At the very beginning of the game when you are playing as Sarah, there is an implied death of a dog outside of her house. It's barking until you go next to the window, then there is a squeal of pain, and then silence.

Ellie is almost raped by david. Though not explicitly stated as his intentions its very heavily implied. He is on top of her appearing to be starting towards raping her right before she kills him brutally with his machette. He fortunately doesnt manage to get any of her clothes off or ripped but it seems as though he did touch her innappropriately before she got him off her

It's optional but at the end of the game, you can brutally murder someone by shooting them with a flamethrower. Thinking about it now you can basically do it to any enemy in the game ( If you have equipped the flamethrower )

One of the ways to stealth kill enemies is strangling some, as well as a scene where a character who cannot swims nearly drowns, but is later revived

"The Infected" are human beings whose bodies have been taken over by a variation of the Cordyceps Fungus. While it is unclear if they are still self aware or not, one character expresses his concerns that the person they used to be is still under there and just unable to control themselves.

Joel has repressed his PTSD but it is very clearly there and plays a major part in the story.
In the Spring chapter of the game Ellie is distant after the ordeal with David, could possibly be considered PTSD?

The infected are zombie-like creatures consumed by a fungal infection. The length of infection determines how malformed the body becomes. Some appear fairly normal, while others have significant fungal growths protruding from their bodies.

Depends on who you ask, both main characters make it out alive and settle down in a nice town. The game ends on a big lie between them though and they go through alot to get there.

At the beginning of the game, there is a car crash where a speeding car rams the side of yours. There are a couple others similar to that. Two of the four major car crashes involves you in one of the vehicles.

There is a mention of a plane crash by Ellie near the end of the game, but there are no visuals to accompany the dialogue.

While the character doesnt die from it, the scene is made in a way to make the player believe the character might have drown.
