Though we haven’t seen much of her this season, it sounds like Caroline Warner still has a large part to play in the upcoming “Yellowstone” season finale.

So far, we’ve seen Warner (played by Jacki Weaver) go toe-to-toe with Beth Dutton, even offering her a job at Market Equities. We’ve also watched her interact with her Market Equities lackeys, including Ellis Steele.

John Emmet Tracy, the actor who plays Steele on “Yellowstone,” recently sat down with Express to talk about what’s in store for the Duttons in their war for the ranch.

“Caroline Warner, Ellis Steele and Market Equities have fought similar battles many times in the past,” Tracy revealed to the outlet. “And while it may be true that they’ve never encountered anything like the Dutton Family, it must be said that the Duttons have never faced off against anyone as determined and well-equipped as Caroline Warner.”

Already, we’ve watched Warner make deals with Thomas Rainwater and even tame Beth a bit. She has years of experience on her side as well as a cutthroat attitude.

“Caroline works calmly, methodically, and dispassionately. She is not only unyielding but also extremely prepared and uniquely qualified to play the long game,” Tracy continued. “That game may last longer than the Duttons expect or that they are prepared for.”

He’s not wrong. The Yellowstone Dutton Ranch is already facing financial problems, which is why they got into the horse business. Could they withstand a long-term legal battle as well? Likely not, especially without Jamie on their side.

‘Yellowstone’ Stat Compares Beth Dutton to Caroline Warner

After the stunt Beth pulled with the protestors, the Market Equities CEO likely knows that she’s not on their side any longer. It looks like we might get another showdown between the two powerhouse women in the “Yellowstone” finale. But Tracy believes they clash so much because Beth and Warner are really similar.

“It is hard to choose a favourite Dutton character, but if I had to, it would probably be Beth, who has resonated so deeply with fans of the show,” Tracy told Express. “I think many people would love to be able to move through the world with Beth’s singular focus and fearless determination.”

He continued, “She shocks people, but she also motivates and inspires people. I think Caroline Warner and Beth Dutton are cut from the same cloth.”

He’s not wrong. Both women change the dynamic of the business boardroom and take no crap from anyone. They’re also willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want. Even be ruthless with other peoples’ lives.

“In another set of circumstances, they would be best friends and allies. Since fate has brought them together in these circumstances, they are each going to bring everything they have to the table,” Tracy promised. “Ellis Steele quickly felt the hurricane energy of their first meeting, and I am excited for fans of the show to see how things play out as the storm intensifies.”

Will the storm blow over after the “Yellowstone” season finale Or could this be a conflict that extends into Season 5? Stay tuned to find out, Outsiders.
