'Yellowstone' Season 4 Episode 10 Review: Beth is the MVP in the season finale
Spoilers for 'Yellowstone' Season 4 Episode 10 'Grass on the Streets and Weeds on the Rooftops'
Monday night brought us the last episode of Season 4 of 'Yellowstone' and it was truly one for the books! The Kevin Costner drama covered a lot of bases in the tenth episode making for an explosive episode.
We previously saw John Dutton (Kevin Costner) tell Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) to leave after she sacrificed Summer Higgins (Piper Perabo) for her own agenda which was a blow to the daughter. Meanwhile, John remains oblivious to the true identity of who ordered the hit on his family with Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) still guarding the secret closely. Read on to know what went down in the Season finale of 'Yellowstone' and our thoughts on it.

'Yellowstone' Season 4 Episode 9 Review: A tale of cracks in Dutton family
The episode begins with Beth apologizing to John and saying that she will fight on his terms with him ensuring her that no matter he'll love her and this quick patch-up was a sweet moment. This was followed by a bitter-sweet scene when Carter (Finn Little) refers to Beth as Mama but she bitterly says she's not his mama and will never be a mom to anyone. But Beth can't be bothered for long and prepares for one final act before she becomes gentle again, which leaves Rip (Cole Hauser) worried when she drives off in her car.
While a lot of alternate plots like Jimmy's (Jefferson White) return with a fiance and Kayce's (Luke Grimes) suffering in the mountains were showcased, the episode belonged to Beth. The fierce woman was a force to be reckoned with as she single-handedly found out that Garrett Randall (Will Patton) was the true culprit and in a devious, cold but just manner had Jamie execute his own birth father. Kelly Reilly always shines in her role but tonight's episode was the icing on top. While she took care of business for John without his knowledge she once again proved she's his greatest weapon and should be appreciated more than she is. The boss lady also managed to get a happy ending when she married her love Rip in an impromptu wedding making for complete, wholesome goodness. An emotional rollercoaster the finale had us hooked from start till end.
We also saw Jimmy leave for Texas and Kayce come out as a changed man after his experience. Although John doesn't know the details, in an emotional moment he wonders if he lost Jamie but Beth assures him that he didn't but now he owns him. The finale ends with the troubled father going for a ride alongside Carter as life has to go on. Filled with love, death, goodbyes and good lucks the Season finale was well-rounded and perfect making the wait for Season 5 even more painful.
'Yellowstone' Season 4 is available to stream on the Paramount Network app and on Amazon Prime Video.
