List of The 10 Best Yellowstone Episodes

The Dutton family thrives on drama. Whether gathered at the dinner table or confronting threats to their land and legacy, high tension and raised voices are almost guaranteed. And for those daring to cross them, a one-way trip to the infamous “train station” often awaits.

Here are the top 10 episodes from Taylor Sheridan’s wildly successful drama, showcasing the very best of the Yellowstone series.


“No Good Horses” (Season 1, Episode 3) – Yellowstone kicks off with a compelling pilot, yet it truly hits its stride by the third episode. This pivotal moment delves deep into the emotional landscape of the Dutton family, marking the anniversary of Evelyn Dutton’s (played by Gretchen Mol) passing with poignant flashbacks. These scenes not only provide a heart-wrenching look at the family’s loss but also shed light on the complex character of Beth, offering much-needed backstory.

Amid the emotional turmoil, the episode doesn’t shy away from the show’s signature high-stakes drama. A particularly intense storyline sees Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) embarking on a daring rescue of a young girl from kidnappers in a sinister white van, while Tate Dutton (Brecken Merrill) has a close call with a venomous snake. This blend of deep emotional themes and edge-of-your-seat action underscores why Yellowstone captivates its audience episode after episode.


“The Unraveling, Part 1” (Season 1, Episode 8) – Any episode that delves deeper into the backstory of the show’s most intriguing character is a win. In the penultimate episode of the first season, we witness Rip (Cole Hauser) grappling with the consequences of killing a bear. This intense moment paves the way for a richer exploration of his character, as flashbacks reveal the journey that led him to become a part of the Dutton family. Meanwhile, the storyline shifts to focus on Kayce, who supports Monica (Kelsey Asbille) as she recovers from her recent head injury, adding layers of emotional depth and complexity to the narrative.


“Resurrection Day” (Season 2, Episode 7) – Fans rooting for Rip and Beth will eternally remember this episode as a pivotal moment in their relationship. The episode intensifies when the Beck brothers, with Neal McDonough portraying the archetypal villain, unleash a group of merciless men on Beth’s (Kelly Reilly) office, intending to assault and potentially kill her. In a heroic and timely entrance, Rip makes his way through a hail of bullets to rescue Beth, the woman he loves. In the aftermath, as a means to anchor her through the trauma, Rip declares his love for her, marking a significant milestone in their relationship.
