With season four’s premiere date still in question, Yellowstone fans don’t have much else to do other than wait, send up a small prayer for the characters decimated by season three’s finale, and of course, come up with theories about the series. With a rumored six season cap, Taylor Sheridan is on the down slope when it comes to scripting out his western epic, but what exactly does that mean for Yellowstone‘s end point? That’s what Reddit’s for—putting your collective cowboy hat holders together and figuring out the most likely resting place.

One Reddit user kicked things off with a likely enough theory that suggests that Yellowstone ranch has a clear heir apparent. In the current state of affairs, the Dutton family ranch is in a bit of a love triangle with the state of Montana, the Broken Rock Reservation, and the Dutton family feuding over ownership. But as this user points out, the Duttons have big money. Keeping the ranch was never about finances, but more about pride. The user adds:

As others on the post have pointed out, that’s a bit too convenient for the series, let alone Sheridan’s narrative style. But there is one part in there that several other users have pointed out as a big red flag—John’s grandson, Tate, is the common ground between two of the three entities. The son of John’s son, Kayce, and Broken Rock resident, Monica, Tate seems like the obvious compromise that keeps a Dutton in the mix while also incorporating the Broken Rock reservation who have long felt the land belonged to them all along.

It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen the Duttons and the Broken Rock reservation put their differences aside to deal with a greater evil (see: when Tate was kidnapped by full on white supremacists??). Tate also happens to be one of the few people that John doesn’t have unbridled hatred toward, so… we’re not saying that the end of Yellowstone is charted out, but if the land goes to anyone other than Tate, then we deserve a spinoff to see the massive fallout to come.

Until then, we have to wait on Season Four to see (1) who’s alive, and (2) how this power of attorney situation will work between Beth and Jamie. Hell, right now, who knows who owns that land.
