Yellowstone season four has been airing on The Paramount Network and the Western melodrama has introduced new threats. Caroline Warner (played by Jacki Weaver) is the unstoppable CEO of Market Equities and she is keen to acquire the Dutton ranch. John Emmet Tracy plays one of her assistants in the series and he opened up about Caroline’s ultimate aims.
Yellowstone season four shed some light on who was behind the anonymous attacks on the Dutton family.
With Garrett Randall (Will Patton) at the forefront of the conflict, fans were keen to know what happened next.
Yet the Duttons faced bigger threats as Market Equities continued to cause obstacles in the road.
Caroline Warner star Weaver has since opened up about Beth Dutton’s (Kelly Reilly) potential demise.
The pair have locked horns over the future of the ranch and Tracy said things could come to a head soon.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, he said: “Caroline Warner, Ellis Steele and Market Equities have fought similar battles many times in the past.
“And while it may be true that they’ve never encountered anything like the Dutton Family, it must be said that the Duttons have never faced off against anyone as determined and well-equipped as Caroline Warner.
“Caroline works calmly, methodically and dispassionately. She is not only unyielding, but also extremely prepared and uniquely qualified to play the long game.
“That game may last longer than the Duttons expect or that they are prepared for.”
With this in mind, it seems the Market Equities big boss is not going down without a fight.
The Ellis Steele actor said Caroline Warner and Beth Dutton are “cut from the same cloth”.
He added: “It is hard to choose a favourite Dutton character, but if I had to, it would probably be Beth, who has resonated so deeply with fans of the show.
“I think many people would love to be able to move through the world with Beth’s singular focus and fearless determination.
“She shocks people, but she also motivates and inspires people.
“I think Caroline Warner and Beth Dutton are cut from the same cloth.
“In another set of circumstances, they would be best friends and allies.
“Since fate has brought them together in these circumstances, they are each going to bring everything they have to the table.
“Ellis Steele quickly felt the hurricane energy of their first meeting, and I am excited for fans of the show to see how things play out as the storm intensifies.”
However, Beth may be able to take down Market Equities with her final playing card in the season finale.
Led by Summer Higgins (Piper Perabo), protests have slowed down Market Equities’ expansion plans somewhat.
This could all result in some serious damage towards the company, which is what Beth wanted.
Speaking of his character’s involvement, actor Tracy added: “When we first met Ellis Steele at the beginning of season three, he is literally and figuratively out of his element.
“He is introduced with a group of other suits standing on a windblown hilltop in the backcountry.
“In those early episodes, he and his colleagues are using big city, corporate policies and tactics in a place and culture with a very different worldview and way of life. But he is focused and learns quickly.
“As season four progresses, he has dug the heels of his expensive Italian shoes into Montana soil and, along with Caroline Warner, he plans to give the Dutton family the fight of their lives.”
