Yellowstone season 4 theories: Jamie’s real mother to be unveiled as John’s sister
Yellowstone: Ryan Bingham discusses character Walker in 2019
Distant son Jamie Dutton was devastated to discover his true origins in the latest season of Yellowstone. After meeting his estranged biological father, some fans of the Paramount Western are convinced his journey of self-discovery is far from over.
A new theory has proposed Jamie Dutton (played by Wes Bentley) will uncover another game-changing secret about his hidden parentage in the next season of Yellowstone.
During some of the most pivotal moments of the latest season, Jamie unearthed his birth records to discover ranch owner John Dutton (Kevin Costner) is not his biological father.
He then accosted his real dad, Garrett Randall (Will Patton), who confessed to killing Jamie’s mother. Phyllis, when she had succumbed to drug addiction and chose to sell her body for money.
With Jamie’s mind in a tailspin, and the fate of the rest of the family on tenterhooks after the season finale, fans are anticipating even more exhilarating twists and turns for season four.

As production for Yellowstone’s next outing continues in Montana, fans took to Reddit to discuss further possibilities for Jamie when the show returns.
One perceptive viewer realised Jamie’s real mother was probably connected to the Dutton ranch in some way, thanks to his candid conversation with his adoptive father, John.
Redditor Luvsplants123 posted: “So who do you think Jamie’s real mother is?
“When John told Jamie about his mother, he stated they tried to warn her. Is she John’s sister, a relative, or Evelyn’s sister or relative?”
This fan proposed Jamie’s mother could have been related to John, potentially making Jamie his nephew and related to the Duttons by blood after all.
Moreover, she could have been related to John’s late wife Evelyn (Gretchen Mol), who was shown to have been crushed by a horse during a tragic flashback in the first season.
While Jamie continues to struggle to find his place on the ranch, this discovery could give him a greater sense of much-needed security as the Dutton family becomes increasingly fractured.
Then again, another fan pointed out Jamie’s mother isn’t buried in the family plot, so most likely isn’t directly related to the Duttons.

Other viewers reasoned that, despite largely taking place on the biggest contiguous ranch in the United States, the Yellowstone is neighboured by a relatively small community.
One fan elaborated: “I don’t think she was related to them in any way, I just think because it was a small town they all knew each other and she was a friend of the family.
“But who knows; that might end up coming up later but as of right now they haven’t really dove into who exactly she was.”
If Jamie’s real mother was, in fact, John’s sister, it certainly seems like a strange thing to keep hidden now the biggest secret is out in the open.
Garrett Roland was especially dismissive of Phyllis during his meeting with Jamie, so it’s unlikely she was anyone as significant as John Dutton’s sister.
The series frequently uses time jumps to slowly reveal more about the Duttons’ dark history, so Jamie’s biological mother could very well appear beyond the grave in season four.
However, before Jamie’s history is finally told in full, fans are holding out hope for the survival of the rest of the family after a horrific series of attacks in the final moments of this year’s finale.
