Drew Comins is fully aware that fans are desperate for answers but is correct in knowing where the true intrigue and mysteries of the show exist. He said that the big question that people keep asking is “What really happened out there?” Which makes sense considering there’s a non-zero chance that the Yellowjackets girls’ soccer team had to resort to cannibalism to say alive. But as Comins points out, there are deeper questions at play, like how did this change them? “Going back to the fundamental mystery of the show isn’t ‘Who fell in that pit?'” said Comins. “It’s ‘who did it make them into?'”
He continued by mentioning how trauma shapes people differently and pain metabolizes in different ways and said that season 2 is going to explore how their experiences in the wilderness shaped them as human beings on an emotional level both as individuals and as a group. “They were sort of [thrown] into the fire together, so I hope that [we lean into that] question of ‘Are the women possessed by the darkness or do the women possess darkness?'”
For those unaware, trauma is not an event in itself, but rather the way we emotionally process the event. It’s why some people were immobilized in front of their televisions after 9/11, while others managed to go to work the next day as if nothing had happened. The “Yellowjackets” gals are not a monolith, and they’ve each dealt with the crash and 19 months of survival as teenagers differently.
Jacqueline Sacerio capped the teaser by saying, “And I think we can say, aesthetically, that winter is coming.” Good. All hail the Antler Queen.
