We knew that Jackie hadn’t survived the time in the wilderness. It took until the Yellowjackets Season 1 finale to find out how she died.

Finding out that the teenagers turned to cannibalism to survive made it seem like all the people who didn’t make it through the time in the wilderness was due to being killed and eaten. However, it was soon clear that deaths happened in other ways.

Jackie made it to the Yellowjackets Season 1 finale. It looked like the girls were going to turn on her while high on shrooms in the penultimate episode, but she made it out of the closet. Of course, she couldn’t forgive anyone for what they did while on shrooms, but then there were still some people angry at her for sleeping with Travis.

Jackie didn’t stop her attack on her friends, and that included Shauna. She’d realized that Shauna’s baby daddy was actually Jeff. As the friendship broke apart, Jackie found herself outside in the cold…literally.

Jackie died of hypothermia in Yellowjackets Season 1 finale

Jackie spent the night outside. That would have been fine had a snowstorm not arrived. Shauna woke up the next morning to find everywhere covered in snow, and she immediately feared the worse.

As she went outside, we saw what she was shocked to actually see. It was Jackie’s body covered in snow. We’d just seen Jackie go into the cabin and see her friends, including Laura Lee who had just died when she tried to use the small plane to get help. That was a clear sign that Jackie had died.

What will happen with Jackie’s body now? Is this going to be the point that the girls decide to turn to cannibalism to survive? It’s certainly possible, but the teens aren’t all that hungry. They’d just killed and eaten a bear. We may see them bury Jackie and turn to cannibalism after a later death.
