Yellowstone’s Piper Perabo (Summer Higgins) Says Big Things Are Coming Ahead Of Mid-Season Finale: “Things Are Really Going South”

Yellowstone Season Five is officially in full force, and needless to say, it’s building up to a wild ending.

From John Dutton getting elected as governor of Montana, to Jamie’s jealousy of John Dutton, and scheming with Sarah Atwood from Market Equities to get him out of office. Not to mention, the environmental issues that those on the ranch have been facing, like when Colby and Ryan accidentally killed those wolves from Yellowstone National Park that had collars around their neck.

And on top of that, we’ve also been re-introduced to Summer Higgins, the environmental conservationist who John pardoned out of jail to be his environmental consultant.

With that being said, Piper Perabo, who plays Higgins in the show, recently sat down for an interview with TV Insider to discuss Summer’s reappearance on the show.

And during the interview, she teased some big things that are coming our way the rest of Season Five.

She admitted:

“There’s a lot coming. Things are on the move. I can’t wait to get back to the back half just because I want to know what happens. I personally only know what happens up to the midseason finale up to that last second, and I don’t know what happens when we come back.”

Perabo also admitted that she’s always been a fan of Yellowstone, and she recalled the wild ending of Season Three that really hooked her:

“I wasn’t on the show yet, and I was watching it like, ‘Wait, how long do we have to wait until the beginning of Season 4?’

And it was so long. I feel that way every time there’s an end of a chunk of Yellowstone. I’m like, wait, what? It’s gonna be that way again, I think.”

She also had a lot of praise for Wes Bentley, who plays Jamie Dutton on the show:

“I think Wes is such a good actor and so fun, and I love that he continues to be, no matter how much John includes him, the thorn in his side. And this relationship that he’s getting into is so much trouble, so much trouble.”

And in one last statement, she also admitted that sh*t is officially about to start hitting the fan on the show:

“I think you can tell that things are going really south because the episode doesn’t end at the fair; it ends with him practicing that speech.

And Taylor’s very good, if you’re paying attention, he’s telling you where the trouble’s coming from. I think the fact that he ends with that scene is, for those paying attention, he’s showing you.”

The mid-season finale will air this coming Sunday, New Year’s Day, with the back half of Season Five set to air later this coming spring.
