Fans of Paramount’s Yellowstone are eager to learn the fate of Kelsey Asbille Chow’s character, Monica. In anticipation for the show’s finale, viewers are sharing speculations on what is to come through social media.

Esquire writer, Justin Kirkland, wrote an article detailing potential endings. He lists Monica’s potential death as one of the most shocking of possible plot-twists. He told fans to keep the closest eye on Kelsey Asbille Chow’s character: “a truly left-field twist (and devastating loss for Kayce) would be a shock death for Monica in the finale.”

In a poll the writer posted on August 16, Twitter users are prompted to vote on who they think is least likely to survive the season finale :


Monica came in third place in the poll, receiving only 12.4% of user votes. In first, Roarke/Willa racked in 68.4% of votes. Jamie came in second most expected to “take a ride on that long black train” with 15.3% of votes.

Many replies to the two tweets explained why there is some expectation to see Monica’s character killed off. One user anticipates a curveball: “Roarke and Willa are obvious but…..I say Monica.” Another alludes to the action-packed movies of Keanu Reeves. The user writes, “If Monica gets killed, the episode becomes a John Wick film w/ all the killing (Kayce) will be doing”

No matter what happens, viewers are in store for an entertaining finale. According to CinemaBlend, Kelsey Asbille Chow has been open about the shocking nature of the upcoming episode. The actress remarked, “The end of season 3 is the most jaw-dropping, and I’m wondering how they’ll move forward.”

The third ‘Yellowstone’ season finale will air on the Paramount Network, Sunday, August 23 at 9pm ET.
