Are you watching the Showtime hit Yellowjackets? If not, you ought to be. This present has the most effective excessive idea ever…
A non-public aircraft carrying an elite girls’s highschool soccer workforce crashes within the wilderness, leaving a squad of teenage ladies to fend for themselves. Chaos, violence and potential cannibalism ensue.
Yellowjackets takes cues from Misplaced, bouncing forwards and backwards between what befell earlier than and after the crash. And very similar to Misplaced, this present thrives on intrigue and thriller. Briefly, now we have questions. We even have theories!
Listed here are a number of of our most burning questions. On the time of writing, 9 episodes of the primary season have been launched. We’ll replace this after the tenth episode has aired.
Who’s the Antler Queen?
That is the final burning query.
At first I used to be sure it was Misty, then I used to be sure it was Lottie.
Now I reckon it may very well be completely anybody. Taissa? Jackie? Who the hell is aware of. Apparently not even the forged of the present is aware of who the Antler Queen is. I reckon this may very well be a thriller that continues to be unsolved for seasons to come back (Yellowjackets has been renewed for a second season, however was pitched as a 5 season present.)
Who will get killed and ‘eaten’ at first?
One of many first issues I did after watching the tip of episode 9 was rewatch the present’s opening sequence to see if I may work out who will get spiked on the very begin of the present.
After rewatching, and being conversant in all of the characters, I am satisfied it is Lottie. My working principle is the ladies have banded in opposition to her and her witchcraft methods and determined to… eat her to make bizarre stuff not occur?
Look, it is a working principle.
What the hell occurred to Jackie?
Properly, she’s useless proper? Shauna attended an annual creepy lunch with Jackie’s warped mother and father for her “birthday” so it is a secure wager she’s useless.
However how? Or is Jackie the one orchestrating all of the bizarre stuff going down within the current timeline?
Jackie is probably the most central character within the present not participating within the current day storyline. That in itself is attention-grabbing. The opening episode appeared to nearly body Jackie as a central character, so we may be certain her “loss of life” might be an enormous deal within the present.
Who’s subsequent to die?
I actually imagine this present can be effectively served to kill off a serious character quickly to let the viewers know that nobody is secure. It wants a giant Recreation of Thrones second, primarily. I actually imagine that Coach Ben’s days are numbered and there is no approach Javi is making it out of the wilderness.
What occurred to Shauna’s child?
Prior to now, 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 not any approach 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 “instantly not pregnant” plot line? Most likely not, sinceactually simply did that final yr.
Undecided how that is gonna play out.
Shauna is sure to miscarry. No approach she may carry the child to time period in such a disturbing surroundings! Giving delivery can be so dangerous… however so would miscarrying. Both approach, it isn’t 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 rapidly. 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 sincere, I am hoping issues do not go full-blown supernatural.
I feel every thing Lottie has predicted — the river flowing with blood, for instance — does, as Taissa argues, have logical explanations (the river is outwardly operating crimson from concentrated minerals). Though, to be truthful, Taissa additionally turns right into a dirt-eating tree-climber at night time, so she won’t be probably the most dependable supply.
What was Lottie taking her treatment for?
Lottie is taking a drugs referred to as “Loxipene” which is most probably a reference to Loxapene, a drugs for schizophrenia. In episode 3, nevertheless, Lottie runs out of her treatment. Not lengthy after, we see her conduct 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 principle doing the rounds that an deserted mining operation is situated up from the crimson 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 preserve 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, after all, large gaping holes the place his eyes must be.
At first, it looks as if there may very well 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 conduct — protecting his home windows with drawings of eyes and eyeless folks, 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 possibly 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 displays of her schizophrenia?
