yellowstone is back, and perhaps the biggest story of Season 5 revolved around Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) and his “return to family.”
We probably don’t need the refresher, but Jamie has pretty much always been the black sheep of the family, despite being the clean, Harvard-educated attorney the family actually relies on in many ways to save the ranch.
He’s adopted, but it probably has more to do with the fact that he wasn’t cut out for the cowboy life that makes him a second-rate son of John Dutton (Kevin Costner). As for him and Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly), we all know the story…
But when you’re trying to save a chunk of land the size of Rhode Island from government interests, corporate interests, taxes, and anyone else trying to take it, having the law on your side is the way to go
Of course, that’s why John Dutton reluctantly ran for governor of the state of Montana…it’s an act of power to protect the ranch.
And to protect his own butt, Jamie put a bullet in the head of his birth father (Garrett Randall). Beth documented the evidence (which she never really got to use without being implicated herself) and now seems to have Jamie on her hands.
Beth’s cruel treatment of Jamie is well documented and perhaps the main reason Yellowstone’s audience has grown hate her, but this has continued into Season 5, with Beth telling her brother:
“I’ll treat you like a hired mule in a moment, brother. It’s time for your pound of meat.”
She then gets Jamie to say “Yes ma’am” to her and I think that’s when everyone was waiting for Jamie to just snap.
It was posted on Yellowstone’s Reddit thread, and a number of fans agreed that they were asking for Jamie to go away. To bring down Beth, John and the entire Dutton empire and rise victorious from the ashes where the Dutton estate once stood.
And some want to see Jamie go HARD. We’re talking pretty hard about a bullet in Beth’s head…
Here’s what they had to say
“Hopefully he’ll go rogue and shut up Beth somehow.”
“I truly believe he will kill Beth before all is said and done.”
“Something has to happen. I hope for Beth’s fall. Can’t stand her character.”
“It says a lot that Beth is so mad at him that I’m cheering for Jamie now. As if a man could only take so much pressure.”
“I want him to destroy Beth first.”
“I keep reminding myself that he murdered an innocent woman in cold blood and doesn’t deserve nice things. It helps! A little. I still want him to fuck Beth royally.”
“I really want the downfall of the ranch and the Duttons to be Jamie. The monster that Beth and John helped create.”
“I assume that one day he will grab and murder Beth.”
“I’ve been Team Jamie since he punched Beth in self-defense in Season 1. I want to see more of that energy.”
“This guy is going to break out and that’s what I’m here for.”
“I actually hope the show ends with the Dutton being destroyed.”
“I would love to see Jaime win it over and show them all that he was right all along. He and Kayce can still get through this as close brothers.”
“Jamie’s character is redeemable. He’ll snap.”
I guess only time will tell…
Episode 3 of Yellowstone airs next Sunday on Paramount Network, where Market Equities hitman Sarah Atwood lies in wait to cast a spell on Jamie.
And if you’re looking for a recap of the season premiere, look no further:
Beth vs Jamie
If you are a fan of yellowstone, then you know there isn’t a more tumultuous relationship on the whole show than Beth and Jamie’s.
Jamie has always been sort of the black sheep of the Dutton family in a way, more of a clean-cut lawyer than a cowboy. More like the people trying to take over the land as opposed to the people trying to defend it.
We always seem to struggle to earn his father’s and family’s credit, but we later find out that Jamie was actually adopted, and that makes earning that credit even harder.
And as for Jamie and Beth’s relationship, we all know it’s been rocky since Jamie took Beth to an abortion clinic when she was young, and she still can’t have children to this day because of him.
Needless to say, the two don’t particularly like each other, and things got even worse when Jamie went in search of his biological father and broke away from the Dutton surname for a while.
Of course, Jamie was just looking for a sense of belonging that he hadn’t felt in quite some time, but we all know that once you have a connection to the Dutton family, and even more so to the Dutton surname, there’s no escaping it.
This ultimately led to Beth Jamie threatening to murder his birth father, who was out to get the Duttons, and even playing a role in the attacks that ended season three and started season four.
Kelly Reilly confirms season 5 won’t be the final season of ‘Yellowstone’
yellowstone is the hottest show on TV right now, Kevin Costner is the highest paid actor on TV right now, and yet fans keep asking themselves… when will it end?
After a somewhat slow Season 4, fans began to wonder if the show will meander around for a few seasons to milk the popularity for all it’s worth. But rest assured, they won’t pull one Living Dead.
And that’s good.
Anyone who started watching the Walking Dead was obsessed with it from the start. But 11 seasons later, it got boring, viewership dropped, and it will ultimately be remembered as the show that didn’t know when to end.
So with yellowstone Creator Taylor Sheridan, just reaching the peak of his popularity, is letting fans know his show won’t repeat the same mistakes.
In fact, according to an interview with the New York Times, the end is indeed in sight.
“Well, I know how it ends. I’ll write to this end. There’s only so much levitation one can do before the story starts to lose its locomotion; You can’t neutralize it just because it’s successful.
It’s going to be so many years before I tell the story, but you won’t see nine seasons of it. No way.”
He echoed this sentiment in a previous interview with Meeting, hinted that the show could potentially end after season 6, which could be sooner than fans want, but there’s no point stretching the story out for more seasons (check out How I met your mother).
“Well, I know how it ends. I know how the series ends and you need to move towards that ending in a straight line. You can’t run in circles waiting to get there because the show will stagnate.
So you have to keep moving forward and there has to be consequences in the world and there has to be an evolution towards a conclusion. Can that be two seasons beyond that? It could.”
With Season 5 already in production and the end of the story in sight… could this be the final season?
Kelly Reilly, who plays the ultimate badass Beth Dutton, says no.
In an interview with Vulture, Kelly confirmed that Season 5 is indeed not the end yellowstone, despite what people might think.
“People keep saying, ‘Is it the end? It has to be the end… it’s not the end.”
Seems like 6 or 7 seasons might be the lifespan of this show, and since they’ve used it to launch other prequels and spin-offs, Taylor Sheridan has no shortage of work.
So also when yellowstone inevitably ends as it seems yellowstone The universe will live on.
