The plot thickens in ‘Yellowjackets‘ at the halfway point of its first season. ‘Blood Hive,’ the fifth episode, is titled. Coach Scott’s apparent attraction to Misty (Christina Ricci as an adult and Sammi Hanratty as a teen) takes a strange and dangerous turn in 1996. Lottie’s (Courtney Eaton) schizophrenia worsens as her medication runs out. Except for Shauna (Melanie Lynskey as an adult and Sophie Nélisse as a teenager), all of the girls have their periods at the same time. Jackie (Ella Purnell) continues to struggle in her situation. Her new plan to raise the spirits of her team by holding a séance backfires.
In 2021, Taissa (Tawny Cypress as an adult and Jasmin Savoy Brown as a teenager) makes crucial campaign decisions, and Nat (Juliette Lewis as an adult and Sophie Thatcher as a teenager) and Misty discover that there was someone else in the barn where Travis died beside them. Here’s everything you need to know about the fifth episode of ‘Yellowjackets.’
The Recap of Yellowjackets Episode 5 WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.
Shauna’s guilt over betraying Jackie returns when she discovers that all of the girls’ periods have synced except hers in 1996. She tries to hide the truth by displaying a deer-blood-soaked cloth, but Taissa notices. Jackie is having trouble keeping up with the rest of the girls. Shauna confronts her friend and tells her the truth, giving her the confidence she had before the plane crash.
When the girls begin to wonder if the cabin is haunted, Jackie persuades the others to hold a séance. Taissa and Laura, on the other hand, have decided not to attend. Laura Lee, a devout Christian, chooses to stay downstairs for religious reasons, while the former does so because she finds the whole thing childish.
Coach Scott is poisoned by Misty in the meantime. While it isn’t enough to kill him, it does make him realize he is in danger. He tries to rein her in by telling her that he understands how she feels but can’t do anything about it because she is a minor and he is a teacher. Travis and Misty exchange a kiss, and Taissa and Van’s secret relationship is revealed.
The séance gives the girls some levity at first, but then strange things start to happen, and Lottie’s behavior becomes erratic. Laura Lee takes it as a sign when Coach Scott pukes, so she goes up to the attic and throws the Bible at Lottie, jolting her out of her trance.
Callie discovers that her mother has been unfaithful in 2021. When she tries to blackmail Shauna, the latter makes it clear that doing so will result in mutually assured destruction. Misty and Nat discover candles placed beneath Travis in the barn to form the shape of the mysterious symbol. Taissa believes her son Sammy scribbled the word “Spill” in blood-red on her door. When she questions him about it, he claims that the woman who he claims is watching him wrote it. Taissa considers quitting politics briefly before blaming her opponent for the vandalism in front of the press.
Is Shauna expecting a child? What is the Father’s Name?
Yes, Shauna is expecting a child, and Greg is most likely to be the father. Before she left for Seattle, they had spent some time together. No one notices when she misses her period, except Taissa, who informs her of something she may already know: if they stay in the Ontario wilderness long enough, others will find out. For Shauna, this means Jackie, who will undoubtedly find out who the father is.
This child is most likely not Callie; the dates do not match. So, whatever happened to this child in 2021, will not be a part of Shauna’s life. Interestingly, Lottie says “it” is inside Shauna during the trance. This suggests that whatever happened to the child has something to do with Lottie’s schizophrenic delusions.
Who Is Blackmailing Taissa and Nat in Yellowjackets Episode 5?
Nat contacts Taissa after learning that someone else was present at the location where Travis allegedly committed suicide. Nat and Misty appear to be as surprised as the latter. They both receive a message on their phones demanding $50,000 in cash and instructing them not to contact any of their friends as they discuss the recent events. Taissa and Nat, on the other hand, decide to call Shauna right away. Misty has hidden a camera in Nat’s motel room and has been watching and listening to their entire conversation, which neither of them is aware of.
The person who demands the ransom is almost certainly the same person who sent the postcard. Jackie died during those 19 months, so she isn’t one of the survivors who has gone off the grid, and she isn’t the one sending the postcards, according to this episode. Shauna gives Jackie her heart-shaped pendant necklace from 1996 in episode 6 and tells her daughter about the girl who was her best friend in 2021. It’s still possible that one of the survivors, possibly one of the protagonists, sent these postcards.
Misty has a reputation for being a suspect. And it’s becoming clear that she enjoys inciting violence and chaos and then watching it unfold with delight. We shouldn’t rule out the possibility that she sent the postcards and messages solely for her amusement, then claimed to have received one herself to divert attention.
