Like a lot of things in the Yellowstone world of John Dutton, there’s a reason why he wants Beth, Rip, and Carter under the same roof.

Kevin Costner, who plays John Dutton, talks about this as another “Behind the Story” episode from the show airs on Monday.

“John Dutton does want his family under the same roof,” Costner says. “It’s important to him. He says as much.”

After showing some scenes with Beth Dutton, played by Kelly Reilly, and Rip Wheeler, played by Cole Hauser, Costner adds some more perspective.

“Do families have dysfunction? They do,” the Yellowstone star says. “Does this one have dramatic dysfunction? It does.”

Catch Costner, Hauser, and Reilly talking about that scene in this collection of “Behind the Story” interviews.

With just a couple of episodes left in this Season 4, Yellowstone will have a little time to add more drama and dysfunction before it all ends.

If you want to see how John Dutton handles this and many other situations, tune in on Sundays at 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central, on the Paramount Network.

‘Yellowstone’ Might Be Seeing New Storyline with Jimmy Doomed From Start

OK, let’s turn our attention to Jefferson White, who plays Jimmy Hurdstrom, as his character finds himself in a new romance.

So, is this storyline on Yellowstone doomed before it really gets going?

Let us see with an assist from Brinkwire.

Jimmy and White himself are in the midst of Season 4 of Yellowstone. He’s now joined the Four Sixes Ranch. Will this new romantic move with Emily, played by Kathryn Kelly, last for a long time?

His relationship with Mia, played by Eden Brolin, is over. And Yellowstone only has two episodes left this season on the Paramount Network.

The rival Four Sixes ranch was just introduced on the show. So, in the episode titled Keep the Wolves Close, Emily and Jimmy crossed paths.

Her role for the Four Sixes is as a veterinary technician. She collects horse sperm for the ranch’s research lab.

So, she went to Jimmy and asked him out to dinner. Outsiders, in three seasons, Jimmy has had three different girlfriends. “However, none of them last very long!” White says.

Oh, so as Season 4 comes to an end soon, might Emily end up like his previous relationship with Mia?

Anyway, Jimmy was not able to give Emily an answer because he’s still undecided about Mia. That hesitation move could just put the brakes on that romance. His flirtation with Emily could be a one-night stand before he returns to Mia.

So, Yellowstone fans, there are a lot of moving parts and we have to simply see how everything shakes out.
