In the event 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, huge 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 the whole lot that occurred and our greatest WTF questions, whereas nonetheless trying to recuperate from that brutal character loss of life.
Yellowjackets ending defined
Quite a bit 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 presumably the chief of a full blown cult based mostly on what occurred within the wilderness.
Within the finale, grownup Natalie, on the verge of suicide, is kidnapped by what seems to be a gaggle of cult lackies. It is then instantly revealed that Lottie Matthews drained Travis’ checking account, which means she or folks in her group may very well be liable for Travis’ loss of life.
We additionally see Van and Misty be a part of Lottie for an odd ritual within the wilderness. Is Misty performing 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, provided that she would not seem within the current storyline and Shauna attended a bizarre party/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 women primarily banish Jackie from the cabin, which means she has to sleep exterior. Actually and figuratively the women 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 consequence. Completely executed by the present. None of it felt outlandish. It might 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 discovered what occurred to Taissa’s household canine. Taissa minimize 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 begin calling the “Cult Emblem”.
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 minimize 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 remains to be alive, or a terrifying spiritual cult has sprung up following her actions within the wilderness.
Who will get killed and ‘eaten’ in the beginning?
I’ve rewatched the present’s opening sequence to see if I might work out who will get spiked on the very begin of the present.
At first I used to be satisfied it was Lottie. Satisfied. My working concept was the women 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 particular person as Jackie, however after the season finale it is fairly clear that particular person is not Jackie. It may very well 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?
Critically man, does anybody care about Javi? The place the hell has he gone?
Loads of folks imagine Javi is Adam within the current storyline. I do not purchase that for a second. I believe Javi 100% dies within the wilderness, however I do not assume he is useless proper now. I think Javi can 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 assumed the present can be properly served to kill off a person character early, simply to let the viewers know that nobody was protected. Effectively, that occurred pretty conclusively within the finale, so we all know all bets are off.
I actually imagine that Coach Ben’s days are numbered and there is not any manner Javi is making it out of the wilderness.
What occurred to Shauna’s child?
Previously, Shauna is pregnant. Within the current she has a daughter, Callie, who she continuously bickers with. Is Callie that child? These timelines do not actually match up, so…
What occurred to Shauna’s child? There is no manner they’re gonna eat the newborn. That is an excessive amount of for a mainstream present like Yellowjackets. Will they attempt to pull off a “instantly not pregnant” plot line? In all probability not, sinceactually simply did that final yr.
Unsure how that is gonna play out.
Shauna is sure to miscarry. No manner she might carry the newborn to time period in such a disturbing surroundings! Giving delivery can be so dangerous… however so would miscarrying. Both manner, it is not going to be time.
Who was Adam actually?
Adam was hilariously stabbed to loss of life by Shauna, however is that the tip of that exact 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 believe the whole lot 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 referred to as “Loxipene” which is most definitely a reference to Loxapene, a medicine for schizophrenia. In episode 3, nevertheless, 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 imprecise 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 state of affairs?
There’s one concept doing the rounds that an deserted mining operation is positioned up from the purple river. Whoever died within the cabin may need some connection.
Why was that stag all maggoty on the within?
I am unable to think about we’ll ever get a solution to this, however how was this animal up and strolling round with its inside organs all hollowed out and coated in maggots? I NEED TO KNOW!
Who’s the Man with no Eyes and why does Taissa hold 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 airplane crash. He seems simply within the distance: pallid pores and skin, darkish hair and, after all, huge gaping holes the place his eyes needs to be.
At first, it looks like there may very well be a purely psychological cause behind this spectre. Perhaps Taissa was traumatized from her dying grandma speaking to “a person with no eyes” and her creativeness stuffed within the blanks. Nonetheless, coupled with Taissa’s son Sammy’s habits — protecting his home windows with drawings of eyes and eyeless folks, his doll disappearing from the highest of the cabinet solely to seem on the basement ground with its eyes eliminated — we start to assume that The Man with No Eyes really 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 parts. 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 non secular connection to the forest are greater than shows of her schizophrenia?
