Last night, the fifth episode of Yellowstoneseason five dropped, and needless to say, it’s a lot to unpack.
With that being said, the cast of Yellowstone is once again giving us a “behind the scenes” look at episode five with another recap video.
The video kicks off with Wes Bentley (Jamie) discussing Sarah Atwood’s visit to Jamie’s office:
“Sarah walks into Jamie’s life when he’s looking for some kind of solution. Not necessarily love but I definitely think he sees an opportunity as much as she may see an opportunity in him. He sees in her an identical understanding of the power in law.”
Dawn Olivieri, who plays Sarah Atwood, added:
“This is a constant chess game that she’s actively in the moment, present, and playing.”
Wes Bentley also noted that even though Jamie has a feeling he’s being played when Sarah comes on to him, it’s hard for him to resist Sarah:
“It’s not that he’s being a fool or blind to it, but maybe it’s worth the risk. Now, is that Jamie being fooled, it could be, who knows?”
Kelsey Asbille, who plays Monica, weighed in on Kayce and Monica’s struggle to mourn the loss of their unborn son:
“It’s so natural to do the shoulda, coulda, wouldas for Monica, because she knows, you know, she doesn’t want him to carry that guilt around.”
Luke Grimes (Kayce) added:
“Monica says, hey, your job has nothing to do with the pain in our life. She comes along and really starts to guide him more than his family legacy does, and I think that means everything to him.
For the first time he and his wife find a common ground through the pain, they finally find something where he’s not at odds with her anymore. And I think that will finally help him decide what kind of man he wants to be.”
Piper Perabo, who plays Summer, then discussed Summer’s re-acclimation to the Dutton household:
“Summer came in here really against the family. I don’t understand these people, I don’t understand their way of life.”
Kelly Reilly also adds that Beth hates the fact that she has to put up with Summer again:
“Summer is now a guest in the house, Beth has to put up with it. There’s nothing she can do, it’s her father’s house.”
This ultimately leads to the wild scene between Beth and Summer at the dinner table.
Kevin Costner (John) weighed in:
“We’ve just never had a peaceful meal that seems, and that one turns really violent.”
And then, Beth proceeds to take Summer outside and whoop her ass.
Reilly discussed the scene:
“I don’t think she was aware that she was, you know, a martial arts expert.”
“I’ve been excited to do this fight all season. We’ve been rehearsing for months. It took us two nights to film it…
I didn’t think that Summer would live through a fight with Beth, but what happens is that by the end I get Beth’s respect for how hard I fought, and it starts to change their relationship.”
“She does give Beth a run for her money in the fight, loved that Beth is tested that way. It becomes something much more profound to her… In a way, it kind of clears the air for them.”
