Whereas she saved her reply imprecise and spoiler-free, Lynskey gave some element on the themes of Shauna’s season 2 arc:
“There is a profound arc to her character this season, coping with grief and motherhood and her expertise within the wilderness and whether or not she thinks she’s a great mom or perhaps a good individual.”
“Motherhood” is smart, as a result of it is one thing that is troubling Shauna in each timelines. In 1996, she’s pregnant after sleeping along with her future husband Jeff (Warren Kole/Jack DePew) earlier than the crash, who occurred to be relationship her greatest buddy on the time. Worse, she’s now miles away from any physician. After contemplating an novice abortion in season 1, she’s determined to have the child and so they’re set to reach this season. Now, Lynskey highlighting “grief” as one other of Shauna’s feelings hints this would possibly not finish properly. Whereas the forged has confirmed there can be no baby-eating on “Yellowjackets,” that does not imply the child will survive both.
Within the current, Shauna has change into more and more alienated from her daughter Callie (Sarah Desjardins). They have been already hostile in season 1, however when Callie discovered of Shauna’s affair with (after which homicide of) Adam, it bought worse. Shauna questioning if she’s a “good individual” or a “good mom” is pure after this. And is she? Underneath regular circumstances, probably not, however she’s been by some distinctive circumstances.
