'Yellowstone' Season 3 Episode 9: How will Beth Dutton avenge Willa Hayes for being fired from Schwartz & Meyer?
With just one more episode to go, the excitement is on a whole new level and 'Yellowstone' fans can't stop wondering if Beth will make Willa regret her decision
It's never a good idea to play a battle of wits against Beth Dutton. Played by Kelly Reilly, the character is perhaps one of the most badass women on TV. Fiery and ferocious, Beth is not only sharp, clever, loyal and quick-witted but is also a master manipulator. She works for Schwartz & Meyer and runs Mergers and Acquisitions for the company.
In the third season of ‘Yellowstone’, Beth has been trying to outrun Roarke Morris (Josh Holloway), whose Market Equities backs the wicked real-estate developers and the CEO Willa Hayes, played by Karen Pittman, is not too pleased with the result. Irritated that the Duttons have been blocking her deal, she watches in shock how Beth cleverly manages to jack up the prices of the stocks. Surprised at how smoothly Beth gnaws away at her company's stocks, Willa chalks out a plan and says once Beth is fired from Schwartz & Meyers, they should hire her at Market Equities. In ‘Meaner Than Evil’, her plan comes to fruition when Beth walks into her office with her usual swagger only to see Willa seated at her desk.
Astonished to see her sitting at her place, Beth walks three steps and flings her bag off her shoulder onto a nearby chair. She points to her and says, "That's my desk." Cool as a cucumber, Willa retorts, "Not anymore... it's my desk now, my computer, my office furniture, my office." Beth looks around and realizes everything about the place seems to have changed."
Just then, Willa says: "What's that saying cowboys use? F**k with the bull and you get the horns. Well, you f***ed with the bull." Beth is shocked and stirred but she doesn't say a word. "B***h, you practice saying that in front of the mirror," Beth tells Willa. Unbothered by that remark, Willa says: "For an hour... I prepare for everything. I anticipate every possible outcome and I would've expected the same from you but if you had given me this any thought you would have known that every possible outcome leads to me, sitting right here."
Beth then tells her: "...the outcome has already been decided. The only thing left to do is to kill as much as you can before they kill you." Willa responds: "I really respect that. You surely got your kills," and adds, "But now, as a result, my shareholders are the majority owners of Schwartz & Meyers and you, you're fired." Not just that, Willa makes an offer to Beth, saying, "So thank you for all that land around your father's ranch. We have big plans for this valley. And after this thing ends, you should give me a call. You could do very well working for me."
Beth, however, is all set to lock horns. "When all this is over, I'm gonna hang your diploma above my toilet in my guest house. You have my word," she promises her. Trying to neutralize the atmosphere, Willa says, "Like I said you gotta sting fade. Then we'll talk." Beth says, "The sting never fades with me. It is a painful lesson and one you're about to learn..." and walks away. Without wasting a heartbeat, Willa points to the door and says, "Really like her!"
Clearly, Willa admires Beth even though they are at loggerheads with each other. But, it may not be the same from Beth's side. After being fired from her job, Beth may think of a bonanza plan to outdo Willa. The question is how will she take revenge? With just one more episode to go, the excitement is on a whole new level. Fans can't stop wondering if Beth will make Willa regret her decision and most can't stop recalling the scene when she told Roarke: "You are the trailer park, I am the tornado."
"I wouldn’t miss watching these two amazing ladies for the world. A showdown at the #Yellowstone OK Coral, between Willa and Beth. My money is on the Tornado, to blow the trailer park, of the Dutton land," one tweet read and another said, "Ready to watch Beth do badass Beth Dutton things next week!!!"
