The “Yellowstone” hiatus is lasting much longer than many thought it would, but that has not deterred fans from discussing the show one bit.

One of the central and most controversial characters on “Yellowstone” is Jamie Dutton. He is the adopted son of Dutton family patriarch, John Dutton, and a primary suspect in the attacks on the Dutton family in season three. Whether Jamie has anything to do with the ambush on the Duttons remains to be seen. Beyond speculation of his involvement in the attacks, many questions surround Jamie’s family lineage. He only found out he was adopted as an infant by the Dutton family last season. He reunited with his biological father, Garrett Randall, last season as well. A Reddit user recently asks fans to pump the brakes on Jamie’s supposed family history. The poster thinks Jamie could be related to John Dutton in another way.

“I spent the past week binge-watching Yellowstone and I am obsessed,” the Reddit user writes. “I can’t wait to season 4! One of the characters I’m most intrigued by is Jamie. I don’t think Jamie had anything to do with the attacks on the family but I think his father may have.”

The “Yellowstone” fan then suggests that Jamie Dutton could be the nephew of John Dutton. It would be a major twist in the story’s plot, to say the least.

“I do think in season four we may find out that Jamie is John’s brother’s son” the poster proclaims. “If you remember the scene between John and his father it was revealed that John had a brother who passed away. It really wasn’t clear why the Duttons adopted Jamie. There had to be a specific reason, why that kid?”

‘Yellowstone’ Has Yet to Announce Premiere Date

It is an interesting theory that could throw a huge wrench into the “Yellowstone” storyline we all know and love. Could the reason John Adopts Jamie be because he is already part of the family? It’s a theory that deserves a long and hard look.

The likes of social media and message board forums are full of “Yellowstone” fans discussion, theorizing and speculating on what is to come. Many thought the fourth season would premiere over the weekend, but it did not come to fruition. Instead, we will continue to entertain ourselves by talking about our favorite show and investigating theories. The hope is now that the new season will begin later this summer once the Olympics wrap up their games. That should come sometime in early August, which is when many fans are forecasting a “Yellowstone” return. Choosing not to compete with the summer Olympics may turn out to be a smart move on the “Yellowstone” producer’s part. Fans hopefully will not have to choose between their favorite show and sports history potentially being made on another channel.

There is still no official timeline on when “Yellowstone” will premiere its latest season, but fans hope it is soon.
