Why Did Javi Run Away in Yellowjackets?

March 29, 2024

After surviving the plane crash in Yellowjackets, Javi (Luciano Leroux) disappeared. Then, two months later, he shows up back at the cabin, and everyone is stunned that he survived. While his return is hugely important to the story, it also raises a lot of questions about how he did so and what happens next.

Why Did Javi Run Away in Yellowjackets?

The last time we saw Javi, he was running away from the Yellowjackets after a horrific incident involving Misty (Samantha Hanratty) and the girls drinking fermented berries that were accidentally spiked with magic mushrooms. The resulting hallucinations caused the girls to go wild and chase Travis through camp with a knife, and Javi managed to escape into the woods just in time.

When Javi returned to the cabin, he didn't say much and seemed very out of it, but that's because the rest of the group had gotten so high that they were forgetting what reality even was. Javi told the girls he knows of a place that they don't know about, and Nat (Sophie Thatcher) convinces him to take her there on an iced-over lake. The ice cracks, though, and Javi falls in. Natalie tries to save him, but the other girls convince her that the wilderness made their choice and that they have to sacrifice her in his place.

Regardless of how Javi came back to the cabin, his presence is sure to cause problems with Travis and the rest of the survivors. In the meantime, we'll just have to wait to see what happens next in the final episodes of Yellowjackets.
