It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve seen this, but by God I’m about ready to start Yellowstoneall over again.
The show just gave us a look back in time all the way back to 2018 when the show first aired, projecting the first five minutes of season one, and the last five.
How could we forget about the wild opening scene, when John Dutton (Kevin Costner) was intentionally hit by a semi-truck sent out by Paradise Valley (Paradise Valley, AKA the place where the Native American elder Spottled Eagle tells Tim McGraw settle in the 1883finale) while he was driving his tractor trailer.
It was a miracle he survived that wreck, and he had to put the horse down that was injured in the process.
The video then transitions to the last five minutes, when Rip (Cole Hauser) is questioning Dan Jenkins while he has a noose around his neck, interrogating him about if John’s wreck was an accident or not (it wasn’t).
Dan tells Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) that his father will either lose the ranch, or sell it (foreshadowing a choice he still has to make five seasons later).
It also shows John and Beth sitting alone at their massive dinner table, with Beth crying at the sight it’s only them two sitting there, and it rounds out with John having a conversation with Beth about why they do what they do.
When John tells her it’s not about the people at the table, it’s about the table itself, Beth replies that it’s the first thing she’s gonna sell when he’s gone (also foreshadowing the struggle they would continue to face for the next five seasons).
Now that 1883 has ended, and 1932 is coming up next, along with the two-part Yellowstone Season 5, seems like now is the perfect time to start watching from the beginning… again.
Yellowstone’s Top 10 Bunkhouse Moments Will Have You Hungry For Season 5
Not gonna lie, I’m a huge fan of these weekly YellowstoneStories from the Bunkhouse videos.
Jefferson White (Jimmy), Ian Bohen (Ryan), and Denim Richards (Colby) know how to keep the audience entertained with hilarious stories, and in-depth opinions of scenes from the show.
With that being said, Yellowstone has brought us the top 10 bunkhouse moments from Season 4.
From Jimmy riding in the truck with Travis (Taylor Sheridan) on the way to Four Sixes ranch, which includes a hilarious conversation about how Road House is the “best movie ever, ” to the dangers of being Beth’s assistant, the Bunkhouse crew covers all the best moments.
We got happy hours, Carter discovering he’s insanely good at poker, Jimmy’s pain scale, the iconic Rip and Beth wedding, and last but not least, they talk about the cowboy fights, and how heated it’s gotten at times.
I mean, watching Ryan Bingham’s character, Walker, and Forrie J. Smith’s character, Lloyd, duke it out in the round pen was one of the highlights of Season 4.
So, my only question… when is Season 5?
Jefferson White On His Fame As Jimmy From ‘Yellowstone’
The guy plays a huge role in the show as arguably the most popular ranch hand, who is now crafting his own story down at the iconic 6666’s Ranch down in Texas. Plus, everybody loves a good comeback story and Jimmy went from being a dumbass meth cook to the the loveable idiot of the Yellowstone Ranch.
While he was on the pod, he mentioned that he can’t even put into words what Yellowstone has meant for him and his career, and how it opened up a new world of culture that he was unfamiliar with beforehand.
He even talked about how everywhere he goes, he constantly gets called Jimmy, and even better, he’ll often hear Rip’s iconic “shut the fuck up Jimmy” line from people as they pass by.
“I get a lot of ‘SHUT THE FUCK UP JIMMY’ from across the street. I’ll be walking down the street in Texas and just hear ‘SHUT THE FUCK UP JIMMY,’ so I give ’em the thumbs up and keep going.”
He also talked about how much the show has opened up his eyes to the cattle ranching and cowboy world, and how heading the Yellowstone podcast has helped him learn.
Jefferson the actor, and Jimmy the character, on similar journeys:
“Ya know when I first started doing this show four years ago, I didn’t really know anything about the western world. I didn’t know anything about cattle ranching, about cowboy’ing, riding rodeo, about any of this stuff, so the last four years has been a real crash course for me.
And ya know alongside Jimmy, that figures out where he fits in this world, I’ve been diving in myself and spending this time trying to learn basically.
This podcast has been an opportunity to deepen that learning, and continue to screw it up. To dive into this culture and this community, especially because this is a lifetime pursuit.”
White also talks about the transformation of Cole Hauser, going from this clean shaven actor to the bearded cowboy Rip:
“It’s both a transformation and also, in acting there’s sort of a constant question. Are you transforming into this character, or are you revealing some part of yourself that is this character, ya know?
And the amazing thing is I’ve only known Cole through the process of working on ‘Yellowstone’ so for me, as long as I’ve known Cole he’s been Rip.”
He also discusses how awesome it is to actually work on a real ranch in Montana for the show, instead of acting on some set pretending like you’re in Montana.
Can you imagine? Getting to work on some of the most gorgeous land in the United States. That’s truly something special within itself.
