‘Yellowstone’ TV: Breaking Down Garrett Randall’s Haunting Season 4 Trailer Message

by Michael Freeman

With the Season 4 trailer for Yellowstone dropping today, there’s a lot to be excited about. Though not even a minute and a half long, the trailer features action every few seconds. However, what’s particularly noteworthy are Garrett Randall‘s ominous words about halfway through the clip.

Around the 42-second mark, we hear Randall speaking. “Fair, moral, those are words men invented to scare and shame other men from taking back what they’ve stolen.”

“What about right or wrong,” we hear a confused Jamie Dutton ask while holding a gun, supposedly on his biological father. Randall calmly replies “there is no such thing.”

Besides the haunting words themselves, what’s particularly interesting is what is happening as Randall speaks. We see a montage of characters getting shot, stabbed, crying, and fighting with one another.

Finally, as soon as Randall utters his last few words from the trailer we see “Everybody Pays” flash across the screen. Randall’s claims seem to be an overview of what we can expect in the next season.

Speculation for Season 4 suggested Randall would be an enemy of the Dutton family. Randall’s dialogue, mixed with Jamie holding a gun on him, seems to confirm it.

Regardless, the Season 4 premiere on November 7 promises to be exciting, if this trailer is anything to go by.

‘Yellowstone’ Star Kelly Reilly Promises More ‘Flashback’ Storylines Coming To Show

Yellowstone’s Kelly Reilly recently shared exciting news for Season 4 of the show with Yahoo! News. Season 3’s cliffhanger saw her office explode, with her nowhere to be found. Her fate left in the air, she talks about how useful flashback sequences are for the show’s storytelling, such as with Beth’s relationship with Jamie.

“This isn’t just sibling rivalry. Taylor [Sheridan] told me. He told me what it was. I’ve always known since Season One pretty much what that was. When people were hating on Beth going, ‘She’s awful to Jamie.’ I was like, ‘Gosh if you only knew.’ But they still waited years until revealing more of their history.”

Reilly approves storytelling in such a way. She likes the main storyline doesn’t give everything away and teases there’s “more to come” with flashbacks and older storylines.

“I was so thrilled that it was actually going to come out in a storyline to kind of explain it. I love that he uses flashbacks and their history. He doesn’t give it to you all at the beginning. There’s more to come. There’s way more to come. You think that’s it, there’s a lot more history. There are lots of ghosts in this show.”

We once again saw Reilly’s office exploding in the new trailer. Taking her words into consideration, one can’t help but wonder just how much of Season 4 will be flashbacks and how it will flesh out current characters.
