Yellowstone season 4: Will Rip Wheeler team up with Kayce Dutton for revenge?
Yellowstone: Cole Hauser stars as ranch hand Rip Wheeler
Yellowstone season four is in the making for Paramount Network and viewers are already certain Rip Wheeler (played by Cole Hauser) will get his revenge. Both John Dutton (Kevin Costner) and Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) were left for dead after they were attacked by anonymous assassins. Fans are wondering whether Rip will join forces with Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) to make the perpetrators pay for what they did.
Will Rip Wheeler team up with Kayce Dutton?
Yellowstone season four will reveal the fates of Kayce, John and Beth Dutton after they were all attacked in the season three finale.
An explosive device had been sent to Beth’s office and as she was caught up in the explosion, fans feared she had died.
John was targeted in a drive-by shooting and although viewers are sure he pulled through, his role as head of the family is likely to have been impeded.
A group of gunmen also made their way to Kayce’s office, and he was able to take cover just in time.
Rip and Kayce have never seen eye to eye, but there is a chance they will settle their differences and team up to avenge their family.
The pair have had a turbulent relationship throughout the series, as Rip has always been John’s best chance of support, even though they are not related by blood.
Kayce may be John’s estranged son, but his loyalty to the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch has wavered in the past, particularly after he married Monica (Kelsey Asbille) whose family derived from the Broken Rock Indian Reservation.
Rip actor Hauser previously explained how both Rip and Kayce see themselves as the alpha males, which means there is a strong personality clash.
There will always be an element of brotherly love as the pair have always been able to settle their differences, but they are not afraid to fight things out.
Season two saw an epic fight between Rip and Kayce, but season four may see the tables turn as they are both left to fight for their family, rather than themselves.
Fans have taken to Reddit to discuss the prospect of Rip and Kayce joining forces to get their revenge in season four.
They have already suggested Rip will go on a rampage and finally let loose at the start of the fourth season, as he has plenty of bottled-up rage.
Adorable_Sweet9722 said: “Dude Rip is going to burn the whole of Montana to the ground for what they did to Beth and John and I personally can not wait to see it.
“If Taylor Sheridan doesn’t let Rip loose it’ll be highly disappointing. I think Kayce will end up teaming up with him to tear some s up bc with his military background and stuff he was ready with his gun before anyone even entered the room so I don’t think he’s going to be injured bad if at all. Beth idk how she survives that bomb. That s was nuts. [sic]”
Other fans have supported the theory, with one saying Kayce and Rip will “team up to stack bodies like firewood”.

However others do not agree on this direction for the new season, with MontanaJoev saying: “As much fun as it would be to see Rip and Kayce go all scorched earth on people (and for me, it would be much more fun with Kayce, because I think that’s the real character we’ve only scratched the surface of in terms of what he’s capable of), I just don’t expect that to be the direction.
“I expect if Market Equities is the Big Bad that ordered these hits, then what we are far more likely to go is a lot of strategy in figuring it out, then finding a way to take them out while not collapsing the whole Dutton empire.
“I feel like we’ve already seen Rip unleashed, personally. He kind of is what he is. And him going around, killing people willy-nilly is not really sustainable.
“I’m sure there will be killing, but I don’t think we’re getting a Godfather-like massive wipe-out of the opposing team.”
There have been theories suggesting Rip will leave the ranch altogether after finding out what happened to Beth.
Fans believe Rip will be the one to find John Dutton injured, and he will take him to the hospital, saving his life.
They have suggested he may see Beth at the hospital, and this will be the moment he finds out about the explosive sent to her office.
Viewers are keen to see Rip’s reaction to the news, as many are keen to see another war break out between families.
Whether Kayce is involved or not is another question, as he too had been targeted by a group of assassins.
He is understood to be alive, having flipped a table over to protect himself from the bullets, but fans will have to wait and see whether he teams up with Rip to take action.
