‘Yellowstone’ Season 3 Episode 3 Preview: Can Jamie save Livestock agent Hendon and rectify the ghastly mistake?
‘Yellowstone’ delves deep into the dark secrets of Dutton ranch and the last episode saw how Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) assumed his responsibilities as the Livestock Commissioner and a matter in Sweet Grass County needed his attention.
Two hooligans stole the rigs of two women who were just loading up their horses. To tackle the issue, Jamie sent Livestock agent Steve Hendon (James Jordan). Hendon handcuffed the men and wildly drove them in the truck as they kept falling from one side to another. While his motive was to teach them a lesson, it led to a major problem when the trailer was unlocked and the two men were found battered and dead. Hendon's call gave him a rude awakening. At the end of the last episode, Jamie had no clue about how to rectify the mistake.
Will Hendon have to bear the consequences of his crime or can Jamie help him out? What will happen now? Titled ‘An Acceptable Surrender’, the new episode might leave Jamie in a fix. When he took up the job, he promised his father that this time things will be different. He said, "You have my word." John Dutton (Kevin Costner) curtly replied that they are about to find out what it is worth. However, things already seem to be headed down a rocky path.
The official summary reads: "Jamie plays cover-up and damage control with Hendon; Governor Perry hears a $6 billion pitch for development right on the Yellowstone, and later makes some political maneuvers; Jimmy competes in a rodeo competition."
Going by the synopsis, can we expect Jamie to handle things better this time and get Hendon out of this mess? "Jamie screwed up big time #Yellowstone," one fan said after watching the second episode. Another posted, "Have fun with that, Jamie..yikes." Another fan wrote: "Do you really know what he means Jamie?"
Expecting some big drama, one fan said, "OK so @Yellowstone has been “slow” through the first two episodes but hang on to your seats....they’re just setting us up for some HUGE DRAMA!!!!" Another said, "The agent didn’t know anyone was back there. The swerving and stuff was because he saw a deer or a squirrel." Many fans want the makers to be soft on Jamie this season. "The cop screwed up. I know it’s going to come back on Jaime but I don’t think it’s his fault. Feel so bad for him. Really rioting for him this season. Ugh! Good season so far!" one tweet read and another said, "Last season he also became a murderer when he killed the reporter. Jamie is a bad seed. John is not going to forgive him this time!"
The new episode of ‘Yellowstone’ rolls out at 9 pm ET on Paramount Network.
