When you’ve simply completed the season 1 finale of, then we’re with you. The brand new Showtime hit introduced haunting developments for Shauna and Jackie, massive psychological reveals for Taissa and extra hazard for Natalie. It was a spectacular finale that led to extra questions than solutions, and we’re not mad about it.
Let’s dive into all the pieces that occurred and our largest WTF questions, whereas nonetheless making an attempt to get well from that brutal character loss of life.
Yellowjackets ending defined
So much went down within the season finale of Yellowjackets, so let’s undergo the most important reveals.
Lottie is alive?
The ultimate twist of the finale was the most important one: Lottie is doubtlessly alive and probably the chief of a full blown cult primarily based on what occurred within the wilderness.
Within the finale, grownup Natalie, on the verge of suicide, is kidnapped by what seems to be a bunch of cult lackies. It is then instantly revealed that Lottie Matthews drained Travis’ checking account, which means she or individuals in her group might be answerable for Travis’ loss of life.
We additionally see Van and Misty be a part of Lottie for a wierd ritual within the wilderness. Is Misty appearing as a double agent within the current storyline? That is Misty we’re speaking about so something is feasible.
Jackie is useless
Clearly we sorta knew Jackie was useless, on condition that she does not seem within the current storyline and Shauna attended a bizarre celebration/memorial with Jackie’s mother and father. However now we all know for absolute sure she dies within the wilderness.
After a brutal argument with Shauna within the cabin, bringing Jackie and Shauna’s latent points to the floor, the ladies basically banish Jackie from the cabin, which means she has to sleep exterior. Actually and figuratively the ladies freeze Jackie out since, in a single day, an enormous quantity of snow falls and Jackie freezes to loss of life.
It is a brutal, haunting end result. Completely executed by the present. None of it felt outlandish. It may completely have occurred and can nearly definitely function a turning level for the group and their potential descent into insanity.
Taissa has a tousled shrine beneath her home
This was one of many craziest, most shocking reveals for me. We lastly came upon what occurred to Taissa’s household canine. Taissa lower its head off and used it to create a completely warped shrine beneath her home.
What else was on the shrine? Her son’s creepy doll, alongside a drawing of what I’m now going to start out calling the “Cult Brand”.
Now the query is: Did Taissa do that in her creepy dirt-eating, tree climbing, sleep strolling state? Or did she do it consciously. I am guessing it was finished in sleep strolling state, however we did lower to a creepy smile broaching throughout Taissa’s face after the reveal.
Did Taissa create this shrine to win the election?
Our burning questions…
Who’s the Antler Queen?
At this level is appears crystal clear it is Lottie.
Not solely that however from the finale it is fairly clear that both Lottie continues to be alive, or a terrifying spiritual cult has sprung up following her actions within the wilderness.
Who will get killed and ‘eaten’ at first?
I’ve rewatched the present’s opening sequence to see if I may determine who will get spiked on the very begin of the present.
At first I used to be satisfied it was Lottie. Satisfied. My working principle was the ladies banded in opposition to her and her witchcraft methods and determined to… eat her to make bizarre stuff not occur?
Now I am not so positive. Many early theories had this individual as Jackie, however after the season finale it is fairly clear that individual is not Jackie. It might be anybody at this level. (A part of me nonetheless thinks it is Lottie and this cult is sort of a group of Yellowjackets obsessives who began a cult in her wake.)
The place is Javi?
Severely man, does anybody care about Javi? The place the hell has he gone?
Loads of individuals consider Javi is Adam within the current storyline. I do not purchase that for a second. I feel Javi 100% dies within the wilderness, however I do not suppose he is useless proper now. I believe Javi may have an enormous half to play in future tousled rituals throughout season 2 and past.
Who’s subsequent to die?
In an earlier model of this story I mentioned I believed the present can be effectively served to kill off a person character early, simply to let the viewers know that nobody was secure. Nicely, that occurred pretty conclusively within the finale, so we all know all bets are off.
I actually consider that Coach Ben’s days are numbered and there is not any means Javi is making it out of the wilderness.
What occurred to Shauna’s child?
Up to now, Shauna is pregnant. Within the current she has a daughter, Callie, who she always bickers with. Is Callie that child? These timelines do not actually match up, so…
What occurred to Shauna’s child? There is no means they’re gonna eat the child. That is an excessive amount of for a mainstream present like Yellowjackets. Will they attempt to pull off a “abruptly not pregnant” plot line? In all probability not, sinceactually simply did that final 12 months.
Undecided how that is gonna play out.
Shauna is sure to miscarry. No means she may carry the child to time period in such a hectic setting! Giving start can be so dangerous… however so would miscarrying. Both means, it is not going to be a great time.
Who was Adam actually?
Adam was hilariously stabbed to loss of life by Shauna, however is that the tip of that specific thriller? It by no means sat proper with me that Adam pursued Shauna so intensely and fell in love so shortly. Was he only a Yellowjackets fan boy that grew up with the thriller, or is there one thing extra happening there?
Can Lottie see the long run for actual?
To be trustworthy, I am hoping issues do not go full-blown supernatural.
I feel all the pieces Lottie has predicted — the river flowing with blood, for instance — does, as Taissa argues, have logical explanations (the river is outwardly working purple from concentrated minerals). Though, to be honest, Taissa additionally turns right into a dirt-eating tree-climber at night time, so she may not be essentially the most dependable supply.
What was Lottie taking her treatment for?
Lottie is taking a medicine known as “Loxipene” which is most definitely a reference to Loxapene, a medicine for schizophrenia. In episode 3, nonetheless, Lottie runs out of her treatment. Not lengthy after, we see her habits begin to change — she’s getting paranoid, turns into quieter, and begins making fairly obscure and unnerving statements. It is price noting that, so far as we all know, Lottie hasn’t informed any of the others about her sickness.
Who died within the cabin? Is that this a haunting/cursed/ghost scenario?
There’s one principle doing the rounds that an deserted mining operation is positioned up from the purple river. Whoever died within the cabin might need some connection.
Why was that stag all maggoty on the within?
I can not think about we’ll ever get a solution to this, however how was this animal up and strolling round with its inner organs all hollowed out and lined in maggots? I NEED TO KNOW!
Who’s the Man with no Eyes and why does Taissa maintain seeing him?
The Man With No Eyes seems in episode 3 — first as an apparition seen by each Taissa and her grandmother simply earlier than Grandma dies, and later within the woods after the aircraft crash. He seems simply within the distance: pallid pores and skin, darkish hair and, in fact, massive gaping holes the place his eyes must be.
At first, it looks like there might be a purely psychological motive behind this spectre. Possibly Taissa was traumatized from her dying grandma speaking to “a person with no eyes” and her creativeness stuffed within the blanks. Nevertheless, coupled with Taissa’s son Sammy’s habits — overlaying his home windows with drawings of eyes and eyeless individuals, his doll disappearing from the highest of the cabinet solely to look on the basement ground with its eyes eliminated — we start to suppose that The Man with No Eyes truly lives on this realm and never simply in Taissa’s creativeness.
Previous Eyeless Lad seems briefly within the opening credit and sure, each time, I get spooked. It is a genuinely unnerving character and it is a shock to see him first seem, particularly when the primary two episodes featured negligible supernatural components. He is but to reappear, however perhaps he’ll make a comeback within the finale. A reappearance and even potential clues that he is a supernatural entity would open us as much as extra questions: If The Man with No Eyes is actual, does that imply Lottie’s visions and religious connection to the forest are greater than shows of her schizophrenia?
