Spoiler alert: This article previews the plot details of the first episode of “Yellowstone” season 5.

“Yellowstone” season 5 is almost here and the Dutton family has decided to work together to let the past haunt them and save their farm. just kidding! Unrelenting drama and intrigue are back in the political maelstrom, now that patriarch John Dutton (Kevin Costner) has become the ruling ruler of the country. As time skips between seasons during the election campaign, John clearly wins by a landslide – helped by his two politically minded children, the heroic Beth (Kelly Reilly) and the sarcastic Jamie (Wes Bentley). Meanwhile, Beth’s husband Rip (Cole Hauser) and another brother, Casey (Luke Grimes), are off doing cowboy stuff. Yeh-haw!

Ahead of the high-profile season premiere, Difference They spoke with Reilly, Bentley, and Hauser about some of the season’s key strategic moves, how creator Taylor Sheridan’s writing is the lifeblood of the show, and their most exciting moments with fans.

What effect will John’s rulership have on your behavior?

Riley: On the political side, Beth thinks that her father being a ruler is a necessary evil. Sadly, this is the problem of saving and protecting the dogs that want this land. This is the only way you can protect it. I think there is something more layered to it. I think she would be really proud of it. He is a fourth generation Montanan – they they are. Montana is proud to see her father play this role, and nothing gives Beth more joy than to dive with the enemy, and her father is going to do just that. She is proud of that.

Bentley: Jamie doesn’t have a plan for the first time. He always had a plan, always had an ambition. He’s out, but he thinks his father’s unusual arrangement as a lawyer is finally leading him to become governor. This in itself gives some freedom and some power. So he is willing to put up with all that. But now that’s over, and I think he’s realizing that’s never going to happen. It was never going to happen. He has nothing. He is full of anger. He wants revenge. He wants Something. But I think he realizes that’s not going to happen, so maybe something will come along to help him get out of this mess. But at this moment, despite his anger, he was done.

Hauser: When John became governor, Rips was put on the ranch. Now he’s a foreman, not just Banks, which was his business in the past. He’s really looking at the whole cover, and what’s great about the way Taylor’s written this year is that he’s giving Rip a chance to make mistakes rather than falling flat on his face. John isn’t there so he can fire off ideas. So it’s the year and the season that you see him learning on his feet how to run this huge ranch with a lot of responsibility.

What does happiness mean to you?

HauserI mean, that’s not how Taylor writes. It’s not like before. And I think it will be very boring to see [Rip and Beth] Totally hi, you know what I mean? What, you put two fukin’ straws in a drink on a fukin’ island in Tahiti? It’s not something people want to see. So I think you have to make it fun and Taylor has done a great job of doing that over five seasons.

Riley: I think happiness is something that Taylor throws in little things along the way. I think there are times this season where you can see what that might look like for Beth. I don’t know if he’s going to give her that. But I think the bottom line is this: If everyone was happy and there were no adversaries, there would be no drama, no pain and no tragedy. We all know that these characters exist in this lofty world and the stakes are high and there is much to be won. You know how Beth feels about therapy, and I don’t think healing will happen overnight with her. Taylor cuts the foundation of the riverbed painfully hard and is a big motivator and reason why they do things.

whatIs it a very challenging part to play your character?

Riley: I think the hardest thing about this character for me is keeping her real. Some of the things that Taylor does and says, I always have to stay connected to, it’s so clear and transparent, it seems like an inner world of truth. So, ‘how do I get back into character even if she does some nasty things?’ I’m always watching. I wait because it’s so good for the writing, and some of it is pure entertainment, and some of it I just have to root for her and keep it in something completely true to how she behaves. . You can tell that Taylor writes with such freedom with Bette, he doesn’t hold back, and so I’ve learned over the years playing her, that where she is now is to push him and see her in those. moments.

Do I stay in character? [between takes]? No, that would kill me, so at the end of the day I would leave her in my dress and go home. She is definitely on my mind and I think about it a lot. It’s a challenging character and I’m really anxious to hit all the notes and make it real and do my best. But I try not to take her home. I don’t think my husband likes this.

Bentley: One of the hardest things about playing this character is getting Wes to do that, going against some of the things that he does. But I have to isolate myself more than ever to make room for Jamie and his choices and strange decisions. I mean, Jamie always thinks he has the smartest move. He also has a real sense of right and wrong, but within himself. There is really no right and wrong in the world, and right and wrong change depending on what is needed at that moment. So that shifting moral compass is really hard to find, but it’s also really fun. That’s what appeals to me about it because it’s something complicated about it. what is it Really Right and wrong for him?

How do fans approach talking about your character? What is the scene or moment that people remember the most?

Bentley: Yes, absolutely, especially when we were shooting in Montana, everyone was comfortable with us and knew us well. Sometimes I’m shopping in town and people can yell at me in the store like they hate me but they have a smile on their face. [Laughs] It’s all good fun, or they have suggestions for what Jamie should do, or they have medical things that Jamie can help. It’s amazing. It’s also interesting because they have a lot of interest. They’re really invested in the characters and the score, so it’s a great experience.

Hauser: One of the fan favorite moments is the scene with Beth and I’m sitting on the balcony and she gives me a ring – saying it’s like Luke Nut. I think they are making such a ring from some famous jewelry company and are going to sell it.

Riley: There was a scene where people really responded to me when Beth was attacked in the office. I think that was a turning point for people who fell in love with the character. She wasn’t a hot dog, she was actually someone who could really fight and defend. There was dignity in that — they could kill her, they could bully her, but she would never let them take her power. And for many women it was a shock and energy. That and the scene where they trashed the shop in the boutique. Beth loves it when you destroy something. People love it. It’s kind of illuminating for the American psyche.
