Only two episodes remain of Yellowjackets season 1, meaning we’ll probably be seeing some intense twists and turns within the next two weeks. Yellowjackets episode 9 premieres tonight on Showtime via the app and tomorrow during its normal linear airing. Find out everything you need to know below to ensure you don’t miss a single second of “Doomcoming.”
Given the ending of the previous episode with (spoiler!) Laura Lee attempting to fly the old plane and then exploding mid-air, we can assume that things are going to get much darker for the remaining survivors moving forward. The plane was the last real chance of hope for a quick rescue after Taissa’s aborted journey to the south, which almost resulted in Van’s death.
Based on the promo for the penultimate episode, it looks like the team members are embracing the possibility of imminent death with a night of debauchery and celebration, a grim version of a homecoming, hence the episode’s title, “Doomcoming.”
What time does Yellowjackets episode 9 premiere?
Showtime releases episodes early via the app and website. You’ll be able to watch the ninth episode as early as 12:01 a.m. ET tonight, or you can wait for the regular linear airing tomorrow night at 10:00 p.m. ET, following the Dexter: New Blood finale.
What is Yellowjackets episode 9 about?
Knowing they might be on the brink of starvation with winter fast approaching, the Yellowjackets throw one last party. In 2021, the adult survivors head to their high school reunion and Shauna confronts Adam.
Read the official synopsis from Showtime below:
"You are cordially invited to The Doomcoming. On the brink of death, the Yellowjackets opt to throw one last rager before careening into oblivion. An increasingly paranoid Shauna struggles between keeping her cool and being Shauna."
