Yellowstone Star Luke Grimes Drops Big Hints: Epic Finale To Bring Major Shifts For Kayce Dutton


The Paramount Network’s hit drama series, Yellowstone, has been a roller-coaster journey for audiences since it first exploded onto our screens in 2018. Known for its gripping storytelling and stellar performances, the series has managed to captivate viewers across the globe, taking them through a labyrinth of emotions with every twist and turn of its riveting plotlines.

As we now stand on the brink of the show’s fifth and final season, the palpable anticipation among viewers has reached unprecedented levels. Everyone is bracing for what promises to be an enthralling farewell run.

This season is particularly noteworthy for a crucial character who has steadily grown on viewers since the very first episode – Kayce Dutton, portrayed by the versatile Luke Grimes. His nuanced performance has breathed life into an intriguingly layered and deeply compelling character. Grimes has skillfully maneuvered his character’s evolution, navigating the complex relationships and personal struggles intrinsic to the Dutton family saga.

As we edge closer to the show’s ultimate climax, the whispers of ‘what next?’ have started resonating more strongly among the fan community. And from what we’ve heard so far, the answers will not disappoint.

The final string of episodes is set to be a treasure trove of landmark moments, especially for Kayce Dutton. As the show’s narrative prepares to bid farewell, fans can look forward to a thrilling unraveling of the layers of Kayce’s character, promising a decisive end to an unforgettable journey.

In an exclusive featurette clip included with the Blu-ray and DVD release of Yellowstone Season Five, Part One, Grimes shed light on the evolution of his character. Kayce, he shared, is a character that has evolved slower than anticipated. He’s at a crossroads, often torn between his loyalty to his birth family and his responsibilities towards his wife and son.

Luke Grimes mused, “The arc for Kayce is that he sort of hasn’t evolved as much as you wanted him to. It’s always: ‘What do I choose and where do I go? Where do I stand, and where does my loyalty lie?’ He doesn’t know if it’s the Dutton legacy or his own personal family.”

The Coming of Age of Kayce Dutton: A New Chapter Begins

From t he series’s inception, Kayce’s character has been marked by a struggle between what he wants and believes he should be. But with the upcoming episodes, this could change. Grimes hints at a more definitive path for Kayce.


Kayce is the last surviving legitimate son of John Dutton, played by Hollywood veteran Kevin Costner. His older brother Lee’s tragic death in the show’s pilot episode set the stage for Kayce to inherit the family’s massive Montana cattle ranch. In a surprising twist, John has already handed Kayce the responsibility of running the day-to-day operations of Yellowstone.

Speaking on this development, Grimes expressed his enthusiasm. “I think this a huge moment for Kayce,” he said. “It’s his legacy, and I’m honestly really excited about this chapter for Kayce and Monica, because I think we’re going to see a whole different side to them.”

A New Era for the Dutton Family: Embracing Change

This new responsibility is a big moment for Kayce and wife Monica (played by Kelsey Asbille) and their son Tate (Brecken Merrill). Grimes believes audiences will be thrilled to see how these characters grow and adapt to their new roles as caretakers of the Dutton family legacy.

“I think with Monica being willing to do this one more time, to go back to the ranch and try it again, it shows a new side of her,” Grimes observed, hinting at Monica’s own personal growth and resilience.

Yellowstone Faces Production Hurdles: The Waiting Game

Despite this exciting tease of what’s to come for Kayce and his family, the timeline for the release of the remaining episodes of Yellowstone is still uncertain. Production has been delayed due to an ongoing writers’ strike, with Yellowstone’s co-creator Taylor Sheridan reportedly halting work in solidarity. This strike has affected not only Yellowstone, its prequel 1923, and the upcoming spinoff starring Matthew McConaughey.

As fans wait with bated breath for the final chapters of Yellowstone, it’s clear that the upcoming episodes promise an exhilarating ride with monumental changes for the Dutton family. The slow evolution of Kayce Dutton is ready to accelerate into an exciting crescendo as he steps up to embrace his legacy and define his future.
