'Yellowstone' Season 4 Episode 6: Randall DID order the hit, says he'll try again
Season 4 of 'Yellowstone' has been steadily building towards the big reveal as to who ordered the killing of the Dutton family with us almost at the endpoint of finding out. Chief Rainwater (Gil Birmingham) gave John (Kevin Costner) an essential clue which led him to ask Jamie for help, paired with the intention of testing his loyalty.
Episode 5 of 'Yellowstone' saw Jamie (Wes Bentley) pay a visit to the man in prison who organized the attack on the Duttons and finally unearth the mystery of the instigator which heavily hinted at it being his birth father Garrett Randall (Will Patton). We were left wondering about this fact as Jamie was surprisingly met by his on-again-off-again girlfriend who brought along his baby son when he went to confront Randall. Tonight's episode gave us the clarity needed, so read on to know what exactly happened.
We previously were left hanging after we saw Jamie find out the person behind the attacks on his family. His visit to confront Garrett Randall about his involvement was left unfinished but tonight's episode gave us the answer we've been waiting for. The sixth episode saw Jamie approach Randall from behind with him pointing a gun at his real dad. Randall doesn't comply with Jamie and calmly turns around and talks to his son saying that if he killed him, it would be murder. When Jamie retorts that he tried to kill his family, Randall says that he's his family and his new baby and girlfriend is his family, not the Duttons, and asks if he'll truly miss them if they're gone, even bringing up Beth (Kelly Reilly) who he hates. Jamie says he'll miss his brother and asks about right or wrong.
Randall answers that there is no such thing as right or wrong, or immoral or unfair saying John just used him like the others so no one could take back what he stole. He goes on to say that he has no agenda but to give Jamie the family he never had and the legacy that was stolen from him. Continuing angrily he admits to ordering the hit saying, "Did I try to kill him? You're goddamn right I did! And I'll keep trying until I get it right, that how much I love you!". As Jamie breaks down crying and hugs his birth father, Randall takes away the gun from him and embraces his son.
Despite just having admitted to attempting murder the sly man sweet-talked his way out and emotionally manipulated the son who craves love and acknowledgment. Looks like Jamie is properly stuck in his honey trap and we're left to wonder if he'll keep this new fact to himself and protect Randall or come clean to his family. For now, it looks like Randall has Jamie right where he wants him, with the son entwined in his sticky fingers.
‘Yellowstone’ Season 4 returns to Paramount with a new episode every Sunday at 8 pm EST.
