There is nobody quite as tough as Beth Dutton on Yellowstone, the Paramount Network hit show. She is already back in action in Season 4.

Beth Dutton is the daughter of John Dutton (played by Kevin Costner) and the late Evelyn Dutton on Yellowstone. The Duttons are the owners of Yellowstone Ranch — the largest contiguous ranch in the entire United States. Portrayed by the talented actress Kelly Reilly, Beth is one tough son of a gun.

Because the Duttons are such powerful landowners, they are often faced with obstacles and enemies trying to take over their ranch. As a result, Beth Dutton has had to become much more than just her good looks alone. She has made herself into a weapon.

If you recall, Season 3 of Yellowstone ended in a dramatic fashion. The entire Dutton family found themselves at the wrong end of some brutal attacks. John was shot several times and Beth received a package bomb that exploded. That left her badly burned.

Beth Dutton Already Back to Her Old Ways in ‘Yellowstone’ Season 4

Sure, Season 3 of Yellowstone ended in a pretty grim manner. However, with that said, Beth was already back at it in the Season 4 premiere that took place last Sunday. Kelly Reilly explained how her character “went through hell” in an exclusive interview with Parade.com.

“To get burned like that is painful and awful but she doesn’t wear it heavily,” Reilly said. “She doesn’t walk around going, ‘Poor me.’ Beth is just getting the job done. And then you realize at the end of the [first] episode, ‘Wow, she went through hell, too.'”

The foul-mouthed businesswoman is most definitely not someone you want to have on your bad side. She has been through more than nearly anyone else she meets. Reilly says that is one thing she loves about playing the character.

“For me, that’s one of the dignified things about her. I find her strengths, and that she can really go through so much and still survive, I find that really a nice character trait.”

You better believe that Beth Dutton is going to do everything in her power to figure out who put her family in danger. In the meantime, we will all be waiting here and watching when she does figure it out. All of us here at Outsider can’t wait to see what happens next.
