Enable me to preemptively come to Natalie’s protection. Travis’ hope apart, all logic factors to the saddest consequence: Javi might be useless. The Ontario wilderness has been merciless to the Yellowjackets and regardless of being sheltered in a cabin, they’re perpetually chilly. Despite the fact that they’ve pooled their assets and preserved their meals, they’re nonetheless strolling the razor’s fringe of hunger. So it is arduous to think about that Javi has survived whereas wandering the Ontario wilderness for 2 months, all on his personal. By now, he is in all probability starved, been mauled by wolves (like Van), or frozen to demise (like Jackie). However Travis cannot bear to think about these choices.
It is no coincidence that each one of that is mirrored by Shauna refusing to let go of Jackie. Shauna is so overwhelmed by the lack of her greatest pal that she spends all her free time chatting along with her frozen corpse … amongst different issues. Eargate apart, Shauna hasn’t been in a position to transfer on from the loss, and it is debilitating. Natalie seems to be at Travis the identical approach: they can not hunt, and he cannot successfully transfer on if he by no means accepts the lack of his brother.
With no affirmation that his brother is useless, Travis is trapped in a purgatory state: he refuses to cease wanting, even when it means being consumed by an infinite cycle of despair. Wanting to assist him, Nat decides to kill no matter glimmer of hope he has left. Within the second episode, she steals a bit of Javi’s garments, shreds it, wipes it in her blood, then vegetation it for Travis to search out. For the second, her plan is successful. Travis breaks down however ultimately, he throws the bloodied garments into the pyre with Jackie’s physique, accepting his brother’s “demise.”
