Yellowstone Season 5 Episode 8 Recap: So, this is it, folks: “A Knife and No Coin” is the last Yellowstone episode until the summer (don’t worry, there’s still 1923 to keep you occupied). Indeed, such was the case. This season has been relatively mild compared to previous ones; after all, Kayce hasn’t even killed anyone yet. However, in addition to all the political manoeuvring, we’re relocating half the group to Texas and plotting not one but two killings. Things are proceeding normally, then.

Yellowstone Season 5 Episode 8 Recap
Flashbacks to Young Rip (Kyle Red Silverstein) and Young John (Josh Lucas) are still used to frame these episodes, which, based on my many years of watching TV, makes me think that Not-Young Rip won’t make it through the season. But this first chapter also gives some background on what will become a vital part of the current plot: the Duttons’ murder pit, codenamed “the train station,” where everyone ends up in one way or another if they try to steal the land or annoy one of the cowboys in a small way. The first person to be buried there was the cowboy Young Rip killed in Yellowstone Season 5 Episode 7 because he talked severely about Beth. As we’ve seen over many seasons, many other people will join him.
You’ll remember that Jamie’s father was one of the people who died, and Beth filmed how he was buried so that she could use the footage later. It turns out that Jamie waited until now to say that the trump card can’t be used. He chose the place with care. If Beth tells on him, her father’s skeletons will all come out of the closet. It’s an excellent way to connect the main story to the flashbacks, but it also asks us to believe that Beth didn’t know the ranchers were dropping bodies into that canyon, which is hard to believe, given what we know about her.
Since then, Jimmy has come back. He is still living with Emily, working at the 6666 Ranch, and having what, for Yellowstone, is a pretty healthy relationship. This is a way to get them back on the show since half of the bunkhouse is already going to Texas. I wouldn’t say I liked this side plot the first time around, so I hope that Jimmy’s love life on Real Ranchers of Texas will be more enjoyable the second time around. But we’ll talk more about this in a bit.
In “A Knife and No Coin,” John is forced to run the government. He goes to the reservation to tell Rainwater’s supporters that he will stop the pipeline from being built under the drinking water reservoir. At the same time, Jamie gives a speech to the legislative body calling for John’s impeachment because of lost tourism revenue, which is a feeble reason.
This is an excellent example of cross-cutting, and it was done on purpose because John is, for once, clearly on the side of anti-capitalist good, while Jamie seems petty, self-serving, and mean. Yellowstone might not have a clear idea of right and wrong, but it has always been easy to figure out who we should be rooting for.
Yellowstone Season 5 Episode 8 Ending Explain
After hearing the news of the impeachment attempt from Summer, whom she now seems to dislike, Beth storms over to Jamie’s house to hit him with a rock until he resigns; he now reveals the devastating news that her kompromat is ineffective, which Beth does not take well. After hurling some insults at Sarah, she went straight to visit John and mentioned, very bluntly, that if there is a secret Dutton death pit, now would be a good time to put Jamie in it.
Jamie shares this train of thought. He has anticipated Beth’s following action. Continuing his lack of subtlety, he asks Sarah if she knows anyone who can teach him to take the offensive instead of the defensive. As a result, the Dutton siblings are actively conspiring to eliminate one another. It sounds like a good time to me!
