What's The Song That Plays At The End Of Yellowjackets Episode 3?

Contains spoilers for "Yellowjackets" Season 2, Episode 3 — "Digestif"

To say that the teenage girls at the center of "Yellowjackets" find themselves in some seriously dire circumstances is quite the understatement. After their plane crashes in the remote woods while they're flying to a major high school soccer match, the team and their coach are forced to survive in the wilderness, and the lengths they'll go to in order to do so are ... disturbing. 

As the third episode, "Digestif," comes to a close, Shauna's (Sophie Nélisse) impromptu baby shower is interrupted by what sounds like a hailstorm hitting the roof of the cabin the team calls home. Upon examination, it turns out that a flock of birds died in mid-air, hitting the cabin's roof before landing in the snow. The girls, encouraged by Lottie (Courtney Eaton), begin to pick up the birds; it's not like they can afford to be choosy at this point, right? As they collect the birds, the camera zooms back as if someone is watching the team from inside the cabin's window, and the close of the episode is scored by Tori Amos' song "Bells for Her."

Bells for Her is about inevitability

Speaking to The Baltimore Sun in 1994, Amos described "Bells for Her" as being about inevitability and accepting fate. "The main thing about 'Bells for Her' is that there is no resolve, and that's what that whole song was saying," Amos explained. "'Can't stop what's coming, can't stop what is on its way,'" she continued, quoting the song's chorus.

For these girls in the woods, the meaning is this is beyond clear. With food supplies dwindling by the minute and winter in full effect, the team has to turn to unimaginable food sources ... like the body of Ella Purnell's Jackie, who froze to death at the end of Season 1. At the end of Episode 2, "Edible Complex," the girls try to cremate Jackie, only to lightly barbecue her. Driven by their overwhelming hunger, they pick her body nearly completely clean while their coach, Ben (Stephen Krueger), watches them, horrified. Yes, it's cannibalism.

The team can't stop what's coming or what's on its way, and they know that beyond any shadow of a doubt. With Lottie as the de facto head of the group thanks to her visions and eerie, apparent omniscience, the girls are headed down a dark path, and they can't avoid it. "Yellowjackets" airs every Sunday on Showtime.
