‘Yellowstone’: Does New Promo Reveal Beth’s Fate?

by Thad Mitchell

One of the biggest mysteries heading into the fourth season of “Yellowstone” is the fate of four main characters that could be dead or alive.

We know that John Dutton is shot several times in the chest by an unknown assailant and left for dead. His son, Kayce Dutton, is also advanced on by unknown attackers as well. “Yellowstone” ranch hand Jimmy Hurdstrom’s life is also hanging in the balance after falling from a bucking horse.

Then there is Beth Dutton, who may have gotten the worse of the attacks on the Dutton family. Beth is the recipient of an unknown package that her assistant opens on a win. The package turns out to be a bomb and it detonates inside her office as she stands just feet away. The explosion is so powerful that it blasts out all of the windows inside the office complex. Beth’s fate, along with the other three characters mentioned, is very much up in the air. They could be dead, alive or gravely injured once the season four premiere arrives later this year.

With the official “Yellowstone” season four trailer now out, fans have analyzed every single second of the video. Eagle-eye fans believe they may have discovered a clue pointing to Beth Dutton’s survival. It’s likely you have seen the trailer several times by now, but here it is again — pay close attention to the 1:05 mark of the video.

At the one-minute and five seconds mark, we get our first glimpse of “Yellowstone” newcomer Jacki Weaver. The veteran actress will be playing Caroline Warner, the CEO of Dutton family enemies, Market Equities.

‘Yellowstone’ Fans Spot Potential Clue

While Warner will likely play a critical role in the upcoming new season, there is something else in this particular frame shot. The shot of Warner sitting at a desk is distorted by someone with blonde hair. “Yellowstone” fans are convinced this particular head of hair belongs to none other than Beth Dutton.

Numerous fans who have watched the “Yellowstone” trailer frame by frame say this shot confirms Beth is alive.

“I’m still doing freeze-frames as best I can,” a fan writes in a Reddit thread. “This must be the new CEO of Market Equities, and that’s definitely Beth’s hair on the right.”

“Watch it in slow motion… a lot going on! Pause it at 1:05,” another fan says. “Looks like the back of Beth’s head to me.”

This is some mighty fine detective work and shows just how committed “Yellowstone” fans are to their favorite show. If Beth Dutton is indeed alive, one has to think she will have her heart and mindset on revenge. With a team full of rough and tough cowboys at her call, revenge is likely on her fingertips. We wouldn’t want to be in those shoes.

The fourth season of “Yellowstone” will premiere on November 7 — and fans couldn’t be more excited.
