What’s Going to Occur to Shauna’s Child on ‘Yellowjackets’? 3 Theories
It’s a time-honored staple of survival exhibits: If there’s a gaggle of individuals in a high-stakes state of affairs throughout which a being pregnant could be remarkably inconvenient — if not downright lethal — somebody’s pregnant. Examples embody Claire (Emilie De Ravin) on LOST, Evelyn (Emily Blunt) in A Quiet Place, Sharon Agathon (Grace Park) on Battlestar Galactica, and so forth. On Yellowjackets, Shauna (Sophie Nelisse) winds up the bearer of the “pregnant survivor” trope.
Nonetheless, this being Yellowjackets, we’re questioning how this acquainted story may be flipped on its head… maybe by supernatural-wilderness means. We all know Teen Shauna grows as much as turn out to be Melanie Lynskey, so she gained’t die in childbirth. However what occurred to that child? Munch with us on these three potential theories.
Concept #1: Shauna Loses the Child
On the floor, this appears the most definitely route for the present to take. To say Shauna’s had a disturbing being pregnant could be sugarcoating of the very best order. Poor Shauna has survived a aircraft crash within the Canadian wilderness, has been traumatized by shedding her greatest good friend (and possibly her thoughts, just a bit, from grief), has suffered a sluggish hunger, and just lately took her first bites of human flesh courtesy of stated useless greatest good friend. The woman’s been by so much. She’s clearly not had the luxurious of getting common check-ups with a physician or taking prenatal nutritional vitamins, and it’s uncertain she’s been ready to soak up the vitamins she’d must ship a wholesome child. With all that thought-about, we’d be shocked if Shauna had the infant and it was simply tremendous. As heartbreaking as it’s, with realism thought-about, that shouldn’t occur.
One other level in help of this idea is that Grownup Shauna’s daughter, Callie (Sarah Desjardins), isn’t the precise age to be the kid with whom she was pregnant within the wilderness. It’s been 25 years for the reason that Yellowjackets have been stranded, that means that child would now be of their mid-twenties, not in highschool.
Concept #2: The Child Survives, However —
Since “wilderness child” hasn’t been explicitly said to have made it out of the wilderness, there needs to be a “however” someplace alongside the road. If Shauna’s child survives and is delivered in well being, that’ll increase a wholly new set of questions for the survivors. How can they feed it and hold it alive? Yellowjackets is darkish, however we doubt it’ll go so darkish as to indicate a child slowly dying of malnutrition. And on that topic, we additionally doubt the crew would slip so removed from actuality as to kill and eat a child — that’d be a little bit too disturbing, even for a present on which individuals are chased into spike-pits after which cooked and consumed.
It’s not solely unfathomable that Shauna might ship a wholesome child, so the chance have to be thought-about. If the women meet one other group of survivors within the wilderness, possibly somebody from that group takes Shauna’s child? Possibly there’s some type of supernatural aspect that requires the infant to remain behind in order that the remainder of the survivors can go free — a type of sacrifice?
Concept #3: One thing Really Wild Occurs
And on that topic, we current Concept 3: one thing actually, actually bizarre and fully unforeseeable goes down. It is a present that has seen bears bow earlier than people and current themselves as sacrifices for slaughter, the place rivers randomly run pink, and the place symbols seem carved on timber for a sleepwalker to search out. It isn’t afraid to go off the rails, so one thing really surprising would possibly occur with Shauna’s being pregnant. Possibly the wilderness claims the kid as a twisted blood sacrifice. Possibly Lottie (Courtney Eaton) does one thing that ties the unborn youngster to her cult or by some means by accident makes use of its life drive to profit the survivors, thus leading to a stillbirth? Who is aware of? It’s Yellowjackets. In that forest, something can occur.
