'Yellowstone' Season 2 Episode 6: 'Blood the Boy' will finally see some father-son-grandfather bonding
While the investigations into the killing of cattle are on, it is interspersed with some heartwarming moments that we have been hoping for since the second season started airing.
Spoilers for the sixth episode of 'Yellowstone'
Last week's episode for 'Yellowstone', titled 'Touching You Enemy', had the Duttons busy with damage control. The hunt for the one responsible for killing the Dutton cattle is still ongoing. Kayce (played by Luke Grimes) even makes a visit – that we thoroughly enjoyed – to the Duttons' enemy from the first season, Dan Jenkins (played by Danny Huston), to make his investigations. An exciting fistfight later, he leaves Jenkins' house without the answer he had expected. But that doesn't mean that he has given the matter rest. Kayce has now made this his prerogative – after all father dearest has made it amply clear that he wants Kayce next in line for the Yellowstone Ranch.
While the investigations are on, it is interspersed with some heartwarming moments that we have been hoping for since the second season started airing.
The fifth episode saw a reconciliation, if we may, between Kayce and Monica (played by Kelsey Asbille) – well, we had been rooting for them since the beginning. 'Blood the Boy' will see Kayce and John spend some quality time with Tate, Kayce's son and John's only grandson, and take him hunting.
Is this going to go down well with Monica, who at one point had said that she didn't want Tate anywhere near John because of just how evil he is? Has she made any sacrifices or compromises for this? What does it mean for Kayce and Monica who both have some reservations when it comes to family time with John Dutton.
In the last episode, we also see an extremely desperate Jamie (played by Wes Bentley) approach Beth for help – when will he learn because this is literally the worst way he can go about his mistakes. Beth drags him to their father, beating him up and shouting expletives.
At this point, we can be sure that Jamie has it coming. Not because he constantly messes things up, not just for himself but for others as well, but he legit doesn't know how to make amends. Get it together, Jamie!
Meanwhile, the really sad competition that Jimmy (played by Jefferson White) participated in last week is better this time around. How? It remains to be seen.
The sixth episode 'Blood the Boy' will premiere on Wednesday, July 31, 2019, at 10 pm ET/PT on Paramount Network.
