Yellowstone Season 2 ‘Premiere’ Recap: Beth Plots to Ruin Both Jamie and Dan — Plus, John Collapses

The second season of Yellowstone on CBS debuted on Sunday, and Beth was right out of the gate.

'cause next time, I'm doin' it myself." The veterinarian who happened to be at the ranch at the end of the episode cauterized John's ruptured ulcer, not the colon cancer that had caused him to collapse!
