The fourth season of the hit Paramount Network series “Yellowstone” is off to a fast start and fans can’t wait to see what happens next.

On “Yellowstone,” there is perhaps no character as intriguing as Wes Bentley’s Jamie Dutton. What makes Jamie so interesting is that there are so many different paths we could see him go down. It’s been sort of a slow-moving season so far Jamie and we’ve not seen him do a lot. But we probably will in the near future. He’s spent most of his season four screen time with his biological father, Garrett Randall.

Looking to break away from the “Yellowstone” Ranch, Jamie and Garrett have bought themselves a nice piece of land. Jamie seems genuinely thrilled that his real father is in his life — that is until he has a sit-down with his brother, Kayce Dutton. Kayce gives Jamie the name of the man who he believes ordered the attack on the Dutton family. Much to Jamie’s surprise, he comes to learn that his father was once cellmates with this person. The revelation seemingly sets off buzzers in Jamie’s mind that suggest Randall could be behind the attacks.

The Small Detail

In a recent Reddit thread, a poster provides a theory that Jamie’s demise could come soon.

“I’ve noticed that in all the promotional material for season 4 all the interviews take place on set, except for Wes Bentley (Jamie),” the poster points out. “He appears to be interviewed in an apartment and sporting a very different look from the one he normally has on the show. This indicates the fact that Jamie may not be coming back for season 5. It wouldn’t be too far-fetched to think that he might die at the end of this season, given the position he is in right now.”

‘Yellowstone’ Fans Question Jamie’s Future on the Show

In a show that isn’t afraid to kill off well-liked and disliked main characters, Jamie’s death would not be a surprise.

A few other Redditors agree with the poster. They believe Jamie’s run on the show could be coming to an end.

“I’ve noticed this too and wondered what was up with it and found myself thinking the same thing,” another “Yellowstone” fan comments. “Most of his scenes are in an office though, so that could be anywhere.”

Interview locations aside, there is plenty of reason to believe Jamie is on the way out. Many “Yellowstone” watchers believe he is behind the attacks on the Dutton family. If the family finds out it was him — well, his life expectancy decreases dramatically. The same could be said if his biological father is behind the ambush.

Whether it comes true or not, Jamie Dutton’s storyline is one contains a lot of mystery. We are excited to see how it plays out.
