The sixth episode of the fourth season of Yellowstone begins with Jimmy waking up to his new life at 6666 Ranch and expressing his loneliness and how unfamiliar he is with traditions and norms. Meanwhile, a child learns from the reservation that the barbed wire has been cut into a fence and stolen the horses. After the credits, Beth says she’s worried her dad didn’t call her back.
After speaking with Rip to take her on a trip once, she goes to the main house, where she meets Summer, who has just spent the night with her father. Beth and Summer immediately hold their heads, wave the knives, and eat breakfast in a row. John wished he was too old for that, but the three sit down for an incredibly awkward breakfast, where the Yellowstone chef struggles for the first time with a vegan and gluten-free diet.
Monica and Kayce visit their new home away from their families, agreeing to buy it. In the yard, Tate becomes friends with a dog who seems very happy with the property, and the whole family seems satisfied with their new place. It’s a sweet home moment that highlights another relationship drama in this episode.
Jamie, who prevented from confronting his father about Dutton’s attack in the last episode of his son’s surprise visit, finally tries to get him in. Garrett hardly acknowledges his involvement and doubles his status as Jamie’s birth father in an attempt to get Jamie to take sides with him and his actions. Garrett tells Jamie that there is nothing right or wrong, no natural morality. John Dutton’s anger spreads until he confesses, saying he will continue to try to kill Dutton to protect Jamie’s legacy. The scene ends with a hug between father and son as if admitting his former family to murder is the love Jamie needs.
Kayce examines the stolen horses from the introduction and meets Avery’s old hero. Monica and Tate notice that Monica is jealous; they recognize Kayce’s type and see that they are connected. When John picks up Summer home, they run over a calf stuck on the wrong side of the path. You stop to investigate the situation and shoot the heroes on the ground to help them.
The cowboys hit the barbed wire fence and supported the inner calf before being repaired. Summer admits that he is confused about the lives of the cows and why these men chose him. When she decides to take the rest of the way home, she and John seem to share practices on good terms, with Summer essentially saying that it does not understand; she trusts at least one cow, Yellowstone -sex.
In Texas, Jimmy puts a wild horse into full-time hard work. It seems like he’s barely able to get up, perhaps because of his rodeo injuries in the past or just being too strict in the parks. Although his girlfriend is not particularly impressed with his driving, he says Jimmy has tried hard and has shown that he is doing well. That evening, Jimmy begins to work on his rope skills on the advice of the other Texas cows.
The scene seamlessly returns to Yellowstone, where Lloyd teaches the children to lasso techniques. While Jimmy does the job alone, Lloyd and the boy seem to have found something in each other that they both lacked as they handle Rip’s anger and alien status. Lloyd asks the boy to apologize again to Rip and Beth for getting their good stuff back, and the boy suggests that Lloyd do the same.
While Walker composes a song in college that should serve as the official song for Teeter and Colby’s relationship, Lloyd and Mia stay away from the group. While he has just advised the boy to find a new way to apologize, Lloyd lets Walker’s song get into his skin, grabs Walker’s guitar, and turns it off. After the two exchanges, Lloyd pulls out a knife and stabs Walker in the chest. While the other fighters struggle with Walker’s injury and hit Lloyd to the ground, Mia leaves the college well.
The vet then tries to cure Walker and delivers the working aspirin but fails to remove the knife, which he fears it may get stuck in the bone. When Laramie sees her boyfriend screaming in pain and asking to be removed, she runs in and pulls out the knife in a bloody and heroic moment. The rest of the Wranglers, in turn, devote their actions to a barrel race. Back in the main house, Rip and John discuss what to do with Lloyd and agree that there should be no more women in the college, including expert hands like Teeter.
Monica and Kayce get ready to go to bed at a quieter time. Still, Monica admits that she continues to worry about the beautiful woman Kayce saw earlier. Kayce scares people and offers an alternative approach to dealing with jealousy more healthily. The following day, Rip pretends that Laramie and Teeter are liquidating before taking the men to a coral so that Walker and Lloyd can finally fight their feelings – the last man standing. Rip even got the boy to come and watch. It’s a brutal fight involving screaming and choking, and their murderous minds show that the show does not exist.
Walker and Lloyd continued fighting what Rip said for over an hour. When John returns, he enters the ring for unclear reasons. Rip says men will hate him if he does what he wants and goes in his place. After hugging Lloyd and telling him he loves her, Rip meets Lloyd and breaks his arm before leaving. Lloyd helps Walker, and the two go to John and say they’ve met him. There is no winner for this fight, and if Rip and John wanted it to serve as a lesson in preventing more conflicts from breaking out in college, it’s unclear how their feelings worked. But one must remember at least one thing: the boy has decided to be like John when he grows up.
