'Yellowstone' Season 4 returned with its third episode and it raised many questions. The Season 3 finale which left the fate of the Duttons in the hanging saw the Season 4 premiere confirm that all of them survived.

Season 4's premiere episodes confirmed Beth (Kelly Reilly), Kayce (Luke Grimes), John (Kevin Costner), Tate (Breckin Merrill) and Monica's ( Kelsey Asbille) survival. John along with Kayce vows to kill every one of those who tried to take out his family. The perpetrator behind the attacks remains unknown.

'Yellowstone' Season 4 Episode 3: Beth delivers brilliant lines, fans call it 'fire

Episode 3 started with a tantalizing opening where we see Kayce attack and kill many of the men who were behind the hits on the Dutton family as John is seen sitting in front of a fire with a melodious song playing. The contrast of the violence and peace made for quite an amazing opener as we see revenge exacted. Jimmy (Jefferson White) who's being sent away to a ranch in Texas is seen having trouble with his girlfriend Mia (Eden Brolin) as she questions his choice of not choosing her. He tells her the ranch and its people are the only family he has which hurts the woman who loves him. Looks like these two may not last for long. Suspense enters the episode as we see Mo (Mo Brings Plenty) have a beaten-up man tied in his shed. Humor too is brought in when Kayce in a hilariously cool manner locks up a ranch owner beneath a cattle grid and drives off after completing his duty as Cattle Commissioner.

The episode took a more personal route as we see Beth struggle with her new relationship with Carter (Finn Little) as she deals with being a potential mother figure in his life. This brought up old painful memories of her abortion as Rip (Cole Hauser) assures her that Carter will never be their son, no matter what. Kayce is dealing with the aftermath of the attack with Tate being traumatized after he and Monica were shot at which resulted in the young boy killing a man. Monica wants to move away from the ranch as Kayce struggles with his love for the ranch and what would be good for his family. Jimmy who leaves things unfinished with Mia sets off on his new journey with things already looking rough. The most interesting moment of the night came when Rainwater (Gil Birmingham) along with Mo, bring the unknown prisoner and tell him that he was the one who organized the attack. Although he organized it, turns out the one who ordered the hit is a man in prison who John doesn't know. The ending was very thrilling as we see John kill the man in an old-fashioned shootout as 'Caravan of Fools' by John Prine plays.
