WARNING: This article contains major spoilers from the Yellowstone Season 5 Premiere… The first hour of the Yellowstone Season 5 return brought tragedy to Kayce and Monica Dutton. At 37 weeks pregnant, Monica was involved in a car accident that killed the baby, a devastating event that will affect the family for a long time to come. Following the episode’s debut, stars Kelsey Asbille and Luke Grimes spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the tragic turn of events, and how it will change Kayce and Monica moving forward.
“It’s such a tragic loss and you really see Monica at her lowest point,” Asbille explained. “Throughout the show, she just wants to be a good mother, a good wife. A good person to her community, and this really shakes her beliefs.”
She added that there is some light at the end of the tunnel for Monica, however. “There’s a very definite moment when she chooses to live and she chooses to heal.”
According to Grimes, Kayce and Monica will find strength in each other and in their relationship in the wake of their loss, saying, “They chose to lean on each other; they’re dealing with a common pain together.”
Another cloud hangs over Kayce and Monica’s heads: the result of Kayce’s vision in the Season 4 finale, which he said showed him the “end” of them.
“When I read that, I immediately went to” Charlie Ridgely Taylor [Sheridan] and I thought, ‘Hey man, I know you don’t want me to know about the end of this story and that’s great, and I love that, but just tell me how to say this.’ He gave me enough to understand how to play the line, but didn’t give me anything away,” Grimes said. “But during season 5 you start to learn what that meant and specifically what Kayce saw, and then, their plans to continue in a way that makes sense to them.”
