Yellowjackets: Our biggest burning questions and working theories

Observe this demonstrate.


Are you observing Yellowjackets? If not, you ought to be! This exhibit has the greatest large idea at any time…

A non-public aircraft carrying an elite women’s higher school soccer group crashes in the wilderness, leaving a squad of teenage women to fend for by themselves. Chaos, violence and opportunity cannibalism ensues. 

Yellowjackets takes cues from Dropped, bouncing again and forth involving what took location in advance of and immediately after the crash. And a great deal like Dropped, this present thrives on intrigue and secret. In short, we have queries. We also have theories!

Listed here are a handful of of our most burning concerns. At time of creating, nine episodes of the first season have been unveiled. We’ll update this following the 10th episode has been aired.


Who is the Antler Queen?


Yellowjackets’ opening sequence is amazing.


This is the supreme burning issue.

At very first I was sure it was Misty, then I was specified it was Lottie. 

Now I reckon it could be completely any one. Taissa? Jackie? Who the hell knows. Seemingly not even the cast of the show knows who the Antler Queen is. I reckon this could be a mystery that stays unsolved for seasons to appear (Yellowjackets has been renewed for a second period, but was pitched as a 5 period demonstrate.)

Who will get killed and ‘eaten’ at the start off?

One of the very first issues I did right after seeing the end of episode 9 was rewatch the show’s opening sequence to see if I could figure out who gets spiked at the really commence of the demonstrate.

Just after rewatching, and currently being familiar with all the characters, I’m certain it can be Lottie. My doing the job idea is the ladies have banded versus her and her witchcraft ways and made the decision to… try to eat her to make unusual stuff not materialize?

Look, it can be a functioning theory. 

What the hell happened to Jackie?


Jackie is form of a key character, but also not?


Very well, she’s dead suitable? Shauna attended an annual creepy lunch with Jackie’s warped mom and dad for her “birthday” so it’s a safe bet she’s lifeless.

But how? Or is Jackie the one particular orchestrating all the unusual things getting spot in the current timeline?

Jackie is the most central character in the display not taking component in the existing day storyline. That in itself is exciting. The opening episode appeared to just about frame Jackie as a central character, so we can be positive her “loss of life” will be a large offer in the clearly show.

Who is future to die?

I actually believe this clearly show would be very well served to get rid of off a important character quickly to enable the viewers know that no a person is risk-free. It demands a large Video game of Thrones instant, essentially. I actually believe that that Mentor Ben’s times are numbered and there is no way Javi is earning it out of the wilderness.

What took place to Shauna’s infant?

In the past, Shauna is expecting. In the present she has a daughter, Callie, who she frequently bickers with. Is Callie that toddler? Individuals timelines really don’t actually match up, so…

What happened to Shauna’s toddler? There’s no way they are gonna eat the baby. That’s far too much for a mainstream exhibit like Yellowjackets. Will they test and pull off a “abruptly not expecting” plot line? Probably not, given that Midnight Mass basically just did that previous yr.

Not sure how this is gonna enjoy out.

Shauna is sure to miscarry. No way she could have the little one to term in these types of a annoying ecosystem! Supplying birth would be so risky… but so would miscarrying. Both way, it truly is not heading to be a excellent time.

Who was Adam truly?

Adam was hilariously stabbed to dying by Shauna, but is that the stop of that certain thriller? It never ever sat appropriate with me that Adam pursued Shauna so intensely and fell in enjoy so promptly. Was he just a Yellowjackets lover boy that grew up with the thriller, or is there something much more likely on there?

Can Lottie see the long run for genuine?


Lottie is one of the show’s most persuasive characters so considerably.


To be truthful, I am hoping points never go whole-blown supernatural.

I imagine every thing Lottie has predicted — the river flowing with blood, for case in point — does, as Taissa argues, have logical explanations (the river is evidently running purple from concentrated minerals). Although, to be fair, Taissa also turns into a dust-consuming tree-climber at evening, so she may well not be the most trustworthy source.

What was Lottie taking her medicine for?

Lottie is using a medicine referred to as “Loxipene” which is most most likely a reference to Loxapene, a medication for schizophrenia. In episode 3, even so, Lottie operates out of her treatment. Not prolonged after, we see her behavior start to transform — she’s obtaining paranoid, gets to be quieter, and begins building very imprecise and unnerving statements. It really is truly worth noting that, as significantly as we know, Lottie hasn’t instructed any of the some others about her illness.

Who died in the cabin? Is this a haunting/cursed/ghost problem?

You will find one particular principle accomplishing the rounds that an abandoned mining operation is situated up from the crimson river. Whoever died in the cabin may well have some connection.

Why was that stag all maggoty on the inside of?

I won’t be able to picture we will ever get an reply to this, but how was this animal up and going for walks all over with its interior organs all hollowed out and covered in maggots? I Need TO KNOW!

Who is the Gentleman with no Eyes and why does Taissa retain viewing him? 

The Guy With No Eyes appears in episode 3 — very first as an apparition witnessed by both of those Taissa and her grandmother just ahead of Grandma dies, and later in the woods soon after the aircraft crash. He seems just in the length: pallid skin, dim hair and, of system, huge gaping holes where his eyes really should be.

At 1st, it appears like there could be a purely psychological rationale powering this spectre. It’s possible Taissa was traumatized from her dying grandma talking to “a man with no eyes” and her creativeness stuffed in the blanks. Having said that, coupled with Taissa’s son Sammy’s conduct — covering his windows with drawings of eyes and eyeless people today, his doll disappearing from the prime of the cupboard only to show up on the basement floor with its eyes removed — we get started to believe that The Person with No Eyes in fact life in this realm and not just in Taissa’s creativity.

Previous Eyeless Lad seems briefly in the opening credits and certainly, each individual time, I get spooked. It really is a truly unnerving character and it really is a shock to see him first look, particularly when the very first two episodes highlighted negligible supernatural aspects. He’s nevertheless to reappear, but probably he’ll make a comeback in the finale. A reappearance or even opportunity clues that he is a supernatural entity would open up us up to far more thoughts: If The Guy with No Eyes is serious, does that signify Lottie’s visions and religious connection to the forest are far more than shows of her schizophrenia?
