Yellowstone’s third season went out with a bang. Literally. Someone attempted or successfully murdered members of the Dutton family in the final episode. A mail bomb arrived and exploded on Beth in her former office. Kayce was attacked by gunfire in his office and someone shot John multiple times as he helped a tourist with a flat tire.
The cliffhanger finale left their survival unknown although John was shown alive after the shooting. The episode, The World is Purple, also set up three different parties who could have been behind the carnage: ruthless land developer Market Equities, tribal chairman Thomas Rainwater or another Native American, or Jamie Dutton.
