I mean seriously, we knew that marriage was inevitable for the two, but it completely came out of left field.
Granted, Beth was looking to murder someone, so might be nice to get the marriage outta the way before you get locked up for good, but hey, Beth is one of a kind. I mean, nothing in Rip and Beth’s lives has ever been done by the rules, so it couldn’t have been more fitting.
Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler) and Kelly Reilly (Beth Dutton) recently sat down for an interview with ET, and the two discussed the unorthodox wedding.
Hauser kicked things off by saying:
“I mean the way it went down was pretty wild. Her storming in and her gold dress, her dad [Kevin Costner as John Dutton] and I looking at her and going, ‘What in the hell is she up to now?’ Then she has a priest that she’s kidnapped. It’s pretty wild.”
Hauser even admitted that even though they were acting the part, the whole thing felt wild to them:
“Even as an actor we’re sitting there and we’re trying to put all the things together and connect all the dots and you’re like, ‘This is fucking crazy,’ you know what I mean?
It all comes together and there’s actually this beautiful moment there. I thought it was pretty touching in the end.”
Reilly also adds that the wedding turned out exactly how Beth intended:
“I love their wedding, and it’s just so typical Beth. She’s just not interested in having a wedding party or a wedding dress or any of that. All she cares about is being his wife and she knows that… I kind of find her slightly heroic in a really messed up way.
It’s just perfect. “It’s the perfect wedding. When I read that, it made me laugh because I knew we were gonna get married this season, but I didn’t know how.”
Ain’t exactly how you draw it up, but hey, sometimes you gotta kidnap a priest, am I right?
