Jennifer Landon’s Shock: Reflecting on the Jaw-Dropping Teeter Scene in Yellowstone
The Teeter Scene In Yellowstone That Shocked Jennifer Landon
The Paramount series “Yellowstone” has often shocked and surprised viewers since its debut in 2018. Co-created by “Sicario” and “Wind River” writer Taylor Sheridan, the series follow the Dutton family, owners of the Yellowstone ranch in Montana, and their various clashes with neighboring ranchers, government officials, and anyone else unfortunate enough to cross paths with them (via IMDb). With an ensemble cast that includes Kevin Costner, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, and Gil Birmingham, the show has continued to grow in popularity since its premiere.
While most of the show’s action focuses on the Duttons, the cast also includes a variety of ranch hands who work to keep the drama fresh. In Season 3, actress Jennifer Landon was introduced on “Yellowstone” as Teeter, a new ranch hand. Though many jokes were made about other characters’ inability to understand Teeter, her confidence quickly endeared her to the show’s audience. In a recent interview, Landon spoke about what it is like being on the show, and in the process, also spoke about some of the more shocking scenes Teeter has been involved in, highlighting one moment in particular. This is the Teeter scene in “Yellowstone” that shocked Jennifer Landon.
Teeter and Colby’s attack was unexpected for Landon
Speaking to Vegas Film Critic on YouTube, Jennifer Landon said that one particular scene between Teeter and Colby (Denim Richards) in Season 3, Episode 8 (“I Killed A Man Today”) impacted her immensely. In the episode, Teeter tries to convince Colby to go skinny-dipping with her in the river, a task in which she ultimately succeeds.
Unfortunately, shortly after disrobing, the two are cornered by sworn enemies of John Dutton (Kevin Costner). In response to encountering some of Dutton’s most-trusted allies, Wade Morrow (Boots Southerland) and his men use their horses to repeatedly stomp and trample over both Teeter and Colby. With the pair grievously injured in the attack, Morrow opts to leave them for dead.
“I wasn’t expecting that scene as an actor, so reading that was shocking, and shooting it was shocking too, but I loved it,” Landon said, before noting that it simply wasn’t possible to be any more vulnerable (or cold) than they were at that very moment. Landon also went on to talk about the headspace she was in when shooting the scene. Interestingly, it would seem that at least some of Teeter’s confidence in herself comes directly from the star.
“It’s interesting, I was talking about … how oddly uninhibited I felt, I guess because there’s no inhibition for Teeter,” Landon said, referring to the moment when Teeter strips down before going into the river. “Teeter’s like ‘This is my birthday suit, it’s as I was made.'”
Funnily enough, Landon also added that she thinks Teeter was after this particular moment for quite some time. “Basically, Episode 1 through 7 is just Teeter trying to take her clothes off, so in 8, when she got the go-ahead,” Landon said, finishing her sentence with a snap of her fingers.
