Yellowstone season 4 theories: Is Malcolm Beck really dead?

Yellowstone season three ended in a dramatic fashion for the Dutton family as three of them were targeted by an unknown enemy. So far, it has not been revealed who was behind the attack. However, some fans have been left wondering if the Beck brothers might have had something to do with it.

Is Malcolm Beck really dead in Yellowstone?

Malcolm Beck (played by Neal McDonough) was one of the main villains in Yellowstone season two.

Along with his brother Teal Beck (Terry Serpico), the pair waged war against a casino being built in the area.

Their conflict also put them at odds with the owner of the Dutton Ranch John Dutton (Kevin Costner) throughout the second outing of the series.

In order to get what they want, the pair were not afraid to get blood on their hands, organising violence against the Dutton family.

The most heinous of these attacks came when they targeted Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) in a vicious twist.

Rip (Cole Hauser) interceded the attack and killed both of the assailants, which John sent as a warning to Malcolm.

However, the head of the Dutton clan did not have his revenge until the end of season two

In the finale, John threatened Malcolm and shot him multiple times after his son Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) dispatched his brother.

Although, crucially, the series did not show Malcolm taking his final breath in the episode.

Given the moment of his killing was not shown, some fans think he might have found a way to survive.

“It’s implied that he’s dead but we didn’t actually see him die like we did his brother.”

Another fan named Sweetpeapickle agreed, adding: “Already said it. No dead body, no death. They made an assumption he would die.”

Some fans have also taken this a step further and been left wondering if he might have even had something to do with the Dutton attacks at the end of season three.

Posting on Reddit user WifeMomOsi wrote: “I have a couple of theories for who is behind everything.

“Malcolm isn’t really dead. We didn’t see him take his last breath.

“Under the direction of Malcolm himself, he and the militia makes it look like he died.

“And the attack is their revenge, on John, and Kayce. John was expected at the ranch.

“His attackers just happened to come across him before the ranch. If they got to the ranch, who knows who they would have also killed.”

Whether this theory has any truth to it is only likely to be revealed when season four airs.

Currently, the show has a release date of June 2021 planned.

Therefore, fans will have to wait until then to find out who survived and who was behind the brutal attack.

Yellowstone season 4 airs on Paramount Network in June 2021.
