"Yellowjackets" Season 2 with Dr. Jessi Gold Analyze Scripts

    • Mental Health

Welcome back to Analyze Scripts, where a psychiatrist and a therapist analyze what Hollywood gets right and wrong about mental health. Today, we are joined by Dr. Jessi Gold to analyze season two of "Yellowjackets." In this episode we discuss cults, schizophrenia, catatonia and the ghastly depiction of ECT.  We see many different depictions of trauma responses in this season, some from psychological stressors and others from their worsening physical state. Were you as shocked as we were to learn the mouse is actually dead? Was that a hallucination due to starvation or psychological trauma, the answer is probably both. "Yellowjackets" keeps us guessing and cringing through all nine episodes this season, but we are ready for a break and hope the actors are practicing some self care!  We hope you enjoy!

[00:10] Dr. Katrina Furey: Hi, I'm Dr. Katrina Fury, a psychiatrist.
[00:12] Portia Pendleton: And I'm Portia Pendleton, a licensed clinical social worker.
[00:16] Dr. Katrina Furey: And this is Analyze Scripts, a podcast where two shrinks analyze the depiction of mental health in movies and TV shows.
[00:23] Portia Pendleton: Our hope is that you learn some legit info about mental health while feeling like you're chatting with your girlfriends.
[00:28] Dr. Katrina Furey: There is so much misinformation out there, and it drives us nuts.
[00:31] Portia Pendleton: And if someday we pay off our student loans or land a sponsorship, like.
[00:36] Dr. Katrina Furey: With a lay flat airline or a major beauty brand, even better.
[00:39] Portia Pendleton: So sit back, relax, grab some popcorn.
[00:42] Dr. Katrina Furey: And your DSM Five and enjoy. Back to another episode of Analyze scripts. We are so excited to once again be joined by Dr. Jesse Gold today to talk about the second season of Showtime's hit show Yellow Jackets. Thanks so much for coming back, Jesse.
[01:12] Dr. Jessi Gold: Thanks for having me.
[01:13] Dr. Katrina Furey: I do have to say, this show is really messed up. I feel like season one was a lot, and then we sort of watched it really quick to record our first episode and then watch season two really quick. And I was like, I had to take some breaks, I'll be honest, along the way, because it got really intense really fast.
[01:34] Portia Pendleton: Yeah.
[01:38] Dr. Katrina Furey: Maybe like a two out of ten on a scale of one to ten. So not like fully this season.
[01:43] Dr. Jessi Gold: I think it was like last season, they were like, this is a show about cannibals, but you never saw it.
[01:50] Dr. Katrina Furey: Right?
[01:50] Dr. Jessi Gold: This season was like, remember when you're walking?
[01:54] Dr. Katrina Furey: Here it is. Yeah, here it is.
[01:58] Dr. Jessi Gold: They danced around it in a way that was like, fine last season. And this season they were like, all.
[02:04] Dr. Katrina Furey: Right, here you go.
[02:06] Dr. Jessi Gold: And there are definitely parts where you're like, yeah, I can't watch it.
[02:10] Dr. Katrina Furey: Yes, I know. I told Portia when we were watching it, I stopped right around when Shauna was about to deliver the baby because I was so scared they were going to eat the baby. I was like, I can't watch that. And I think you actually had to tell me. They don't I looked up the spoiler.
[02:28] Portia Pendleton: Yeah, they post on their TikTok, right? Like, the cast being like, we do not eat the baby. You can watch it, I guess, trigger non warning. And I was like, we do a.
[02:38] Dr. Katrina Furey: Lot of things, but that's where we draw the line. Gosh. So, I mean, I think we have to get started since this was really early in the first episode, ECT and the depiction of ECT. Right. Like, you probably felt as good about that as I did, which is not very good.
[02:57] Dr. Jessi Gold: It is the first time I was disappointed.
[03:00] Dr. Katrina Furey: Yeah, right.
[03:02] Dr. Jessi Gold: Last season, I was really excited about all of their mental health portr
