Showtimes‘NS Yellow jacket was somehow able to boost the ante after its electrifying premiere – and all thanks to a Misty Quigley. Played by Christina Ricci in this day and Sammi Hanratty in the 1996 flashback, Misty might be the simplest character of all Gold jacket. At first glance, the football team’s equipment manager is both awkward and withdrawn. However, after the plane crash, Misty is able to demonstrate leadership qualities through her knowledge of first aid and her talent for amputation therapy. What’s different is that this newfound fame changes Misty’s priorities to the point where she transforms herself from the girls’ savior to their captor. All because of teenage insecurities!
Yellow jacketMisty Quigley is the wildest female character on television and we all need to praise Sammi Hanratty and Christina Ricci for bringing her to life that is lively, scary, and fun.
Yellow jacket tells the story of a high school girls soccer team forced to survive in the wilderness after a plane crash. We follow the characters in two parallel timelines. One recounts how the Yellowjackets team dealt with the immediate horror of the crash while the other looks back on the shattered lives of the four survivors. In both versions, there is one character who is clearly an odd girl: Misty.
Teen Misty is a clumsy pleaser who is used to painful jokes. By managing the Yellowjackets team, she has access to both greatness and fame, but remains on the sidelines. As an adult, Misty worked in a nursing home. When her accusations disrespect her, she displays a malicious personality and when men seem disinterested in her, she puts them in situations where she can’t be denied. The difference between young and mature Misty is that the older version really knows how appreciated it is. In Yellow jacket Episode 2, she single-handedly protects survivors and saves lives.
For Misty, it wasn’t enough to feel appreciated. She needs to keep that feeling. Too bad at the end of the episode, Misty did the unthinkable. When she discovered the plane’s black boxes, she used her know-how to disable it, ensuring that a search party wouldn’t find them in due time. Basically, she decided to send all the survivors down to an earthly hell so she could continue to feel like she fit in. To the end Yellow jacket Episode 2, it’s clear that the mature Misty will do anything to belong again. She does everything she can to seduce adult Natalie (Juliette Lewis), immediately to intervene in the car of the colder woman. To paraphrase Natalie herself, Misty is a crazy bitch.
Misty is a character unlike any other on TV. She is the concept of processed embarrassment. She’s an underdog who craves to fit in. She is a mad conspirator who will probably kill you. She was simply entertained in the most horrifyingly entertaining way possible. And she wouldn’t be working without Hanratty and Ricci’s seamless dual performance.
Believe me when I say Misty Quigley is more than just a character you love to hate. You also love to just love her.
