‘Yellowstone’ Season 3 Episode 7 Preview: If Jamie turns out to be adopted, will he betray the Dutton family?
For a long time now, fans have speculated that Jamie Dutton is adopted. Could that secret come out in the open?
Paramount's ‘Yellowstone’ seems to be heading towards uncharted waters. Last episode, Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) revealed the big secret of her hysterectomy to John Dutton (Kevin Costner) and that led to a major feud between John and Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley). Moreover, the fact that Roarke Morris (Josh Holloway) is coming for John's land is stressed upon in every episode and may lead up to the big fight in the finale.
In a new midseason trailer, there is much rivalry and riot. "There's an arms race going on in this valley. The weapon is land," Jamie says in the first scene. In another cut, John then says, "That land is mine. Nobody can sell it but me." And then he tells Roarke: "You think you are winning this game? You don't even know the goddamn rules."
No sooner did the trailer drop, there was a barrage of comments on Roarke's intentions. One fan said, "Funny how Roarke has to bring in the bigger guns for the job he was sent to do lololol." The debate didn't end there. "John Dutton will eat Roarke Morris for breakfast," one said and another posted, "Only four episodes left they try to take John land away for him and you cannot mess with a cowboy with his family and his land he is going to fight to the end that is a cowboy way."
However, the most shocking part of the trailer was when Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) fires a bullet. Later, in the trailer, he says, "I'm always in the position to kill or be killed." Will someone be dead in the next episode? "Who is Kayce hitting with the shovel after lasso his neck to stop driving his truck? Can't tell if it's Ryan it sort of looks like him," one tweet read.
Titled 'The Beating', the official summary of Episode 7 reads: "Jamie has a major revelation; Beth makes plans for her future; Jimmy meets a rodeo legend; Rip's patience is tested." After the last episode, many also wondered who was the weakest link in the family. "Is Jamie the weak link @Yellowstone or is it Beth? Or is it #johndutton. Let me know what you think. I’m curious."
"Beth still raging over a decision 30 years ago she left in a scared brother's hands. John withholding love because of his wife’s untimely death. Jamie seeking love and approval and can’t get either... Casey is their only hope," one fan said and another posted, "Jamie & Beth both would sell that land in a heartbeat if Daddy Dutton were to die." Another said, "Jamie by far. Not sure he has ever done anything to actually help the family."
Another said, "Jamie because he doesn't make wise choices. With Beth as teenagers, he should have told her what would happen and let her decide but he chose for her. He is so desperate to be a strong leader that he doesn't think through his decisions." For a long time now, fans have speculated that Jamie is adopted. Could that secret come out in the open? Well, perhaps, that could be the new revelation this time around. The biggest takeaway is that if he turns out to be adopted, he may have a motive
"Jamie could be the weak link and he is in a position of power now. He could easily go against the family out of anger just like he did before. If he betrays them, I think someone will make him pay for it..dearly. Train Station anyone?" one fan said and another posted, "Jaime. He sells his soul for his idea of success, achievement, and what he considers acceptance (love). He doesn't care who he hurts in the process."
