27 thoughts on watching the 'Yellow Jackets' season 2 premiere

I’ve been waiting for Yellowjackets for an eternity feeling – my favorite Showtime series about terribly realistic teenage girls using their soccer team skills Trying to keep each other alive in the Canadian wilderness after a plane crash – from last year, and now, the lucky day has come. I have filters in my inbox and promises of “who might have killed/maimed/dismembered who?” Words are coming, and I feel like I’m one of the girls who’s been found after a long, dark winter. (In many ways, the experience of waiting for your favorite show to come back is completely like being lost in the cold woods for months.)

Season 2 had plenty of surprises, including Lauren Ambrose (aka Claire freaking Fisher from Six Feet Under

) as the adult Van and Simon Kessel as the adult Cult leader Lottie; I obviously have a lot on my mind for the first episode of this season, which premiered Sunday, March , so let’s get started, shall we?

  1. Whoever decides to put Sharon Van Etten’s “Seventeen” in a place still trapped in a wilderness cabin The girl’s intro montage deserves every award in TV history; I literally screamed when I heard it.
  2. When I see a teenage Lottie is silent and refusing to eat or sleep when she and the rest of the girls are rescued but not so happy.
  3. Occasionally there is a shot of a girl sleeping on the floor in front of a fire and I’m like “Ah! Sleepover!”…and then I Remembered their real situation.
  4. Nat and Travis are still in the woods looking for Javi, but it’s clearly not looking good.
  5. Cut to current Lottie, serving cult leader Bette Porter to a group of purple-clad followers . Honestly, if anyone is going to make a fortune in the health industry, I think it’s Lottie who deserves it?
  6. I will never not dance furious and have no attraction for this opening music. As for icing the cookies with the words “I want my lawyer”, she’s obviously crazy, but…she’s right!
  7. Shauna is vicious teenage daughter yells at her for not telling her dad about Adam and then because She…yelled at her for telling her dad about Adam?
  8. If there’s one thing this show has taught me in countless ways, it’s that I’m completely unprepared emotionally to raise girls.
  9. Back in the woods, teenage pregnant Shauna is playing with…Jackie’s frozen corpse? I hate this.
  10. Wow, lovely Van-and-Taissa moment!
  11. Poor Crystal gets screamed all the time for singing, I pity her, but also imagine spending it in the theater Months kid.
  12. Hallucination – Jackie asks Shauna to go out with her boyfriend The friend sleeps, but the real (aka dead) Jackie’s body flips over and her ears fall off. Classic corpse friend problem.
  13. Sorry to notice this, but Jackie’s frozen body looks a lot like M3GAN.
  14. Adult Tessa brought her son a new puppy to replace that, well…not anymore Stay with us, but trouble is brewing: Her estranged wife Simone discovers “that . . . something in the basement” last season, is rightfully outraged and horrified by it, and threatens that if Tessa doesn’t step down and seek help, He will go to the media to take their children.
  15. Teens Travis and Nat briefly think they’ve found a dead body in the snow, but it’s just a fox carcass .
  16. Shauna and Jeff spy on Adam’s art studio to process the evidence and end up having… sex in it? certainly.
  17. Misty and Crystal have an adorable moment in the musical while collecting water in the woods.
  18. Hey, I’m Master Nat! After being kidnapped by Lottie’s henchmen and handcuffed to her bed, she’s not happy about it, as only Juliette Lewis can express.

Jeff swings at Dad Roach in his car while Shawna burns Adam’s stuff, including his ID indefinite. Oh, couples activity!

  • Taissa finds the basement display unnerving to Simone, and she’s clearly not a huge fan of it.
  • Well, the first assassination of the season is done: Nat impales her purple captive and takes off, calling for help.
  • Teens Tessa and Van exchange “I love you” for the first time, and it’s as romantic as any survivalist romance. I love them!
  • Oh, shit: Nat is in the woods near where she ran away, Come face to face with Lottie herself, who supposedly got a message from Travis.
  • Back in the present, Shauna and Jeff’s bad daughter find the charred remains of Adam’s license. Uh oh.
  • Teenage Shawna…eating Jackie’s cold, dead ear? What? What? ! ! ?
  • This show made me sleep with the lights on again and I wouldn’t change a thing.
