Yellowstone: 9 Things To Remember Before Season 5

  Yellowstone: 9 Things To Remember Before Season 5 Before season 5 of Yellowstone is released in November, fans might want to recap some things that happened in season 4.Expectations are high for season 5, which is only bound to get better now that the battle for the Yellowstone Ranch is tougher than ever before. John Dutton's romance with the governor and Jamie's dad skills being put to the test are just some of the twists that made season 4 interesting. While there is a lot to look up to in the coming season, it is important to remember these important events from the previous seasons.

Kevin Costner‘s Yellowstone co-star Wes Bentley claims he injured his foot kicking a bear on a camping trip, but dissecting the fact from fiction is proving a little challenging. Bentley recently appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show to promote his series and when the host ask him what happened, he said he “roundhouse kicked” a bear that attacked his family during a camping trip. He then joked that the beast was emotionally hurt by the conflict, and that he let it stay with the family and eat for a while.

Before telling the story, Wes Bentley asked Clarkson, “do you want the real story or do you want the cool story?” Clarkson choose the cool version, which might suggest that nothing Bentley said is true and yet this isn’t the first time the Yellowstone star has told this particular tale. As reported by The Express earlier this month at the premiere of his show’s fifth season, Bentley told the same story when asked about his injured foot. Other interviews with the man who plays Jamie Dutton have yielded the same strange tale.

Luke Grimes, Wes Bentley and Kelsey Asbille were among the stars of the show who hit the red carpet at the premiere, held at the Walter Reade Theater in New York City.They were joined by co-stars Gil Birmingham, Cole Hauser and Kai Caster at the event, ahead of the premiere debuting Sunday, November 13.

We’re left to assume one of two things is true: either Yellowstone‘s Wes Bentley did injure his foot in a confrontation with a bear, or Yellowstone‘s Wes Bentley is really, really bad at coming up with new jokes. Then again, if his injury is the result of a bear, we would wonder what he meant by asking Kelly Clarkson if she wanted the “real story or the cool story.” It’s difficult to imagine any story involving getting hurt in a clash with a bear–and surviving–to be anything but unquestionably cool.

Of course it isn’t beyond the realm of possibility that Wes Bentley was attacked by a bear sometime after Yellowstone‘s fifth season wrapped. The beasts are occasionally known to get aggressive, like the 500 pound bear nicknamed Hank the Tank who was reportedly ransacking the Lake Tahoe region of California earlier this year. There was no word on citizens having martial arts battles with Hank as far as we can tell, however.

Regardless of what happened to Wes Bentley’s foot, it thankfully hasn’t had a negative impact on the performance of Yellowstone Season 5’s premiere. The new season opened this Sunday night on the Paramount Network, CMT, TV Land and Pop to some epic numbers. The premiere is thus far the most watched episode in the entire series.

In fact, the hunger for more Yellowstone is so intense it’s even impacting platforms Wes Bentley’s show isn’t even on. Fans mistakenly believing the Season 5 premiere would be streaming on Paramount+ crashed the streamer with their traffic.

What Does The Wolf Symbolize In Yellowstone? .
What's the symbolism of the wolf in Indigenous American tradition, and how is this relevant to the future of the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch?The wolf is the single most important symbol in Taylor Sheridan's Yellowstone. While the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch is propped up on the backs of horses and cattle, the wolf is a crucial symbol not just in Neo-Westerns, but in the indigenous cultures of the continental United States as well. Indigenous Americans have observed for millennia that the way wolves live in packs as alpha predators - while taking only what they need - is reflective of the natural balance that humanity is supposed to preserve on Earth.
