'Yellowstone' Season 3: Will John Dutton find love? 5 things we'd like to see happen on the Paramount show
Packed with spectacular cinematography and a stellar cast, the characters are expected to bring the big guns out in Season 3
Blending heartbreak, loss, tragedy, family conflicts and politics together, 'Yellowstone' soon became one of the most-watched cable series in the summer of 2019. John Dutton's (Kevin Costner) world was shaken up after his grandson Tate (Brecken Merrill) was kidnapped. The dramatic undercurrents in the series ended with a threat that led to huge consequences and it may follow suit in the upcoming 10 episodes.
Packed with spectacular cinematography and a stellar cast, the characters are expected to bring the big guns out in Season 3. The cast and crew have teased that the new season will be "colossal" and "unpredictable" but the question is what will really happen and will it change the Dutton clan? From John's love life to Jaime Dutton (Wes Bentley) and Beth Dutton's (Kelly Reilly) hatred, there's a lot to look forward to. Here are five things we would like to see on the show.
Will John Dutton find love?
John has been alone ever since his wife (Gretchen Mol) died and she was the only love of his life. In the first two seasons, John tried to find love elsewhere but failed. He was in a relationship with Montana Governor Lynelle Perry (Wendy Moniz), whom he knew since they were growing up together. However, he could never fully commit to her. In Season 3, will John allow himself to be free and fall in love again before the cancer threat or a political gambit takes his life? The real question is, does he have time for love? The way the show has been going until now, perhaps family conflicts take up his entire time and he will die saving his ranch that has been the closest to his heart since his wife's death.
Why does Beth hate Jaime, will she kill his love or future kid?
Beth and Jaime's rivalry has been strong since the very first season and fans have been wondering what is the reason behind it. In one of the episodes, she tells him that she cannot wait for him to find something he truly loves so that she can then snatch it away from him. She won't let him be happy or even hopeful as long as she is alive. Fans are wondering what will she do to take revenge. One said, "I think Beth will kill Jaime's future kid. Who knows if Christina was telling the truth to Jamie that day in the coffee shop since she is pretty damn shady herself (who isn't on this show though?)..... but Beth will make Jaime 'lose' something he 'loves'." Or perhaps, Beth may finally forgive Jaime for whatever he did in the past and reconcile.
Will Roarke lead to the downfall of the Dutton ranch?
This season, Josh Holloway will make his entry as Roarke Carter. The character is billed to be a "charming, shaggy-haired hedge fund manager with ambitious plans in Montana" who first meets Beth while trespassing the land. After the Dutton family fought their enemies, the Beck brothers, Dan Jenkins (Danny Huston) and Chief Thomas Rainwater (Gil Birmingham), will Roarke present a new problem with his wish to build an airport on their land?
The series may show how he manipulates the family and slowly betray them behind their backs. After Tate's kidnapping case, the family is in a state of shock and he could easily take advantage of that to win the battle. "He’s like the velvet steamroller, if you will. He is progress incarnate. You just can’t stop Roarke," Holloway said in a TVLine interview, adding, "This is the first time they’ve come into contact with someone who can actually use the city government to (his advantage). This is the real deal." Moreover, the show could lead to a love triangle between Roarke-Beth-Rip and will definitely make everything messy. One fan said: "Can’t wait! Josh Holloway is tempting — he looks more like Kevin Costner offspring than any of the Dutton boys."
Rip and Beth's love story
Hard-core fans have one big wish — to see Rip and Beth end up together. At the end of the second season, one question reverberates through our minds: Will Rip and Beth end up with each other? The answer is not easy. Their relationship has been a hurly-burly of sorts and perhaps, that will move along as it has been — chaos and beauty intertwined.
Fans want them to end up together in the future. "Aww talk about a long history + a heartbreaking relationship from the get-go," one said and another posted, "Well, #Yellowstone just keeps getting better and better each week. Beth and Rip are adorable." One even wondered if Roarke's entry would pose problems in their relationship. "Their relationship has changed and isn't as casual as it once was. From what's suggested in the Season 3 video, it would appear they're still together, too, so I'd assume they'd continue to grow closer. It doesn't mean it still won't happen, but it's less likely that if it does, Rip's reaction will be exactly the same it was previously."
Will Tate become the tough cowboy and make his parents Kayce and Monica stay?
After the kidnapping, one of the biggest questions is: Will Tate ever get over the trauma? The ending of the last season left both Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) and Monica Dutton Long (Kelsey Asbille) in a state of shock. It also shook John's entire world as he has been incredibly close to his grandson. Their bond is endearing for fans. "Tate is really adorable! He's really good actor for his age," one fan said and another one posted, "When @Yellowstone patriarch John Dutton jumped in the river to rescue Tate — without hesitation — my fave. That’s a father-grandfather’s love and sacrifice in a real time of need. #Yellowstone." Will the kidnapping incident scar Tate's life or toughen him up? One fan wondered: "I wonder if Lucky will be trained as a therapy horse for Tate who was obviously traumatized. Great way to show the need for & benefits of equestrian therapy. #Yellowstone."
