- In the episode, Beth discovers two big secrets while John is reunited with his old love, Summer.
At the beginning of the episode, we catch up with Beth (Kelly Reilly) following her arrest for aggravated assault. She is sharing a cell with another woman, and we see the two swap stories about how they ended up in jail for the night.
Their conversation is interrupted when an officer comes to pick up Beth, as Jamie has shown up to pay her bail. “Bethany Dutton?” she asks herself, which makes Beth stand up.
“You don’t look like a Bethany,” the other inmate comments as Beth walks out. Beth tells her that she isn’t. “I’m a Beth,” she says with a smile.
While it doesn’t seem like a major moment at first, names and identities come up again at the end of the episode when Beth does some digging into Sarah Atwood (Dawn Olivieri) after she catches her on a date with Jamie (Wes Bentley). ).
When she discovers that there is no trace of the new Market Equities adviser online, Beth concludes that he must be using a fake nickname. We’re still not quite sure why and what Sarah’s true intentions are in Montana, but we know we can trust Beth to find out.
Following the arrangements made in last week’s episode, the son of Kayce (Luke Grimes) and Monica (Kelsey Asbille) is laid to rest in this episode in what is depicted as a traditional Native American ceremony among the Broken Rock tribe.
As the tribe is completely fictional and based on several real Native American tribes, the particular customs or traditions that they follow have not always been clear. However, in this episode we see how they bury their dead.
Members of the tribe, including Monica’s family and Chief Thomas Rainwater (Gil Birmingham), are shown chanting prayers before Monica’s cut braided hair is placed on top of the coffin, which has been draped in a designer blanket. intricate.
However, the meaning behind their customs, especially the burial of a dead animal with the body, still leaves John, Rip, and many others a bit confused.
“I guess the kid’s got a thing for riding in the sky,” Rip says when trying to determine the importance of burying the horse with the baby, leading John to reply tersely, “Horses in the sky.”
“The Good I’ll Do,” by the 26-year-old country star, can be heard during the montage in which Rip and the other ranch hands spend the day branding cattle and teaching young men how to be cowboys.
Bryan’s trademark raspy voice, which he mixes with classic folk melodies, has made him a rising star in the world of country music. He only signed a record deal with Warner Records, through his own Belting Broncos label, in 2021, but has already been nominated for his first Grammy.
Earning the “Yellowstone” stamp of approval is sure to give Bryan’s career a boost like this.it has already done it for so many artists.
When John uses his power as governor to pardon Summer Higgins (Piper Perabo), she reveals how long it has been since she and John last saw each other.
“Just so you know, I just went a year without sex, which is the longest I’ve gone since the first time I had it, and I’m still not going to fuck you,” she tells him when she gets the impression that John wants to reboot. their romantic relationship.
Viewers, and Jamie, should already know that the Deerfield Club is one of Beth’s favorite bars, so what was the chance that she was there, too, the night of her date with Sarah? We would say pretty high.
Since Beth also explicitly threatened to ruin Jamie’s life early in the episode when she found out that he has a secret child, we have no idea why Jamie wasn’t looking over her shoulder a little more.
That said, Jamie has never been able to outwit Beth, and in this case, he was slightly distracted by Sarah, who shamelessly flirts with him, leading the pair to sneak off together in a bathroom.
It’s still not exactly clear what Sarah’s intentions are with Jamie, but given how eager he was to drop his defenses and get into bed with her, we think he’ll have it wrapped around his finger soon enough.
