That episode title is important as, prior to her death, Tess reveals that she is infected and has been for a short while. Joel, Ellie, and Tess enter the State House after moving past a group of infected not far from the building. After being surprised, Joel shoots an infected no the ground, alerting the group they had previously seen.

Knowing her end is near, Tess kicks cans of oil over the ground, which is littered with grenades, while rushing Joel and Ellie out of the State House. Joel tries to fight back before she tells them to leave, but she admonishes him to “save who you can save,” as he should know she is beyond help.

She sets fire to the State House with her lighter from outside as Tess gets attacked by other infected, blowing the building up with Tess inside. Joel and Ellie understand her sacrifice, and it’s almost certain Joel has taken her final message to heart as he leads Ellie to their next destination.
