'Yellowstone' Season 3 Episode 3: Jamie is acting like 'a real Dutton', say fans after watching his expert move
Spoilers for 'Yellowstone' Season 3 Episode 3 titled 'An Acceptable Surrender'
Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) has made one too many (grave) mistakes in his life. Not all of them could have been brushed under the rug, but more often than not, the Dutton family did it, no matter what the possible consequences - to protect their own. In Season 3 Episode 3, it is Jamie's turn to return the favor to his family.
Livestock Agent Steve Hendon (James Jordan) is in jail following the deaths of the two perpetrators who were practically killed by him in the back of his trailer. Before this matter reaches John Dutton (Kevin Costner) or the state authorities, Jamie must ensure that the problem is taken care of. And he does - rather expertly, might we add. We wrote a detailed account of how Jamie took care of the problem in the most Dutton way possible.
For the first time ever, fans of the show, who had cursed Bentley's character through the run of the three seasons, are impressed by him.
"Well played Jamie, well played!" tweeted a viewer. "Shit. Jamie. Well played. WELL PLAYED," concurred another. "Actually impressed with Jamie...finally finding his balls!" tweeted another viewer. "Jamie grew some nuts! #YellowstoneTV #JamieDutton #coverup" added another. "Oh wow Jamie is smart! I'm starting to like him!" said a viewer.
There have been several instances in the past where the audience had prompted John to banish Jamie from the ranch and his family following his (bad) decisions. But now, not so much."Jamie is starting to act like a real Dutton," tweeted a fan. "Glad to see Jamie finally step up for the family," added another.
"“A man who puts a hand on a member of my family never puts a hand on anything else,” I think that's my favourite thing Jamie has said @Yellowstone #YellowstoneTV" added a fan.
But even though Jamie learned to play the game real quick, nothing on 'Yellowstone' comes easy. And so, many viewers expect this "expert" maneuver to come back to haunt Jamie. "Why do I see this coming back to bite Jamie?" wondered a viewer. "I said the same thing....Jamie never learns," another added.
'Yellowstone' airs on Mondays at 9 pm ET/ PT on Paramount.
