If ever there were a perfect picture of Yellowstone’s Luke Grimes as Kayce Dutton, this might be it, and fans are absolutely here for it.

A fan of Luke Grimes, a.k.a. “prodigal son” Kayce Dutton? Of course you are! Why else would you be here. And do we have a treat for you, Yellowstone fans.

Over on Reddit’s ever-active Yellowstone board, fans often post theories that range from intriguing to insane on a daily basis. Today, however, the focus belongs to Kayce Dutton: shirtless, shaggy, and dirty.

“The upvotes on this photo speak volumes LOL” replies one fan to the perfectly simple Reddit post. Indeed, the photo is on fire – both literally and figuratively.

And as fan AKTourGirl sums up perfectly: “Luke Grimes looks so much better shaggy and dirty. Clean shaven, or even just clean, doesn’t look right anymore.”

Honestly, it’s hard to imagine what Grimes looked like before Yellowstone now. “I forgot he was in 50 Shades…lol” one fan notes in kind, remembering the actor’s appearance in 50 Shades of Gray as Elliot Gray.

Kayce Dutton, however, has become Grime’s defining character. It’s absolutely his best performance to date, bar none, and this look is one may consider adopting for the long haul.

Check out the moody shot for yourself below, Yellowstone fans. You’re welcome.

‘Yellowstone’ Fans Take to the Intricacies of Kayce Dutton

One Reddit fan, however, has been missing out on a key piece of Yellowstone lore…

“I don’t think I ever noticed he had the brand…” says T1, noticing the ranch’s distinct Rocking Y branded into Kayce’s chest for the first time.

“How? Lol, that’s why Monica doesn’t like John, coz he was the one who branded him,” replies OK_Chip. “Well, that and the whole wanting Kayce to take her for an abortion and all that insanity… 😂 There’s so many little details, that’s quite easy to do. I pick up on stuff each time I watch it,” they continue.

All too true! Especially for the thousands of fans who end up binge-watching the endlessly-bingeable show. Yellowstone absolutely warrants multiple viewings. Especially ahead of Season 4, which should hit this June, July at the latest.

And if you’re nervous for Kayce’s life after that bombastic Season 3 finale… Don’t be. The man has escaped far worse on the show. Us Outsiders are pretty confident that the attempted assassination of Kayce Dutton was meant to mirror previous gunfire bouts that he’s survived. If any of the Duttons are properly equipped to survive such a scenario, it’s Kayce.
