Spoilers for 'Yellowjackets' Episode 10 'Sic Transit Gloria Mundi'

'Yellowjackets' may have ended with Season 1, but the Showtime drama will have a chunk of questions that need answering. With each character coming in with a murky and deadly past, the new season will have to answer what exactly turned them into the dysfunctional characters they have panned out to be after surviving the wilderness. With the series now done. there have been theories in plenty, and one of them was if Taissa Turner (Jasmin Savoy Brown/Tawny Cypress) was working with Lottie (Courtney Eaton) in the present.

To answer this question, we'll have to look at their crash days. The finale saw Lottie revealed as the Antler Queen and also the one behind all the threats in the present. It is also possible that it was she and her men who killed Travis. And the other theory is if Taissa was working with Lottie all along. For starters, Simone discovered the shock of her life when she saw a voodoo doll resembling her son Sammy and the head of a beheaded dog. This makes her alibi of sleepwalking flimsy.

It is also possible that she orchestrated Natalie's (Juliette Lewis) kidnapping and only time will tell if her political ambitions have a deeper and darker purpose. To speculate as to why she signed up with Lottie, maybe much of this has to do with the fact that her girlfriend Van was actually part of the cult. Maybe, she joined for Van, although Episodes 7 and 8 showed that she didn't believe in horror or the presence of the paranormal.

Maybe there is an event that takes place in Season 2 that answers whether she joined Lottie. This may also mean she's in cahoots with Mistry (Samantha Hanratty and Christina Ricci). The alternate theory is that Lottie actually established a base at Taissa's house without her knowledge and carried out her activities. She even might be 'the lady in the tree' that Sammy was talking about.

What are your thoughts on Taissa working with Lottie?

'Yellowjackets' will return with Season 2 on Showtime.
