Fans of ‘Yellowjackets” Can’t Stop Thinking About Adam’s True Identity


Showtime’s new horror drama YellowjacketsThe series is causing audiences to think like crazy. This dark series is about a high school girls’ soccer team who becomes stranded in Canada after their plane crashes on the way to winning the national championship. For 19 months the girls are trapped in the middle nowhere. They have to battle starvation, severe weather and an apparently supernatural force to keep them there. This is a cut between the horrors of the past and survivors dealing with 25-years later the consequences of their decisions. YellowjacketsIt wants viewers to explore the darkest and most profound parts of the human mind.

After just eight episodes, YellowjacketsFans have many questions. Some of these will be answered in the future. The second season has been renewed. What was the date that the team finally resorts to cannibalism. Who is the Antler queen? Who is the girl hiding in the pit Who was Travis’ killer? One of the most resonant questions from fans is about Adam Martin’s true identity (Peter Gadiot). Shauna (Melanie Lynskey), stuck in a stagnant marital relationship and suffering from slow development due to trauma in the woods, has an affair with Adam early in the season. As revenge, she suspects her husband Jeff (Warren Kole), is cheating. It soon became obvious that Adam isn’t who he claims to be.

The YellowjacketsReddit boardsHave been abuzzWith TheoriesMost believe that Adam is a grown up Javi Martinez (Luciano Leroux), who was the youngest son of the soccer coach and ended up in the wild with his team. It is unclear which of the 19 crash survivors survived beyond Shauna and Taissa (Tawny Cypress), Misty(Christina Ricci), Natalie (Juliette Lewis), so Javi could have been living in the shadow of Adam to avoid the spotlight.

Unknown entity is also blackmailing the Yellowjacket survivors. Shauna’s safe was broken into to steal Shauna’s burner phone and journals detailing the horrors that they committed. Adam could be making a quick buck by exploiting the Yellowjackets’ fame. Or, is he an investigative reporter looking for answers along with Jessica Roberts? Others suggest that he’s a superfan deranged trying to get closer to the story. It is clear that the survivors are legends in the true crime community. So it is possible that Adam stalks obsessively. Adam has been referred to by many. Larger back tattooThis theory is supported by evidence. 

Another rather bizarre theory is that Adam might actually be Shauna’s son. This is the child she was expecting with her grown-up children during the woods timeline. Adam, though he seems outlandish, is still about a decade old enough for this theory to be realized. The less horrifying part is that Adam is a relative to one of the girls who committed suicide seeking revenge or answers. Lynskey, however, is starting to stir the flames of speculation on Twitter. “Yes I’ve read your Adam theories, and just so you all know, there’s one that basically no one has mentioned yet. I’m surprised but also not surprised!” She tweeted. Only two episodes remain in this season. More twists are sure to come.
