Yellowjackets Will we get answers regarding that? Sophie Nélisse made it very easy.

Episode 6 was a major episode for Shauna and Tai. Filming that scene, that’s the most intense scene I’ve ever shot in my entire career. She also opened up about that “deep bond” between Taissa and Shauna, Taissa and Van’s relationship, and gave a small hint about the finale. HollywoodLife got EXCLUSIVE scoop from Jasmin Savoy Brown about the challenges that lie ahead in the next episodes. Taissa and Van’s relationship has really blossomed. It might be the season, it might not be. You want to pop in, pop out. I was just completely gripped by the two of you.Jasmin Savoy Brown: Thank you.

13 Photos. But things will be answered. Tai was there for Shauna and willing to help Shauna perform an abortion. I don’t know that any of us know maybe Melanie [Lynskey] knows, but I don’t think anyone else does. The group has settled into a routine almost. She’s brilliant. What’s next in regards to Taissa and Van’s relationship at least in the past?Jasmin Savoy Brown: Well, their relationship will continue. Will other people find out? Do you think Tai would have been able to go through with it if Shauna hadn’t said stop? I don’t know that any answers are going to be found as soon as people want them to be, but there will definitely be more clues. I love, love, love working with Sophie Nélisse, and there’s no one else I would have rather done that scene with. Do you think she would have done what Shauna asked? Jasmin Savoy Brown: I actually haven’t thought about that before. Does this shared experience bond Taissa and Shauna more than anyone else in the group?Jasmin Savoy Brown: Oh, fully. If Shauna hadn’t said stop, yeah. So there’s a lot to think about in terms of survival with what they have. Van and Tai on ‘Yellowjackets.’ (Showtime)
There’s also the girl who falls into the trap and dies at the beginning of the series. Jasmin Savoy Brown in a scene from ‘Yellowjackets.’ (Showtime)
There have been those moments in the past and present where we see Taissa eating dirt in the middle of the night. I don’t know who the girl is that falls in the trap. I don’t know who that is. Will we find out the context of where that response stems from?Jasmin Savoy Brown: This show is really good at that, giving you a lot of questions and then giving answers. It will continue to grow, which of course as any growing relationship, means that there will be challenges that present themselves. Taissa has been wanting to head out in search of help, but her decision could have lasting consequences. Yellowjackets is revving into high gear in the second half of its first season. Taissa wouldn’t want Shauna to be alone in that. I think that is fine for me to say. HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with ‘Yellowjackets’ star Jasmin Savoy Brown about Taissa and Van’s romance and admitted people will ‘cry’ over the finale. They share a deep bond — the bond of the secret but also the bond of the trauma, trying to get rid of the secret. I have a feeling there will be a reckoning of sorts.Jasmin Savoy Brown: People are going to cry. There will definitely be more clues. Tai would have done it because Tai really thinks she can do everything best, like the best way, and knows that Shauna would have done it anyway on her own and probably would have f**ked it up and hurt herself and been alone in that. We haven’t seen much of the team in the present day, including Van. Specifically with them or just…Jasmin Savoy Brown: In general, but yeah, their relationship continues to grow. I feel like things are going a little too smoothly. But fans are going to be happy with how certain things turn out. Both of you were incredible. This is not the same team as before the plane crash. Are they going to become more open about their relationship, at least other people in the group?Jasmin Savoy Brown: In a group of girls, there’s really no such thing as a secret. There are 10 episodes of the season. I think another pivotal moment was when Shauna chose to come up and sleep in the attic with Tai, but the attempted abortion bonded them in a way that few people on this earth are bonded. Winter is coming, and no one is truly prepared for what that will bring. Tai is the only person who knows Shauna’s secret. That’s such a good question. I think that moment is pivotal in their relationship, and everything changes going forward. This b*tch is like, “I don’t know, am I gonna be able to cry?” She was just goofing off and cracking jokes with me, and then they’re like “action” and she’s weeping. I’ll say that. Whether or not they want it to get out, it’s going to get out at some point. Avery Thompson

Is there anything you can tease about the next set of challenges they’re going to face?Jasmin Savoy Brown: They are running out of food, and summer is only going to last so long. So I would say almost every single question that someone has will be answered. We know Natalie, Tai, Shauna, Misty, and Travis all make it out, but there are a lot of questions there about how everything is fleshed out.Jasmin Savoy Brown: They’re going to start giving more clues. Is there anything you could tease about the finale? I mean, it is only a matter of time as Taissa points out until people start to figure it out.Jasmin Savoy Brown: Yeah, everything is only a matter of time in the world of Yellowjackets. They’ve rationed their food.
