“Yellowstone” fans, of course, know things got very complicated, very quickly for Beth Dutton and Rip Wheeler when they were teens. In fact, their passions back then resulted in — with the aid of a bafflingly wrong-headed call from Beth’s brother Jamie Dutton — a life-altering course of action for the young woman. Still, the brief look at Beth’s and Rip’s early days really hit home the legions of “Yellowstone” fans enamored with the fiery, yet tender-hearted relationship.
Screen Rant indeed praised the flashback scene during a recent interview with Cole Hauser. The interviewer went on to say how much they enjoyed a new Season 5 flashback that reportedly features one of Beth’s and Rip’s first dates. Turns out, Hauser enjoys those flashbacks as much as anyone. “I don’t know how the audience feels,” the actor said. “But I love, and I think Kelly [Reilly] would agree, the idea of going back in their pasts and seeing what kind of made them get to where they are, and the comfortableness they have together.”
Hauser went on to acknowledge there may be more flashbacks to come in the new season of “Yellowstone.” “There is more of it,” the actor said. “And I love that Taylor [Sheridan] wrote it.” More than that, Hauser thinks fans of the series will thoroughly enjoy the coming flashbacks, noting, “I’m excited for the audience to see more of the past when it comes to them.” And if you call yourself a fan of “Yellowstone,” you really should be stoked to see more of young Beth and Rip falling madly in love.
