‘Yellowstone’ Season 4 has been all about revenge for the Duttons and they know exactly how to take it. However, in recent episodes, the show takes a different route. It focuses on how Yellowstone is being eyed by some big corporations. John Dutton (Kevin Costner) and Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) could soon have a showdown.

Earlier, we saw Jamie prepare to take over as the official candidate for the post of Governor. However, the incumbent governor shocked everyone when she revealed that she’ll be endorsing John for the position. As soon as the decision is announced, the chasm between Jamie and John grows wider. The latest episode shows Jamie thinking of how to get even and his dad and wife are supporting him in that. They believe that John has done this so that Jamie doesn’t get to that position.

'Yellowstone' Season 4 Episode 7 Review: Beginning of the end for Duttons and Jamie

During the final few minutes of the episode, Jamie calls John and says that he wants to meet. John asks why? to which, Jamie replies that he wants to talk about something and wants some matters to end. John calls him to the ranch, but Jamie refuses and says that he wants to meet somewhere neutral. John tells him that the ranch is neutral and if he wants to meet him, then he knows where to find him.

John, along with Rip (Cole Hauser), reaches a diner where there is a hostage situation. John and Rip take their guns out as John enters the diner from behind. One of their police officers is sitting inside the diner and waiting for the orders to take down the bad guys. John comes in from behind and shoots one of them. A gunfight takes place between police and the bad guys. One of the police officers, Sheriff Donnie Haskell (Hugh Dillon), shoots two people at the diner.

One of the villains are using a woman as a human shield, but Rip shoots him on his feet and John shoots him on the chest. The episode ends on a tragic note when they find that Sheriff Haskell is shot and may not make it. He calls his daughter and tries talking to her. She says she’s busy and will call him later, but Haskell tells her that he might not be able to hear her voice ever again. He dies while talking to his daughter and John had to be the bearer of the bad news to his daughter.

John has lost an important ally in his journey to find the truth. Haskell has been one of the closest allies of the Duttons and always helped them out whenever they were in trouble. We believe, this loss will take John some time to forget.

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