  • (dramatic music)

  • - Turn that off.

  • - I can only turn it off when he meets his attorney.

  • - I am his attorney.

  • (dramatic music)

  • Jamie is really clever.

  • He's an incredibly clever survivalist,

  • which makes him a good lawyer.

  • - City people find out really quick

  • that country people have been to college,

  • understand the same books, and can be formidable

  • in the legal world just as well.

  • - But in this situation, he's created the mess

  • and needs to get himself out.

  • Do you recall the events I am repeating to you?

  • And he's fighting with you know the same rush

  • that caused what happened in season two

  • with killing the reporter.

  • I think he has the same rush of anger, anxiety,

  • and poor decision making.

  • There's a full panic, I think, going.

  • - Are you out of your fucking mind?

  • - But this time it's a little different.

  • This time Jamie realizes he's only thinking

  • about himself to dig himself out of this hole.

  • And it goes into more of I think a self-preservation mode.

  • (slow, country music)

  • - In this world, in the world of Yellowstone

  • and in the world of John Dutton, everything is bigger.

  • He's a big character and Yellowstone is a huge place.

  • The idea of it for a man like the character of John Dutton,

  • it's just so important to keep

  • what you've built and what your father has built

  • and just pass it down and keep it alive.

  • - You know, Governor Perry has got a lot of angles to play.

  • The major antagonist this season,

  • the financial group that comes in

  • and wants to buy up everything,

  • everything around and want to turn it all into a ski resort.

  • They come in with this proposal

  • with the idea that this would be better for the state.

  • - That's progress, Governor, and progress has a price.

  • - As the governor of Montana, she has no choice

  • but to think about the people of Montana

  • and what that means and that means change probably.

  • A lot of people to please and a really big bear to

  • (laughing) to keep happy in John Dutton.

  • (slow guitar music)

  • - Lynelle and John are continuing their sort of romance

  • and their sort of business relationship

  • in a way that still serves her

  • because she still wants to be the boss.

  • But she really cares about John

  • and she wants to meet his needs too as far as that legacy

  • and keeping his family on top and involved.

  • John Dutton admitting that he can't do everything?

  • - I admitted no such thing. (laughing)

  • - I love working with Wendy.

  • We've had a great time since our very first scene together.

  • - In season two, you really got

  • to see my character get fleshed out

  • and really understand more of her backstory

  • and who she was and what her relationship was with John.

  • And then in season three, we took that to the next level.

  • It was really exciting to see more of that.

  • And also that I got to cross paths with other characters

  • and into other parts of the Yellowstone world

  • where typically the governor doesn't go.

  • - Often, I feel like Governor Perry steps in

  • to take care of Jamie, help advance him

  • 'cause she sees promise in him.

  • More than that, as a politician, she can use him.

  • (laughing)

  • - And we do all this with what goal in mind?

  • - To negotiate an acceptable surrender.

  • - Money speaks louder than anything in this country.

  • They're wanting to build an airport,

  • basically a city, where the ranch is.

  • And any sensible human being would take the money.

  • But of course that's not who we are or who he is

  • and we're gonna hold onto it, but that means fighting.

  • It's not a person.

  • It's this sort of invisible tsunami of power.

  • I drive this road every single day.

  • You're never here and now you're here every day

  • while attorneys decide what properties to condemn.

  • - People see him as a villain from one perspective.

  • But from my perspective, he is inevitable.

  • And to progress, you will run into a Roarke eventually.

  • He's bigger.

  • This is what he does.

  • People make toast for breakfast.

  • He crushes companies and makes cities.

  • So it's absolutely normal for him to do this.

  • And he knows that he's bringing so many jobs

  • and so much financial influence to an area

  • that if the people don't want to sell,

  • they'll just condemn it anyway.

  • So it's kind of like that,

  • the truth that is inevitable.

  • (upbeat country music)

  • - Oh shit, Jimmy!

  • - It's really amazing for Jimmy I think

  • to have found this sense of identity in rodeo

  • and to have found this sort of sense of pride.

  • Since he was a kid he's been told and shown

  • over and over again that he's a piece of shit.

  • So like to be able to feel that pride in himself

  • and then to have that affirmed by his like newfound family,

  • by this new community, for John Dutton to show up

  • to watch Jimmy rodeo is like the closest thing

  • to Jimmy's dad showing up to a tee-ball game

  • that he's ever felt in his life.

  • Like I think it's profoundly meaningful for him.

  • And all of that just goes right

  • out the window the second he meets Mia.

  • As soon as he sees Mia,

  • I think he forgets that John Dutton's even there.

  • John Dutton and Rip had been the center of Jimmy's world.

  • And then as soon as he sees Mia,

  • I think they just go right out of his head.

  • - Mia is a barrel racer that met Jamie at a rodeo.

  • And she's somebody that's like very sure of herself,

  • very decisive, very grounded in what she wants

  • and who she is.

  • - I'm trying really hard to think of something

  • to say and just nothing's coming out.

  • - You could ask me on a date.

  • - She only knows him in the context of the thing

  • that brings him the most pride in himself

  • and the thing that makes him feel most like a person

  • with something to offer.

  • - Jimmy!

  • - That your dad?

  • - Kinda, yeah.

  • To see himself through her eyes,

  • I think is like an incredible thing for Jimmy.

  • - Good luck!

  • I think the initial interest sort of came

  • from him as a bronc rider and like his talent.

  • But I do think that when they have the moment

  • of like first meeting eyes and seeing each other,

  • I do think that there's this sort

  • of like miraculous thing that happens.

  • Jimmy's a little taken aback by her directness but.

  • - He has tremendous respect for these various rodeo sports.

  • And then to see that she's an athlete,

  • that she like lives and breathes this lifestyle,

  • I think that he looks up to her in a lot of ways.

  • Like he's just getting started

  • in the rodeo world and he sees her

  • and he imagines this whole other life,

  • this life in the rodeo, people that value him

  • for what he values in himself.

  • - It's that moment that you like can't deny

  • and you need to just follow your heart.

  • And I think that happens for the both of them,

  • but especially her.

  • Having the first little moment with Jeff

  • and then them just putting me on a horse

  • and giving me a flag and saying,

  • "Okay, run around the arena" in front

  • of these like pretty legit like extras

  • that have seen plenty of rodeos

  • and are watching me do this and are probably like,

  • "Oh my God."

  • (whistling, cheering)

  • But it was really lucky

  • because it couldn't have gone better and smoother.

  • And it's really nice when there's sort of

  • already a family dynamic in place with cast.

  • And it's even better when, when they're so welcoming

  • because you just get to sort of fall into their arms.

  • (dramatic music, cheering)
