We’re a good way in Yellow jackets Season 2 now, and that can only mean one thing: time to get back to the trailer and scour it again for any clues we may have missed.
The standout shot on rewatch? This brief glimpse of the team carrying a body tied to a wooden pole across the snowy wilderness.
You can see the recording if you jump to 2:19 in the video below. It’s only a few seconds long, but it’s one of the few key moments in the trailer that we haven’t seen on the show yet.
So who is the (presumed dead) person wearing them? Let’s see if we can pull this off…
What is the person being carried wearing?
Obviously we don’t see any facial features of the unfortunate soul, or too many others that we can use to identify them. But we have some Things to do. Namely their gloves, the arms of the coat/jacket they are wearing and their shoes. The soles of the shoes don’t really tell us much, other than that the person can’t be Coach Ben (Steven Krueger) since both legs are intact. However, the combination of gloves and coat could tell us more. Let’s take a close-up:

OK, so brown gloves and what appears to be a dark gray jacket. Written down.
The next question, of course, is what characters could possibly be bound to this stake based on who we know is in the wild but doesn’t show up in the present. By our previous calculations, this reduces the possibilities to Mari (Alexa Barajas), Akilah (Nia Sondaya), Gen (Mya Lowe), Melissa (Jenna Burgess), Crystal (Nuha Jes Izman), or the newly returned Javi (Luciano Leroux). ).
Yellowjackets Season 2: Who Might Die in the Wild?
Our first thought was that it could be Crystal and that the girls could recover her body after her unfortunate “accident” with Misty (Samantha Hanratty). But a replay of Crystal’s tragic death scene rules that theory out because, as always, she’s wearing purple gloves and a light-colored coat.
nope Doesn’t fit.

If we look at most characters’ gauntlet and cloak combinations, we can probably rule out quite a few of them.
No brown gloves and dark jacket there.

So who is the person being carried?
Our theory and the only person who seems to fit at this point? Yes how.
After appearing dead in the first part of Season 2, Travis’ brother (Kelvin Alves) is now back Yellow jackets after his mysterious absence. And in the moments when he sits with his big brother in episode 5, yes looks as if his gloves and jacket could match those of the character being transported in the trailer.
It’s worth noting that Travis is also absent from the shot of the corpse being carried. Maybe the moment was too painful for him to be a part of? Could Javi have experienced an accident in the wilderness that led to his death? Or maybe something more sinister?
It’s too early to say why, but we think at least we know who now.
Yellow jackets Season 2 will stream on Showtime, with new episodes streaming weekly on Fridays(opens in a new tab). Episodes also air every Sunday at 9:00 p.m. ET on Showtime.
