  • - Hey, what's up.

  • If you're anything like me, you're Jeff White. (laughs)

  • I've never ridden an elevator before.

  • I'm from Iowa.

  • Chilli-lime cashews, chilli-lime cashews.

  • (trumpet trills)

  • (grunts)

  • Hey, come on, come on.

  • (grunts)

  • Chilly-lime cashews, chilly-lime cashews,

  • chilly-lime cashews.

  • You know what I mean?

  • That's pretty cool, that's great.

  • (energetic rock music)

  • Welcome to the Yellowstone, episode four.

  • We're gonna talk about Yellowstone 104,

  • The Long Black Train, my personal favorite

  • episode and not just because it's got a lot of Jimmy stuff,

  • and the producers are signaling to me

  • that we only have five minutes.

  • Guys, come on, please?

  • Six minutes? - No.

  • - I'm getting a no.

  • - [Breia] You can do this.

  • You're going to get better each episode,

  • and by episode nine, you're gonna have this under control.

  • - Yeah, I'll do a less in depth reading of each episode.

  • Is that your goal? - Stop.

  • - Is that what you want?

  • If you want shallow dramaturgy, you got the wrong guy.

  • Five minutes here we go.

  • The very first thing that happens is that the tribal police

  • on the Broken Rock Reservation have uncovered the bodies

  • of the kidnappers that Kayce Dutton killed in 103.

  • So once again, Kayce Dutton's crimes coming back

  • to haunt him.

  • He might be in trouble.

  • Then the cows that were on the Broken Rock Reservation,

  • which set off the whole chaos of this season,

  • are back on the Yellowstone

  • and they're all the fuck over the place.

  • So the wranglers are working on wrangling them,

  • they're cowboying them to get them back where they need

  • to be to take care of them.

  • Gotta protect those cows.

  • Number one cowboy expert right here.

  • And while they're out there trying to wrangle those cows up,

  • Jimmy fuck it all up Hurdstrom manages to fall off his horse

  • and get effectively left behind,

  • but he's not the only one left behind.

  • There's also this little baby calf,

  • and Jimmy has this real gut check moment

  • where he has to decide if he's gonna just say fuck it

  • and head back and abandon this calf

  • or if he's gonna do some real cowboy shit

  • and bring that calf home back to its mama.

  • We don't know yet.

  • Dot, dot, dot, to be continued.

  • Don't forget that little thing.

  • And then, very tragically,

  • Kayce and Monica are still dealing with the aftermath

  • of Samantha Long's suicide.

  • So they're taking care of her kids,

  • their nieces and nephews,

  • and they're trying to figure out how they're gonna move forward,

  • and they're asking themselves some larger questions

  • like what's in their best interest

  • and their family's best interest whether it's responsible

  • to leave Tate in these conditions,

  • these very difficult conditions that they are living in

  • on the Res or if it makes more sense to take Tate

  • and go live at the Dutton Ranch,

  • which is basically like a giant cowboy-themed theme park

  • for a kid, right?

  • It's an amazing place for a kid to grow up,

  • and so they're asking themselves deep, ethical, horny,

  • horny?

  • (laughing)

  • Thorny, just a completely different meaning.

  • They're asking themselves some deep, ethical,

  • thorny questions about what makes the most sense

  • in terms of where they should be raising Tate.

  • Okay, and then, as they're contending with that stuff,

  • Rainwater comes by the house to see Kayce

  • and to put some pressure on Kayce a little bit.

  • So Kayce and Monica are, again, caught in the middle

  • of this conflict between the Duttons

  • and the Brocken Rock Reservation.

  • They're trying to figure out where they stand

  • and where their most important loyalties lie

  • which is an ongoing theme for them.

  • To get Tate out of the house so he doesn't have to be

  • around the aftermath of this tragedy,

  • they give Tate over to JD, John Dutton,

  • ask John Dutton to take care of him,

  • and within exactly 5 minutes, Tate falls in a river,

  • and John Dutton has to jump in to get him out,

  • and Tate bumps his head and almost gets hypothermia.

  • Yeah, not great, John Dutton,

  • but good for them to spend this quality time together.

  • So, Jimmy, as we mentioned before, has grabbed this calf,

  • brings it back to the ranch,

  • impresses everyone except for Fred,

  • who has a special enmity for Jimmy, fucking hates him,

  • and so after Jimmy brings this calf back, Fred bullies Jimmy

  • and deliberately picks a fight with him,

  • Jimmy, being tough and plucky but not super smart,

  • gets in a fight with Fred

  • and basically just gets his ass kicked

  • until Rip and Lloyd show up and kick the shit out of Fred,

  • and basically, for the first time,

  • show us what it means to wear the brand

  • and show us what it means to be a branded man

  • on the Yellowstone.

  • So we learn very importantly that to fuck with a branded man

  • is ill-advised and Rip says to Jimmy, "These other guys,

  • "these other wranglers, they come and go,

  • "but we're family.

  • "We belong to this place."

  • So we're starting to fill out what it means

  • to wear the brand, and Jimmy's starting to understand,

  • for the first time, exactly what he's signed up for.

  • So at the same time that all this crazy shit's going on,

  • the tribal police are putting pressure on Kayce.

  • There's a lot of stuff going on there.

  • Beth is still on her mission

  • to absolutely destroy Dan Jenkins

  • like a fucking, heat-seeking missile,

  • just blow up his whole life.

  • So she continues to basically invade has space

  • to go and seduce him in a kind

  • of strange psychosexual status game,

  • and she brings him to this bar where a very cool band,

  • Whiskey Myers, is playing.

  • Great band, I was really excited to get to know them

  • through the show, they rock, big fan.

  • Beth brings Dan Jenkins to this bar--

  • (phone chimes)

  • - [Breia] You were close.

  • - We are pretty close.

  • We're getting better.

  • So just take that sound out in post,

  • and then do it in a few seconds

  • when it's more convenient for us.

  • So Beth takes Dan Jenkins to this bar, basically

  • into cowboy ground zero,

  • where he gets the shit kicked out of him.

  • He gets punched by two guys consecutively

  • and eventually has to leave, and then Rip shows up

  • and Beth and Rip dance.

  • It's really sweet.

  • So their relationship is getting deeper and deeper,

  • and at the same time that that sweet moment is happening,

  • Fred, who has effectively quit his job

  • because he refuses to do low-man work,

  • gets taken and gets a ride from Lloyd to the train station

  • which we learned means he's killed.

  • To ride the long black train is to get killed.

  • Dang, that's a hard lesson.

  • A lesson that Fred learns the hard way,

  • and then at the very end of the episode,

  • sort of huge cliffhanger, Kayce gets arrested,

  • and we don't know exactly for what.

  • Kayce gets picked up by the cops.

  • What's going on?

  • He's got a number of bodies on him

  • so it's hard to say why he's been arrested,

  • but will find out soon enough.

  • Yeah, that's a recap of the whole episode.

  • That's all the major plot points.

  • So let's go through some important bits.

  • Episode MVP,

  • (air whooshing) episode MVP, Rip Wheeler.

  • This is a big Rip episode.

  • Rip comes to Jimmy's rescue,

  • has this beautiful speech about what it means

  • to wear the brand, and then also,

  • we get to see Rip and Beth deepening their relationship

  • at this bar, big Rip Wheeler episode.

  • My grandma's favorite line of the episode,

  • (air whooshing)

  • my grandma's favorite line of the episode,

  • "Gee, I fucking wonder, Jimmy," says Rip.

  • My grandma likes all the swearing on the show.

  • She keeps saying, "Hey, could you get them to swear more?"

  • Easter eggs,

  • (bell chimes) Couple fun Easter eggs

  • in this episode.

  • First appearance by Gator,

  • our craft services guy Who appears on the show.

  • he's in five episodes of the show.

  • He's an amazing chef.

  • In the opening montage of the episode,

  • there's this early-morning montage.

  • Gator is serving some food, and also,

  • you see you get an early peek at Tom Foran

  • whose an incredible, real-life horse trainer,

  • who you see for a brief moment in that early montage,

  • and then when Jimmy falls off the horse

  • and Jimmy's trying to get his horse back,

  • there was this whole sequence,

  • and at one point while they were trying

  • to figure out what the sequence was,

  • this horse actually got away, just kind of wandered off,

  • jogged away, and Forrie J. Smith really roped it

  • in real life, and that happened,

  • and they just happened to be rolling.

  • So then they blocked the scene around that happening

  • because Forrie J. Smith really did that shit in real life,

  • and they were like, "Oh, that was cool.

  • "Let's do that."

  • So that's a good Easter egg is

  • that Forrie J. Smith really roped that horse.

  • That was Easter eggs. (air whooshing)

  • Okay, here's another one.

  • Jefferson's favorite guest stars.

  • (bell chimes)

  • This episode has another amazing performance.

  • This isn't his first episode, it's his second,

  • by Buck Taylor, who's an amazing classic cowboy

  • and actor and incredible, real-life, Western artist.

  • He's an amazing artist and actor

  • and I think it's an episode for a special shout out

  • to Luke Peckinpah who plays Fred,

  • who is the nicest guy in the world

  • effectively playing a real asshole.

  • He's remarkable.

  • Luke, miss you, buddy

  • and just that also seamlessly ties

  • into our little in memoriam. (bell chimes)

  • In this episode, we lost Fred.

  • Pour one out for Fred.

  • Sorry, Fred.

  • That's not how Jimmy would've wanted it to go.

  • You know?

  • So, bummer on that.

  • Fred, miss you everyday, Luke.

  • What do you think, maybe do some questions from Instagram?

  • - [Breia] Let's do it.

  • - Hell yeah.

  • - [Breia] I'm not sure how to pronounce this one.

  • @wmwettengel, what's the best thing about living in Iowa?

  • - About living in Iowa?

  • Iowa's beautiful.

  • I grew up there so I was living in Iowa until I was 22,

  • and I didn't know it was beautiful until I left,

  • and now, every time I go back, it's so gorgeous.

  • In every direction, corn and soybeans and barns

  • and it's really cool.

  • There is also a thriving art scene in Iowa City

  • and around the state,

  • incredible filmmakers in Des Moines

  • and incredible musicians in Iowa.

  • It's an amazing place

  • and I think I've grown to appreciate it more

  • and more as I've gotten older.

  • I think growing up there was a specific experience,

  • but going back and visiting now is a real treat.
