Who could have imagined that explosive ending in the ‘Yellowstone’ finale? In ‘The World is Purple’, three main members of the family — John Dutton (Kevin Costner), Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) and Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) — were brutally attacked. While most fans are wondering whether John will survive that bullet shot and who really shot him, Rip Wheeler's (Cole Hauser) future seems to be in question too. 

At the end of the episode, tried to look for everyone but couldn't get in touch with John, Kayce, or Beth. He then called Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) who simply rebuffed him saying, “I don’t think you should call me anymore.” The most heartbreaking moment, perhaps, was when Rip spotted a dying horse and said: “I’d rather kill a thousand men than shoot another horse.”

Connecting it to how Rip gave Beth the wedding ring that his mom had, there seems to be much talk about how it was ominous. The official account of Yellowstone posted, "Rip going to see his mom to tell her about Beth is more than our emotions can handle. #YellowstoneTV." After that emotional scene, won't it be heartbreaking if he loses Beth in the next season?



 

One fan said, "I wouldn’t want that ring, not just because he took off a corpse, but also because it represents a marriage that ended in murder!" Another posted, "NO! This is too Stephen King-like. No woman wants a ring off a corpse!!!" One even went on to say: "And on that note, is that a ring that his father gave his mother? The father that killed his mother? That he in turn killed? So why THAT ring? I don't get the sentiment...it has to be from someone else..."



 

 



 

 



 

 

After watching the last scene, fans couldn't keep their calm. "O-M-G!!!!! Are you KIDDING ME @Yellowstone?????? Y'all are really gonna make us wait until NEXT SUMMER to find out whether or not Beth survived the bomb's shrapnel?????!?!?!?" one tweet read. Another read: "I hope she made it but I don’t think so that’s why they showed Rip scene with his mom." One fan went on to post: "God help Montana if anything happened to Beth #Yellowstone."



 

 



 

 



 

Moreover, if Rip ends up losing Beth, there's a strong chance he would go after Jamie who betrayed the family at the last moment. So will Rip kill him in Season 4?

Fans feel Rip would come for Jamie. "I think Jamie would hurt Kayce just to prove a point. I have never liked Jamie and always felt he was weird and selfish. He did this... maybe not alone but he did this!! Hell is coming for Jamie and RIP is coming with..." one tweet read and another said, "There may be contracts ending...Rip vs Jamie in season 4!" Another viewer said, "Rip's Revenge should be the title of the next Season opener. I hope Jamie and Rourke get to ride the train together. "

Contradicting that chain of thought, one said, "But Jaime would have made sure that Rip was killed, too. He would not have let that go, because he knows Rip and Kayce will come after him if they're alive. And is that how Jaime would react if he just found out Rip is alive and not supposed to be?" Another posted, "Jamie’s pop was in prison so he has plenty of connections. That van that rolled up on JD was a junker, which tells me it wasn’t Willa/Roarke. They would hire professionals. And Jamie showed no concern when Rip called him. It was Jamie. He’s bitter and only cares about himself."
