Dutton’s family tree 1923. Although the Taylor Sheridan series continues to confuse things (the actor yellowstone The franchise can’t even figure out how the characters are related), 1923 Episode 3’s shocking ending seems to have settled the family lineage issue.
1923 Episode 3 saw the bitter end of James Badge Dale’s John Dutton Sr., hitherto presumed to be Kevin Costner’s John Dutton III’s great-grandfather.His death called it into question, and Dale told TV Insider that he’s as confused as we are, and that he “has no idea” who John Sr. is to John III. once they figure it out, they can let me know [laughs]”
“We used to talk about this all the time on set, and we just didn’t get it,” he said. “I know Luke Grimes. [Kacey Dutton in Yellowstone], and he called me and was like, “I don’t know how we’re related either.” we were trying to figure it out. I think Taylor is probably planning a few more curveballs. ”
John’s death itself has a narration 1923 Episode 1 makes sense. In his second scene of the prequel premiere, 1883Elsa Dutton (Isabel May). Her words reveal a lot about the fate of her two younger brothers, John and Spencer (played by Dale and Brandon Skrenner in ). 1923).
Elsa, John, and Spencer are the children of John and Margaret Dutton (Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s characters are 1883).in her 1923 In the narration, Elsa says that of her parents’ three children, “only one will live to see her child grow up. Only one will decide the fate of this family between the recession and the 20th century.” will carry all the other hellish fates that have thrown upon them.”
The narration came as viewers watched Spencer walk through an African landscape with his partner in hunting a dead lion. This was the first hint that it was Spencer who would carry on the family name. And now that both Elsa and John Sr. are dead, it seems even more likely.
But John’s son, Jack (Darren Mann), was also able to take over the line. Who made John a senior? Here we break down the possibilities.
Who is John Dutton III’s father?
The birth of the second John Dutton 1923Initially, after John’s death, Emma Dutton (Marley Shelton) revealed that she was pregnant, or Jack was John’s nickname and Mann’s young cowboy was actually Junior.
Then I remembered one important thing. John III’s father was not John Jr., but John II (played by Dabney Coleman). yellowstone Season 2). Juniors are named after their parents, but “II” could be someone’s niece/nephew, grandchild, etc. in the family.
Who is John Dutton II’s father?
Both Spencer and Jack are currently struggling in passionate romances, but it seems most likely that a son will be born, named after the late John, John Dutton II. If Spencer was John II’s father, he would be John III’s grandfather. If Jack is John II’s father, then John Sr. would be John III’s great-grandfather.
The shootout that killed John Sr. injured Jack and his fiancée, Elizabeth Strafford (Michelle Randolph), but appeared to be non-fatal (despite his many injuries). , I really doubt that Harrison Ford’s Jacob Dutton will die any time soon).However, it remains to be seen whether Elizabeth’s gunshot wound affects her ability to conceive.
Helen Mirren’s Carla Dutton wrote Spencer a letter urging him to return to Montana from Africa after his brother’s murder. Any of these marriages could result in the birth of John II.
Elsa narrates that it will be one of James and Margaret’s children who will carry on the family legacy for years to come.She seems most likely to be Spencer now, but it’s also possible she was referring to John Sr.’s son. 1923 It positions Spencer as a major character over Jack. Our money is in Spencer being John III’s grandfather.
