Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan knows how to play the long game. He knows how to keep us all in suspense for Season 5 by giving us just enough information to go on. Season 5 of the Dutton drama premieres on November 13, and as far as we’re concerned, it can’t come fast enough!

Now it seems that Sheridan has dropped us another little Season 5 morsel. This one is in the form of possible character deaths. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Sheridan gave fans a hint that someone will die in Season 5.

“If you look at everyone as a chess piece, in Season 5 it is impossible to keep playing the game without taking pieces off the board,” he said. Talk about a potential spoiler, but delivered in Sheridan’s cryptic, metaphorical way. This could be big for Season 5; not only is he talking about one “piece,” but multiple. Straight from Taylor Sheridan’s mouth, there will be deaths in the new season.

Part of this theory may have been foreshadowed in a photo from prequel 1883. We’ve broke it all down here!
