Production for Season 5 of Yellowstone is well underway, and fans are eagerly anticipating its release in November. It looks like some recurring cast members are making appearances! Josh Lucas, Kyle Red Silverstein, and Kylie Rogers, who play young John Dutton, young Rip Wheeler, and young Beth Dutton, respectively, will be back this season.
What does this mean? It gives us the opportunity to speculate on the nature of their return! Obviously, there’s going to be a flashback or two. Taylor Sheridan has used flashbacks in the past to give us crucial information within the story and delve deeper into the characters. Now, he’s bringing that storytelling mechanic back to Season 5.
We’re guessing some of Season 5 will focus heavily on Beth and Rip and this new step in their relationship. A flashback might help us better understand their dynamic. If there’s a fight, or something happens, we could use a flashback to understand why they reacted in certain ways. We know that Beth has a lot of trauma from her youth. Further flashbacks could help shed some more light on why she is the way she is. Coupled with more exploration of Rip’s character as a teenager, and the two of them together, this is going to make for a very interesting time!
What do you think is going to happen?! Let us know!
