Yellowstone plot hole: Fans spot glaring error with Duttons’ security system

Yellowstone: Ryan Bingham discusses character Walker in 2019

The lives of wealthy ranch owner John Dutton and his family have been threatened multiple times throughout the first three seasons of Yellowstone. However, some critical fans of the Paramount series realised a lot of trouble could have been avoided had the ranch simply improved their security systems.

Viewers have picked up on a rather distracting plot hole in the first three seasons of Paramount’s hit Western series Yellowstone.

Although the criticism could be applied throughout the show’s tenure up to this point, it became particularly egregious when John Dutton (played by Kevin Costner) came under fire in season two.

Owner of the largest contiguous ranch in the US, John is constantly trying to shield both his land and family from his interfering business and political rivals.

In season two, the Duttons took on greedy capitalists Teal (Terry Serpico) and Malcolm Beck (Neal McDonough), who aimed to build a new casino on John’s land.

Their schemes eventually turned violent when the Beck brothers realised they needed to resort to desperate measures to be in on a chance of persuading John to relent his grip on the coveted ranch.

Midway through season two, the Becks’ hired hands bit off more than they could chew when they tried to go through John’s fearless daughter, Beth (Kelly Reilly).

Their vile aims came to a head in the season finale, which saw a distraught Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) search desperately for his kidnapped son, Tate (Brecken Merrill).

Thankfully, Tate was eventually retrieved, but fans were left questioning why the Beck brothers’ nigh impenetrable fortress was so much better protected when compared to the Yellowstone.

While the apparent plot blunder was raised back when the second season finale was initially released, showrunner Taylor Sheridan didn’t seem to go to any trouble to address the issue in season three.

Redditor shadowlovesme posted: “All these multimillion dollar homes and nobody locks their doors or has security systems armed.

“Meanwhile they need a battering ram to get into the dump where Tate is being held.”

From Yellowstone’s very first episode, the Duttons are established as one of the wealthiest families in Montana thanks to their successful business and considerable political presence.

However, despite their mind-blowing bank balance, the ranch owners can’t seem to be able to afford even a decent lock for their own front door.

To make matters worse, Dutton’s rival since the first season, Dan Jenkins (Danny Huston) was also called out for his lacklustre precautions.

Another fan commented: “He has ONE bodyguard? One? Maybe should have had a team.”

To which someone replied: “If you are referring to Dan Jenkins useless bodyguard, that infuriated me.”

“He’s had multiple people break into his house this season (with the intent to harm him).”

Sadly, the Duttons still left themselves wide open to attacks in the latest instalment, which concluded with a devastating series of ambushes on the ranch owner and his children.

Viewers are now waiting on the edge of their seats to discover if they made it out alive, though the entire tragedy could have been avoided if they had taken these fans’ advice.

Yellowstone will return with season 4 in 2021 on Paramount and Peacock.
