    Museum Foreshadowing

    From Redditor u/MCopous:

    In this scene, Ellie searches the other Museum building by herself and comes across this display of a Moose being surrounded by a pack of wolves. This to me seems to be foreshadowing Joel's fate with the Salt Lake crew (now WLF or Wolves). The moose symbolizes Joel who is large, intimidating, and dangerous when threatened. Abby and the rest of the former Fireflies have built up Joel to be a formidable callous predator which is why they hunt him with a sizeable group. Wolves hunt in packs for the same reason.

    This is interesting from a narrative structure standpoint because the scene it is foreshadowing has already happened but chronologically it won't happen for another 3 years.
