The Duttons enjoy the Governor’s Ball, unaware that a serious accident is occurring elsewhere
Yellowstone Season 5 is here and with it all the drama that surrounds it. Created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, the neo-western drama television series, which premiered on June 20, 2018, has been nothing but a raving series since its premiere. It’s more popular than ever; Season 4 appears to have averaged 10.4 million viewers on the Paramount Network, and more spinoffs are in the works, including the prequel 1923 (itself a sequel to 1883) for the next month and finally 6666, which will chronicle Jimmy’s departure in the last year so spent a lot of time setting up.
It’s not every day you see such a shocking start to a booming series. The Paramount Network series stars Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Wes Bentley, Kelly Reilly, Cole Hauser and Gil Birmingham. The episode of the series follows the conflicts along the shared borders of a large cattle ranch, an Indian reservation, and land developers. This time, however, the conflicts ended with proverbial revenge. The back-to-back episodes also broke another record when the season 5 premiere broke the ratings record with 12.1 million viewers.
As “100 Years is Nothing” began, John’s worst nightmare happened – he was elected governor of Montana. When the adversary called Scott McMullen to admit defeat and urged John to fight for the entire state, the Dutton family patriarch reminded him that they fight for what is right. Regardless, that’s not all that happens. At the end of the first episode, viewers see Kelsey Asbilles Monica, who is said to be 37 weeks pregnant as revealed in the final season. She and Kayce (Rhys Alterman) were expecting their second child, but some pain three weeks before the due date prompted Monica to rush to the hospital while Kayce was away for work. Her pain made driving difficult, and neither she nor the oncoming truck could see the cow in the middle of the road, resulting in a devastating accident. Both Monica and Tate survived the nasty wreck, but the same cannot be said for their baby boy. Monica tried to deliver the baby on the side of the road, but it later turned out that he couldn’t manage it. Tate revealed to his grandfather that Monica and Kayce should name the baby John.
The official synopsis of A Hundred Years Is Nothing reads: “John Dutton is sworn in as governor of Montana; As John settles into the power of his new post, he takes bold steps to protect Yellowstone from his adversaries. the bunkhouse and the Duttons enjoying the governor’s ball.”
Yellowstone Season 5 continues with brand new episodes Sundays at 8 p.m. on Paramount Network.
