Yellowjackets S2 Premiere: Why Shauna And Jeff's Studio Tryst Could Be Their Undoing

Contains spoilers for Yellowjackets Season 2, Episode 1 — "Friends, Romans, Countrymen"

The characters on "Yellowjackets" don't always make the best decisions. That might even be kind of an understatement. Throughout the first season, Shauna (Melanie Lynskey) cheats on her husband Jeff (Warren Kole) with a younger man, Adam (Peter Gadiot)... and then she stabs Adam when she suspects him of blackmailing her and her friends. (Jeff's shock that she wasn't going to book club, like she claimed, is one of the season's funniest moments.) Frankly, this entire series of events is one bad call after another.

Then, in the Season 2 premiere, Shauna and Jeff do something else completely boneheaded. Realizing that Adam still has an art studio that the police will likely search as they try and find out what happened to him, the two head over there. Alas, the room filled with drawings of Shauna from top to bottom, sending Jeff into a spiral. One thing leads to another, and before long, a few words from Shauna have the two in flagrante on one of the tables in the studio. This is a horrible idea, because it's not impossible that they left clear evidence on the premises.

Shauna and Jeff potentially made a huge mistake

To put it somewhat delicately, it's extremely possible that the two left... a form of DNA in Adam's studio, and we're not talking about their fingerprints (although there's that, too). Getting down and dirty in the studio of a man one of you murdered is just not a good idea, and that should be pretty obvious. That said, Shauna and Jeff have a grand old time and, though they set fire to the place, we don't see the studio fully burn down, which definitely feels ominous.

Shauna and Jeff aren't exactly hardened criminals, and between the two of them, Jeff is definitely way worse at covering his tracks — considering that he's the one behind the blackmail that went down in Season 1 and was pretty bad at pulling it off. As Season 2 gets going, it's entirely possible that this moment could be Shauna and Jeff's collective downfall; they're trying to cover up a murder, after all, and one moment of distraction could be the difference between getting off scot-free or a pair of his-and-hers orange jumpsuits.
