...surgeons? By which I of course mean the final 'combat' segment of the game, where you enter a room to see Ellie unconscious on the operating table, with three doctors staring at you in horror. So, how did we all handle the situation? I kinda panicked at first and didn't even realise there were all these choices... I shot the doctor who threatened me with little hesitation, because it felt necessary at the time and Joel was at a point where he didn't give a single shit anymore about anything besides Ellie, so it also felt in-character at that.
I pointed my gun at the other two, just to confirm that it was totally possible to shoot them as well, but I didn't go that far. They were staying out of the way for good reason and I knew they wouldn't actually try anything after watching the first get a bullet to the face.
