Yellowstone Season 2 began with strong ratings. It looks like the show will continue garnering more views in Episode 2 after Dan Jenkins (Danny Huston) managed to survive and Kayce (Luke Grimes) and Rip's (Cole Hauser) fight.
"Kayce and Rip come to blows. Beth (Kelly Reilly) starts buying up land to protect the ranch," Yellowstone Season 2 Episode 2 official synopsis read. "Monica (Kelsey Asbille) begins a new chapter at the university."
In the previous season finale, Dan was left hanging and fighting for his life. In the Season 2 premiere, it appeared he did survive, but he might not live too long after John Dutton (Kevin Costner) threatened to hang him again and would never cut him down.
In an interview with TV Insider, via St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Huston revealed his character is trying to fight his enemies using the book of the law. He is still following his principles, but he is starting to doubt if it is still possible to stay to his self. Dan will also be questioning himself if he will be turning.
Huston explained that when Dan has a greater enemy, he might end up having to join forces with people he doesn't like. However, it would never be as simple as that.
He also teased there would be new characters coming to Yellowstone Season 2, and they would be "quite sinister." However, he couldn't reveal their names yet, but hinted they would be a significant threat. "To make enemies require an alliance to beat a bigger enemy," he said.
Meanwhile, Paramount Network has dropped official photos of Yellowstone Season 2 Episode 2, revealing some major hints of what would happen next. In the snaps, via Daily Caller, Rip and Kayce are seen getting into a brawl.
After the previous season premiere, it is not a surprise that the two gets in a fight with all the tension surrounding them. In Season 1, they also got into a brawl, and Rip won at the time. So, who will win this time?
In another snap, Monica seems to be blankly staring to nowhere and deeply thinking about something. There is also a picture of Rip and Beth having a conversation in Yellowstone Season 2 Episode 2.
Yellowstone Season 2 Episode 2, "New Beginnings," will be out on Wednesday, June 26, at 10 p.m. ET on Paramount Network. The network also renewed the show for Season 3 ahead of Season 2 premiere.
