    I have tried multiple times to reply on my phone, so the computer it is.

    Enjoyed the first two episodes and your discussion. Watching the baby die was heartbreaking, and then, the horse had to be shot. Tough night!

    Angela Blue Thunder despises Rainwater and solely blames him for not already having the Dutton’s Ranch land back. She views him as old and weak due to relying on a somewhat moral code. She is going to try to overthrow him. I think this will make Rainwater and Mo turn on her in the end. I heard Cole Hauser say Mo and Rip will have some scenes together this season. I can only hope we get to see them take out some trash!!!

    People seem to have forgotten or never watched season 4. Jamie’s bio-dad put a hit out for John, Kacey, and Beth. They even attacked the Ranch, which included Monica and Tate. When Jamie discovers this and confronts Randall. Randall confesses and even says he will keep trying to kill them, and Jamie does nothing. I do understand the Jamie and Beth dynamic is getting a tad old. However, I completely understand her current anger at Jamie. Got a feeling Jamie turns on the Dutton’s and it will be the straw that broke the camel’s back.
