Now that yellowstone With the first half of Season 5 wrapped, fans will have ample time to reflect on the full implications of this midseason finale.
yellowstoneThe latest episode of , A Knife and No Coin, is the mid-season finale of the hit series and sees members of the Dutton family embroiled in open war with one another, leading us to wonder if Jamie actually left his father out of office could remove .
Warning: This post contains spoilers for Yellowstone Season 5 Episode 8.
The main plot development of this episode is Jamie’s decision to go ahead with trying to remove his father from the governor’s office. When John and Beth find out what Jamie did, Beth aptly describes it as a declaration of war.
The move leads to a violent confrontation between Beth and Jamie, with each threatening the other. Beth threatens to reveal that Jamie killed Garrett if he proceeds with the impeachment, and Jamie then threatens to reveal how many bodies John disposed of in his years as head of the family. Jamie adds that he knows John Yellowstone is about to crash into the ground and he plans to do whatever it takes to save the ranch.
Back in Yellowstone, the sheltered wolves living on the ranch are being killed, and it seems like John knew that was going to happen. What seems clearer, however, is that Jamie and Beth aren’t just planning a legal war, but are doing everything they can to get the other out of the way.
Towards the end of the episode we see Jamie and Sarah snogging when Jamie asks her if she knows anyone who could take down Beth more permanently. Jamie knows Beth will attack him in a similar way, and he wants to be prepared. Sarah says she does, even agreeing to meet with some potential hitmen on his behalf.
The episode doesn’t end on this rather climactic note, however. Instead, we get a final scene between Kayce and Monica where she gives him the idea to move to East Camp while they tend to the Duttons’ ranch. She suggests that this might be the best way for them to get everything they’ve always wanted. It’s a nice scene, but a bit run down from all the potential bloodshed that the rest of the episode suggests.
In an opening flashback, we see Rip becoming part of the Dutton clan, which has thematic significance for the rest of the episode. Jamie may be at war with the rest of his family, but once you’re a Dutton, you’re in it for life. Maybe Jamie and his dad will eventually find each other again. Because even as he plans the death of one of his siblings, he’s still part of the family.
This cliffhanger won’t unravel anytime soon. Season 5 of yellowstone will resume episodes some time this summer.
