The return of the hit Paramount Network series “Yellowstone” is growing closer by the day and fans couldn’t be more excited.

Before the season arrives later this year, fans are getting in their last-minute theories on what is to come for the show. Theorizing and speculating has become the favorite pastime for “Yellowstone” fans. Online forum sites, like Reddit, and social media are full of “Yellowstone” watchers who want to talk shop. The season four theories are coming as fast and furious as the third season finale.

One prominent theory shared by several “Yellowstone” fans is that we have not seen the last of the attacks on the Dutton family. The third season comes to an end with the Montana cattle ranching facing an ambush from an unknown entity. In a recent Reddit thread, many fans seem to think the attacks are still coming to kick off season four. This theory is heavily supported by the season four trailer which clearly shows the ranch under attack. Some fans also believe Jamie Dutton will also come under attack in season four.

“Do you think it’s possible that Jamie is also attacked,” the Reddit user asks. “Maybe we just haven’t seen it yet and season four starts with an attempt on his life. We know from trailers that the ranch is attacked. I can definitely see them splitting the scene in that fashion. I can see Jamie being the one to die, though the trailer makes that seem unlikely. Also unlikely they’d have upgraded Garrett to a regular if his son is offed in the first episode.”

‘Yellowstone’ Fans Believe Another Attack is Imminent

Going by the recent “Yellowstone” trailer, it appears Jamie Dutton is alive to begin season four. As every “Yellowstone” watcher knows, however, you always have to expect the unexpected on the Dutton Ranch.

“It’s possible, even likely, that Jamie is attacked along with the rest of the Duttons if the coordinated attacks were carried out by someone or some entity that doesn’t understand the true depth of Jamie’s estrangement from the family,” another Redditor adds. “The California bikers come to mind, though from a practical sense and my years in law enforcement.”

Now, that is an interesting theory and one that “Yellowstone” fans have batted around. The show could pull something from out of left field that no one sees coming. The biker gang from season three certainly fits that bill. Some fans have even speculated that Malcolm Beck is still alive and is behind the attacks. The possibilities are endless and the “Yellowstone” writing team has many options at their disposal.

It is easy to see that “Yellowstone” fans have upped their level of excitement with the season now weeks away. We will (hopefully) get answers to our most burning questions on November 7.
