“Yellowstone” Season 4 is set to begin this summer. And in the run-up to the premiere, “Yellowstone” fans are taking to online message boards to debate plot developments and float theories about the future of the show.
Monday, on Reddit, one particularly detail-oriented fan pointed out something that no one had brought up on the message boards before.
“I’m just finishing up the S3 finale and I noticed something,” the fan posted. “At 42:23, when Kaycee is on the phone with Monica and the Livestock office is attacked, the shot switches to Monica and an explosion is heard in the background where she is. Looks like she’s at the ranch and something possibly explodes there too? Anyone else notice that?”
‘Yellowstone’ Fans Debate Where the Explosion Came From
Fellow “Yellowstone” fans backed that commenter up, with several saying they had heard the explosion at the ranch as well.
“Yes I noticed that as well! Cannot wait for the next season to see what happened!” one fan posted.
“I noticed that too and said it to my husband,” another fan chimed in. But then the fan added, “He thinks Monica just heard the S&M explosion through the phone where Kayce is. I disagree and think there was another explosion on the Ranch that was not seen on the show. Can’t wait to find out!!”
Was it the explosion in Kayce’s (Luke Grimes) office that Monica (Kelsey Asbille) was hearing? Or was there trouble at the ranch, as well?
“I can see it both ways, where it could have been an explosion at the ranch or just heard through the phone,” yet another fan posted. “To your point however, those guys in the van very well could have hit the ranch and we’re making their getaway when they just happen to come across John on the side of the road.”
Whether the explosion was happening in Kayce’s office or offscreen at the ranch, the Dutton clan was facing its most formidable challenge yet at the end of Season 3. And as “Yellowstone” fans have previously pointed out, the threats to multiple Dutton family members could have come from any of several sources.
Looks like fans will just have to wait until summer to find out if the ranch suffered an attack, as well. And hopefully, the Season 4 premiere will bring some answers to the other questions fans have been asking.
What Will Rip Do?
As far as we know, Rip (Cole Hauser) was not among those characters targeted by attacks. But Beth (Kelly Reilly) was – in the Season 3 finale, a bomb tore through her office, engulfing Rip’s fiancée in smoke and flames. And fans are anticipating that John Dutton’s (Kevin Costner) enforcer will be dishing out some major revenge in Season 4. Of course, it’s possible Dutton may hold Rip back from going all scorched-earth on the family’s enemies.
But will Beth even survive to see Season 4? And what will happen between Beth and Rip if she does? Will they finally get married or will fate intervene?
There’s just one way to find out. And with the Season 4 premiere supposedly happening in June, fans don’t have much longer to wait.
