Yellowstone’ has been one of the best shows in recent times and its characters have now become household names. However, there was a lot of curiosity among fans to know how the Duttons actually made it to the place where they own a ranch now. That’s how creator Taylor Sheridan came out with the idea of creating a show that reveals what happened before the Duttons became such authoritative figures in the state of Montana.

 Titled ‘1883’, the story revolves around the ancestors of the Dutton family and how they made their way to Yellowstone. The first two episodes revealed how different the two worlds are. The prequel series showed how disease, looting were significant at that time and people would have to go through a lot of problematic situations to make their lives worth living. However, Episode 3 primarily focuses on their journey to reach a better place.


'1883' Episode 1 Review: A grim, electrifying start to the Dutton origin exploration 

'1883' Episode 1: Shea and James band together for the precarious trip up North

There are two dominating individuals in the clan, Shea Brennan (Sam Elliot’ and James Dutton (Tim McGraw). Although they respect each other, their egos come out too often and that’s when the tension arises. Now, Shea wants to go to the East while James wants to head toward the West. They both talk about it and Shea tells him that heading to the West can be quite dangerous for everyone. To which, James says that he doesn’t work for him and he will go wherever he wants to.

Shea gets agitated at first but doesn’t say anything. However, he shows his domination in front of the clan who thinks he is a savior. One of the women, who lost her husband during the journey, tells him that all her stuff was taken away by some men and she is left here with nothing to feel her children.  Shea gets really angry and gets to those three men with one of his partners, Thomas (Lamonica Garrett).

They beat the hell out of those three guys and destroy their chariot. Shea looks at them and says if he ever sees any one of them again, he’ll kill them for sure.

Later in the day, some people are complaining about Shea to one of their leaders. Their leader says that he won’t Shea here. Shea hears that and approaches the man while telling a story on how he has killed more than 5,000 people in his life and he won’t feel anything after killing him. The man gets frightened and leaves the place. Shea tells everyone that he is not leaving anywhere and if anyone has problems with him, they should come and talk directly.

The entire scenario showed how much of a bada** Shea is and who’s the real boss? He never lets his guard down and the clan needs him for his experience.

‘1883’ will return to Paramount+ with a new episode every Sunday.
