10. "It Chooses" - Yellowjackets

Black Mirror Loch Henry

A non-linear adaptation depicting a group of teenagers involved in a plane crash and the insidious effects of the accident on their adult lives, Yellowjackets' debut outing received an outpouring of critical acclaim.

The exemplary quality of Showtime's latest horror drama didn't let up with the arrival of the second season. That's actually a bit of an understatement when you take into account the penultimate offering, "It Chooses".

The sequences set in the past take the core group's descent into madness to unparalleled new levels. Beset upon by terrifying hallucinations, the survivors turn on one another, drawing cards to determine a human sacrifice for consumption. Unsurprisingly, this all comes together in exceedingly dark - and entertaining - fashion, with the reveal that Akilah has been conversing with a dead mouse serving as a particular highlight.

In the present day, the adult Yellowjackets participate in the darkest talking circle imaginable, with an array of electric revelations coming to light. It's a testament to the acting quality on display that both time periods remain just as riveting, despite the marked juxtaposition in their respective stakes.

"It Chooses" caps matters off with a spine-tingling cliffhanger. Insisting that the wilderness is owed a sacrifice, Lottie confronts her fellow survivors with a poisonous form of Russian roulette, leaving the viewer hanging off the edge of their seat in anticipation of the finale.
