The Last of Us spoilers follow.
During 'Kin', the two brothers are finally reunited in Jackson, Wyoming, where Joel discovers that Tommy is now part of a commune.
Speaking about the pair's barroom confrontation, Luna explained that when rehearsing the scene the two actors "completely rewrote" it.
"In that session, Pedro and I completely rewrote the scene. We didn't change a single letter. We just restructured the way that this scene unfolds," he told Entertainment Weekly.
"[Writer] Craig [Mazin] being the mensch and the incredible artist that he is, he was like: 'This is better.'
Luna explained that "it made it feel right in terms of the way we hit each of these beats", elaborating: "How I eventually build the courage to stand up to [Joel] and tell him the truth and tell him what is an extremely joyful thing for me but potentially a very hurtful thing for him to hear, that I was gonna be a father.
"That was pretty much the only scene on the slate that whole day," he added. "It was just Pedro and I being brothers and doing what brothers do: laughing, joking, needling each other, and eventually fighting."
Elsewhere in 'Kin', the episode appeared to introduce a key character from the second The Last of Us game in Dina, Ellie's future love interest.
