Yellowstone Season 5 - Episode 5
Episode 5 of Yellowstone's fifth season introduces viewers to branding season, that most wonderful time of year when the Duttons must run their cattle down from the mountains and round them up to be marked.
Yellowstone Season 5 - Episode 5
Following the dysfunctional family dinner, John and Rip enjoy drinks by the fire. Rip listens while Dutton waxes poetically about power, family, and the cowards that rule the world. In talking about his children, he subtly refers to Jamie as the one he "regrets." He seems particularly down on his adopted son this episode, as earlier he also refers to Kayce as his "only" son.
It's a peaceful, almost happy ending for a series whose episodes typically conclude with some sort of simmering conflict or nail-biting cliffhanger. Of course, the aptly titled "Watch 'Em Ride Away" is surely just setting the stage for the turmoil and tragedy that'll undoubtedly return like a stampede next week.
Fans of the show must realize how intentionally antagonistic Summer is in this episode. So much so, it became forced and borderline unnatural. Never before was she this purposefully rude or ignorant, even mocking another fan-favorite, Gator (Gabriel Guilbeau). While her political or dietary views may differ, prior to this episode Summer has always tried to address both sides of the spectrum, which is what made her relationship with John so interesting. It seemed that since Sheridan had made up his mind that there had to be a fight, he hurriedly threw gasoline onto the flames to force combustion.
An episode with everyone on horses together ends up with John Dutton having to tell a woman that her husband is dead, and it really does make you stop and just ask yourself what is happening on this show.
Is Emmett's death the turning point heading into the unknown second half of the season? Quiet as it is, will it somehow usher in whatever the big problem for the Duttons will be? Or will this somehow be a season where John Dutton and his family aren't fighting against someone for the rights to their ranch and land? Is this death a symbol of what is to come with how sudden it is? All of these questions and more rise to the forefront considering how Emmett's loss happened out of nowhere, and it could very well make for an interesting second half of the season. If "Cigarettes, Whiskey, A Meadow, and You" can be one of the most calming episodes of Yellowstone and end in sudden death, who knows what is to come for the rest of Season 5?
Yellowstone is cable's most popular TV series. The Kevin Costner-led neo-Western continues to be a massive hit in Season 5, averaging about 8 million viewers per episode, according to ratings tracking site TV Series Finale. That's an extraordinary number for a cable series in 2022. Since it's hard to find on streaming, people tune in to watch it live. The Paramount Network loves it. Dodge and Tractor Supply are paying big bucks for those advertising slots.
Season 5 will take Christmas off and return for the eighth episode of the season on Jan. 1 before taking a midseason break. Here's everything we know about Yellowstone Season 5, including the latest news, release date, cast details, and trailers.
The "next time on Yellowstone" promo for Episode 8 confirmed that the Jan. 1 episode will be the midseason finale. It will find power-hungry Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) declaring war on his family by announcing that he's seeking to impeach his father for failing in his duties as governor. Paramount Network has not announced how long the hiatus will be before Yellowstone returns with Episode 9 and the second half of the season.
Yellowstone returned to Paramount Network for Season 5 on Sunday, Nov. 13 with the first two episodes, "One Hundred Years is Nothing" and "The Sting of Wisdom," back to back. Subsequent episodes air weekly. Season 5 will consist of 14 episodes, divided up into two chunks. The eight-episode Part 1 ends on Jan. 1. A release date for Part 2 has not yet been announced.
After four seasons of manipulation, scheming, and fighting for power against the backdrop Montana's relatively untouched beauty, new governor John Dutton is now calling the shots, with Beth (Kelly Reilly) running the show behind him. His intentions are clear in the two-part premiere of Season 5. The ranch hands have not changed their ways, despite John's new gig, which makes for some of the best scenes in these premiere episodes.

Paramount+ dropped an "Inside Yellowstone Season 5" video on Oct. 31, with Sheridan and the cast talking candidly about what to expect in the new season. "John has proven time and again there's nothing he won't do to save the ranch," Kevin Costner said, adding, "He's more than ready to make a decision that doesn't land popularly." You can watch the video below.
Yellowstone is an American neo-Western drama television series created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson that premiered on June 20, 2018, on Paramount Network. The series stars Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, and Gil Birmingham. The series follows the conflicts along the shared borders of the Yellowstone Ranch, a large cattle ranch, the Broken Rock Indian reservation, Yellowstone National Park and land developers. The first part of the fifth season premiered on November 13, 2022, with the second part premiering in 2023.
In 2013, Sheridan began work on the series, having recently grown tired of acting and begun writing screenplays. Having lived in the rural parts of states such as Texas and Wyoming, Sheridan set the series in Montana and went about writing the first scripts in Livingston. Sheridan initially pitched the series to HBO, but the network declined. The series follows the Dutton family, owners of the largest ranch in Montana, the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch, commonly called "the Yellowstone". The plot revolves around family drama at the ranch and the bordering Broken Rock Indian Reservation, Yellowstone National Park, and developers. In May 2017, Paramount Network announced that it had greenlit its first scripted series, Yellowstone. Paramount issued a series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. The series was set to be written, directed, and executive-produced by Sheridan.

The series was set to be written, directed, and executive-produced by Sheridan. Other executive producers were to include John Linson, Art Linson, Harvey Weinstein, and David Glasser. Production companies involved with the series were set to consist of Linson Entertainment and The Weinstein Company.
In July 2018, it was announced that Paramount Network had renewed the series for a second season that was expected to premiere in 2019. In March 2019, it was announced that the second season would premiere on June 19, 2019. In June 2019, the series was renewed by Paramount for a third season, which premiered on June 21, 2020. In February 2020, Paramount Network renewed the series for a fourth season, ahead of the premiere of its third season. The fourth season premiered on November 7, 2021. In February 2022, Paramount Network renewed the series for a fifth season, which will be split into two installments. The fifth season premiered on November 13, 2022.
In November 2017, it was announced that Michaela Conlin and Josh Lucas had been added to the cast in recurring roles. In December 2017, it was reported that Heather Hemmens was joining the cast in a recurring capacity. In June 2018, it was announced that Barret Swatek had been cast in a recurring role.

A teaser trailer for the series was released on February 28, 2018, with the first full trailer being released on April 26.

The first season was released on Blu-ray and DVD on December 4, 2018.
NBCUniversal's Peacock acquired the U.S. streaming rights to Yellowstone in 2020, with the first two seasons debuting in July of that year. Paramount Global President and CEO Bob Bakish has since called the timing of the deal "unfortunate"; due to the show's improved reception, viewership, and popularity in its later seasons. Critics have noted that Yellowstone's absence from Paramount's own, similarly named streaming service, Paramount+ (in-spite of the show's spinoffs being produced for the service), in addition to current seasons available on Paramount Network's app and website primarily through TV Everywhere (requiring a paid television subscription), have caused confusion among viewers and the show's fans on social media.
Full episodes and seasons of Yellowstone are available for purchase on all major digital entertainment distribution stores in the U.S., with Amazon's Prime Video streaming new episodes in Canada the day after their U.S. broadcast on Paramount Network. Starting with the fifth season, it will be moved to Paramount+ in Canada, and the UK, and to SkyShowtime in any territories where the service is already available. As with the previous seasons in Canada, new episodes will be released the day after the U.S. airing. 041b061a72
