The Top 5 Yellowstone Characters Fans Still Love to Hate
Even in the best show there's always hated characters.
Here are Yellowstone ’s most love-to-hate characters ranked.
5. Roarke Morris
The disappointment of watching a great actor struggle with a poorly written role is a feeling that many fans of Yellowstone can relate to. As Season 3 came to a close, fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the show, and many expressed their dissatisfaction with this character. Despite the show's success, it's clear that he leaves a lot to be desired.
Josh Holloway (of Lost fame) took on the role of Roarke Morris, a hedge fund manager with a devious plan to gain control of the Duttons' valuable land. As avid viewers of the show know, this is a familiar motif when it comes to Yellowstone's antagonists. However, a recurring criticism of Roarke is that his character hasn't been fully explored.
Despite his consistent presence throughout the third season, upon closer examination, fans couldn't help but notice that his actions lacked the significant impact they had hoped for.
4. Summer Higgins
Summer Higgins, played by Piper Perabo, was a controversial character among fans before she even made her debut on the show. She is a fierce activist from Portland who fights against the state-funded police force that protects the cruel practices of industrialized farming and the slaughter of innocent animals.
As soon as the Season 4 trailer was released, fans wasted no time in voicing their opinions on the character, even though they had only seen glimpses of her. They flocked to the official Yellowstone Instagram, and the majority of opinions seemed to agree, with many assuming that this new character would bring a "woke" agenda to the show.
Some even went so far as to predict that she would be nothing more than an annoying side character destined to meet her demise at the hands of the formidable Dutton boys.
3. Monica Dutton
Monica Dutton is a character that elicits strong reactions from fans, with some holding her in high regard while others, the greater majority, despise her. There is no middle ground when it comes to Monica, and the reasons for this wide range of emotions are numerous. Critics argue that she lacks depth, despite having endured numerous traumatic experiences and facing turmoil throughout her journey in Yellowstone.
While she may not be everyone's cup of tea, it is undeniable that Monica plays a crucial role in the series, contributing to its overall narrative and dynamics. Fans may love the drama she adds to the show, but as a character they just can't get on board.
2. Jamie Dutton
Jamie Dutton, a character that has divided fans, is often seen as difficult to love but easy to hate. The story of how he became a member of the Dutton family is undeniably tragic, which creates a sense of sympathy for him. However, his journey has been filled with obstacles that make it challenging to fully support Jamie.
The moment viewers discovered the decision he made regarding Beth, it drew a clear line between supporters and critics. Yet, there are other choices he has made throughout the series that further tarnish his image as a good guy.
Beth, John Dutton's daughter, is a complex character who possesses both emotional instability and unwavering loyalty to her father. She shows a fierce determination to support and protect him, going to great lengths to achieve her goals. However, her impulsive nature often leads to unintended consequences that harm those around her.
There is no middle ground or willingness to compromise in Beth's personality; she relentlessly pursues her desires, even if it means bulldozing anyone who gets in her way.
When it comes to discussion and negotiation, Beth's approach tends to involve the use of foul language and violence. In a national poll, Beth was voted the most hated character on the show by a whopping 62%.
