Yellowstone Fans: Why The Season 5 Premiere Of “Yellowstone” Broke Fans’ Hearts

Yellowstone Fans: Fans of Yellowstone had to wait an entire year for the fifth season’s premiere, but it was well worth the wait, as the premiere featured not one but two all-new episodes. In comparison, some people were put off by the repeated “how do I watch Yellowstone?”. Others dove right back into the Dutton family saga. Following the particularly harrowing two-and-a-half-hour premiere, fans on Instagram admitted they “cried so much” and were left in shambles. See for yourself why this elicited such genuine support from the audience.

John Takes Office

John Dutton (Kevin Costner) wins a close election and becomes Montana’s governor. Our top priority is to prevent Montana from becoming “the rich man’s plaything.” The airport project threatened his land and the national park, but he promised to protect the farmers and ranchers by stopping it. If elected, he pledges to charge out-of-state buyers four times as much in sales tax and other fees on top of the already high property taxes. As governor, Dutton seems determined to pick a fight this year. Upon taking office, John fired his entire staff and replaced them with his daughter Beth (Kelly Reilly), who hired her brother Jamie (Wes Bentley) as an aide.

Kayce And Monica’s Tragic Loss

Season 4 concluded with good news for Kayce (Luke Grimes) and Monica (Kelsey Asbille): they were moving out of the ranch and into their own house, and Monica had just announced she was pregnant. At the start of Season 5, Monica, who is only three weeks away from giving birth, goes into labour while Kayce is away on a case. She takes her and her husband’s son Tate (Breckin Merrill) in her car to the emergency room. Kayce promises to meet them and dispatches an ambulance to take them to safety. Unfortunately, Monica has a car accident on the way, and the baby is killed.

Tate tells his grandfather, in a touching scene, that he is looking forward to becoming a brother and that the baby will be named John in his honor.

Comedic Relief From John And Carter

When John (played by Finn Little) runs across Carter (the teen) in the barn, he can’t place him. The rest of us don’t blame him! And when we spotted him, we did a double take, too. If he grows a beard, John will order him to “Stop eating the fertilizer… Stop growing. It creeps me out. You’re a living reminder of how little time I don’t have.”
Seeing how we were in Yellowstone, our fun didn’t last long. Carter rode John’s horse after the governor rarely had time to get out on his steed. His horse slipped into a hole as he and the ranch men were herding cattle. Carter fell off and fractured his arm; the horse also broke a leg, so Rip had to put him down.

Beth Makes a Heartbreaking Apology To Rip

After Beth oppresses Rip in a bar, the two left. Beth and one of the ranch hands return home later that night, and Rip catches them passionately kissing.

In the here and now, Beth offers to Rip a “blanket apology to cover the past.” She sobs, “I robbed us of so much time together,” and admits she was “awful” to rip. Rip tells Beth that she “did put me through hell” but that he loves her and only wants her to be happy.

Rancher Hands Kill The Wolves

Two ranch hands, Ryan (Ian Bohen) and Colby (Denim Richards) set out to protect the Dutton herd after they’ve been attacked by local wolves. The ranchers use thermal imaging to kill a pack of wolves attacking one of their cows at night, only to learn that the wolves are park visitors. They are safe and secure in their GPS collars. Ryan observes, “These wolves have Facebook pages!” Rip assists them in cleaning up this mess, but they are in deep trouble if word gets out that protected wolves were killed on Governor Dutton’s property.
