'll have to confront her after a cutscene. First, get away from Ellie (who has a gun) by hiding behind a crate. Go left and quietly sneak out of the area. You can use your sense to track down enemies in order to find out Ellie's whereabouts. You need to get close enough to attack her in melee combat.
After the first fight, you will fall to a lower level. Quickly escape from the shotgun blast, step back and go inside the room. You need to move away from Ellie one more time. Be quiet, sneak around and don't walk into noise-generating objects and items (chains, glass on the ground etc.). Get closer to Ellie - for example, you can use the bottle to lure her into another corner of the room and sneak behind her back.
After the second fight, Ellie will escape. You'll have to do it all over again. However, this time Ellie will be much more careful. Instead of attacking you directly, she'll be using a Molotov cocktails. The girl will keep her distance and you have to approach her slowly. Sneak around and wait for the right moment.
After you reach to Ellie for the third time, you'll watch a drastic scene. This stage will be over. Thankfully, Ellie will survive. Abby too.
