I'm theorizing that she's going to die somehow, because I'm thinking back to the announcement trailer and how Ellie said she was 'going to find and kill every last one of 'em'; why else would she do that if not for some type of revenge? Joel's obviously still alive. For now.
Nadine wasn't really a villain, she just has a contract with Raffe putting her in opposition to Nate. Also we don't know her sexuality though Naughty Dog is very welcome to pair her up with Chloe and make me a very happy person.

Dina can be a not a real villain while still having betrayal on her part inspire Ellie's roaring ramage of revenge rather then her death, leaving this character available to appear elsewhere then just Act One of this game.
So I've forgotten where someone shared that video of the animations in the gameplay trailer being deconstructed (it's an hour long and it's great) but here it is again anyway:
The guy who made this video is actually a dev - he's the senior tech animator for EA motive and he Tweeted saying "The thing to know about Naughty Dog gameplay trailers is the next day, every other developer in the world is frame-by-framing it, trying to figure out how the hell they did that."
Another dev responded saying "Yeah I can explain a few things and how to do it. The thing here is that they are doing everything right and they are doing things that you wouldn't even consider doing. know of easy ways to do these things in scripted scenes... but a lot of that was not scripted."
