The Nervous Scout is a member of Snow Scout Troop 113 in the Netflix adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events.


Early Life

She is a part of Snow Scout Troop 113,[3] paid for by her "extremely wealthy" parents.[4]

At some point, she heard the legend of the Great Unknown, and that is was a metaphor for death.[2]

The Slippery Slope: Part One

The Snow Scouts are hiking up Mount Fraught for their annual crowning of False Spring Queen when they duck into a cave to hide from Snow Gnats. While there, they are joined by Violet and Klaus Baudelaire, whom Carmelita Spats recognizes and hates, though Brucie insists they be accommodating and her and the new, masked scout welcome them in.

The scouts listen to Carmelita's self-insert stories until the masked scout and Violet and Klaus distract with their coded conversation. They recite the pledge, and then go to sleep.

The Slippery Slope: Part Two

The next morning, the scouts continue their hike up Mount Fraught- whether they notice or care the absence of the masked scout and Violet and Klaus is unclear. The Nervous Scout seems to have been given the job of carrying the flag that they will use in the False Spring ceremony.

Carmelita becomes fed up with Brucie's complaints and encourages the scouts to abandon her on the mountainside, to which the bored scouts cheer, clap and agree. They march behind Carmelita and leave Brucie to the wilderness.

Upon reaching the top of Mount Fraught, they find their missing scouts, Count Olaf, Esmé Squalor, a Hook-Handed Man, a Man with a Beard but No Hair and a Woman with Hair but No Beard. Though the missing scouts, in a panic, warn the scouts that the adults plan to kidnap them, Carmelita does not listen and crowns herself False Spring Queen. The other scouts are invited to step onto a large net to begin their dance, but as they do, the Man with a Beard but No Hair and the Woman with Hair but No Beard blow their whistles to summon their eagles, which arrive and kidnap the scouts, who scream in terror.

The Man and Woman proceed to set fire to all the scouts' parents' homes, killing their parents and leaving their fortunes to the children they just abducted, to be forced into the fire-starting side of VFD. The children are taken to the twosome, still screaming in the eagles' net.

The Grim Grotto: Part Two

She is seen among the Snow Scouts that are forced to row The Carmelita by Count Olaf and Esmé Squalor, and listen to Carmelita's endless and aggravating dance recitals. They groan as she announces another song.

Carmelita demands they clap, to which she replies that her hands are too sore from the constant rowing. Violet then sets off a false Great Unknown alarm, which terrifies the scouts; she says she heard that it was a metaphor for death. Violet sets off a riot, and the scouts flee. When Phil tries to help Esmé prevent this, she knocks him to the ground, calling for revolution.

Afterwards, Fernald and Fiona escape the brig of the submarine, and steal it while Olaf, Esmé and Carmelita are ashore using the phone, thus freeing the kidnapped scouts.


My hands are too sore to clap!
I heard that it's a metaphor for death!


  • She is portrayed by Maya Kooner, credited as "Another Snow Scout" in "The Grim Grotto: Part Two."
  • Aside from Carmelita and Quigley, she and Snow Scout 6 are the only two Snow Scouts to have speaking lines.
  • Her claiming that the Great Unknown is a metaphor for death is a reference to the popular fan reading (and possibly intentional subtext) that the Great Unknown is, indeed, a metaphor for death, as everyone taken by it is taken into the unknown and their fates are unclear.
