Yellowstone Season 5, Episode 5 Gives Us Some Action, Beth & Summer’s Rivalry Gets Bloody [SPOILERS ALERT]

Published

on

Beth and Summer take their fight to the ranch… literally.

There was enough drama in last week’s episode of Yellowstone to fill a ten-gallon hat, as the fifth season finally left those musty government boardrooms and shifted into high gear. Literally! After Beth discovered that Jamie had a secret son, the Dutton outcast almost ran over his sister with his car. What’s worse? He’s now sleeping with the enemy: Market Equities’s dangerous consultant, Sarah Atwood. (If that’s even her real name!) Plus, if that wasn’t enough trouble, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Park officers are going after Rip and his cowboys for accidentally killing endangered wolves. How will that bite Governor John Dutton™ in the ass? We’ll just have to wait and find out.

“Me being Governor is throwing a wrench in about everything it could,” Dutton tells Rip at the beginning of the episode, but says it’s worth it just to get all that airport land back. It’s cattle-branding season, people, and Rip must hire extra part-time workers to get the job done. John tells him they’ll have to sleep outside, but that he’ll be on the ranch to oversee it. This also means foregoing all Governor duties… which he’s kind of already doing. “Cancel all the meetings that are scheduled, and don’t schedule any more,” Dutton tells his assistant. He plans to invite a news crew to “show the world who we are and what we do” in one fell swoop.

Dutton is also a bit confused about all the laws and restrictions about the wolf drama from U.S. Wildlife. So he tells Beth that Summer may be able to help him, since she tends to run with those circles in her work as a political activist. Beth, however, chides him for thinking with his you-know-what instead of his head. “They’re no different than Dan Jenkins wanting a private club, or Market Equities wanting their fucking airport,” Beth says. “They want the land, Dad. That is all you need to understand.”

Later on in the episode, Beth tells Rip to stay out in the tents with the hired help. During some playful banter, she jokes about flying off to Las Vegas for a night at the Wynn if he doesn’t want her to stay. Just this past week, Paramount announced that it’ll host the red carpet premiere of 1923—the Yellowstone spinoff series set to debut on December 18—at that exact same hotel. It’s a Yellowstone easter egg for the smallest audience possible, sure. But as part of said small audience, I burst out laughing.

Back at Kayce and Monica’s home, the couple is still grieving the loss of their unborn child. Monica urges Kayce not to quit his job and to get back to work—even though he worries that his day-to-day operations get in the way of being there for his family. Monica tells Kayce that she loves him. He responds, “Never doubt it.” Kayce arrives back on the Dutton ranch and John calls him “his only son.”

From there, we immediately cut to Jamie’s new dilemma. Sarah Atwood says that their sexual relationship would force him to excuse himself from representing the state in cases against Market Equities. “Is that why you did it?” Jamie asks her. She doesn’t deny it. Jamie adds that the state would hire outside council for that kind of litigation anyway. So if that’s why she slept with him? It was all for nothing. Atwood proceeds to strip in his office, teasing him about being unprofessional. Yellowstone! I can’t tell if she’s winning this psychosexual political battle, but knowing Jamie? He’s probably losing.

At night, the Dutton family has the big dinner we were anticipating for Thanksgiving last week—and it’s one of the best dinner scenes in the show’s entire run. (Which is saying a lot.) Their private chef, whose name is Gator by the way, brings out a big feast of game. Summer is disgusted! She calls venison a poor deer who was minding its own business and calls doves “the bird of peace.” Kayce says the “doves taste good” and Monica laughs at how awkward the whole situation is. Is there no one else in Montana for John to fall in love with? Beth invites Summer to take a walk and John urges the “girls” to calm down. “Girls?!” they reply in unison, quickly leaving the table.

Outside, Beth socks Summer two good ones in the face. Knocked to the ground, Beth clobbers her even more until her face is red with blood. Making his way outside, Rip gives them some moral lesson about choosing words instead of violence. Sure, this is the same guy who brands people and makes them fight, gladiator-style, for dominance in the bunkhouse, but whatever! He tells Summer to “shut the fuck up and say thank you” that they would even offer her food, when there are people in the world who are starving. Then he suggests that they figure out how to get along. “Just stand here and trade [punches] until one of you has had enough,” he says. There’s our Rip. Battered and bloody, they return to the dinner table, ruining the night. If the Duttons were ever going to learn about what Summer preaches versus what they preach (and vice versa), it seems only one of those things is going to happen this episode—and it’s Yellowstone versus the world.

John and Rip share a little after-dinner whiskey, and John talks about how “cowards rule the world” with their “coward rules and coward customs.” He thought Beth would calm down as she got older, but she seems to only get more wild with each passing year. “You know, I’ve got one child I miss, one child I pity, and one I regret,” John says. “But that girl, that child I envy.” Before dawn breaks in the morning, the Dutton family heads out to brand the cattle. Beth tells Summer to take a walk around the ranch while they’re gone. “Tell me if there is a forest in America in better shape or more loved. Then tell me I’m the enemy,” Beth says. Well, far in the background, we see that the dry season has created a big wildfire. Can someone check on that?

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.”
