Yellowstone Fans Blame The Writers For The Forgotten Dutton Sibling

Published

on

There’s no question that the inaugural episode of Paramount Network’s “Yellowstone” set the tone for what would become one of the most successful cable shows of the past decade. Episode 1 famously opens on an injured John Dutton (Kevin Costner) in the aftermath of a devastating multi-car collision, one which he appears to be responsible for. The episode itself introduces us to the wide array of workers and Dutton family members who live on the eponymous Yellowstone Ranch, and sets up the family’s ongoing land dispute with the Broken Rock Indian Reservation.

This particular feud ends up having dire consequences by the end of the episode when John’s eldest son, Lee Dutton (Dave Annable), ventures into reservation territory in order to reclaim some stolen cattle. This leads to a direct confrontation between Lee and two employees of the Reservation: Robert Long (Jeremiah Bitsui) and Lee’s estranged brother Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes). What follows is a bloody shootout that serves as the impetus for the entire rest of the series, as Robert guns down Lee shortly before perishing himself at the hands of his former ally, Kayce.

Because Lee Dutton’s death is unquestionably one of the most important moments in the entire series (acting as a catalyst for the numerous bloody conflicts to follow), fans online are extremely confused about the fact that Lee himself appears to have been forgotten by most of his family and is hardly mentioned at all in later seasons.

Fans are confused about Lee Dutton’s erasure from the series

Despite the immense impact that his death had on the story of “Yellowstone,” it’s no secret that Lee is the forgotten sibling amongst the murderous Dutton clan — and this massive oversight has plenty of fans on Reddit scratching their heads.

“Is it possibly an oversight that no one mentions Lee?” wrote u/neutrino_fire on a thread about the lost Dutton. “The first episode was years ago for viewers, but it wasn’t that long ago in the story. Does his family not think about him? It’s like he never existed.” Commentor u/whosgettinggwhat pointed out another strange aspect of Lee’s treatment on the show: “He’s not in the family portraits from childhood either. Drives me nuts.” Plenty of users blamed the series’ writers for this massive oversight, with u/AmericanWanderlust claiming that Lee Dutton was simply a story device for the pilot, and u/tommychamberlain85 implying that Lee’s disappearance should have been corrected by whoever’s in charge of continuity or story on “Yellowstone.”

Although it certainly seems like Lee Dutton has been slowly phased out of the story as we become further and further removed from his death in the pilot, it’s worth mentioning that there have been several passing mentions of Lee in the seasons that followed. Most notable of these is an incredibly poignant moment in Season 2 when John briefly moves into Lee’s old home and has a chat with his deceased son. That said, the fact that the Dutton clan as a whole seems to have moved on very quickly from Lee’s death still feels extremely odd in the context of “Yellowstone” as a whole.

According to Daily Mail, the actress was alongside her husband Michael Douglas at a Burns night celebration.

She told the reporter, “When Tim Burton asked me to do it, I was like ‘whatever you want me to do Tim!’ and then the idea of me playing Morticia, who’s such an iconic, wonderful, juicy character was wonderful.”

Speaking about the show, she said, “It turned out so much better than I think anybody anticipated.”

Catherine also praised her co-star, “Jenny Ortega is just marvellous as Wednesday and through the eyes of Tim Burton it’s a lot of fun.”

The 53-year-old Hollywood star continued, “I’m really happy to be part of it I must say.”

Nia Long Says ‘Fresh Prince’ Costar Will Smith ‘Carried a Burden for Many Years to Represent’ Perfection

Nia Long is proud of how far Will Smithhas come.

In speaking of her former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air costar, Long, 52, applauded Smith, 54, for how he’s handled himself in the spotlight.

“I will always love him. He’s had an incredible career, and he’s carried a burden for many years to try — to represent what perfection looks like,” Long, who played Smith’s character’s girlfriend and fiancée Beulah “Lisa” Wilkes on the series, said in an interview with Yahoo’s Kevin Polowy. “Or what achievement looks like.”

Long also reflected on her generation’s idea of “celebrity” — and how Smith fit into that box. “I don’t think that — at least when we were growing up — there was room to be human. I think he’s now able to be human,” she added.

Last year, Smith went viral after slappingChris Rock on stage at the Oscars. The unscripted moment came after Rock, 57, mocked Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved hairstyle, which was done to her alopecia.

Smith, in turn, faced a great deal of backlash before he eventually apologized for his behavior.

Though Long did not directly mention Smith’s outburst, she equated life in the spotlight to that of strict routine, which sometimes does not allow authenticity.

“We all have our moments in life where we need to reconcile things that we suppress,” she said. “And I think — it’s hard growing up in this business and being front and center every day, all day.”

Of her own career, and backseat spotlight, she added. “Think about it — I can go to the grocery store anytime I want to, and for the most part, people are like ‘Hey, Nia Long.’ No one’s chasing me down the street. I still have my anonymity, and I appreciate that about my career.”

During the conversation, Long also got emotional discussing the difficulties she’s faced in recent months. Long went through a very public breakup last year with her fiancé, former Boston Celtics Coach Ime Udoka, after 13 years together. He had been caught having an affair with a female subordinate within the Celtics organization.

“I’ve had some pretty devastating moments in my life over the last couple of months, and I’ve had to just say ‘It’s alright. You’ll pick yourself back up’ — oh, my God I’m about to cry,” Long added. “You pick yourself back up, and you keep it moving.”

Did Amber Heard Made Johnny Depp Go Through Worst During His Lowest Points? ( Photo Credit – Instagram ; Movie Still )

Amber Heard very well planned steps in divorce against Johnny Depp to take him down during his lowest phases? Read details now!

Amber Heard has been declared guilty of defaming Johnny Depp during the latest Virginia trial. She was ordered to pay a compensation of $10.35 million which was later settled for only $1 million. But did you know, the Aquaman star strategically took steps during divorce? Well, the details of it will leave you shell-shocked.

A lot had been said and done during the one-year span that Johnny and Amber remained married. There were accusations of cheating with Elon Musk, a threesome with Cara Delevingne and so much more! On the other hand, the Justice League actress accused him of domestic violence, and verbal abuse amongst other claims.

A report by Animated Times now reveals details that are truly giving us goosebumps. It looks like Amber Heard strategically planned to leave Johnny Deppdestructed. She allegedly filed for divorce citing their official separation day as 17th April 2016. Betty Sue Palmer, JD’s mom, passed away just 2 days prior to that and the actor was facing his worst possible phase.

On the other hand, Amber heard filed for a restraining order against Johnny Depp on 27th May 2016. That was again the day Johnny Depp was ideally supposed to celebrate the birthday of his daughter Lily-Rose Depp. But unfortunately, his ex-wife stole the thunder.

One refuses to believe that all of this is mere coincidence!

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp denied all the allegations made against him by Amber Heard and termed them “heinous.”

He reacted to them in court and said, “It’s insane to hear heinous accusations of violence, s*xual violence, that she’s attributed to me, that she’s accused me of. I don’t think anyone enjoys having to split themselves open and tell the truth, but there are times when one simply has to because it’s gotten out of control. Horrible. Ridiculous. Humiliating. Ludicrous. Painful. Savage. Unimaginably brutal. Cruel and all false.”
