Slowly and steadily ‘Yellowstone’ Season 4 is inching toward its conclusion and things are getting intense as we head for a final showdown between John Dutton (Kevin Costner) and Jamie (Wes Bentley). John has taken away the thing that Jamie wanted to achieve and it seems that Jamie won’t let that go easily.

In the latest episode, Jamie has given a glimpse of how he wants to take things forward. He calls up John for a meeting and wants to meet at a neutral venue. However, John wants Jamie to come to the ranch and have a discussion. Prior to that, Jamie’s wife and his biological father supported him in taking revenge for what John has done to him. Now, it seems Jamie is quite interested in doing something diabolical this time around.

However, Jamie might meet John and help him get to the person who attempted to kill the patriarch. Jamie is really fragile at this moment, but he would want to help John because he knows how Jamie's biological father tried killing him in Season 3. But it will be interesting to see how Jamie responds to this entire situation. Either he goes all guns blazing and tries taking down John with him or he could help the Duttons in getting what they deserve: redemption.

On the other hand, Beth is sneakily trying to take down the organization that she works for. She knows that her family and a lot of people will lose everything if Yellowstone is turned into a commercial hub. So, she keeps on tackling the protests in her own manner, giving leads to one of the protesters, Summer Higgins (Piper Perabo). But things went on to the next level as police arrested 117 people from the protest site and took them in custody. The matter has escalated to the media and it seems people are not liking what’s happening to their town.

Although, there’s one thing that might be an issue here and this is something that Paramount should definitely work on. There were too many commercials during the episode and this might put off fans in a big manner. The flow of the episode was definitely not as smooth as it was in earlier episodes and this is a problem. 

A strong episode pulled down by a lot of commercials and ‘1883’ stuff.

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