Spoilers for 'Yellowstone' Season 4, Episode 4- 'Winning or Learning'
'Yellowstone's Season 4 has been absolutely banging as we saw all the Duttons safely survive the attacks. Extremely cool action sequences and mysteries have already begun to unravel as the show progresses.
An important question that arose from the attacks is the identity of the attacker. The Duttons are no strangers to making enemies but the attempted killing of the whole family crossed a major line with John (Kevin Costner)hell-bent on revenge. A potential clue may just have led them to the man they're looking for. Read on to know what went down in the episode and what we thought of it.

The fourth episode of the season began with quite a fun opening with lively music paired with the ever enjoyable horse tricks. The episode immediately moves into a more serious tone as John shows Kayce (Luke Grimes) the man who organized the hits on their entire family. The head of the family wants to confirm his suspicions about Jamie (Wes Bentley) being the one who ordered the attacks and asks Kayce to go to him.
Beth (Kelly Reilly) as usual was quite the badass as she makes an unreasonable business demand with the agenda to take down Schwartz and Meyer. New cast addition Jacki Weaver as Market Equities CEO, Caroline Warner was brilliant with her appearing as a potential match for Beth's methods. We also saw the long-delayed meeting of brothers Jamie and Kayce, where Jamie appears to have had nothing to do with the attacks and has instead been helping the family on the down-low. Looks like Beth was wrong about her adoptive brother after all. He instead is recruited to help find the man who ordered the attack as John's test of trust has a positive response.
Coming to Kayce, seeing his son and wife who have been traumatized after the attack finally leads him to suggest a short break from the ranch which Monica (Kelsey Asbille) joyfully thanks him for. But is this break temporary or permanent? After all their home doesn't feel safe to them anymore. We will have to wait and watch as this could also be a potential exit. Beth who's normally edgy was also funny in this episode as a conversation with John leads the daughter to come to the conclusion that her father needs to get some action in bed. As John looks on baffled she promises she'll find him a girlfriend soon. Their man-to-man conversations are definitely something to look forward to. Jimmy's (Jefferson White) new beginning is also something to look forward to as he finally reaches his destination.
But the best part of the episode came at the end when in quite a stunning revelation Jamie finds out that his birth father Garrett Randall (Will Patton) was acquaintances in prison with the man who was hired to assassinate his family. Jamie who's been spending time with his biological father may have to make a tough choice. Is Randall truly behind the assassination? Will Jamie expose him or will he protect him? An intriguing family-centered episode that cleared a doubt while raising a big one, we eagerly look forward to the next episode.
