Yellowstone Season 4: Ending Explained for Season 5
When the fourth season of Yellowstone, Paramount’s contemporary Western melodrama, ended, the Dutton family was in a solid position giving a new way for Yellowstone Season 5. The cliffhanger at the end of Season 3 was far more dramatic than this.
At the beginning of the season, it was revealed that Jamie Dutton’s (Wes Bentley) biological father, Garrett Randle (Will Patton), was behind the assaults, and Kayce Dutton’s (Kaya Scodelario) (Luke Grimes). As Season 4 started, John was still in a coma after the assault, and the other characters were coping with the aftermath in their own ways. After he and his father, Kayce, go into hiding with Monica, played by Kelsey Asbille, and their son, Brecken Merill.
Beth, who has been severely wounded as a result of the incident, manipulates her way into a top position at Market Equities. Meanwhile, Jamie decides to run for governor of Montana, so he leaves the Yellowstone ranch and has a close relationship with
his biological father.
Extending the Circle of Denial
Former bad boy Jimmy (Jefferson White) returns from his lengthy spell at the 6666 ranches in Texas in the Season 4 finale, “Grass on the Streets and Weeds on the Rooftops,” a storyline that effectively acted for Yellowstone’s next spinoff, 6666.
Jimmy receives John’s acceptance, Rip’s longed-for praise, and Lloyd’s tearful, macho nod at the end of his Yellowstone arc (Forrie J. Smith).
Once this tangential (irritating and very dull) plot thread is wrapped up, the conclusion will finally catch stranded in a field behind a fence for many days. His elder (the series’ original Dave Annable) visits him from the afterlife. Lee’s lips gush blood, and he begs Kayce to allow the evil imposter in, who is obviously not his brother. The visions continue for Kayce until the girl comes, representing the ultimate spirit (perhaps the wolf that has been following him).
She shows Kayce two other ways things may go, both of which seem like bad ideas. To Monica, who is expecting their second child, he says, “I saw the end of us.”
The judge in Summer’s case delivers a speech that condenses much of Yellowstone’s clumsy conservatism into one acerbic diatribe before handing down a 37-and-a-half-year sentence, with parole eligibility set to begin in 14 years. After changing her plea to guilty and being promised a 15-year suspended sentence, Summer feels like she’s been gut-punched, and John is angry with her. Jamie discovers a ready-to-go-on-the-road Garrett. If Jamie intends to run for governor, his father knows well well that the truth about his parentage will be a major obstacle.
John Dutton and Garrett’s last encounter together was in the second-to-last episode, and it was electric with the tension of what was left unsaid. When Jamie Dutton murders his biological father, it may be a sign that the Dutton name has finally triumphed in the battle for Jamie’s allegiance.
What was Jamie’s reaction to Beth?
Jamie drops Garrett’s corpse just inside the Wyoming state border, but Beth is waiting there with her phone ready to snap a photo. While Yellowstone generally avoids moralizing about the Duttons’ heinous actions, “Grass in the Streets and Weeds on the Rooftops” may foreshadow future justice.
What does season 4 of Yellowstone end with?
Season 4 ends with the Duttons in a better position than they were in the climactic ending of Season 3, but they still may not fully appreciate the sacrifices that were necessary to get them there.
How are the relations between Garrett and John?
Although Garrett had earlier stated that he murdered Jamie’s biological mother in an effort to protect Jamie, there was clearly a lot of tension between Garrett and John.
