If there is one rivalry that fans are desperate to get to the bottom of on Yellowstone, it is that of John Dutton’s children -- Beth and Jamie. A new Season 3 video is getting this fan, and undoubtedly many others, pumped for more drama between the siblings. It is all thanks to Kelly Reilly and Wes Bentley’s new teases about what is to come.
Yellowstone’s showrunner previously teased that Season 3 would see a greater exploration of Beth and Jamie’s troubled relationship. The brother and sister have not had the best bond. However, last season kicked their animosity into full gear, with Beth placing Jamie at the receiving end of many exceptionally cruel barbs.
It has all left fans to wonder why Beth hates Jamie so much. While Yellowstone’s stars have given fans a few hints here and there, the truth may finally be on its way. This is what Kelly Reilly and Wes Bentley had to say in the promotional video, Inside Yellowstone Season 3, about their characters’ arc together in Season 3:
Wes Bentley: We dig into some things that everyone's been wanting us to dig into
Kelly Reilly: Especially the reveal of what has gone on between Jamie and Beth.
Wes Bentley: To me, it explains everything.
Kelly Reilly: But even more secrets are coming.
Wes Bentley: Taylor always does that, takes you down the path you're not expecting.
Kelly Reilly: I think that's exciting as an audience member.
Wes Bentley says that what Season 3 has to reveal about Beth and Jamie’s tumultuous relationship explained “everything” for him. The million-dollar Yellowstone question is what on earth the explanation could possibly be for why Beth shows such disdain for her brother, and why their father seems to empathize with her doing so.
So far, Yellowstone has not provided much in the way of definitive clues. That said, Cole Hauser has given considerable insight into how private the row between Beth and Jamie is. Aside from noticing the tension, Hauser explained that Rip does not even know about it, which says a lot about the feud’s status heading into Season 3.
Rip has been at the Duttons’ ranch since he was a teenager, and he has been especially close to Beth during that time. A romance has been brewing between the two for quite some time. You would think that he of all people would know what is going on. Surprisingly, Yellowstone viewers may know a bit more about it going into Season 3.
Kelly Reilly hints that even though one answer is settled on Yellowstone, more secrets are on their way. Yes, more of them! I am curious what will finally lead the truth about Beth’s hatred of Jamie into the light of day. Until Season 3 premieres, fans will have to wait a bit longer.
Find out what happens between Beth and Jamie when Yellowstone’s third season premieres on Sunday, June 21 (Father’s Day), on Paramount Network. The new season is one of this summer’s premieres. If you want to catch up on Beth and Jamie’s drama so far, stream Yellowstone when it becomes available on NBCUniversal’s upcoming service, Peacock. It launches nationally on July 15.
