The second episode of Yellowstone Season 4 begins much more calmly than the first. Jamie’s growing passion for Garrett caused John to go on a ride early in the morning as part of his physical therapy, leaving Carter to protect the barn.
Caroline Warner, played by Jacki Weaver, makes her first appearance in the second episode, and it feels like a breather before the next storm.
Caroline, the chairman of Market Equities, is interested in buying the ranch, and she intends to take it seriously.
Part 2 of the Season 4 debut on Sunday will recap “Phantom Pain.”

Following his death, John has began to consider his legacy, particularly beyond the Yellowstone valley.

Beth is fired from her job. Despite virtually burning for Schwartz & Meyer and earning them a fortune, Beth is fired.
She explains that the corporation only owns a piece of the land she bought for them near Yellowstone, threatening to pull the company down with it, as well as Bob.
When Beth returns to the property, she is confronted by cops who have detained a child for attempting to rob a liquor store with a screwdriver.
The child claims to be Beth’s guardian and reveals himself to be the young boy Beth met at the hospital. With little hope for the boy’s future, Beth considers adopting him and attempting to provide for him.
When Rip gets home, he discovers Beth has prepared a quick homemade meal for him and the baby. Rip is uninterested in caring for a child right away, so they try to figure out if the baby has a place on the ranch.

Jimmy may not be able to handle this difficult work and will have to leave his Yellowstone house and Mia behind.

And for a little moment, the three of them appear like a happy new family. However, it appears to be a brief reprieve until a new storm arrives.
Carter goes to the barn the next morning to clean the stalls, only to find John there first. Before the titles roll, John confirms that no one deserves this life, yet they all try nevertheless.
