'Yellowstone' season 2 episode 10 finale might see the death of a certain Dutton family member with dire consequences for everyone

Spoilers ahead for episode 9 of season two of 'Yellowstone' titled 'Enemies by Monday' 

We are all worried that a certain member of the Dutton family will be killed in the season two finale of Paramount Network's flagship show 'Yellowstone'. 

Towards the end of the last episode, 'Enemies by Monday', the youngest member of the Dutton family was taken captive. Tate Dutton (Brecken Merrill) was nowhere to be found. Instead, his father Kayce (Luke Grimes) just finds an empty boot belonging to Tate. Tate had gone to feed his horse late in the night after dinner with grandfather John Dutton (Kevin Costner) and did not return.

Since episode 9 'Enemies by Monday' was the penultimate episode, we did expect it to end of a cliffhanger raising questions towards the end. However, we find ourselves in a pickle. 'Yellowstone' did not actually show Tate being taken by the Beck brothers (Neal McDonough's Malcolm Beck and Terry Serpico's Teal Beck). At the moment, all we know is that Tate is missing and in grave danger.


While we are not saying it isn't possible for the Becks to have kidnapped Tate, the Duttons do have other sworn enemies apart from the brother. Sure John Dutton had formed an alliance with his former enemies in order to take over the Becks. But this is 'Yellowstone' and no one really plays fair. Could it be that someone from this alliance went back on their word?

We are also a little concerned about the Becks' plane that Kayce rigged at the beginning of the episode. The Becks own a private plane and Kayce has rigged it with an explosive device. At first, it seems like a good idea, but now with Tate missing, is it? What if the device goes off with Tate in the plane with Malcolm and Teal? This might be more bad news — something that the Duttons will have to live with the rest of their lives. 

Will the Dutton family be able to save Tate? Victory doesn't come without suffering, but we do not want the casualty to be Tate. What does Monica (Kelsey Asbille), Tate's mother, think of this situation? If Tate is returned, will she leave the ranch for good this time around and will she take Kayce with her? 


These are all the questions we hope we get answers to when 'Yellowstone' airs the upcoming episode titled 'Sins of the Father' on Wednesday at 10 pm PT/ET on Paramount Network.
