‘Yellowstone’ Star Wes Bentley Teases Jamie Ditching Duttons for Good in New Season 4 Interview

by Thad Mitchell

We now have less than two months to go before our favorite show, the Paramount Network’s hit show “Yellowstone,” is back in our lives. With just around six weeks before the premiere of “Yellowstone,” fans are growing more and more excited.

One of the biggest questions lingering in the minds of “Yellowstone” fans is Jamie Dutton’s next move. Jamie Dutton, played by actor Wes Bentley, is one of the more complex characters on the show. He is at something of a crossroads as season four approaches and there are a couple of paths he could go down. One of those paths could lead him to absolve his relationship with the Dutton family.

Jamie has always had an uneasy relationship with his family, especially his father, John Dutton (Kevin Costner). The uneasiness multiplied when Jamie discovers he was adopted by the Dutton family as an infant. The rising Montana politician feels betrayed by his adoptive father for not telling him his true lineage. With this knowledge, Jamie seeks out and finds his biological father, Garrett Randall, and that is when things get especially hairy.

In a recent interview, Will Patton, the actor behind the Garrett Randall character, may have revealed a clue on Jamie’s next move. He says “Yellowstone” watchers should always expect the unexpected — a lesson we have all learned through the first three seasons. The veteran actor says, “It makes sense” that Jamie would be behind the attacks on the Dutton family in season three.

‘Yellowstone’ Actors Says to Expect the Unexpected

Patton hints the upcoming new season will be full of surprises.

“So I just kind of – you never quite know what’s going to happen in this series,” Patton says. “Even though they say, ‘This is probably what’s going to happen.’ You never quite know with this series, you never know where you’re really going to go. So for me, it was surprising as we went along where it went.”

Earlier this year, “Yellowstone” revealed that Patton would be moving up to the main cast in season four. His character appeared only towards the end of the third season but will be a big part of things moving forward.

Many fans speculate that it is indeed Jamie behind the attacks on the Dutton family. While he certainly isn’t the only suspect, he would appear to have plenty of motive to act. The question for many does he act alone.

Randall added fuel to the fire late in the third season, subtly suggesting to Jamie that he depart the Dutton family. He also tells his biological son that the only way to take down an empire is to kill the king.

The king in this situation is obviously Jamie’s adoptive father, John Dutton.

We still have a ways to go before the new season arrives but answers to our burning “Yellowstone” questions are coming soon.
