In the Season 2 premiere of Yellowstone, we joined the Dutton family, their saga already in progress. Patriarch, John Dutton, has 99 problems, external and internal. In fact, it feels like things are going off the rails on the smooth train he’s built. John and daughter, Beth, move forward on disrupting son Jamie’s political career by backing his opponent. Beth also concocts a plan to protect her father’s ranch by buying property around it. Meanwhile, John’s youngest son, Kayce, is a mess most of the time and has growing tension with ranch manager, Rip. Last week ended with John experiencing a ruptured ulcer and a lot of regret.  Catch up on all the action from last week’s episode here.

Now, ride out to the ranch for our recap of Episode 2 of Yellowstone, “New Beginnings” … BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!

TV Recap: Yellowstone (Episode 201) – So Much To Undo …

Yellowstone
“A Thundering” (Episode 201)
June 19, 2019

Season 1 of Yellowstone introduced us to the Dutton family, owners of the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States … its approximately the size of Rhode Island. Based in Montana, the Dutton Ranch is run by the family patriarch, John Dutton (Kevin Costner).  The Duttons Ranch abuts an embittered Native American reservation as well as the first National Park, Yellowstone. John has 4 adult children who serve the family and the ranch in different ways. Beth (Kelly Reilly) is a high-powered financial player who takes more of a lead role in the family’s business dealings. Kayce (Luke Grimes) is an ex-Navy SEAL with a ton of PTSD and Daddy issues. By the end of Season 1, he’s estranged from his wife, Monica (Kelsey Asbille), and returns to the ranch to live (his son stays with mom). Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) is a lawyer and is persuaded by the Governor to run for state Attorney General (John doesn’t particularly like this line of business for his son). In furtherance of his career, Jamie betrays the family to a reporter looking for dirt on the Duttons. Lee Dutton (Dave Annable) was murdered by his sister-in-law’s brother at the end of Episode 1 … so don’t get attached to him.

Enough about Season 1, let us ride into the fray of Season 2. Keep reading for our deep dive recap & review of the Season 2 premiere, “A Thundering” … BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!
