The frenzied thriller ‘Yellowjackets‘ second season promises to be just as trippy, scary, and titillating as the first, alternating between the gruesome survival story of a girls’ high school soccer team crash-landed in the woods 25 years ago and the present-day exploits of the trauma survivors. The adult Van, played by Lauren Ambrose of Servant, and the adult Lottie, played by Simone Kessell, who is the spiritual head of a cult complex and is frightened that the evil they gave in to as children have come back to haunt them is both played by adults. Elijah Wood plays a private investigator who teams up with Christina Ricci’s crazy character, Misty, for some lightheartedness.

Yellowjackets Season 2 Episode 1 “Friends, Romans, Countrymen” Recap
Season 2 begins two months into the harsh winter in the wilderness when supplies are running low and the women have resorted to blood sacrifice. Friends, Romans, and Countrymen is the premiere episode of Season 2. In the 1996 timeline, winter has set in and there is very little game to be found outside, but Natalie and Travis are determined to continue their hunt. Before they leave the cabin, Lottie, in full shaman mode, pricks her finger, draws blood, and mixes it with sage in a cup for them to drink. Jackie, the team captain, is frozen to death after being locked out of the house during a fight.
In the second season of Yellowjackets, viewers were treated to both returning elements and new developments. One of the most acclaimed new characters, Lottie Matthews, had her backstory fleshed out in this episode, while viewers got an insight into what happened to the girls after they were saved.
Yellowjackets’ success lies in its ability to tease out intriguing plotlines without fully committing. Adam’s murder remained a major focus of the season two premiere, driving an unexpected wedge between Shauna and Jeff. Other significant events like Natalie’s kidnapping, and the new social order established after Jackie’s passing were also notable features of this episode.
Nat and Travis searched for food while Travis’ brother Javi took charge of the camp. Shauna, however, was struggling with Jackie’s death and spent much time alone with Jackie’s frozen corpse in the shed. In an unexpected twist of events, Shauna puts Jackie’s ear in her mouth in the final shot of the episode, hinting at possible cannibalism in the future.
At present, events remain unclear. Taissa’s family drama continues, Misty remains unchanged, and Shauna struggles to reignite her marriage romance. Despite these obstacles, Yellowjackets’ second season premiere did an outstanding job of setting up the story and introducing key characters – promising to keep viewers hooked in the coming weeks.
Fans eager to watch Yellowjackets season 2 can now do so on Showtime via streaming.
