Season 4 of 'Yellowstone' began as we saw the repercussions of the deadly attacks on the Duttons. Thankfully all of the family members survived with John (Kevin Costner) and Kayce(Luke Grimes) vowing to take revenge on their enemies.

We saw Kayce along with his troop murder many of the men who attacked his family as he dished out revenge. But the identity of the person who ordered these attacks still remains a mystery. Thomas Rainwater and Mo (Moses Brings Plenty) gave John a clue that may just lead them to the answer. The fourth episode brought to light a suspect and we could be looking at our killer. Read on to know what went down and who may have ordered the killings.

The episode started with John showing Kayce pictures of the man who was hired to assassinate their family with the son being informed that his dad too, has no clue about the identity of the mystery man. Beth(Kelly Reilly) who is sure Jamie(Wes Bentley) is behind it all had suggested this to John as well, but Kayce doesn't believe Jamie would do such a thing. John however still wants to confirm his suspicions and asks Kayce to meet with Jamie and ask for his help. He tells him that if Jamie stalls or doesn't help, then he'll know the answer.

Kayce pays a visit to his adoptive brother and the two talk for the first time after the attacks. When asked about his distance from the family, Jamie reveals he has been helping the Duttons by covering up for their crimes and that meeting anyone of them would be collusion. Kayce shows the document of the unknown man to Jamie and tells him that he's the one behind the attacks. He further tells him that John who trusts him wants his help in digging into the man and that he would like for Jamie to be their attorney. Jamie looks touched by this request coming from his adoptive father and agrees to help them.

The end of the episode saw Jamie going through the mystery man's prison records. But what came next was shocking as he sees his birth father Garett Randall's name in the cellmate history. His birth father who was in prison for the murder of his wife has a history with the man who came for the Duttons. Is he behind it all? It certainly looks like it. Jamie looks as stunned as we feel, with the episode ending on the cliffhanger with him saying, "Oh my god". 

Now Jamie is loyal to the Dutton family but has also connected with his birth father with whom he regularly interacts. The question that we are left with is will he help the Duttons or will he safeguard his biological father? Both decisions have repercussions for Jamie with two sides to choose from, each with a heavy consequence. 

‘Yellowstone’ Season 4 returns to Paramount Channel with a new episode every Sunday at 8 pm EST.
