Yellowstone episode 9 (finale) preview: ‘The Unraveling, Part 2’

Yellowstone episode 8Are you ready for Yellowstone episode 9 to come on the air? We certainly hope so, since we’re gearing up for an epic finale. It is a direct continuing of tonight’s “The Unraveling, Part 1,” and over the course of it we anticipate at least some closure to the stories that we’ve had for season 1. That includes of course everything from political campaigns to corporate control to John Dutton preserving some of the life that he’s found for himself. Characters have been threatened, characters have been manipulated, and by the end of the finale, characters could be in a position that they never fathomed previously.


What’s the most effective way for Yellowstone to tell the story of the finale? Other than just giving Kevin Costner and Kelly Reilly great material, we’d advice the series to find a way to both wrap up some season 1 stories while also giving a sense as to what season 2 could be about. Even if there is some epic, jaw-dropping cliffhanger at the end of the finale, we’re not sure that the series needs it at all. All it needs is an ending that feels true for these characters and gives you a sense as to what this series is all about: Family, identity, history, and place. Yellowstone is a place rooted in deep tradition, and that often does come in conflict with an ever-changing present and people out to undercut it.

No matter what happens at the end of season 1, we imagine that the team behind the scenes will have some good ideas cooked up for season 2. The Paramount Network almost certainly has some great ideas cooked up for the future, given that Yellowstone has shown itself already to be one of its most-successful series. It has proven itself to be worthy of its investment, and we feel like, in turn, the season 1 performance is an incentive to invest even more.
