* Warning: spoilers for the Yellowstone season four finale below!
After a turbulent whirlwind romance, the wedding bells ring in the Yellowstone Fourth season finale. Rip (Cole Hauser) and Beth (Kelly Reilly) tied the knot in unexpectedly unexpected ways, and the stars opened up the surprising milestone in their characters’ relationship to Cassie DiLaura.
“I mean, it went pretty wild,” says Hauser, reflecting on the big event. “Your storms and your golden dress, your father [Kevin Costner as John Dutton] and I look at her and say, ‘What the hell is she up to now?’ Then she has a priest whom she kidnapped. It’s pretty wild! “
In Sunday’s oversized finale, Beth has a lot to plan and plan, and she wants to get something very important out of the way first – making her relationship with Rip a solid commitment.
So she shows up in a revealing gold dress (which she wore to sneak into a marital prison trailer and threaten information from an inmate, that’s a whole thing) and a priest who has never met anyone, and declares that today is the day.
“Even as actors we sit there trying to put all things together and connect all the dots and you think, ‘This is fucking crazy,’ you know what I mean?” Hauser said of the big scene. “[But] it all comes together and there is actually this beautiful moment. I found it pretty touching in the end. “
Though the ceremony is certainly unorthodox, Beth still gets her father to lead her to the altar, and Rip surprises her to the point of tears by presenting her with his late mother’s wedding ring, which she hadn’t expected at all.
“I love her wedding and she is just so typical of Beth,” reflected Reilly. “She’s just not interested in a wedding party or a wedding dress or something like that. All she cares about is being his wife and she knows that …
The truly romantic event is crowned when the priest tells Beth’s father that he “will not file a complaint”. When John asks what he means, the priest explains that Beth kidnapped him at gunpoint to perform the ceremony, and she explains that she only threatened him with “a small gun”.
Reilly said the whole wedding was “hilarious and poetic at the same time”.
“It’s just perfect. It’s the perfect wedding,” she added. “When I read this I had to laugh because I knew we were going to get married this season, but I didn’t know how.”
As it turned out, the wedding was the perfect mix of humor and romance and a nice break from the intense drama that was to come from the finale.
