Yellowstone Season 5 Episode 1 is in the books, and people are already loving the new round of drama. But amid all the fanfare, viewers couldn’t help but notice one glaring problem with John Dutton’s inauguration party.
As most people know, politicians take office shortly after the first of the year, which means the Duttons are about two months. Strangely they celebrated John’s success at an outdoor party—in Montana—when the temperatures are usually in the 20s or 30s, and the wind and snow are blistering.
“For all the murder and malfeasance in Yellowstone, the most unrealistic thing is that they’re having an outdoor inauguration party in Montana in January,” one fan wrote on Twitter
“Yellowstone has zero to do with any reality,” Cowboys Not Eggheads added. ” I’ve never seen such nice weather in Montana in January.”
As the episode carried on, Twitter continued to light up with comments from people who can’t get over the glaring inaccuracy.
The Montana governor’s mansion is in Helena, which does have less snowfall than other parts of the state. But the city still tends to get plenty of accumulation during the month. So, it was odd to see greenery surrounding John as he took power.
“[Aren’t] Governor inaugurations in January?” asked a curious mind. “How is there green grass and warmth in Montana then? Come on Taylor!! #YellowstoneTV#Yellowstone.”
A Surprising ‘Yellowstone’ Death Distracts Fans From Warm January Afternoon
Sadly, it took the heartbreaking accident to derail people’s attention. As always, Yellowstone jumped right into the turmoil. And as most of the Duttons were enjoying an unseasonably warm party, one of them suffered a tragic death.
