Yellowjackets: Did Shauna Really Love Jeff? Here’s Melanie Lynskey’s Take

[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for Yellowjackets Season 1.]

Yellowjackets Season 1 was quite the rollercoaster when it came to tracking Warren Kole’s Jeff. After spending a good chunk of the show judging him for cheating on Jackie (Ella Purnell) when they were young and then also seemingly cheating on Shauna (Melanie Lynskey) as an adult, it was revealed that Jeff was actually one of Shauna’s biggest supporters. Yes, he did try to blackmail the other surviving Yellowjackets, but it was all done out of his determination to provide for his family. On top of that, much to Shauna’s surprise, Jeff had read her wilderness diaries long ago and despite whatever horrors she detailed in them, he still loves her.

And then there’s Shauna. Yes, Shauna (Sophie Nélisse) and Jackie were best friends growing up, but it becomes quite clear that Shauna’s been harboring some serious animosity for her perfect, queen bee BFF. That then begs the question, was the romance between young Shauna and Jeff initiated by how she felt about Jackie, or did Shauna and Jeff really share feelings for one another early on?

That’s exactly what I discussed with Melanie Lynskey on a recent episode of Collider Ladies Night. Find out what she said in this After Hours clip!
