“Yellowstone” creator Taylor Sheridan refused to tell cast member Luke Grimes the ending of the show, despite apparently telling other cast members.

Grimes told “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon that Sheridan has not answered questions on how the rest of the “Yellowstone” story will play out. “I think some of the cast knows the end. Some have been told. Some haven’t,” Grimes told the host. “I don’t think Taylor, who writes our show, wants me to know either.”

Grimes theorized that knowing the progression of his character’s story may influence his behavior on-set. “I think that’s what we’re all kind of waiting to see. Can he step up and man up and do the things necessary to help the family keep the place or not?”

Here are a few forecasts I’ve thought up for the final chapters of the “Yellowstone” saga: we all know that the wrong brother always ends up running the Dutton-Yellowstone Ranch. Lee was supposed to be John Dutton’s heir, but he was killed in the first-ever episode of the show.

Similar storylines have run through prequels “1883” and “1923.” So even though Kayce is the natural heir to the ranch, is the show going to end with Jamie facing off against Beth, or perhaps all but one of the Dutton siblings dying? Maybe they all do, and we’re left with Tate inheriting the ranch to run it with Rip? (RELATED: ‘1923’ Star Brian Geraghty Says Taylor Sheridan ‘Tortured’ Cast During Training For Epic Show)

Of course, the epic ending that would piss almost everyone off would be for the land to return to the Rainwater family. The ranch was once tribal land, so surely it should go back to the stewards who protected it for millennia before the Dutton family showed up?
