Who is the queen of horns in Yellow Jackets?

The opening scene of Netflix’s Yellow Vests kicks off with one of the most memorable TV scenes in recent memory. A dark-haired girl in a nightgown runs through the frozen forest, looking scared for her life—and for good reason. As she runs, a hole opens under her feet and she falls into it. The following shots show her limbs being nailed to the ground with sticks and then being hung up by her feet and skinned while a bunch of people dressed in animal skins look on. Eventually, after the girl’s remains are placed in front of the horned figure, the group devours her.

The ghost of this scene haunts all of Yellow Vests, which tells the story of a women’s soccer team that crash-lands in the woods and is forced to survive there for 19 months. Interspersing this story with scenes set 25 years later, when the surviving girls struggle with the adults, the series is mostly about trauma and its lingering aftermath. By the second season, the wilderness began to wreak havoc in the minds of the team, making their descent into ritualistic murder more and more understandable.

Since the beginning of the show, one of the most pressing questions from viewers has been the identity of the horned leader from the opening scene, whom fans have nicknamed the Queen of Horns. While the figure’s identity seemed obvious at first, the Queen of Horns might be a little more complicated than she – or she – seemed at first glance. Ahead, here’s what we know.

Lottie is the queen of horns?

Lottie (played by Courtney Eaton as a teenager and Simone Kessell as an adult), who suffers from mental illness and begins to see the forest as soon as her medication runs out, has always been a top contender for the Queen of the Horns. In one of the episodes of the first season, she shown in front of some horns hanging on the wall that frame her face as if she wears them as a headdress. She also sees the deer in a vision she has when Laura Lee (Jane Widdop) christens her and gives Van (Liv Hewson as a teenager and Lauren Ambrose as an adult) a deer bone as a talisman to protect her.

Then, at an ill-fated, psychedelic twisted party in the first season of The Coming Doom, Lottie dons antlers and a shawl that resembles that of the Queen of Horns. By the second season, young Lottie had already begun leading the stuck Yellowjackets and company in morning rituals and superstitious rites. She also seems to have some sort of ability to communicate with what she believes to be the spirit of the forest. For all these reasons, it is easy to assume that she is the driving force behind the violent actions that the team commits.

However, in the second season, we find that Lottie becomes the leader of the cult (played by Simone Kessel) as an adult, and oddly enough, the mysterious symbol that the team sees everywhere in the forest seems to play a crucial role in her organization. The grown-up Lottie also often referred to an independent force that existed in the wilderness while the girls were in a predicament, and this – combined with some of Kessel’s comments – casts doubt on the identity of the Queen of Horns.

Is the Queen of Horns a spirit or a force?

As it turns out, Kessel had the same questions we all have about the identity of the queen of horns. In an April interview Hollywood Reportersshe provided some information that makes things even less clear.

“I remember asking, ‘What is the Queen of Horns? Is it a symbol, metaphor, or reality? And I remember [the creators] going [no answer], – she said. “It could be anything we count,” she continued. But actually now we’ve turned that into the fact that the Queen of Horns is a part of all of us, and she really was something that helped these women survive in the wilderness. This was my interpretation of it. I had so many questions, but I tried to act cool.”

There is quite a bit of evidence to support this theory. Throughout the second season, adult Lottie and Natalie (Juliette Lewis) make frequent references to a force or entity they call “this one” that they believe has returned home with them from the wilderness. This indicates that the Queen of Horns in the very first scene of the show may be a hallucination, or possibly a real being, shown to the team in the form of a shrouded being.

From all this, it’s safe to say that the Queen of Horns is not only human. It is also clearly some kind of force, energy or spirit. It raises another However, the central question is: is the Queen of Horns a real being that exists independently of the minds of the crew, or is it something that exists in the minds of plane crash survivors driven by hunger and fear? This question will probably never have a definitive answer, but it’s worth thinking about nonetheless.

Are there other contenders for the Queen of the Horns?

As for the figure with the horns in the first scene, if it’s not a hallucination, a real spirit, or Lottie, it’s possible that Yellow Vests could add an unexpected twist. Shauna (Sophie Nelisse as a teenager and Melanie Lynskey as an adult), who always took comfort in blood and violence, became increasingly erratic, and it’s possible that she could become possessed with enough rage to become the Queen of Horns. However, she has serious problems with Lottie’s ceremonial activities in Season 2, so it’s probably not her. The same goes for Taissa (Jasmine Savoy Brown as a teenager and Tony Cypress as an adult), who admittedly does experience many hours of fugue states – though the Queen of the Horns ritual does seem to require careful planning, meaning that Taissa , probably couldn’t do it while sleepwalking, although she seems to be becoming more and more convinced that Lottie has some sort of special power.

We also know that Misty (Samantha Hanratty as a teenager and Christina Ricci as an adult) is volatile enough and craves attention to perform something like lead blood rites, but we know she’s definitely not the Queen of Horns; in fact, she is the only person in the original scene who removes her mask, revealing that she is the face behind that creepy bear costume.

Nat (Sophie Thatcher as a teenager and Juliette Lewis as an adult) also continued to resist Lottie’s spirituality in her youth, although her hunting partner Travis (Kevin Alves as a teenager and Andrés Soto as an adult) showed signs of infatuation with Lottie. , so it’s possible that Lottie could have manipulated him or another teammate into leading the sacrifice. However, given Lottie’s cult leader tendencies in adulthood and her apparent connection to the supernatural realms, Lottie still seems like the most likely face under the Queen of the Horns’ shroud – although she could of course be obsessed with something much more.

Knowing Yellow Vests, anything could happen, and given the slow pace of the show’s first and second seasons, we may have to wait a while to find out for sure. But whoever the Queen of Horns is, one thing is clear: what happened in that forest will not cease to torment those who survived.

The seventh episode of the second season of Yellow Vests premieres on Showtime on May 14.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 15 Episode 2

Published

on

The rest of Ross’ 40th birthday party opens with this episode instead of the long-awaited Season 15 tagline, which is unfortunate because the drama’s climax doesn’t quite live up to what the teaser promised. Martell’s confusion and Kourtney’s irrelevance were predictable and cringed no matter how much Candy activated. And honestly, Kandy activates not so much the “beef” content that Courtney has, but how Courtney approaches the situation. After the infamous “Pillow Talk” fight, we all know what happens when fingers start waving in Kandi’s face and the whole group agrees that Kourtney can be a little “bouncy”.

The relationship between Kourtney and Kandi dies down as quickly as it has escalated as Kenya, Martell and Sheri remain in the spotlight. Sheri engages Martell in a conversation about possible other women and a message in Kenya’s mailbox, and he quickly defends himself. The man is slippery to say the least, with the agility of someone who is well versed in having the camera document sensitive situations. He jokes about the supposed woman he sees in Atlanta, saying that he’s with Sheri every time he’s in town, so the other woman must be getting the short end of the stick (I’m not sure how this joke will help his case, but ok then).

It’s easy to imagine Martell going back and forth on his own TV show, spouting excuses and deviating from his behavior. I went back to petitioning to have Martell removed from his show, and Comments touch; I know the comments on the internet can be dramatic, but allegations that he is stalking, stalking and abusing his ex-wife are enough to make Ralph look like a saint. Martell’s quickness makes him a worthy adversary for Kenya, although I never think husbands/boyfriends should raise their voices or cast a petty shadow on their partner’s friends. Upon seeing the message, Martell asks Kenya to open all of her private messages, noting that she probably replied to all of them. This roundabout way of calling Kenya a whore irritates her and now Kenya is activated.

Martell continues to deny the message (which literally everyone just saw) until he finds a loophole: he sent the DM two years ago, far longer than the “at least six months ago” originally proposed by Kenya. Like any great venomous person, he holds on to this inconsistency to keep discrediting Kenya and then says, “I don’t care if I tried to fuck two years ago. Why are you talking about this? Kenya gets up from her seat, challenging him to offhand comments. Sheri stands between her man and her friend as Kenya yells, “You did it to your ex-wife and you are going to do it to Sheri. Once a swindler, always a swindler, a fucking piece of shit.” She warns her friend that the way Martell talks to her will end up talking to Sheri. But Sheri supports her man and leaves the party with him on his arm. In the car, he doubles down on his comment, saying that if they are queens, then he is a king and should be treated accordingly. Okay, Martell.

Later, Kenya comes to the She By Shereé distribution center to discuss everything. Dealing with Kenya in situations like this is generally unclear; throughout her tenure on the show, she had a habit of getting into violent fights, often said by her opponent that she provoked them. As Kim Fields once said, Kenya enjoys shaking a hornet’s nest and then pretending to be surprised when she gets stung. I’m not saying this because I felt she was wrong with Martell, but because she’s easy to portray as the villain in any confrontation, which is what Sheri does. However, she can’t give a good reason why Martell spoke to Kenya like that and tries to cover the situation up by saying that she already knew about the DM. Kenya responds to every DM request by sticking to her story that Martell is completely innocent, while Kenya remains adamant that she defended herself against an aggressive man. Sheri then resorts to a bizarre attempt to present Kenya’s actions as racially motivated. In her confession, she says: “What is your problem with calling black men aggressive? Are they public enemy number one because you don’t have one?”

Before meeting at the distribution center, Sheri and Sanya somehow turn the confrontation into something racial, stating the importance of “not labeling” black men, stating that after Ross stood up for his wife last season, Kenya also called him aggressive. It is true that black men and black people in general are disproportionately and falsely labeled as aggressive and threatening, but comparing this very real issue to what happened between Martell and Kenya is a false equivalence. As a longtime fan of the show, I was leaning towards the side of the party that felt provoked by Kenya (you can’t look people in the face, babble and expect them to do nothing), but in this scenario I feel that while Kenya might , was dirty, raising the DM, Martell’s answer was unjustified. It’s like the Miami fiasco in Season 8 with Tammy’s nephew, whose feathers were definitely ruffled by Kenya, but the reaction got out of hand. The Master wasn’t obscene or outright flirtatious, so why was Martell so pissed off instead of saying he was friendly? Going from zero to whore infamy was too much, and his reputation had already outstripped him.

In the end, after being taught a “bros not hoes” lesson by Sheri, Kenya agrees to disagree with the situation. However, there is so much irony in Sheri’s chosen form of evasion because, in the same episode, she can’t stand Kourtney’s insinuation that Kandy is a ghetto. My guess is that her concerns about stereotyping in the black community don’t extend to her co-stars on the set. Courtney, whose father’s sister is Ralph’s great aunt, proves how annoying the family tree is when she takes another random hit on Kandy. We learn that she had much more to say about the mogul during her meeting with Sheri and Sanya than was originally conveyed to Kandi. This tea is much stronger than the “I heard you said we’re not friends” nonsense – Kourtney tells Sheri and Sana that after Kandy settled into a restaurant frequented by girls, a new “ghetto” crowd began to fill the hangout. We are now in 2023 and we know better than to call each other ghettoespecially in front of a white audience, but here we are.

Yes, technically Courtney was referring to the crowd that followed Kandy as the ghetto, not Kandy itself, but the implication is there. To make matters worse, thanks to a producer breaking the fourth wall, Kandy is forced to talk about shooting it happened in her restaurant. In her confession, she explains that the restaurant is located in a more “urban” area of ​​Atlanta, which has been particularly affected by the rising crime rate in the city. At first, Todd says they can’t talk too much about it since it’s a legal matter, but they get to the bottom of the situation. A disgruntled employee came to work drunk and got into a fight with Kandy’s cousin Melvin, who is in charge of the kitchen, leading to the employee shooting Melvin. Why Candy and Todd filmed Melvin with his arm in a sling that couldn’t be ignored and then said they couldn’t talk about the situation I don’t understand, but it’s good to see that Melvin is okay. Unfortunately, this is the second shooting in one of the Kandy restaurants after incident happened at the Old Lady Gang in 2020, prompting Sheri to say, “We don’t know when we go to the Old Lady Gang if we’ll get cookies or bullets.”

Luckily, Kandi reports that her restaurants have not been hit by accidents, but that doesn’t help the “ghetto” narrative that Kourtney has brought to this season. As we see in next week’s promo, Kandy responds to Kourtney’s claims that she “took off her hood” and we see the veins in her neck bulge as she reminds Kourtney that she is Mrs. World. Next week’s episode seems more exciting than today’s; we get along RHOP Candice Bassett’s appearance, Marlo’s outburst and Drew’s musical performance. I hope this makes up for this somewhat sluggish episode.

Sending a DM six months ago compared to two years ago is a huge difference, but I’m pretty sure Kenya always said it was before they started dating. I’m more interested in the timeline of his divorce, getting pregnant by his mistress, sending DM to Kenya and starting dating Sheri. This person has a lot of free time.

When I saw how Drew’s father lit up when he heard her song, tears came to my eyes. At this time, I send love to all her family; it is a pity that her husband could not support her personally.

Drew’s musical career is…interesting. I listened to her song “Already Know” and couldn’t get past Travis Scott’s improvisation in the background. But she has a beautiful voice! It’s embarrassing to watch her and Ralph talk about how their marriage is in better shape than ever. This makes me wonder if the end of their relationship was the result of what we all saw or the result of an isolated event.

In these first two episodes, Marlo gave a lot of energy to a friend. In fact, she brought nothing but this hilarious eavesdropping. memesbut it is clear that this will change next week.

Sanya blatantly lied about standing up for Kandy, and her little excuse for a different interpretation of the ghetto comment was amusing. If you’re going to play with big dogs, you have to learn how to handle them, girl!
