During a recent interview with Insider, “Yellowjackets” co-showrunners and executive producers Jonathan Lisco, Ashley Lyle, and Bart Nickerson were asked about seeing the symbol everywhere, and in particular, on the bodies of their fanbase. Lisco told Insider that he was “actually very nervous” to see the journalist with the symbol drawn on her hand, only to tease “But we can’t tell you why.” The symbol has so far been shown as an omen for unexplainable events around the cabin but also adorns all of the necklaces worn by the members of Lottie’s
cult intentional community. Ashley Lyle told Insider that she’d seen a number of fans with the symbol tattooed on their body, and more or less said these fans are playing with fire.
“I’m like, ‘You don’t know what that means,'” Lyle said. “That is a dangerous game to play.” It’s hard not to think about the number of people who named their daughters “Khaleesi” or “Daenerys” at the height of “Game of Thrones” excitement, not realizing that she was not only not going to become the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, but that she was destined to be an unlikely villain. I was gifted a vinyl decal of the “Yellowjackets” symbol for my birthday last year and have yet to put it anywhere because … Okay, yeah, I’m superstitious! I don’t wanna end up putting a decal on my car that turns out to mean “I SUPPORT SACRIFICIAL CANNIBALISM!”
Let this be a lesson to us all: don’t get something tattooed unless you know precisely what it means … or, yanno, do whatever you want. I’m not your mom. I’m just trying to keep you from getting haunted by tree demons.
