Great interview with Lynskey here in Rolling Stone.

It breaks my heart that Lynskey still has people questioning the plausibility of her sex appeal over her body type. I think she’s gorgeous.

Finale was a bit anticlimactic

I think she's attractive as she has aged, not so much when she was younger. I guess people are used to watching women where you can see their ribs sticking out when topless or something.

Well they set up Season 2 with a bunch of stuff to untangle.

Decent episode.

Im guessing this will have a bigger following in anticipation of Season 2, once teens and others have a chance to binge it over the next year.

Im not even sure of some things that went on this finale.

Low key finale but I dug it.

Really liked the cross-cutting between the reunion and the '96 scenes. Also loved that they're still not making it too supernatural, the events of the finale (keeping it spoiler-free) are more than enough to send the girls over the edge.

I really need to check if I get Showtime with my xfinity package (I think I do, I pay enough for my xfinity services, lol) because I kind-of let this go and did not bother to record the episodes but I wanted to watch. I passed on reading the recaps at the AV Club so I would be going in spoiler free. I think it is an 8 episode season (or is it 12?), so perhaps I can catch up slowly but surely over the next two to three months. I am a Melanie Lynskey fan and would probably enjoy this show. I can probably watch on demand or I bet that Showtime will re-run the first season episodes soon enough now that the finale has aired.

Its 10 episodes. It’s addictive. You should be able to fly through it.

Im sure they’re on demand and Showtime will probably have marathons from time to time.

This is their BiG show now.

Like say, yesterday. But yeah, I hope they'll run it again, and not during NFL playoffs. I'd at least like to see the pilot again, now that I know what happens to at least some of the girls. Sort of like how Squid Game's first ep looks a lot different once you know how it ends.

Here are some of my thoughts:
Spoiler:

The shrine dog head thing is not Taissa but her son

It was obvious from the beginning that there would be survivors that are not known

Lottie cult thing come out of left field.

Seems like the one instance of cannibalism we saw is likely not the only one

Re: Yellowjackets (Showtime) - S: Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey

Finale was just OK I thought. So, the art guy was just an art guy and she killed him for no reason and just chopped him up and that was that? Or did I miss something? No one seemed the least bit bothered.
I didn't need all questions answered, but I was hoping for a little bit more I guess. Oh well, still a very good show.

Well they did show a missing persons thing on the news. And the daughter saw it. And the daughter knows it was Shauna's boyfriend. So the search for him / the daughter trying to figure out what happened could be a good story thread for season 2. We'll just have to wait and see if it goes anywhere or not.

I hope they get a big or known name as the new adult that was revealed, don’t wanna spoil it for anyone who has not watched.

But some articles I have read said the new teen that we know is alive as an adult has not been cast yet.

You know, the worst part is that on first watching I didn't even hear that survivor's name mentioned!

In an interview in Variety, one of the showrunners said it's NOT a careless error that Jackie's journal contains references to many post-1996 movies.

Spoiler:
During the last scene when Nat's friend from the bank called and left the message on her phone (as Nat was being kidnapped), she said it was someone named Lottie who had cleaned out Travis' bank account.

Makes sense. I also just read somewhere that the storyline was meant to give the viewer insight into Shauna's general paranoia, and he may well have just been some guy who liked her that she killed. Also, Shauna's husband, who apparently wasn't having an affair, was sure extremely quick to forgive her for her affair. "Here is a special dress--Off to the reunion party we go...!"

Yeah, that was what I meant....I have no idea why, but when I watched it Sunday night I didn't hear that part, I only picked it up when I re-watched the ep last night.

But, did she actually say that's who cleaned out the bank account? I thought she said she knew who did it, but didn't actually say who. Then she said she was being followed, and asked "who the fuck is
Spoiler:
Lottie?"


Although as I've already established, my listening comprehension on that scene was faulty for some reason.

I took it to mean both the bank account and was being followed by.

BTW : This show was always making great song choices, but they hit their pinnacle when they played
Spoiler:
Come Out And Play by The Offspring


As the women stroll into the reunion together. That was an all-time needle drop. I let out a loud "Yeah!" as I watched it.
