As Wes Bentley told TV Insider, Jamie Dutton is well, truly, and — let’s face it — deservedly afraid of Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly). Jamie has done some pretty awful things to Beth back in the day, and Beth, in turn, has made it extremely clear that she hates him with the burn of a scorching desert.
Per Bentley, Beth’s primal hatred and ability to deliver pain on any given front has caused Jamie to secretly rank her very high on his personal “people to be afraid of” list. “He wouldn’t admit it,” Bentley said about Jamie’s fear of Beth. “She may not know the same things he does, but she is as clever and as smart as him and can do the kind of damage he knows lasts.”
Season 4 of “Yellowstone” may show how justified Jamie’s fear of Beth is, but judging by Bentley’s comments, a fearsome reckoning wouldn’t exactly surprise him.
