The Yellowstone Season 5 premiere is less than two months away! The official trailer released earlier this week and it looks like we should expect non-stop action. One of the storylines we’re looking forward to the most is Rip and Beth‘s new marriage. Primarily, we really want to know what we should expect as they head into their new roles as husband and wife.
Kelly Reilly and Cole Hauser recently shared some insight into what marriage will be like for Beth and Rip.
While they may be newlyweds now, this won’t change too much of the dynamic between the popular Yellowstone couple, Kelly Reilly notes in a recent interview with EW. In fact, it is the constant of their companionship that has kept some of Beth’s demons “at arm’s length,” the star says.
“Beth has always been devoted to Rip, marriage does not change her,” Reilly explains. “I think his love for her and hers for him is one of the very few things that keeps her demons at arm’s length.”
The core dynamics within Rip Wheeler and Kelly Reilly’s relationship may not be changing much now that they’re officially newlyweds. However, notes Cole Hauser, one big change Yellowstone fans can expect is that Rip will be moving into the main Yellowstone Ranch house. And, Hauser notes, this will bring some odd dynamics to some core relationships in the series.
According to Hauser, the main ranch house is somewhere his character has “never really been that comfortable.” And, the star says, it will be a “weird thing to think that John Dutton is actually related to him now through marriage.”
And, the actor notes, the newlyweds won’t be looking too far into their future as a married couple, at first. At least not until they confront pieces of the past.
“What I like about what [Taylor Sheridan] wrote is that he slow burns this year with me and Beth,” Hauser explains. “In the beginning, there’s some wonderful moments between the two of us. Some stuff that she’s going through in her past, that she’s having to acknowledge for the first time, and me trying to help her through that.”
“The war feels internal this year for her,” Reilly notes of Beth’s struggles in the coming season. Reilly adds that Beth is “haunted by the past.” And, the actress continues she is “afraid for the future and fighting with all she has for the present moment.”
Reilly and Hauser aren’t the only cast members who have shared insight into Season 5! Forrie J. Smith, who plays Lloyd, recently revealed what fans can expect come November. Read what he said here!
