  • - That land is mine.

  • - Say that as much as you can.

  • That land is mine.

  • Get it all out of your system.

  • - There's a difference in Jamie after all of this.

  • He's always doing it not for his job,

  • but for his heart.

  • He was protecting them

  • and the things they wanted.

  • And those people have been terrible to him,

  • and now he doesn't have to do that anymore.

  • I'm not your son.

  • I don't have to.

  • Everyone makes their play for the ranch.

  • And already the impact is felt.

  • You know, Beth's run into troubles with filings.

  • - I have power of attorney over the estate.

  • - If the estate were in Utah.

  • Business is not law.

  • In fact, they're very contradictory.

  • The state of Montana does not recognize

  • power of attorney issued by other states.

  • - Then you see it start to fall away.

  • You start to see the sweat.

  • - That many moving parts,

  • that many people in a room with,

  • and that much power in the room.

  • And different perspectives.

  • The governor, Roarke and Willa.

  • - There are a lot of different people coming in now,

  • a lot of chess pieces.

  • It doesn't stay calm for long.

  • - There were moments in that scene with him

  • where you know it's gonna get juicy.

  • - Thomas Rainwater is there as well.

  • This is the moment.

  • - Of course Jamie is sitting with a lot

  • of new information about his family.

  • And of course none of us know that.

  • But it's very weighted for him in a way,

  • and he's responding to everybody in the room

  • in a kind of a different way.

  • - It was Willa and Angela

  • and Beth and myself all in the room.

  • And I loved it.

  • And it just felt right,

  • and felt fun and strong.

  • And I think that the women are watching,

  • viewers watching, are going to respond to that as well.

  • - So that is a tricky scene,

  • a chess match.

  • - Willa sits across from Beth,

  • with the full knowledge that she has put her down.

  • And then of course Rainwater is behind us.

  • - Can I see the environmental impact report?

  • - They're there to represent their interests,

  • which I think we know about it.

  • We don't know that they're gonna

  • put a curve ball in the room.

  • - All the gang will be there.

  • - When we go into this meeting

  • thinking, you know, we have this sewn up.

  • We've got everything in place, piece of cake,

  • let's just get this done.

  • And then the cards start to drop on the table

  • so then it becomes a beautiful poker match.

  • - I need to step out for a moment.

  • - It started out a certain way,

  • and it took a left,

  • and it's going somewhere really fiery

  • and interesting.

  • You can just see it in the moments in those scenes.

  • - The state has to move ahead

  • with eminent domain if you don't take the offer.

  • Everything happens.

  • The state says they're gonna make their play.

  • As attorney general, I try to make my play

  • for keeping the ranch for John.

  • And then Rainwater comes in

  • and makes the final sort of push.

  • - That's your angle too, John.

  • How does this impact your land?

  • - Native Americans and the cowboys

  • are coming together to fight the bigger giant.

  • It's in the history books, isn't it?

  • I mean history just repeats itself.

  • - Beth is just,

  • she's out there.

  • She doesn't hold anything back.

  • - Well I'm all fucking ears.

  • - Just seeing the contrast culturally speaking

  • because everything's so big in the Dutton family.

  • I mean we're more grounded,

  • we're anchored.

  • You're seeing some of the same dynamic

  • just from different points of view.

  • - You have an opportunity to free that land of him.

  • She's kind of playing two sides.

  • So while she is partnering up

  • beyond just helping the Dutton family

  • keep their land,

  • she wants the land back for her people

  • because this is actually their ancestral territory,

  • this is their land.

  • She also has her own agenda.

  • There's always something below the surface

  • that's there.

  • Kill him, and give us our land back.

  • - You don't know what to expect

  • because we've got so many personalities and individuals.

  • - So we have to up the stakes.

  • - We're hanging off a cliff there.

  • - Don't feel much like a land deal in Montana, does it?

  • - No, it feels like an oil deal in Yemen.

  • And from now on that's how we treat it.

  • - People are starting to take sides.

  • Some people are just screaming for blood.

  • Once they get enough of it in Yellowstone they want more.

  • - To now have an audience who are with you in the trenches.

  • - We work really hard on this,

  • and we all love it.

  • - It becomes an event every week.

  • - We hate Beth's office.

  • A lot of things happen in Beth's office.

  • Last season we busted it up a little bit.

  • This season we'll really do it.

  • So this is the special effects department.

  • This is our fabrication shop.

  • Because of that location there's no pyro.

  • We did it all with air.

  • He initiates the button,

  • the valve opens up.

  • The more you walk a scene like that through

  • with the director,

  • it'll change as it goes,

  • and it'll get more precise.

  • They understand action.

  • - Initially it's like God man,

  • this is like kind of creepy and weird, but beautiful.

  • They have to understand this guy doesn't have any money.

  • And whatever money he has, you know,

  • he gives it to the grave digger.

  • He wants to give her a ring

  • so he takes it,

  • and, you know, his mom's obviously

  • somebody that he loved and respected.

  • And I think that by giving Beth that ring

  • it brings potentially, in his mind,

  • you know, them closer together.

  • I mean there's a ton

  • of colors in it.

  • I don't really ever question Taylor.

  • I think he likes to push me in certain areas

  • and see how I react to certain stuff on camera,

  • which I love.

  • In the end it's a beautiful moment.

  • - Who'd you kill?

  • - Don't ask me that, Beth.

  • There's no secret to what Rip does.

  • She knows what Rip does.

  • She knows who he is.

  • She knows why he does what he does

  • for her father.

  • There's no great secret.

  • He has this great ability

  • to be able to compartmentalize in reality,

  • and being able to draw a line in the sand,

  • and this needs to be done.

  • And I think that's what makes him special to John.

  • That train only runs in one direction.

  • He's this guy who goes out

  • and gets rid of problems,

  • but at the same time too

  • is also a son of his.

  • Let me know if you need anything.

  • - To see Teeter, Colby,

  • all those characters so caught up
