'Yellowstone' Season 3 Episode 6: Will John forgive Jamie after knowing the truth behind Beth's hysterectomy?
Spoilers for 'Yellowstone' Season 3 Episode 6: 'All For Nothing'
In the previous episode of the hit Paramount show, we finally found out the truth about what happened between Beth (Kelly Reilly) and Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) all those years ago. After dragging it along for three seasons, leading to hundreds of speculations from the fans, 'Yellowstone' revealed that it was a particular betrayal that left a rift between the two that could never be bridged.
As a teenager, Beth was pregnant with Rip's (Cole Hauser) child. Desperate and gripped with fear, she turns to Jamie for help. Jamie takes her to the clinic on the reservation, where he is warned that abortion means sterilization. Despite that, he goes ahead with it and doesn't tell Beth what he is getting her into. Years later, when Beth wants to have children, she is instead confronted with the reality of what really happened.
All these years, the Dutton family never addressed the elephant in the room, but in Season 3, they are all going gung-ho. Early on in the episode, Beth tells Jamie how and why she really despises her brother. She slowly deconstructs Jamie and tells him exactly what is wrong with him, his perspective of the world, and his distinction between right and wrong. Although Jamie wanted to help all those years ago, he took a decision for Beth without her consent. Jamie rebuffs her by telling her that it was Beth who came to him seeking help. As her elder brother, all he did was protect her and the family's reputation. Going to an abortion clinic would have maligned not only Beth's present and her future but also the Dutton name. But Beth is going to have none of it and tells him that she came to him for help, not for a hysterectomy.
On top of that, he continues to think that the pain his help had caused was her fault, not his. He believes that Beth is at fault for blaming him all these years, as it was not him who had placed her in that situation. That, she tells him, is what truly makes him evil and nothing else.
It is evident now that Beth doesn't wish to just leave this unaddressed. Later in the episode, she talks to her father John Dutton (Kevin Costner) about why Jamie shouldn't be handling the Roarke Morris (Josh Holloway) crisis. John then blatantly asks her what is it about Jamie that she knows and doesn't.
When Beth does finally tell John after all these years, he is livid. He wants to beat Jamie to pulp, but his son keeps trying to run away from him. John is in disbelief to know that Jamie would do something like this and a graver reality dawns upon him -- he has lost another grandchild.
'Yellowstone' airs on Sundays at 9 pm ET/ PT on Paramount Network.
