As expected, the opening to season four of Yellowstonewas absolutely bonkers.
And now, we’re getting “behind the story” footage from the first episode, from the Paramount Network’s YouTube channel.
SPOILER ALERT… if you haven’t watched the Season 4 premiere yet… you might wanna turn back.
Here’s the brand new Season 4 just in case…
If you’re all caught up, keep scrolling.
As we know, Beth survived the bombing.
Kelly Reilly, who plays Beth on the show, went in-depth with the intense scene where she emerges from the blast:
“We see Beth survived, something that she should not have survived. She walks out from that building, burned, top to toe, and there’s some sort of omnipotent power, life force that she comes out of that building with.”
Luke Grimes, who plays Kayce, also discussed Kayce’s actions immediately after the attack on him, how he defended himself, and the went to hunt down the culprits:
“Kayce did what Kayce would probably do in that situation, think later. Destroy these guys first. That’s what we love about Kayce is that he has that sort of wild side, and it really gets to come out in that scene.
For me it was incredible to get to film something like that. It’s not something I get to do everyday.”
Kelsey Asbille, who plays Kayce’s wife Monica, also weighed in on her chaotic return to the show:
“We really started off with a bang. There’s such intensity to that, just equal amounts of chaos. Especially with Tate just really having to step up when it’s time to save his mother, that a boy should never have to do.”
Forrie J. Smith, who plays Lloyd, also explained how he felt during the attack on the Dutton Ranch:
“My heart was racing, them coming running out of that house. I come blowing up on a horse with a rifle.”
Ryan Bingham, who plays Walker, added:
“Everybody’s got a gun in their hand and everybody has somebody they’re about to kill. Ya know, right off the bat. It’s just another level.”
Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler) also weighed on finding out that his cabin was burned down and destroyed while he was rescuing John Dutton:
“It’s a really emotional moment, the cabin smoldering, just thinking about all of what he worked for.”
Kevin Costner (John Dutton) discussed John’s reaction to coming out of the hospital disoriented after he was shot multiple times:
“John has to play catchup. He’s lost weight, he’s in a hospital, and surrounded by strangers.”
Kelly Reilly also discussed how stressed Beth was in the scene, because she genuinely thought that her father’s life was over, but she’s shocked at the miracle that he survived.
Luke Grimes reflected on the fact that Kayce and John’s relationship kind of rekindles, but they have to focus on the next job at hand. But on the other hand, Beth and Jamie’s relationship goes even further down the shitter, as Beth truly believes that Jamie was behind the attacks.
Needless to say, it’s a miracle that anybody survived the attack at all, judging by the catastrophe the attacks created.
And the buildup for the rest of the season?
It’s through the roof.
And if you’re looking for the entire Yellowstone soundtrack, complete all through the first two episodes of Season 4, then look no further.
