The Yellowjackets soccer team's fateful trip was not only attended by the team and its coaches, but also by Coach Martinez's two sons, Travis and Javi. Tragically, Coach Martinez dies when the plane crashes and leaves his sons behind. Javi is deeply affected by his father's death and even keeps the piece of gum he was given by his dad to prevent his ears from popping on the plane for three days. To help Javi feel closer to his dad, Travis and Natalie (Sophie Thatcher) break into Coach Martinez's grave and take his class ring to give to Javi. Shauna (Sophie Nélisse) also offers Javi comfort and suggests that he write down his thoughts in a journal if he needs.
The characters in Season 1 Episode 9, "Doomcoming," consume unknowingly spiked berries and mushrooms, causing them to hallucinate. Travis is distracted by Jackie, leaving Javi to observe the others' descent into madness, with Lottie's warning of "Run!" being particularly haunting. Although their grief is softened by the knowledge that they all survived, the situation is still frightening.
As a result, Javi flees the girls into the woods, briefly returning before running off again. At the start of Season 2, Javi is still nowhere to be found, but winter has arrived in the Canadian wilderness, making it seemingly impossible to predict if Javi is alive or dead. Some fans have theorized he's alive, while others aren't as hopeful.

Javi is absent in the beginning of the second season of Yellowjackets because he left the group after their homecoming party, which was dubbed a "doomcoming." In the prior episode, the survivors had ingested magic mushrooms, leading to a chaotic night. Jackie and Travis ended up engaging in sexual relations, and the other girls attempted to do the same against Travis's will, as well as take part in a strange ritual.
On that chaotic night, Javi chose to flee after being spotted in the woods by Shauna. She urged him to run, and his whereabouts have been unknown ever since. Understandably, Javi was terrified after the crash, believing that they would all perish. In the face of the events that night, he clearly thought it best to escape.

We’re not sure if Javi had intentions of coming back, but by the premiere of Yellowjackets season 1, he’s gone. Travis and Nat are still looking for him, going out on treks together to try and find anything that could lead them to him.
Because we don’t see an adult Javi in the present-day timeline, we can assume he probably doesn’t make it out of the wilderness alive. But hopefully, we’ll get a concrete answer at some point this season.
Only time will tell if Javi is still alive. The second season of Yellowjackets will start premiering on March 24, 2023, with episodes airing on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime. is a website that provides you with sport updates and Entertainment news to brighten your day.
