In an exclusive clip from this week's Yellowstone, Rip (played by Cole Hauser) and Beth (played by Kelly Reilly) share a sweet moment while they're alone on the ranch.
Season 3 will focus more on Beth and Rip's romance, according to the actors.
"Freight Trains and Monsters" airs Sunday, June 28 at 9 p.m. on Paramount Network.
In the midst of all the dysfunction and bloodshed on Dutton family ranch, Beth and Rip's relationship (played by Kelly Reilly and Cole Hauser, respectively) gives Yellowstone fans a sense of hope — or at the very least, a respite from everything else. While their relationship is far from perfect, there's no question that the two have an undeniable chemistry.
During the season 3 premiere, which aired last Sunday, Beth and Rip took their romance to a new level: In a moment of vulnerability, Beth refers to Rip as her "new boyfriend" at the local convenience store, and then things get steamy between the two on-again lovers back at the ranch.
The all-new Yellowstone clip above, however, shows that there's plenty more where that came from. In this scene from the upcoming episode,"Freight Trains and Monsters," Rip runs outside to quiet a coyote (or so he thinks). With his shotgun in hand, he realizes that the animal sounds are actually coming from Beth, who is embracing some rare alone time on the ranch. After Beth points out that they can do whatever they want since everyone else is away, Rip replies,"Baby, you've been doing whatever you want your whole damn life." Then Rip flicks on the lights, plays some music, and slow dances with Beth under the spotlight.
And just like that, Beth and Rip prove that they're forever relationship goals. Luckily, Kelly Reilly confirms there's more romance on the way, and that season 3 will show a "deeper experience of love" for the couple.
It all stems from the moment during season 2 where Rip came to Beth's rescue during the brutal attack: "We know who Beth is. We've seen the warrior aspect of her, the killer, the loyal daughter. I've never really seen Beth as vulnerable, or toy with the idea that she could be happy," the actress tells GooodHousekeeping.com. "The fact that she allows Rip into her heart — she knows he's there, but the attack changed her — lets her settle in to him being her guy, and not to fight that anymore." But knowing the couple's complicated history and Beth's tendency to push people away, it may not be smooth sailing, after all.
