'Yellowstone' season 2 episode 3 to return after a two-week break and here's what lies ahead for the Dutton ranch
'Yellowstone' is at a stage where one wrong step from John Dutton and the Dutton army could lead to the ranch going into the hands of someone else.
It has been a good two weeks now that Paramount Network's flagship show 'Yellowstone' came to TV. The second's season's second episode titled 'New Beginnings' aired on June 26, 2019. Seems like a really long time ago, right?
The third episode 'The Reek of Desperation', which will air on Paramount Network on July 10, 2019, however, marks a turning point in the second season of the drama.
At this point in time, 'Yellowstone' is at a stage where one wrong step from John Dutton (played by Kevin Costner) and the Dutton army could lead to the ranch going into the hands of someone else. Dutton Sr and daughter Beth (played by Kelly Reilly) are working hard towards grooming a new candidate in Cassidy Reid (played by Kelly Rohrbach). If you think you're jumping the gun into thinking that Reid is getting the Dutton service because they have ulterior motives, you're not wrong.
Simultaneously, back at the ranch, after last week's brawl, Kayce (played by Luke Grimes) and Rip (played by Cole Hauser) find just enough common ground to make it work on the ranch. Still, both of Dutton's favorite and loyal aides coming together might not have the power to stop the season's Big Bad.
We will finally see Malcolm Beck, the Big Bad for the second season of 'Yellowstone' – introduced only in this episode. Played by Neal McDonough, Beck is a very powerful business rival who doesn't hesitate to take what he wants and neither does he care about how he gets it.
It looks like Jamie(Wes Bentley) is having a hard time picking his battles and showing his loyalty. Also, his dilemma seems to be increasing through the season. With Jamie back in the drama seemingly on the team of Dutton's biggest enemies, along with a new villain, it looks like the third episode is going to be something.
Things at the Dutton ranch might not go back to the same from here. Ever.
Oscar and Emmy winner Costner is the marquee attraction of the ensemble cast in the drama series, starring as the patriarch of a powerful, complicated family of ranchers. A sixth-generation homesteader and devoted father, John controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States. He operates in a corrupt world where politicians are compromised by influential oil and lumber corporations and land grabs make developers billions. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect, Dutton's property is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America's first national park.
'Yellowstone' S2E3 'The Reek of Desperation' will air on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, at 10 pm ET/PT.
