Will We Get Answers in the Yellowjackets Finale? The Cast Says…

TV Shows That Shaped 2021: “Bridgerton,” “Squid Games” & More!

Ah, where do we even begin?! 

From cannibalism to sacrifices, séances to senate races—oh, and that jaw-dropping murder last weekYellowjackets has kept us all on our toes…and made our stomachs churn. Now as the finale for the star-studded Showtime series approaches on Sunday, Jan. 16, we’re racing to Reddit to discuss fan theories for what answers (if any!) we’ll get ahead of season two. 

“There’s like a million theories right now and it’s so fun to read everyone’s ideas,” Samantha Hanratty, who plays Misty, the eerie “doctor” of the group, exclusively told E! News. “I don’t even have all the answers so I’m like, ‘Oh shoot, that makes sense!’ Like, there are things that people are saying that I’m like, ‘That could be….'” 

And Hanratty isn’t the only star who has been entertained by the rumors swirling of what exactly the Yellowjackets team has to hide. 

“I know actors shouldn’t do this but I’ve been going all over Reddit and I’ve read everything,” Sophie Thatcher, who portrays teen Natalie, the “huntress” of the survivors, said. “It’s so hard not to with this show, there are so many interesting theories.”

Some of those theories include who, exactly, is being hunted in that creepy flash-forward in the premiere? And do these young girls endure the winter of 1996 by…eating each other?! 

While we already know both Hanratty and Thatcher’s characters survive—the adult versions of their characters are played by Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis, respectively—the same can’t be said for all of their teammates.

Showtime

Melanie Lynskey, who plays adult Shauna, teased that the finale will lean in to the trauma the four leads still suffer from 25 years later. 

“I think Shauna is a person who, in moments of stress, gets quite subdued,” Lynskey explained. “She’s gone through so much and she’s learned to listen that having a lot of emotion when things aren’t going well doesn’t serve you. So she kind of shuts down in those moments.”

So will we see Shauna finally break down after she murdered her lover, Adam (Peter Gadiot)?

Showtime

“Finding out that Jeff was the blackmailer and that she had killed somebody for no reason, it’s just too much to process in the moment,” Lynskey continued. “And also the fact that Jeff knows her story and loves her anyway is also a bit too much to process. She’s been underestimating Jeff for years and I just think too much information is coming at her at once.” 

She added, “There is a moment in the finale where she’s alone in the shower and she lets herself feel everything for the first time, and I really wanted to be careful that I keep getting emotional in all those scenes and I’m like, ‘No, hold it in, hold it in.’ She’s a person who would try to just get through all the business: How am I going to do this? Who’s going to help me?” 

But Lynskey can confirm that the finale will leave audiences with one heck of a cliffhanger

“I think that there is one huge surprise. I think there’s one huge cliffhanger, which is very exciting, something that is teased for the modern day storyline,” Lynskey hinted. “And I think a lot of things are tied up. There is one thing in it that makes me so sad. But I think it’s going to be satisfying.” 

Showtime

Hanratty agreed, saying, “We get some answers and then there’s these other parts of the show where it opens up this whole other mess, so when one story closes, we get stumped with something totally different. It opens up a whole other can of worms.” 

She warned: “I will say bring a box of tissues for the finale and get ready to gasp quite a few times. I know I did when I read the script. It’s going to get messy.”  

Yellowjackets season finale airs Sunday, Jan. 16 at 10 p.m. on Showtime.

Hear Marianne Faithfull’s Forceful ‘Vagabond Ways’ Demo for ‘Incarceration of a Flower Child’

Published

Marianne Faithfull will give her 1999 album, Vagabond Ways, the deluxe treatment with a reissue due out March 4. She’s teasing the release with the demo recording for the album’s “Incarceration of a Flower Child,” a song Roger Waters wrote in 1968 but never recorded with Pink Floyd.

On the demo, Faithfull sings along to a backdrop of acoustic guitars and one buzzy electric as she describes a scene of drinking cheap wine and smoking dope on Indian tapestry cushions. “Don’t get up to answer the door, just stay with me here on the floor,” she belts. “It’s going to get cold in the Seventies.” The studio version that appeared on Vagabond Ways sounds more polished thanks to electronics played by co-producer Mark Howard and synth bass by Waters.

The reissue will feature several other previously unreleased demos, an uncirculated studio recording, and new liner notes. In addition to digital and CD reissues, the record will be available on vinyl for the first time.

The bonus material includes “Blood in My Eyes,” a Bob Dylan cover that previously featured on the Japanese edition of the original album, as well as “Drifting,” a song Faithfull wrote and recorded with co-producer Daniel Lanois but never released. It also includes demos of “Vagabond Ways,” “Electra,” and her cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Tower of Song,” and Waters’ “Incarceration.”

She reflected on her enduring friendship with Waters in a 2014 Rolling Stone feature when she recorded another one of his songs, “Sparrows Will Sing,” for her Give My Love to London album. “He’s one of my dearest friends, and I love him and he’s everything a real gentleman rock star should be,” she said. “He’s not a misogynist. He is not only in it for the money. He is a great man.”

‘I Was in Prison. Now He Is’: Ronnie Spector Gets Raw on Phil Spector in Unearthed Audio

Ronnie Spector, who died last week at the age of 78, speaks candidly about her abusive ex-husband, Phil Spector, and more in never-before-heard audio on the new episode of Rolling Stone Music Now. Phil Spector, who died in 2021, was in prison for murder when Kory Grow interviewed Ronnie in 2016, and she told Grow she saw it as karmic justice for the years when her ex essentially locked her away in their mansion.

To hear the entire episode, press play above, or listen on Apple Podcasts or Spotify

“I couldn’t go out for seven years,” Spector said. “I didn’t go anywhere… What goes around, comes around. I was in prison. Now he is. So that’s how I look at it.” In the interview clips, Spector also gives a vivid account of the making of the Ronettes’ epochal hit “Be My Baby” and more.

The episode also includes an in-depth discussion between Andy Greene, Angie Martoccio, Rob Sheffield, and host Brian Hiatt about Spector’s life, music, influence (from Jersey Shore rock to punk to riot grrrrl to, um, Eddie Money), and legacy — as well as her soon-to-be-reissued autobiography.

“She talks in the book about how she was possessed when she was young with the desire to be seen, to be heard, to be accepted,” Sheffield says. “She talks about how she was a cheerleader at her high school. And she was like, that wasn’t enough for me, to be the most popular girl in school. I needed to be in the most popular girl in the world. And you can hear that lust for power in ‘Be My Baby.’ This is the voice of an ordinary girl from the streets of Spanish Harlem who is absolutely intent on making the whole world hear her and go, what the hell was that? And that’s exactly what she did.”

Jamie Lynn Spears Says She Tried To Help Britney Get Out of Conservatorship

JAMIE LYNN SPEARS
I Tried To Free Britney …
But It Blew Up In My Face!!!

Call Her Daddy/Spotify

Jamie Lynn Spears says she tried to help Britney free herself from her conservatorship … but the efforts went nowhere and pissed a lot of people off.

The former Nickelodeon star says Britney made it seem like she wanted out of the conservatorship during some late-night sister talks on a trip to Hawaii, and Jamie Lynn says she tried to get involved.

As Jamie Lynn explains on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast, she took Britney’s comments to heart and talked to her sister’s lawyer … but it blew up in her face big time.

What’s more, Jamie Lynn says she and her husband had some judges look into Britney’s conservatorship and told her all she needed to do was move out of California for 6 months and the conservatorship would end.

JL says she even offered to have Britney live with her in Louisiana in an effort to dissolve the conservatorship … but she still doesn’t know why Britney never followed through with that option.

Jamie Lynn doesn’t give an exact time frame for when any of this was happening … but says she was always going to support whatever Britney wanted to do.

Britney’s been reacting to a lot of Jamie Lynn’s interviews and excerpts from her new book, so it will be interesting if she has a response here.
