Luca Giliberti is movie and TV lover and an awards fanatic who earned bragging rights by coming in second at predicting the 2018 Emmy nominations. He jumped up and down when Viola Davis of "How to Get Away With Murder," one of his TV obsessions, won her first Emmy; as a former Gleek, cheered when Darren Criss (“Versace”) won his; and shouted “Praise be!” when Ann Dowd (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) finally received hers. He is still waiting for Lena Headey to win her first Emmy and is still salty about Oscar voters denying Lupita Nyong'o a nomination for "Us." He is a staunch Viola Davis fan -- who, out of excitement, dropped and almost broke his phone when she achieved EGOT status -- and won’t apologize for wanting her to win every single award.

This is both brilliant and really messed up. 💀

My guess is that the cabin somehow burns down.
Anyway, regardless of how you feel about the finale, I think you can acknowledge that this is just awful:
So, I know some people really enjoyed the #Yellowjackets finale… and some people… did not (is getting death threats a showrunner right of passage? Because i can live without that one!) But I would love to take a moment to thank everyone who came on this ride with us 💛🖤💛🖤 🧵

I don’t know how I feel about the finale and Nat’s death myself — it felt so anticlimactic to me, but maybe a rewatch of the season/series will change my mind — but this behavior is just ridiculous. I should also note that Lyle is getting a lot of support from fellow writers in the comments and quote-tweets.ReplyMay 23, 2023 at 4:32 am #1205438434
I don’t know which cast member said this, but everyone’s spoken similarly about the finale, and I really have no idea what they have in store for us. It’s going to be stressful — that’s for sure.

That was phenomenal. Definitely my favorite episode of the season. The adults playing off each other and, of course, the ending have to be the highlights though. Everyone’s said the finale is by far the most shocking and the darkest episode of the season, if not series, so I am scared. My guess is that the cabin somehow burns down.ReplyMay 13, 2023 at 2:47 am #1205428041
Ah ok. I assumed it was just on that occasion. Anyway this was my favourite episode this season.
Yeah, I was not 100% sure what to make of it either at first, but I watched an interview with Simone Kessell last night, and it seems like she was hallucinating all this time — which makes total sense considering she’s had other hallucinations this season too. And agreed — great episode. It almost felt meditative in a way, which I loved.ReplyMay 13, 2023 at 2:36 am #1205428034
Wait what reveal? Were we watching the same episode?
Well, I was not expecting the therapist to be a hallucination…ReplyMay 13, 2023 at 2:32 am #1205428030
The Lottie reveal… I was not expecting that.
Next week is going to be insane.ReplyMay 12, 2023 at 1:45 am #1205427410
It’s been a while since critical reception to a show has confused me quite like it has with this one. This a perfectly good — and, at times, great — series, and Episodes 4 & 5 in particular were quite strong. Elizabeth Olsen is crushing it — she has such a great Emmy clip in the fifth ep — and, honestly, I think Lily Rabe was fantastic with what she was given as well (no surprise there though). And I’m glad to see Tom Pelphrey, who devoured the fifth ep, getting stuff to do too.
Considering the audience ratings for this are quite high and it seems like people are actually watching it, I think it’s being greatly underestimated. The subject matter is clearly in the academy’s wheelhouse and the show has so many big names attached to it, so I wouldn’t be shocked if this overperforms.ReplyMay 10, 2023 at 4:29 am #1205425673

Does everyone else also feel like there was a significant uptick in buzz this week? Obviously the hype for the episode helped, but great to see that the hiatus didn’t hurt it at all.ReplyMay 5, 2023 at 1:02 pm #1205422004
The amount of hate I’m seeing for this show on Twitter right now after the newest episode is kind of shocking.. I knew some people felt underwhelmed by the season but this is surprising to me idk.
Maybe it’s just my timeline, but I see nothing but love and praise for the episode. (Edit: It looks like some people — stans of The Wilds — decided to hate-tweet, so maybe that’s what you’re seeing.)
I just finished and it’s easily top 3 for me. Nélisse = perfect. Score = perfect. Comedy = perfectReplyApril 22, 2023 at 12:32 am #1205406758
It’s true we will have a 2 weeks hiatus?
It appears so, unfortunately. 😫
Agree with everyone here — this episode was just awesome. I also thought all the comedy in it was A+ (all those scenes between Shauna and Randy were absolute gold). I can’t believe they are gonna make us wait two weeks for *that* episode (cannot wait to see what Liz Garbus has in stone for us). I also agree that the score is underrated — it’s bloody brilliant.ReplyApril 18, 2023 at 12:00 am #1205394288
Re: Yellowjackets — I am personally loving this season (Ep. 2 is easily a series highlight IMO), but I think once the adults finally reunite — I am pretty sure Misty and Nat will cross paths in this week’s episode — things will begin to pick up immensely. The cast has also said that Ep. 6 and everything after that is completely wild, so I expect a pretty big climax. I think all the table-setting will ultimately be worth it.April 4, 2023 at 2:08 am #1205376916
The second episode was a showcase for the directing of the series, one of the best as a whole imo.
The interesting part is that we have three director nominees from the last three years helming episodes this season: Ben Semanoff (who did Ep. 2), Liz Garbus and Karyn Kusama. Curious to see whether all three are submitted (I assume they will be, though, especially since 2 is a big ep and both Garbus’ and Kusama’s episodes have also been hyped up by the cast).
I loved every second of the very unhinged second episode.ReplyMarch 19, 2023 at 3:16 am #1205356890
It’s also up to 82 on Metacritic now.Not now
