Ellie doesn't kill Abby at the end because upon experiencing flashbacks of Joel and thinking about what he meant to her, she realizes what Abby's father must have meant to Abby.
Joel killed Abby's father, which drove Abby to kill Joel; as much as Ellie misses Joel, she understands why Abby killed him and accepts it.
Hope it was worth all the killing.
Probably letting Abby alive will make all the nightmares about Joel torture(which btw was not necessary of Abby doing it in front of Ellie as if Ellie was a part of something Joel did in the past) go away. Also, wonder if that will bring back Dina and Jessie.
