Wow. That’s about all we can say after watching Episode 8 of Season 4 of Yellowstone, which saw viewers saying goodbye to a longtime character in the most unexpected way possible.
Actually, fans might have said goodbye to two characters. Episode 8 begins with another flashback to the upcoming Yellowstone prequel, 1883, that shows Tim McGraw’s character of James Dutton getting shot and leaves his fate dangling. But while it’s not clear whether he lives or dies, viewers see one character who’s been part of Yellowstone from the start die onscreen at the very end of Episode 8 … Sheriff Donnie Haskell, played by Hugh Dillon, who dies after a shootout at a local diner when John Dutton (Kevin Costner) and Rip (Cole Hauser) interrupt a robbery.
Just want to say the one scene that blew me away was Rip as the voice of reason. This character and this actor are completely killing it week in and week out. My goodness what a show.
There are not that many episodes left in Season 4 of Yellowstone, but there are still a number of questions fans will want the answers to. What will end up happening between Jamie, John and Randall? Is Carter going to be a permanent part of the picture? What’s the significance of the wolf? Are Summer and Beth going to end up as the unlikeliest of friends? Those are just a few of the things avid viewers will be watching for when Yellowstone returns every Sunday on the Paramount Network.
