spoilers below for YellowstoneThe latest episode of No Nice to a Coward, so beware if you haven’t watched it!
as much as any Yellowstone The season tends to highlight the fact that John belittles his grandiose ambitions, Season 4 was particularly poignant in terms of Patriarch Dutton’s outlook, with his near-death experience that changed him in ways that didn’t scare him from cancer and other close calls. He certainly did not slow down his movement in crushing and destroying Jimmy’s political ascendancy, nor his ability to enact civil justice at any moment, Especially with Rip around. But the deadly events that occurred at the end of Episode 408 may upend whatever momentum forward Jon had for both plans for revenge and campaigned to become ruler.
Below, let’s discuss YellowstoneThe second major death in Season 4, which unexpectedly joins Rip Roarke was killed by a snake bite in the premiere, before researching how this final sequence might set up two final, less-than-fantastic episodes for John, Rip, and others.
Sheriff Donny Haskell and others died in a café shootout
When Jon and Reb realize that the café they were meeting with Mayor Hugh Dillon was on the way to a robbery, the two men chose to take matters (like guns) into their own hands and use brute force to stop the criminal act, rather than calling up any other authority figures to act as a backup. Given that the thieves were careful enough to play casually after seeing Jon and Rep approaching from the outside, it makes sense that they could have finished the mission without injuring or killing anyone, and were available to shoot after the accident.
However, Jon and Reb did not allow this scenario a potential opportunity to play, and instead entered with flaming guns. On the bright side of things, the thieves were effectively put down. But every aspect of it was darkened by the blood of innocents, as Donnie and many more local citizens were killed during the close encounter. While John and the mayor didn’t always see eye to eye, they both basically wanted what was best for the area, so it’s definitely considered a loss for an ally. The loss added to his frustration by calling his daughter and dying seconds after their conversation.
Jon Warp is likely to be put under the microscope thanks to the political ruler
While John’s motivations in stopping the coffee shop robbery were great and all, overall, they were certainly not designed with his immediate future in mind. When a prominent rancher who just announced his candidacy for governor stops a crime with deadly force, people take notice. And even if he initially came out of it looking like a hero of some sort, it wouldn’t take much examination to realize that it was Jon’s aggressive reaction that caused things to become deadly.
By all means, this certainly wouldn’t stop some people from continuing to praise his actions, but it would likely draw much unwanted attention into John’s life even beyond what he had already expected from climbing the political ladder in Montana. The same goes for Rip, who has admitted in the past that he doesn’t even have any official registered identity, which is why it is assumed that he and Beth cannot recognize a wedding by the courts. Rip’s identity case will and must be addressed by having to answer for his involvement in the shootout. Not that I want Rip to get caught up in legal issues, but I’m just as interested as anyone else in finding out how this happened and/or explaining it away.
Donnie’s death could spoil Jon’s plans for the Riggins
The whole reason John met Donnie Haskell was to try to come to an agreement on how to shorten Riggins’ prison sentence. (Obviously it might have been through an “accidental” death rather than an early release for good behaviour.) John obviously doesn’t know that Jimmy has already obtained immunity from attack scheme, which can make it difficult to harm the inside. Although it’s probably not impossible, given the Duttons’ web of influence is as far-reaching and sticky as they come.
However, the mayor’s death presents an obstacle for John to overcome in order to carry out his revenge plans. After all, if Donnie is replaced by someone who abhors what the Dutton family stands for, even temporarily, it will only make John’s most pressing goals more difficult to check on his list.
Any news coverage gives Jimmy an easy chance to explore other family scandals
I can’t imagine it was a coincidence that John and Rep’s confrontation to stop the robbery happened in the same episode as Jarrett and Jimmy (Together with the increasingly comfortable Christina with all this) We specifically discussed talking to John about the boundaries that exist in terms of airing each other’s dirty laundry. Since Jimmy’s hands have been soiled repeatedly over the years – strangling someone to death in cold blood has such an effect – he doesn’t have much of a higher path to follow in this regard.
However, the coffee shop robbery is a case that Jamie has nothing to do with and thus could be spun against his father in some rather damning ways, with other skeletons possibly getting out of John’s jam-packed closet in the process. Sure, this would cause John to dump his son under every bus imaginable, thus polluting two generations of Dutton politics, but it might be worth it for Jimmy if it means taking an active role in tarnishing the family name in Montana and beyond. Which is likely to be followed by “accidentally” Jimmy dropping his approved title and regaining Randall’s title.
Although I didn’t touch it above, I feel there must be some overarching meaning to the episode being booked. Flashbacks by James Dutton by Tim McGraw He would likely die of a gunshot wound after the horse thieves’ brutal justice was served, and then Donnie’s death which occurred while John was trying to stop the thieves. I can’t figure out how to tie it all together in a neat, blood-soaked arc, so I hope Taylor Sheridan does it for me in the last two episodes of Season 4.
