  • - You guys wanna hear a joke?

  • - [Workers] No.

  • (country rock music)

  • - Dang guys, it's great to see you.

  • Holy cow.

  • - Welcome back, gentlemen.

  • - We're back.

  • - It's good to be home.

  • - It's almost like we didn't leave.

  • - Hello.

  • This is how we sit when we're being professional.

  • - Three normal dudes sitting normally.

  • - Give me a recap of how the last season ended.

  • - Quickly, so the end of season two Tate

  • is kidnapped by the Beck Brothers.

  • John Dutton himself kills Malcolm Beck.

  • (gun firing)

  • Kayce kills Teal Beck.

  • (gun firing)

  • Dan Jenkins, pour one out.

  • - Wait.

  • (gun firing)

  • - Cowboy left, Walker left.

  • - Adios, assholes.

  • - And then we end up with getting Tate back.

  • - Yeah, disaster averted, but--

  • - Slightly.

  • - Yeah, exactly.

  • - There was still disaster.

  • - Tensions are sorta at an all time high

  • I think between Kayce and Monica

  • whose son was suddenly pulled into this violence.

  • - Yeah, he's changed man.

  • He came back different.

  • He's got the thousand yard stare.

  • - Yeah man, he's seen some,

  • he's a kid but he's seen some...

  • - Sometimes I see him and he's

  • on the ceiling like The Exorcist.

  • - That's pretty--

  • - Honestly, I gotta let him heal.

  • - Well that'll be hard to do too

  • 'cause we're in tents for most of it.

  • - [Tate] This is how they used to do it, grandpa?

  • - Just like this.

  • - What's interesting about the way

  • we kick off this season, using the land.

  • The land has always been a weapon in our show.

  • In this episode we return to the land

  • as a sort of medicine to heal all of these relationships.

  • So we go out there, we set it up, we return to our roots.

  • That's real cowboy, that's where we came from.

  • It's a different tone and very much so paced

  • than the show normally runs at.

  • So we're gonna sit with that and I think it's gonna

  • make everything a little bit different.

  • - And it's also amazing because it's another way

  • in which art imitates life or life imitates art

  • 'cause when we shoot that stuff

  • we're up at Thousand Peaks, Utah.

  • We're a little bit far from civilization.

  • - And have no reception.

  • - You know, at night we're all waddled up.

  • It's a mile and a half to a porta potty.

  • It is very, it's an immersive acting experience, you know?

  • - Why don't you run up there.

  • See if you can steal some of Lloyd's kindling.

  • - [Jefferson] You ever chopped wood?

  • - I've chopped wood a couple times.

  • He can chop wood.

  • - Do you guys not remember the bonfires

  • that I had at the Angler's Lodge?

  • - You can chop wood.

  • - I can split wood like a mofo.

  • - [Denim] Wow, that's crazy.

  • - Yeah, I'm quite handy with an ax.

  • - Yeah.

  • - I can actually throw one too.

  • We have a throwing receiver pedestal

  • at the base camp in Darby.

  • You never noticed that?

  • - Yeah, I have noticed that.

  • - That's for ax throwing.

  • - "Receiver pedestal."

  • It's a very technical sport.

  • - Can you chop wood?

  • - Absolutely not.

  • - [Denim] Could you survive in the woods?

  • - I feel like I could see you at a gym

  • doing an exercise that's simulating chopping wood.

  • - That simulates...

  • - Yeah, they have it with the cables

  • and you call it the Wood Chopper.

  • - It's like the ropes.

  • Forrie J. Smith, you don't have to call action

  • for him to start splitting wood.

  • That dude started splitting wood

  • the second we got out there--

  • - It's like we're out of wood, bro.

  • And now he's making kindling.

  • - They built the scene around him.

  • It's like well Forrie's cutting some wood,

  • so let's go over there and I guess we'll shoot that.

  • - Yee-haw!

  • - Speak of the devil.

  • How are you, Forrie?

  • You doing all right?

  • There he is.

  • Every morning, you guys know this,

  • it's usually cold and wet or dark

  • or a combination of all that

  • and people are pretty uncomfortable.

  • And you see this guy and his face is like

  • we're going to work!

  • - Just super excited. - I'm doing great!

  • - It was the first season.

  • I came on set and Kevin was like I knew you were here.

  • I said yeah?

  • What, did you look at the call?

  • No, I heard the yee-haw when you got out of the van.

  • (laughing)

  • Yee-haw!

  • - You get excited playing Lloyd still?

  • The way that you did the first time you started?

  • - Yeah, I get excited getting to work with you guys.

  • We've all got our little niche now.

  • - Is there like a mechanical bull

  • or something that I could try first?

  • (laughing)

  • - Mechanical bulls are for drunk chicks at the county fair.

  • - You have taught me so much as Jimmy gets into rodeo

  • because Lloyd rodeoed, but also

  • Forrie J. Smith rodeoed a lot.

  • Will you talk a little bit about your background

  • in rodeo and how experiences that you've had

  • on set have related to your personal experiences?

  • - Yeah, I was raised in rodeo.

  • My grandfather rodeoed back when they circled the cars.

  • Turned the lights on, they didn't have lights,

  • and they snubbed the horse out

  • in the middle of the arena and they camped.

  • My real father's in the Canadian Cowboy Hall of Fame.

  • I'm a product of rodeo.

  • As a kid I was kinda an outlaw.

  • Rodeo, when I went behind the chute,

  • a juvenile probation officer, principals,

  • or whoever was on you at that time,

  • this is out of your realm.

  • This is my world now.

  • I use a lot of things that I learned

  • from rodeo as an actor.

  • I use the attitude.

  • If you're doubtful when you get behind the chutes,

  • if there's negative thoughts in your mind,

  • they're gonna come out at the wrong time

  • and you could get maimed or hurt bad.

  • You learn how to not be negative

  • and think negative thoughts.

  • Pray like hell and hold on.

  • - What would you say then, rodeoing, what was

  • the worst injury that happened to you personally?

  • 'Cause I remember you telling me a story

  • about you breaking your pelvis

  • and duct taping it back together.

  • (laughing)

  • 'Cause you didn't wanna go to the hospital

  • 'cause you wanted to stay on the circuit.

  • - You think tape can keep you in the saddle?

  • Yeah.

  • - So still to this day that blows my mind.

  • Is there anything that could possibly be worse than that?

  • - Did you ever get that looked at medically?

  • Or did that, we just sorta like...

  • - Later on.

  • (laughing)

  • They were taking some x-rays and they

  • were like oh, when did you break this?

  • When did you break that vertebrae?

  • You didn't get paid if you didn't get on.

  • Get on the bucking horse and you're not

  • feeling the pain, you're focused.

  • 'Cause this one can hurt you again.

  • So you better have your mind on it.

  • - You know why you never met any old rodeo cowboys?

  • 'Cause there ain't any.

  • - I'm old.

  • - You just look old, motherfucker.

  • (laughing)

  • - Can you tell us the most cowboy shit you've ever seen?

  • - Okay, here's one of the cowboyest thing I've ever seen.

  • Forgot about this.

  • At Gibbs Ranch in Texas.

  • Boss was Jimmy Riggs.

  • Texans seem to have a problem saying

  • Forrie so they called me Montana.

  • (laughing)

  • "Montana, you're pretty good with that rope.

  • "We've got a steer we need to catch."

  • And the steer always came out

  • of this thicket in the same spot.

  • About the closest they got to him

  • was from here to that gray door.

  • And I should've thrown my rope then

  • 'cause he run off and he ended up

  • out in the middle of the interstate.

  • Started up the medium.

  • Jumped my horse in the trailer.

  • They drop me off in-between the freeways

  • and they drove up and got in front of me

  • and run him back at me.

  • Here comes this big five year old steer,

  • horns like this on him, big as the horse I'm on.

  • I got a rope 'em.

  • (laughing)

  • And the horse jumped out of his way as he

  • went by and I what we call half-headed him.

  • I got one horn and his head.

  • People are stopping on the side of the roads

  • taking pictures, and we got him loaded in the trailer

  • and tied him to the front of the trailer.

  • - That is some cowboy shit.

  • (country rock music)

  • (hollering)

  • - One!

  • Two!

  • Three!

  • - Forrie said, we asked him about dizzy bat

  • and he's like "I ain't never heard of that shit."

  • So I don't think it's a real cowboy game.

  • - It's not really that much fun.

  • - It's horrible, let's be honest.

  • When you're doing it.

  • - You can't fake it.

  • Like you can't pretend to play dizzy bats.

  • You run around that fucking bat, you're dizzy.

  • You're not acting.

  • (hollering)

  • Also Wes Bentley, he was doing his own stunt there.

  • He was fully fucking fall on his face.

  • - Well he's athletic, and then they realized

  • hey, you're doing this too well.

  • - Well that's, his character's like in the bunkhouse.

  • He's gotta prove himself.

  • He's gotta be better, work harder, get up earlier.

  • I think prove himself, so he's like I'll do anything.

  • - Yup.

  • (cheering)

  • - Which I think made it kinda fun

  • to kinda see that different side of him.

  • - Jamie always had these responsibilities

  • on the ranch from the time he was a young man.

  • I think it's beautiful in some ways

  • to see Jamie sitting with the boys

  • and playing poker and playing dizzy bat.

  • It's sorta just doing all this stupid

  • goof around bullshit that he never got to do.

  • - Yeah, where it's not so buttoned up.

  • - It's really nice to see him get to loosen up.

  • (laughing)

  • - Show us how you feel!

  • - I think it's funny 'cause in that sequence

  • you rope him, he goes down hard.

  • - Oh!
