‘Yellowstone’ Star Brecken Merrill Tributes ‘Legend’ of a Costar, Mo Brings Plenty

During the latest episode of “Yellowstone” Season 4, star Brecken Merrill spent a bit more time with Mo Brings Plenty.

Merrill’s character, Tate, watched Mo’s character help out his dad, Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes). Kayce’s been seeing this wolf throughout the show, and Mo guides him through a Native American ritual that will help Kayce confront his demons.

It was incredible to watch the ritual come to life on screen, with authentic props, words, and actions from the cast. Tate also helped a bit by collecting different grasses for Kayce.

But Mo was certainly the real star of the “Yellowstone” scene, and Merrill acknowledged it in a recent Instagram post. He shared a photo of Mo on horseback earlier today, with a bull or cattle skull slung over his shoulder.

“@mobringsplenty looked like such a legend tonight! Only one episode left of Yellowstone season 4,” Merrill captioned the post.

It’s incredible to think that Season 4 will wrap up in just one week. Hopefully, by then, Kayce’s ritual will have been completed and he’ll emerge alive on the other side of it. Mo certainly gave him several tools to help, from prayer ties to a pipe to the sweetgrass Tate collected.

‘Yellowstone’ Scene Features a Song By Mo Brings Plenty

Something that was also a part of the ritual on “Yellowstone” was a night spent in a handmade hut or shelter. Kayce and Mo put it together with tree limbs found in the area. They seemed to spend the night in there, all while Mo sang a hauntingly beautiful song called “Brings Plenty.”

The official “Yellowstone” Twitter account sent a shoutout to Mo during the airing of the episode. Every week they like to tweet out when a new song from a well-known artist shows up on the episode. And they finished off the night with Mo’s song during the ritual.

Surprisingly, this isn’t Mo’s first musical experience. He actually joined the famous Native American new-age band Brulé in 2006 and played with them until 2010. The 20-year-old band incorporates Native American instruments with a traditional five-piece rock ensemble. They’re a top-selling band and continue touring to this day, although Mo Brings Plenty doesn’t perform with them anymore.

But he certainly hasn’t lost his touch. Mo’s song last night perfectly captured the mood of the scene, with the sprawling nature shots and sounds of the birds and insects in the background. Now, all that’s left to see is whether Kayce makes it out okay on the other side of this ritual.

He has to spend four days and four nights with no food or water, staying within the bounds of the prayer ties Mo set up for him. Based on the preview next week, it looks like Kayce will run into a bit of trouble. But we have no doubt that he’ll fight his way out of it just fine.
