Yellowstone fans spotted an inconsistency in a major character

Yellowstone fans spotted an inconsistency in a major character

Yellowstone viewers have always loved questioning the logic behind Paramount’s series, but fans’ new obsession is on a whole new level.

Taylor Sheridan is not only known for his films and series: he also has a reputation for omitting details whenever possible. Which has the gift of exasperating the most meticulous fans who, like true detectives, launch into masterful theories and questions. But Yellowstone does not suffer from this lack of logic of which it is accused: on the contrary, the multigenerational story of the Duttons continues to be emulated.

Despite everything, like cowboys, conscientious fans are quick to draw the keyboard to point out inconsistencies on social networks. A bit like Rip who knows how to keep the ranch employees in line, the spectators do not hesitate to point out what they consider to be absurdities on the side of Yellowstone.

Amid the reproaches and other nitpicks, there is however a subject which has just been raised and which disturbs more than the usual few fussy fans: it concerns the finances of a protagonist of the series. More specifically, the Dutton’s unloved brother: Jamie.

A big inconsistency for Jamie Dutton’s character in Yellowstone?

On the Yellowstone subreddit, a fan announced that Jamie’s ability to buy his own ranch in season 4 on an attorney general’s salary was impossible.

“So I looked up how much government salaries are in Montana and was surprised to see that Jamie, as attorney general, makes more money than John who is governor,” jlive9 wrote. “The governor makes $118,000 while the attorney general makes $145,000. We’re talking pre-tax money, so there’s no way he could afford a property worth more than $1.5 million unless he took bribes.”

The event takes place in the episode entitled “Phantom Pain” , the second of season 4. Jamie decides to free himself from John Dutton’s influence and buy his own property. The place is large, has a stream, a house, enclosures, livestock, agricultural equipment…

On paper, we can say that this is clearly a good deal. But with the asking price not specified, it’s difficult to know exactly how much Jamie had to raise for his ranch. Nonetheless, fans estimated that the property was worth more than $1.5 million.

However, Yellowstone is not particularly known for its fact-checking: what matters are the stories it tells. Which certainly explains why so many viewers continue to impatiently await the broadcast of the second part of season 5.
