Stories From the Bunkhouse (Ep. 9) | Yellowstone | Paramount Network

(man shouting) – C'mon.

(country music) – So Jimmy's grandfatheris his last remnant of his family.

– It's bad news.

– And I think that theYellowstone and the bunkhouse has become this seed of a new family.

So over the course of the second season, Jimmy is feeling more and more at home and feeling more andmore part of something larger than himself.

– No shit.

– And then when his grandfather is killed, he feels isolated and lost.

And then to have thesupport of his new family step in and help, he both realizes thathe's now part of something larger than himself.

He is really truly apart of the Yellowstone.

– I'm gonna show you how to get rid of problems so they don't become new problems.

You hear me?- But he also realizes for the first time what it means to be apart of the Yellowstone and what it truly costs tobe a part of the Yellowstone, (gun cocks)because they go and commit murder.

(gun cocks)- It's bittersweet to feel supported by this family but also to realize just whatthat family is capable of at the same time.

– All right, go get your coat.

– The scene where Ryan leaves with the rest of the branded men, – Ryan.

Ryan.

– I think that that's the first time that Colby really realizes that there is a difference between Ryan and himself.

Ryan got up and pursued them.

It wasn't as if they pluckedyou out and did this.

It was like you went after it.

– Rip, can I have a word? – And it was something that was different because that might have been something that you and I havenever really talked about or spoken about, so I never saw that coming and trying to hopefully getyou to understand at the end when I'm like, “Where are you going?” – What are you doing? – It's like, “Don't youunderstand what this is?” – I know.

– So I feel like there'sthis huge, kind of, not conflict, but like, just this confusion offeeling abandoned as well.

– I remember when I was young, and my older brotherwould go and do things, and I would just wanna go.

I'd just wanna go.

And it would be, “You can't go.

“It's not for you.

“You don't even know what it quite is yet, “and you're not even able to choose it “for what it is yet, so you can't.

” And not that Ryan's an older brother, but kinda maybe could.

And there's definitely that moment where he goes to pursue something that's important to him, and Colby is like, “What about me?”, and we have a check-in.

(actors cross-talking) And the check-in is, “You can't come.

” and that's a really, it's a wonderfully non-spoken moment line where we see what you're about and what myguy thinks he's gonna choose, and then you go, “Well, thenwhat's gonna happen next?” – He doesn't wear the brand.

– He will.

– The presumption is thathe has put in his time, his pay, his work, and that everyone's gonna accept him to do what is going to be done.

And I'm not sure if it'sspoken where they're going, but I think it's presumed that it's going to be criminal and violent and you can't come back from it.

And they don't kick him out of the car, so it looks like he's going into the matrix of “You can't come back.

” and so we'll see.

Redemption's a big theme in every character and how far can you go and can you come home (actors cross-talking) based on what you've done? And this character's just on his way out, so we'll see.

– They had that trailer rigged up with, they were rigging itall day with explosives.

And of course they were disarmed and of course they werebeing incredibly safe, but there was a moment whereI stepped into the trailer and looked up, and the entire thing was just spiderwebbed with dynamite and fuses and explosives.

I just opened the door and just was paralyzed.

And there was a guy over there like, “(whispering) It's fine.

You're fine.

Don't worry.

None of this is gonna explode.

“You're fine.

” Just like this guy, it was spooky.

– Get the fuck off thebalcony, it's gonna blow.

– That's a lot of explosivesin a small building that I'm just openingand slamming the door over and over again.

Like, “Yeah, it's fine, it'sprobably not gonna blow up.

” (building exploding) – We blow up a lot of stuff on this show.

(building exploding) – That's true.

– And it doesn't get old.

(trailer exploding) You know it's always a happy day, like, “Oh, today we're gonna (gun fires) (exploding)blow something else up.

Like kids, we just wannasee a firework go off and watch a flash andfeel the heat and clap.

So it's always exciting.

I missed that one at the end of the night.

I didn't actually get to watch it go off.

– Oh, yeah, we got outtathere at three a.

m.

– He ended up being super late.

– Similar to the bull, they were like, “Hey, let's, let's get you away from this fireball.

” (beeping) – Tate just represents this light.

And I think him going missing, I think is this reality.

Not only do they love him, because it's the son and grandson, but there's no holds barred now with what's going on with the family and with the people thatare attacking the family.

– You're the one he loves the most.

– But also just as a symbol for the show, this light-hearted, pure spirit, the thought process thatsomething bad could be happening, and I think just kinda, it raises the stakes to such a level that nothing matters.

No cause or consequence matters.

– What's going on? – Baby, he's gone.

– What do you mean gone? – And that anything andeverything will happen in order to get this light back.

– The cows being killed was a violation of the rules.

Beth being attacked (man and woman yelling) was an escalation and aviolation of the rules.

And then Tate being taken just feels like the last straw, the last violation.

And I think after thatthe gloves are really off.

And it's a tremendousescalation for Kayce, too.

And we know what Kayce is capable of, and for him to have hisson taken feels like, his gloves come off.

And it's hard to imagine how he'll take revenge for that.
