Spoilers for 'Yellowstone' Season 4 Episode 2 'Phantom Pain'

Paramount Network just had its much-awaited Season 4 premiere of 'Yellowstone' and it couldn't have been any better! The finale of Season 3 left everyone in the lurch as the survival of the Dutton family was left as a major cliffhanger. 

One of the leads Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) thankfully survived the bomb explosion in her office and returned to her lover Rip Wheeler(Cole Hauser). Rip and Beth have had a complicated relationship over the seasons but are now committed to each other. The two are currently in a happy space and their relationship may get even better, with a surprising new addition. Read on to know what happened in the episode and what fans thought of it.


‘Yellowstone’ Season 3 Episode 9: Is Walker a snitch or can Rip trust him, why did Laramie wink at him?

‘Yellowstone’ Season 3 Finale: Is John Dutton dead, but who shot him? Fans think Jamie's real father is behind it

In the first episode of 'Yellowstone' Season 4, we saw Beth in the hospital recovering from the bomb explosion. There she runs into a young boy outside whose father died in the same hospital. Episode 2 saw a police officer outside Beth's home with the same kid in the car who lied that Beth is his guardian. Although hesitant at first, she takes him home to Rip and says he's just like him. Rip isn't having this as he then catches the kid trying to rob the cars in the ranch. He lets the kid named Carter stay the night and drop him off in town the next day. The troubled kid gets on his nerves and is kicked out in the middle of the road, but Rip comes back for him. The episode saw him give Carter work on the ranch as he tells John that Carter's just like him. Beth too loves that the kid is here.

Rip softens up and looks out for Carter and the new family dynamic got fans extremely happy for the trio. All three of them have troubled personalities and their coming together got fans' hearts warm. This is how they reacted.

A fan commented, "Me when Rip acts like a dad... @Yellowstone#yellowstonetv". One of the tweets read, "Under that big, bad exterior he's got this softie, heart. Need me a Rip #YellowstoneTV". Another viewer commented, "Rip, Beth and this kid, the cutest broken and dysfunctional family #Yellowstonetv ".

A fan said, "Beth and Rip taking Carter and becoming a family #YellowstoneTV". One of the tweets read, " I knew Rip wasn’t going to leave him.. like looking in the mirror. #YellowstoneTV". Another viewer commented, "@YellowstoneOMG...I frickin love this! Pay it forward, Rip!! He's going to do for him what John did when Rip was in a similar situation. Not to mention, the boy kinda resembles a young Rip. That's what got Beth's attention in the first place! #TeamRip #YellowstoneTV".
